Adding a spring to my plow

    I bought a 7.6 poly plow a few years ago that came stock with three springs. After using it , and having it fold over for anything, I decided to add a spring. I called a local welder and he welded a new bracket for the spring, $20 mat. and labor. What a difference, only time it folds is when it should. I think I read where other people were having the same problem, try this, it's a quick easy fix. And yes I did have the proper tension on the three springs.

    i'm not very familiar with boss plows but i added 2 springs to my 8' western (for a total of 5) and replaced the worn out shock with one from a boss plow because it was a lot cheaper. as long as you make sure it still flexes (which you obviousloy have since you said you checked the springs) you'll be fine...

    hey 1 bad bolt, if you go to my profile page i have pictures of my western after the modifications. that should give you an idea. if you don't have that shock i would look into making brackets for that. best of luck to both of youussmileyflag oh if you want better pics just ask ;)

    No I don't have any pictures, but the spring I added is 5 inches from the other center spring. So the way it looks, the springs are all balanced. If you are having trouble with your plow folding over definitly try it.
