Two new Front Springs/torsion bars from a 2004 1500 4wd Silverado (with Plow Package Option).
I have listed these as 2005 because they are good as new (and will fit 2005).
Left and Right torsion bars taken off 2004 truck at 2,000 miles.
Will fit 2000-2006 (and maybe earlier years).
Great for Off Road Riding, Lift Kits, Towing, Plowing, and Construction Contractors.
These springs list for over $465.00 new.
$200.00 firm

this is a listing on Craigslist just wanted to know if this seems like a good deal?...and what advantages this would gain me..

Hmm, that might be something to look into, could be a bargain. Does it come with the plow too?

Something doesn't sound right. I don't remember Chevy offering a plow package on half tons. That's not to say they can't plow, I just don't think they recommend plowing with a 1500 unless it's a 1500HD which first appeard in 04 and has the 2500HD suspension. Which I don't think would work in your truck. Check your owners manual (if you have one) and see if it mentions anything about a plow package, specifically for the 1500. I really don't think it was an option. If you're just lookin for a little extra height in the front you can adjust that without replacing the bars.

I just don't trust it. But I did break out my 04 Silverado sales brochure and "Snow Plow Prep Package" is listed as an option. I just have to ask why did he replace them? Maybe he wanted to lower his 4x4 instead of lifting it? Sounds kinda silly to me but I guess "to each his own."
