    I would like to get some feedback from people who actually have either owned a similiar truck or who still own a similiar truck. Last year I decided not to retire this old BEAST and to put a Western Pro Plow on her. It has the double shocks up front with leaf springs. When I am driving and hit a bump the front seems to want to kinda drift alittle due to the extra weight of the plow. I made a containment box and placed around 350/400 lbs over the rear area, helps but not the trick,,, What would be my best solution to make the suspension tighter, :cool:

    Probably the cheapest and simplest is a basic Add-A-Leaf kit for the front, but be advised that it will ride stiffer too--not a problem if it is basically a work truck now. 'Burbans are sprung a little soft for comfort... The dual shocks (optional) are more of a stability helper, not a weight booster. Keep the tire pressure up too, less slop in the sidewalls then... Speaking of which, check that the tires are LT's and not P's...
