If your new @ plowing get a set

  1. If you dont want to hammer your front suspension you got to buy a set of Timbrens. Being a newbie, I was worried that the weight of the plow would beat the piss out of my truck. It's a 1/2 ton with 2 leaf springs. Front end sagged about 3 inches went raised. Got myself a set of Timbrens and now it drops about a 1/2 inch. Also doesn't ride to bad. Worth the $150.

    89 & newer k5 blazers use a lightweight suspension so timbrens are a cost effective solution. On my 88's the front end went down approximately 1/2 inch when I put on my 7.5 western unimount pro . My neighbor has an 90 and his sags a lot more.I really like plowing with my k5.
