    Hi everyone.

    I have a chevy 2500 diesel 4x4
    The plow is a 7600 LT blizzard (7.5 feet)

    I just had a set of timbrens put on 7 the truck still sags when I raise the plow. Is this normal ? Its the forst time I put them on a truck.

    Thanks,

    It will settle a little with the timbrens. Make sure you have the correct ones for your truck. I made that goof once. I have them on my ford but don't need them on my chevy. Are your torsion bars cranked up? Also you might need some ballast in the back.

    Yup, 4 or 5 hundred pounds to help level the truck.

    Being a diesel motor...for obvious reasons your t-bars need cranked up. That with timbrens and ballast weight you should have no problems...Helps with bigger tire size too which gives you more ground clearance.
