    Anyone have experience with installing Timbrens up front and needing more or less rear ballast?

    My feeling is that you will need ballast whether you have Timbrens or not.Got 600# in mine with Timbrens and noticed slight improvement in front end drop with plow raised then before without ballast.The ride is better and the whole package,plow on,with ballast,just seems to feel better going down the road.

    Eyesell,

    Yes, I am in Michigan. I am in Walker, which is just West of Grand Rapids if you're not familiar. Where are you?
