    At the end of last plow season I put heavier springs on the front of my 2001 Ram 1500 that raised the front of the truck 2 inches. This year when I plow and angle the plow extreme left or right the far edge raises up a couple of inches. This keeps me from getting a clean cut on the surface. If I ease the plow back a little it will drop the edge. I have checked for binding and a bent A-frame and everything appears to be fine. Any ideas what could be causing this?

    Raising the front of your truck 2 inches. By doing that, you end up raising the back of the a frame so that now the a frame is no longer parallel to the ground.

    Does anyone make extensions for the mount? If not I guess I will get fabricating. Thanks for your help.

    Depending on your setup (headgear mounted to truck or plow?) it might be a lot easier to modify the a frame with extended supports. That would keep your ground clearance maximized in the summer. It really depends on what setup you have whether that would be possible.
