• PlowSite Homepage Upgrade

    Hello again PlowSite community,

    I wanted to post a quick note to let you know that the homepage of PlowSite will experience a major upgrade next week. We’re always looking for ways to improve our users’ experience on the site, and felt that this upgrade was needed and long overdue.

    With this upgrade, you’ll now see the top trending posts as soon as you visit PlowSite, and these will be updated throughout the day. You can also easily access videos and photos. As always, we encourage you to include videos and photos in your own posts to share with your fellow PlowSite users.

    Be assured that all of the forums, content and data that you’ve been accustomed to will remain intact, as will all current site features. You’ll also be able to easily access the full list of forums directly from our new homepage.

    We’re excited to bring you this change, and look forward to hearing your feedback.

    Thanks, PlowSite Team

I was just woundering if there may be something wrong with my truck. It's a 2001 f-350 and when I have a yard of triple mix in the back it drops quite a bit. Also when my 16 ft. trailer is on without a load even it drops also. I thaught the f-350 was supposed to be a tank compared to the 250's. Is this normal?

PCS, I think somebody posted that same problem here before. I'm not sure but I think the problem was the lift-block's on the rear axle, something about them being 2" instead of 4" . To find out for sure go to www.ford-diesel.com . Good luck .

Nothing wrong.

The SD has very LONG springs which flex quite easily even under small loads.

The flex decreases with loading, though and they handle lots of weight with the "butt down" effect.

You can always add more spring, but the 350 Rear Suspension is a softer ride than GM 1T HD or the Dodge.

You don't want it to ride like a 550.
