Mine are clear and don't appear as though rubbing will be an issue.

Its only OK if your willing to put up with it. Sounds like they need to either figure out the problem or change yours over to the sno-pro springs. If yours rub you can bet lots of others do the same. Keep at em!

Why not try inverting your shock/spring like the Sno Pro's. Can't hurt. I will look at my bud's Patriot compared to my Sno Pro F7 and see what I can see.

Looks like they just plain goofed on the stn setup (or put the springs on upside down). Does it look like enough clearance to invert the spring? From the picture it looks like there isn't.

i rode my f7 this weekend . this sled rocks !!! almost fliped it over !! i chould not belive the power diff between my 00 zr . my shock springs have about a 1/4 inch clearance now guess they just had to find there resting point :D i don't think it will be a problem ? but now i wounder about the tunnel cracking??? and the sway bar it only makes sence it lifts the inside ski when in a cornner it should turn better without it !
