Spring tension needs to be higher

    I have a standard 9 ft fisher plow that I installed a JOMA articulating edge on. This edge is amazing, however its heavy. The extra weight is causing the trip edge to trip easier. i have replaced all the springs, which made it a little better. I'm thinking i want to install spacers in the springs to increase tension. I'm a little concerned about bending the upper gussets, but I can weld supports there. Any ideas? Thanks in advance

    Try to get this moved over to the Fisher area, you will get more help there.
