    I put my factory control arms on with a set of hotchkis lowering springs and I just noticed I forgot to put the rubber snubbers in on the upper arms. Found them left over in another box of parts. First question is will these even fit now with the lowered springs? Second do I really need them? Are the arms going to bang off the frame now?? Before I go any further I figured I would ask first. Thanks

    I ran without them with Hotchkis springs for years, no problems. The only time there might be a possibility of the arm touching the frame is when raising the car with the wheels hanging and even then it would occur slowly as the vehicle is lifted.
