    I am going to have my plow installed soon(next week think), and I am wondering how much drop in the front end it too much with the plow in the raised position. I am getting a Western 8' Pro (steel) plow on my GMC Sierra 2500HD. I am just curious as to when I should put timbrens on, i.e. would a one inch drop really benefit from timbrens??

    I had an 8 foot western on my 2500 and it didn't drop that much but I had 500 lbs of sand in the back that didn't cost nearly the price of timbrens do. I put a v plow on the same truck and it doesn't even squat that much. Its not worth the hassle.

    I've ran mine for a season with no Timbren. I decided not to spend the money on the timbrens and just tighten up the torsion bars. It costs me $30 for allignment each time, but I get alot smoother ride in the summer and only have a rough rider in the winter. I wouldn't have to do that if the country roads weren't so bad. And I have a heaver motor.
