    I have a 2007 Chevy 3500 dump its a 4x2 dually, I put a 9 1/2 V plow Western I got 2 skids of salt on back for weight and it works great didnt get stuck yet and already plowed 6 ' of snow, but one main problem I have is the frame of the plow is really low and it hits the gound alot when I drive.... Is there heavy duty springs or shocks or something I can do to lift up the front end so I dont have this problem, please help out ASAP thank you....... email me at lamservicesinc@yahoo.com

    6' of snow???
    Heavy duty springs might help but a 4X4 would be alot better.

    Sorry I mean 6" inches of snow at one time lol

    Do you know of any good heavy duty springs? And you think this will help the issue and keep the truck up more.....

    Find a spring rebuilder (Yellow pages : Spring rebuilders, generally under automotive) in your area- they can offer the best suggestions for increasing the carrying capacity of the front end.

    A friend of mine has the same truck except his is 4x4. Hey had a set of beefed up springs installed and put a set of Timbrens on. It helped but he still has a low-clearance.

    Just turn up your torsion bars up a few cranks and add timbrens. $150 bucks and 30 minutes and you're golden!
