    I bought some fronts and rears for my truck. Haven't installed them yet though. Not really motivated with this warm weather... May have a record high this Saturday per the weatherman... :cool:

    Mine has the 460 in it as well. With this 7.5' plow it squats a little, but not too bad. I bought the front ones just for the hell of it I guess...

    The back is another story. I have a 2 cubic yard spreader, and it seems the salt they always loaded on me last winter was wet. So after one scoop my truck was squating hard. I'm not that worried about breaking the truck, but when it squats like that, my headlights point to the sky. Then they gradually come back down as the spreader empties. So that's probably my main reason for the rears, to keep my headlights on the road.
