    I have a 1993 k1500. Looking for recommendations on wheel bearings, torsion bars and etc to help beef up the front end for plowing.

    Thank you

    Try to get this moved to the Chevy truck forum, you will get more results.

    Morning. Honestly, the K series trucks dont have a ton of "upgrades" nor do they need them if you're using the truck for light-medium duty as intended. Just use the premium replacement parts (MOOG/Timkin/Spicer) for replacing stuff as it fails. Inspect it weekly or biweekly or monthly at a qualified suspension shop to head off any issues beforehand (depending on your use) Your truck's very very simple to work on, parts are inexpensive, and anyone and their brother has the tools and experience to keep the truck running. Rust and corrosion combined with abuse can obviously factor into excessive repair labor times beyond "book" time but that's to be expected.
