    is that a sign that your front suspension on that was a little tired?

    probably

    i do plan on replacing the coil springs with heavy duty new ones, and new shocks all the way around......

    but the timbrens sure do the job.....the test drive was great, handles well....

    let it snow, let it snow, let it snow....:)

    yes

    500lbs of ballest in the back

    as i said though, with the plow up, before the instillation of the timberns, the plow hung down to about 6 inches off the ground.....thats way too low....in the first pic, imagine how far it sagged when the plow was raised........the timbrens really did the trick....

    Looks much better with the timbrens installed!!!! Are those the new style nite sabres? Those things look like they are 100 times better than the older ones.

    I have a set of Timbrens in my truck and they were well worth the money and time! ! ! !

    I can actually drive on the highway with confidence now with the plow attached. It's great. They are a stellar product.

    I would REALLY recommend them wiht a 1/2 ton truck. My 3/4 squatted a bit with the plow attached.
