    Trying to get help on my front end sag, it's a 2007 chevy 1500 ext cab z71, I have a boss 7.5 super trip edge that goes on it, what can I do to help take the sag out of the front end and not compromise the ride when the plow is off, thanks matt

    Aircells by Air Lift or Timbrens. I just put a set of aircells in my 2500hd. I love them! They cost me $160 shipped. I got them from usautoparts.net and used the coupon code BODYPARTS for 10% off. You could also just crank up your torsion bars but youll have to get an alignment afterwards. Any thing you do to beef up the front end will stiffen the ride a bit. The aircells are easy to install too. You just need a jack and a simple socket set. I very highly recommend them.

    To know if it's a GMT 800 or GMT 900. If you look at my posts with the pretty pictures, it's pretty easy.....

    Take plow off, crank t-bars so the truck is level. When the plow is on put 400-600 of ballast against your tailgate. Should do the trick for you.

    Agree, crank torsion bars up. Make sure you get an alignment afterwards or you will need new tires at the end of the season.

    I'd throw on some Timbrens too. Good price and it will help out a lot and maybe a little more weight in the bed, I'd say more like 800-1000

    don't really want to put in and take out weight in the bed every time I have to plow, PIA, plus I have no where to put weight like that, I think I'll look into the aircells for the front,
