    I have a 2007 chevy 3500 gas, when the plowis installed my ground clearance is down to approx 2-3"( from ground to the uni-mount brakket) the torson bars are cranked up. The dealer says I should put larger tires on the front(no joke) told him that wouldn't work w/4wd. Looking for another way, I'm sure I'm not the first person to have this problem. Any advise would be appreciated. Thanks Toddussmileyflag

    Must be a rather large plow for a 3500 to droop

    Stronger torsion bars
    Air Bags
    Larger Tires (4)
    Lighter plow
    Counter balance in rear

    I swapped in the strongest torsion bars in my Explorer and it solved my droop (mostly)
