    I searched around and couldn't find the answer... If i swap out the front springs in my 05 f350 for the 6000lbs will i need to adjust the mount height on my plow? Thanks. If it will be too much of a PITA I can always just toss a set of timbrens on.

    Did you search " Plowing with a lifted truck" ? etc. It has been discussed in the past. Might try asking in the forum that pertains to your plow manufacturer, listed above the truck forums..

    If you are getting the OEM springs, I don't believe it will change the ride height very much(probably < 1") but the stiffer springs will be better with the plow. Also, I see in your signature that you are using a Boss. Is that the RT3 mount on your truck? Most I have seen(and my mount) have 8 bolts that can be adjusted for the height of the truck relatively easily.
