    Does anyone else have a problem with springs losing tension and the trip edge getting weak ? I put on 4 new spring assemblies last year and two of the springs have like a 1/4" of play in them... I can push the edge with my foot it's so loose... I 'm pretty sure the springs are aftermarket... It works fine but it's rather annoying.

    how old is your blade? if they're aftermarket springs, are they the correct ones for your plow?

    The blade was an older one. I restored it last year. The springs were correct and were nice and tight when 1st installed. I have a thread one here from last year when I did all the work... search for Custom built plow truck...

    the plates on that hold the top of the springs r most likely bent from wear u need to take the springs out and bend them back and have a welder put gustits on then look at a new xtreme v or an MC fisher they have what i am talking about. my friend who welds did it to one of his plows
