    I just bought a 2000 chevy 3500 has the older 8 ft mm fisher. I will be putting timbrens in the front. How much do the brand new 2500hd's dip when you raise an 8 ft'r? I just need a reference. I have a few other things I would like to add to this truck (like a mini strobe bar, maybe some new brakes) before I order up the Timbrens. The plow still has the original paint, I think he only plowed his drive on his way to church on sunday's. How much front end dive should I expect?

    My 2500HDs drop 1" measuring at the wheelwell centered with the hub. 36.5 to 35.5" no Timbrens yet, 9' Hiniker scoop.
