Should I have air shocks or anything on my truck for plowing?

    Hey guys i was just on the curtis website looking to order some touch up paint so then after that i started looking at the plows in the manuals they have online under the caution box and it said .....
    " is highly recommended that front "helper springs", "airshocks", or other similar devices be installed onto this vehicle to prevent the front suspension from "bottoming out" while carrying a snow plow."

    I never put anything but 600 pounds of ballast behind the rear wheels and truck always ran fine and did a great job.... Do i need any of that stuff?
    And truck always looked leveled. :nod:

    On some trucks like light duty half tons or small pickups(Ranger Dakota)should be installed to help hold the plow.
