    I Have An 05 F-350 Superduty And I'm Not Happy The Way It Carries My 8ft X Blade. Front End Sags. I Do Have The Snowplow Prep Package, Timbrens But It's Not Doing The Job.. I Talked With The Dealer And I'm Trying To Put A Set Of 7000# Coils In The Front Of The Truck. Has Anybody Done This And If So Does It Help W/ Carrying The Plow/and Will It Raise The Front To Level The Truck Out Without The Plow?

    Thanks

    Fisher's e-match recommends 800 lbs for a 05 f-350 diesel, 4wd, crewcab w/6ft box for an 8ft.X. Try that and see if you are any happier, if youre set up is that much different go to their sit and try the e-match and see what it recommends. FYI bulb type doesn't matter.
