    I installed a Meyer 7.5 E-47, on my Bronco, do I need to do anything to the front suspension, not looking to do any serious comercial plowing just mainly my own and I am sure all the family will be calling too :) Any help from previous Bronco owners will be appreciated, Thanks

    My dad and I have used Broncos for commercial plowing for over 15 years. Best way to go IMO. We have never had a problem. There are two different front GAWR (Gross Axle Weight Ratios) for those trucks though. If you have the heavier of the two your likely ok. If you have the 2800lb one then you will likely want to get air bags or stronger springs. AirLift makes a great kit for those. I have them on mine. And the only reason I have them is because I plow with a lifted truck with softer springs. I think you will be fine.

    Put some timbrerns on the front. They take the place of the factory bump stops for the suspension. The support the weight of the plow and take the stress off the stock suspension. Add heavy duty shocks to the front and you should be set! Make sure you have manual hubs and keep up on the maintenance of the truck. Transmission cooling and charging are real important!
