Does this seem normal?

Today I took a ride for about 45 minutes in the heat, with the AC on full blast. When I got home I noticed a large puddle of water under the car. It was coming from above the front suspension. When I placed it on the lift it kept leaking. It was leaking more in intermittent spurts other than dripping. It has stopped since then. It is definitely water (likely condensation), but seemed excessive. Is this anything to worry about??? Has anyone else noticed this? It left a rather large puddle on the driveway that I noticed after putting it on the lift.

Sounds normal. The car literally has no water anywhere on-board, so it has to be condensation from AC.

I went back to look one more time on the lift and noticed this drain hole above the puddle. I am feeling better about this now, lol, just seemed like an abnormal amount of liquid.

They all do it. I'll have water on the passenger door bottom from it also. All is good.

No sweat (literally) if you’re seeing that. It means your AC is working! Come down here to Louisiana with 99% humidity... it is literally a stream of water coming off of the evaporator coil. You’re good!
