I will add that a little WD40 sprayed on the shock body is the way to go to eliminate the squeak altogether. I also like the ride quality without the plow and the extra ground clearance they provide. It will be interesting this spring or summer when I can get out on some ruff trails to see how ride is at higher speeds.We got dumped on last night so I hooked up the plow today and the above spring spacers made a hug difference, the front end barely squatted at all under the weight of the plow. The only down side is the squeaky noise they make as they rub up & down on the shock body. I have been running around with out the plow since I installed them with no squeaking so I’m guessing it is because everything was wet with snow.
