    my 1500 has a 2 inch level but when the HTS plow was up it would sag about 2.5-3 inches.

    the new 3500 front end is about the same height as the 1500 was stock. so if the front drop more than an inch or so when the plow is up i will have a scraping issue in my driveway.
     
  2. Crank up your torsion bars and your problem will be solved.

    funny, i looked into that already. i want to try and avoid it but will do it if needed. so i really have no issues. honestly i do not expect the 6k lb front end to have that much of an issue.

    As far as I know, that's why the torsion bars are adjustable so you shouldn't hesitate to adjust them.

    I have a 9'6" mvp 3 installed on one and tape measure showed 1/4" drop with plow in up position. Thats about an 1100lbs plow.
