    Why are there two different return spring sizes? I have a few 8'2 and 9'2 steel v's and they all take the smaller spring. I also have an 8'2 poly and that one has the longer spring. Is this because one is poly and the others are steel? The poly is the newer of all of the plows as well. Any input would be appreciated....

    not sure, With the poly it may need less tension to pull them back, so a longer spring won't snap it back as fast.

    Position of the braces???
    I think the poly is actually heavier than the steel blade.

    The newer plows take a longer spring. Look at where the spring attaches to the wing and you'll see the design change.
