    I have a 99 Tahoe 4x4 (1500) that I have put a Western Unimount Pro Plow on, and I was wondering, what I could do to beef up the front suspension?

    Turn your torsion bars up and get timbrens. I put them on my 1500 avalanche with a plow and they work great. I love them. :drinkup:

    No need to touch your torsion bars, the timbrens will do the trick by themselves. The change in your torsion bars will also affect the ride, the timbrens wont. The timbrens give you an additional 1400lbs of down pressure capacity. With the plow off you wont notice any ride difference IMO. I have 40,000 miles without timbrens and 29,000 miles with them installed, and IMO I have not noticed any difference in the ride.

    Just my 2 cents........Good luck

    If you touch the torsion bars at all make sure you get an alignment!!

    The higherm you turn the torsion bars, the rougher the ride you will have.:nod:
