Honestly, poor plow frame design is to blame. Look at how the plow frame bolts on and the leverage it creates on the front frame section. If the plow frame had a brace to a spot on the frame further back it would be no issue. I have yet to see one in person, but it does happen.
The 1st GM IFS trucks with the fisher plows had a nice set up to prevent this.

I had an F-250 with TTB front suspension that had a brace way back on the frame.

GM does have the weaker of the frames out of the big 3, it was in TT magazine awhile back, but anyways, the fisher set-ups are the onyl way to go, don't use a POS blizzard or boss or western, JUNK.

04 Silverado 2500HD LB7/Allison, EFI live by duramaxtuner.com with DSP5, 4" MBRP turbo back straight pipe, polished 5" tip, 5% tint, riding on 285 fierce attitudes, many more mods....

Your right, I hate being able to plow more snow in less time. I have the 810 and 8611 and can't complain about them at all.
