    I recently installed a DX18 snoway on my 89 S10 blazer. I have notice that lately the bottom of the mount scraps the ground when pulling out of certain driveways. Will placing new shocks up front alleviate this or will I need an alternative solution? Thank You for any help!

    Shocks might help as could a set of timbrens. Though on certain drives everything scrapes

    Bashers right with the timbrens, I have a set on my 86 s10 blazer with a MT 7.5 and it doesnt sag barely at all, unlike other s10 with smaller plows.

    The timbrens are the "right" way to fix it. In the mean time - you could crank up the torsion bars a bit. it WILL throw off the alignment when the plow is off, however....

    The torsion bar adjustments are the bolts basically under the front seats on each side - follow the bar back from the bottom of the control arm - and you should see them.

    Jack up the suspension to take the weight off - make 1 turn of each bolt, put the vehicle back down and check ride height. Make small adjustments. When you drop the vehicle down to check alignment - you may have to lean on each fender to compress the suspension.

    Thank for the quick response. I will see what it will run me to have it installed.
