    Going to need some front end help for the new plow slut and don't wanna spend the big $$ on Timbrens.
    I can't find off-brands that say they will fit. I find them for 1500's, 2500HD's, 3500's, 3500HD's but they don't say 2500ld's.

    Not the LD, the 1500 ones are the correct one for the LD.

    The 2500HD ones are the correct ones, How do i know? I used to own a 2001 2500 NON HD. To avoid confusion at part stores id always get parts for a 2001 2500HD as they share the same parts. Not once did i ever have an issue.

    The front end is the same as the 1500 not the 2500.

    You sure? iirc the unit bearing flange's are different. 3 vs. 4 bolts.

    What about the torsion bars? are they from the 2500hd or 1500 or different?

    1500HD-2500-2500HD-3500 all use the same load boosters whether it's an actual Timbren brand (p/n GMFK25S) or a less expensive knockoff such as Buyers, Sumo etc.

    It's the 1500's that are all their own.

    Fyi I got the buyers knockoffs ordered through my local autovalue for 119+tax. Work great! added 1" lift when unloaded. With gk bars it sets 0.75" lower than stock with timbrens and western cable pump+7.5' straight blade.
