3500hd too low?

    I have a 95 3c3500hd with a 9' meyers poly. Problem is the mount on this thing is way low and when I hook up the plow in the middle hole, the a frame is only 2" off the ground. When you raise the plow the stops hit the lift cage and the edge is only up an inch to 2" making driving around a little tough. Is this a commonproblem on this truck, in that there's no clearance? Would putting bags in the springs actually boost me up 3-4" or not? It doesn't squat a great deal at lift, its just that there's no lift to get. Any ideas?

    Sounds like you dont have a plow package on that truck. Did you add the plow after you got it?. The springs are 10 years old and most likely worn. They either need to be replaced with a heavy duty set or Timkens/Airbags added. I would do both replace the springs and add Timkens/Airbags
