    Hello, I have a 2004 Chevy K2500,Boss 7.6 Super Duty plow. I have the torsion bars cranked up and I have an extra leaf spring added. I have the extra leaf added, as I have a Perma Green Spreader and bracket that I use in summer. With the weight of the plow the back end sits high. I would like to lower it a bit. Question is, can I add ballast in the bed and how much or would a set of Timbrens on the front or both. I have read here about excess (ballast) weight in the bed causing frame failure. I have operated this way for several years now, But I would like the truck leveled out some Thanks everyone.Jerry.

    Sounds to me like you need a leveling kit.. I have one and it carries the plow well. Or maybe you could look into air shocks. That way you could adjust the height. I am going to look into those for mine. If you have any questions about the leveling kit just ask
