    i have an 88 bronco with a 302 v8.i found a 7.5 ft. western power angle plow from an 89 f-150 for 500 bucks.it needs a contol assembly but i was wondering if the mount would hook right up to my bronc.would this plow be too heavy and how much are heavy duty springs?

    It should be the same truck frame. Mount it with new bolts. A standard 7.5 should be fine it's the same suspension as the F-150 with a bit more weight on it (front axle) from more glass and steel in the Bronco. Just put Timbrens on the front bump stops they are about $160-ish.
