    my plow seemed to raise higher on my dodge than my chevy 2500hd 01. my plow service shop told me tibrens and a torsion adjustment will help the problem. is this true or is there some thing else i can do.


    thanks for any suggestions Tim C :drinkup:

    Does the trucks front end sagg when the plow is raised? If not then there is no reason to put in Timbrens, try ajusting the chain, or whatever you have to change the height.

    timbrens reply

    I trie postiing yesterday but had trouble. I did adjust chain last season but what seems to happen is when I go over a bump the plow hits. so thats why I was told to go with timbrens and a torsion hight adjustment.

    The blade itself hits, or the mount/ A frame? If it the mount or A frame I'd go with a leveling kit that way you keep the factory ride but raise the front end 2".

    Lift kit or Timbrens???

    Basicly the plow does not raise as it did on my dodge. the dodge was higher off the ground than my chevy 2500hd 01. On the chevy it is raised front end is lower than rear. my qustion is lift kit or leveling kit a better choice than timbrens. Thnks again for feed back. truck goes in friday.

    This is true. I had a 2001 GM HD and now have a 04 and an 05. Timbrens on all. Once I got my 01 I was quite dissapointed in how the plow hung. I shopped all over looking for answers. Turns out a set of Timbrens and a couple turns of the torsion bars solved my problems. Don't even remember what they cost me but just go out and get yourself a set. Easy to install as well. :drinkup:

    what kind of plow? If its a western ultra its possible that the stack stop is still installed on the a-frame and that it may need to be re-configured to the proper setting.
