    Why wont the plow dealer put the plow i want on the front, said i needed 5600 front end, but if i put the heavier springs on it they still wont put it on because door sticker hasnt been changed, also is it necessary to do anyway to put a 7 to 800lb plow on the front?

    Liability.

    You're overweight if you load the CC up with peeps and the plow.

    :laughing: because we always take 6 people with us when we plow. I guess they have to cover their bases....but c'mon.

    They have to go by the sticker regardless, or if you did a lot of business with this dealer they might work with you. If you do upgrade the springs, don't bother with the diesel plow prep springs which are "CC" code springs. Go right to the "AA" code springs which are f550 springs. You won't regret it.

    I didn't say it made sense, just that's why they won't.

    Actually, for those companies that hire all the H2B, they might just load them up. :rolleyes:

    OP, I have an 8611LP on mine, but I have the 5600# front axle.
