My truck front end doesn't drop to bad but a dont want to do damage in the long run. I dont travel with the plow any distance maybe 10 miles at most any input or advice welcome.

    Try timbrens. Order off eBay, or wherever.

    I second this advice. I am ordering a set for my 09 Silverado 1500. Every plow guy I have spoke to in my area has suggested them.
    They must have a MAP set on them. All prices seem to be $195 a set. I cant find a deal no where.

    I was in the same situation as you were because we have similar trucks. I decided to go with a ballast of 300lbs (sand) and a leveling kit. I'm very pleased with the results and the look. All said and done I came under the cost of the Timbrens. Here is a link to some pictures:

    Timbrens all the way. I have a 2002 Chevy 2500 duramax and a 8' fisher plow and it rides down the highway no problem and front end stays up just fine
