    Depends on the plow you have. For the boss's to mount (without putting up a fight) the MAX height your mount can be at is 15.5". Others are more lenient, however with the A frame at more of an angle it will give your blade a steeper attack angle and will trip much easier (if its a full trip vs. trip edge)

    What he said ^ plus It may not sit flat on angle and if it does the edges of the cutting edge will wear very fast. I would put the the lift on and check how the plow sits and go from there. I know with my stock suspension and 33" tires I have the mount as low as it will go and it is right in spec.

    You mean ultra mount right? They dont make unimount plows anymore...
    Id wait to do the lift until this seasons over (we're still due for a few late season snows around here hopefully) and then you'll have much mroe time to modify the mount if the need arises.

    Once the lift is on you will know if you need to drop the bracket

    You will definately want to have the mount lowered. If not plan on replacing wing cutting edges every snowfall, not to mention how much more it will want to trip at that angle. No matter how high the truck, every plow should be level at the a-frame.
