Allowable sag when plow lifted?

    Just mounted an old Western plow on my '99 K1500 Suburban. When I lift the plow, measuring from the centerline of the rear wheel to the fender opening after bouncing the truck, that measurement increases 1/4".

    Same measurement at front wheel decreases 7/8"

    At front bumper, bumper goes down 1 1/4"

    Is this sag acceptable? (no ballast in rear at this time) Thanks

    I always like to measure center of wheel to fender lip. I believe around 1 " is perfectly acceptable, you are well within that and with some balast in the back you will be all set.
