    so before i go back to school i wanted to get my truck 100% ready for the winter, so when the snow comes i wont be scrambling to get it ready.

    so far i have replaced both my CV boots because they were blown so thats out of the way.

    next i belive my truck needs new torsion bars. its a 97 s10 with a 6.5 ft meyers steel plow. ive been plowing with this truck for 3 years now and the bars are cranked all the way up and it looks like its riding at stock height. now what im wondering is should i get new keys as well for a little extra lift or not bother??

    also i was thinking about getting timbrens and putting those in. do u guys feel it is worth the 200 dollars for bump stops pretty much?

    and finally i need new tires!! cause these goodyear duratracs suck!!
    how do you guys feel about general grabbers? pretty cheap and ive heard they last a while, and do look a little aggressive

    If your t-bars are holding up your truck, I wouldn't spend the money on new ones. Unless you need it higher.

    thats the plan i need the front end higher, right now with the bars cranked to the max its at stock height and when i put the plow up its really low. so im pretty sure the bars are shot being as they are only on an s10 with 4 years of heavy plowing and 150k miles.

    Do you have a good amount of ballast behind your rear axle?
