    I have a 2004 Ford F150 with a 7 1/2 Western Plow. When I raise the plow the front of the truck drops maybe 2 inches nothing to bad. I was thinking of adding timberns or a leveling kit. What do you recommend? Other than that the truck handles the plow like a champ. Can’t hardly tell its on.

    Timberns would be the easy fix. Four bolts or rivets removed and the timberns bolted on your done! Later you might add heavy duty springs and shocks when those parts start getting tired.

    I havd the 71/2 foot blizzard on my 04 f150. I went with the leveling kit and it worked out great. The ride and handeling stayed the same, and my truck rode at its original height with the plow on. Was able to run plow up at full angle on the road without worrying about it catching on big bumps.

    Installation was fairly easy, was able to do it at home, ( recommend using a impact wrench ). Took to garage for front end alignment though.

    I have some pictures of the install if you decide to go that route.

    If you can send some pictures of the install of the leveling kit that would be great. Thanks.
