    People have suggested that I put a set of timbrens on my Chevy 1500 with a 7.5 Fisher. I just had them put on and son of a gun what a difference. The thing rides so much better and smoother. If your on the fence, all I can say is I wish I had done it sooner.
    Thanks to those who suggested these

    I couldn't agree more!
    Made a huge difference for us, especially with the proper counter weight (salt bags) in the back.

    3rd that. Made a huge difference on my 96 F250 w/ 8' Fisher MMI. Helps that I have about 800 lbs in the back as well. Alot more stable when turning and rides fairly smooth.

    Only way to go with our 2005 F150 with the 825lb Fisher SS V; my buddy has the exact same set up but has extended cab and he let the dealer talk him into adding the spacer under the factory springs and that works to; but when you take the plow off it is stiff as heck................ Timbrens are the answer on the F150s and a heavy plow. We do have a 100 gal fuel tank in the back of the body with about 700 lbs of fuel for ballast and that works about right with the V...................

    Before if I went over a speed bump any faster than 5mph my plow would scrape the road. Now it does not.
