BOSS Plow Not Sitting Level - Any Idea's Why??

    Attached is a photo of what I am talking about. It did not start the season this way. But, even as it sits off the truck its not sitting on the ground level. Do you see how the light tower is leaning to the right, and the left mounting hole is higher then the right. When its on the truck the drivers side of the plow hangs down lower then the passager side. The drivers side of the plow is actually almost touching the ground when its mounted.

    It seems to plow ok still, but when putting it down, the drivers side hits the ground first. Also, when going over bumps on the road while driving because its not straight, it bounces around back and forth, it just looks like its really hard on it.

    Does anyone know how I can fix this?!?? Thanks in advance!

    I am thinking the collar on the A frame where is connects to the center section is broken somehow. I would pull the A frame and inspect it closely.

    i've seen a few bent a-frames...i'd take some time and inspect everything close. i'm going to guess the large pin that holds the a-frame into the center section or the a-frame itself.

    The A-frame is the piece the lift cylinder connects to between the head gear and the big red center section. Its a big black piece in the shape of a A. You'll need to take the head gear off the plow, and disconnect the A-frame from the big red center section. Basically the whole plow has to get taken apart. I have take 1 apart, put a new A-frame back on and had the plow back together and operational in less than 2 hours.
