F-350 Suspension ? Plow prep?

    Bought my 04 F-350 new in Jan 05 at the time I was told I have the Plow prep Package. Window sticker states snow package for $70.00 my front is rated at 5200 GVW. Got the Timbrens for a F-350 with plow prep and they don't fit. They will go in but the timbren will be on the axel all the time with plow off.
    I went to the dealership where I bought it and they said I have the plow prep and that 5200 GVW for fronts is fine to handle the Fisher 8'6 V which I had installed and said it won't void my warranty.

    My question because I don't believe the clowns at the dealership because they will say anything is what's the deal? Do I have the set-up or was I bent over?

    I would think somewhere is a list of option codes, like in the glove box or something. I am not sure whats what but it will be on that list if you can find out what the plow option code is and just look at your tag.
    Not much help I guess

    Snowplow prep package or not, you have plenty of truck for that plow. I'm pretty sure it's normal for the timbrens to always be contacting the axle, but with your truck, you proboly don't even need them.

    My Timbrens were the same way. You could always put 6000# springs on if you really wanted to as well.
