    I have a 7.5 super trip edge on my 06 1500 silverado. Is there any way I can have the brackets that hold my plow in place raised up from a dealer? I'm trying to get more height on my plow between the blade and the street. Thanks matt

    Push beam needs to be a specific height from the ground no matter what. Without looking it up, it's around about 16". Too high or too low and attack angle of the blade will be wrong which will cause poor performance and accelerated wear. If you're saying the blade is too low when raised, then you either have a blade lift problem or your truck can't handle the weight.
    Are you running any counterweight?

    no counterweight, I did add new bilstein 5100 shocks last year with a torsion bar kit also, which helped a little I think.

    Shocks don't hold weight.
