is something burning?

hi all, i've got an 07 impreza and i just put on some bc br shocks.

got all four tuned up good and then had them aligned at a pro shop.



but on the first run i took to test them out i noticed a burning smell. i'm not sure what it is.


i looked under the hood and i've searched for weeks but i can't find anything melting. there was a small tube that i'm guessing came out from air conditioner and it was dripping down onto the pipe, but it's been moved and i still smell burning. not as much smoke...


has anyone had the same problem, or can anyone tell me what going on before i destroy my scooby?

I don't think your shocks have anything to do with your burning smell. Do you have an aftermarket d/p? That a/c drain hose your talking about will start to smell like burnt rubber if you do have an aftermarket d/p and you don't move it.

no, everything is stock engine wise. it only started after i lowred it. that makes me think something that might have been fine is touching something now but i jsut cant find it.

are any of the plastic pieces rubbing against your tire in the wheel well?
