    That A/C line is a pain! How did you guys bend yours? Also, it seems like it will be touching the CCRM by the time it clears the blower.

    is it the stock condenser? Have you tried a tubing bender?

    Aftermarket condenser, I broke the OEM on the first attempt to bend this line. Right now I have the line disconnected

    I bought a tubing Bender but it wasn't large enough for that line

    I couldnt figure out on the instructions how it was to be bent. I was able to bend mine enough carefully with some channel locks to get mine together and just enough room for my 90* off the blower

    there are a couple of different types of tubing benders. You can borrow/rent them at autozone.

    I broke mine at the "T" where the sensor goes in. Have mine disconnected as well. Luckily those lines are pretty cheap and easy to acquire. I think we're talking the same line...
