    When I go to put the wings back in the V position, they come back extremely fast and hard and rattles my whole truck. Any quick way to fix that so they don't slam back so fast/hard?

    sounds like your returns springs are tooo tight.. would be my first and main guess since the return isnt hydro there spring return.. hydro out.. spring return.. id check to see how tight the springs are..and loosen them accordingly till i found the sweet spot i was happy with.

    i bought my plow very cheap because of that very same thing. well actually the opposite but whos keeping score. the guy told me the wings wernt working right, one is slow and the other doesnt work at all! i told him id give him a couple hundred for the "junk plow" and a couple hundred for the truck haha. needless to say he accepted and even delivered it for me(i gave him an extra $50 to be fair). after it got dropped off i hooked everything up to the plow and noticed one of the springs wasnt hooked up which solves the one wing not working problem:dizzy: and the other spring just needed to be tightened up LOL

    your springs too tight just loosen it up

    :rolleyes:Your proudly right:nod:

    I tighten mine until the spring just starts to expand a little.
    About 3 businesses cards worth of a gap between coils

    A lot of folks are not ready for the speed of a Boss.
    They think it should feel like shutting a door when a couple of hundred pounds of plow comes to a stop.;)

    When you have been out plowing for a while you will like the speed and you will barley notice it hitting so hard.

    If the spring adjustment doesn't slow it down to you liking, you can get an orifice disc for inside the wing hose ports to slow them down..

    You'll need one for each wing.
