    I have a 1989 F250 that I've found a plow for.The recomended front axle capacity should be 4600lbs but my truck is rated at 3850lbs.Would Timbrens be the way to go or maybe heavier springs?Any help would be great!Thanks,Richard

    I was looking into getting some beefier springs up front. The main issue you should worry about is the tire ratings though. They will determine the weight carrying abilities of the truck.
    But I would venture that with these springs and "E" rated tires (properly inflated) that you would be able to carry any plow...

    Link to my other post, that contains the link to the bigger springs

    Thanks guys.The truck has E rated tires.Here in NC there aren't too many resources to learn about using a snow plow.The only dealer in town doesn't stock any plows but will order one.As you can imagine they are not alot of help.Richard
