I have a western HTS that I purchased for my 06 scab. The engine blew after only having it a year. Was not about to take a loss on it so I installed on my screw. I did not know all I know now about the screw but again I am not taking a loss on this investment.

So I don't need the leveling kit or is that what the timbrens are?

I bought my 97 Scab new in 99 I put a 7.5 ft. 700 lb. fisher standard duty plow on it plowed 12 yrs. with it only parts that had to be replaced were 2 tie rod ends at around 70,000 miles. I had NYS inspection done just before I sold it front end was all good. I guess I must be lucky never had any problems with mine. I used a needle tip on my grease gun and poked a small hole and greased all the sealed for life front end parts. I do the same with my 08 also.

You are one of the few who actually grease non greaseable parts. I do it too but im ****. Most people i know who plow take there trucks to quick oil change places. And thats the first no no. And you had a super cab. Those are better than the super crews. Not sure why but thats what ford says.
