    Torsion bars on my truck # 15528966. Did not come with plow prep 02 D/A EC Short bed. The door sticker says 4640 FAWR but I think the bars are for 4800 front end. Can anyone tell me if existing bars will work with 8' fisher or should I get heavier rated bars?:help:

    1. Stick the plow on there with the correct amount of ballast
    2. If the nose still drops hard stick some more ballast back there up to 1000# and throw some timbrens up front.
    3. if after all that it still drops hard(I dobt yo will even make it to #2) buy new bars.

    Timbrens are a good idea to have anywho in most cases IMO. But you can get by without em most times.
