    I have a 97 Chevy 3500 dump truck. It has a snow plow prep package on it but with my Western 8ft uni mount the front end sags big time when I raise the plow. Is there anything I can do to keep it from sagging? Some sort of airbags perhaps? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    yes a little, but i dont wanna go anymore because then the front sits too high without the plow and looks stupid. I have heard and Timbrens but dont know if thats what I should do.

    ditto, I just put a MM on my '03 1500. I put Timbrens on before I bought it and the front end stay right up when I lift the plow.

    I'm seen other Chevy 1500's really sag in the front with the plow lifted..... but not mine :D

    Any autoparts store can probably get them.

    I found a guy on Ebay from MA. He had the best price shipped for both the front and back.

    I'll try to find his info. I just called him and ordered over the phone.
