    Ho do I know if i need timbrens? Is it as simple just to see what my clearance is when the plow is raised? Also what is the worst that can happen if I dont put them on? I really dont want to hurt anything since everything is new but I am also not going to be plowing commercially.
    Thanks for your replies.

    What kind of truck, plow, front springs? You didn't give us a lot to work with.

    Hi Plowman...
    Does your dakota have the timbrens on it and stock springs?

    Here is a pic of my truck with Timbrens, you'll notice very little sag when plow is up. I highly recommend these.
