    So I just put a meyer 7'6' plow on my F250, and maybe this is normal but I noticed when traveling down the road the pivot arm that the chain hooks to flex's up and down probably 1/4 to 1/2 inch.... My question is what's designed to flex? Is the movement coming from the truck frame, tube frame or both, and is it normal.... Everything bolts together so tight, I guess I'm just a little suprised it moves at all... I can only see the top three inches of the pivot arm over the hood so I have no idea what's actually flexing

    Look for wore out or egged shaped holes. Another would be air in system making it spongey and bounce . The only other I can think of is the Whole truck is bounceing and not just the plow.

    I was noticing movement between my plow lights and hood the other day, at first I thought my cab mounts and rusted out cab were the problem, but then I noticed that the hood itself moves up and down and it just looked like something worse.
