    I know these bumpers are heavy...350lbs front...and was wandering if the ride of my 84 would get
    worse with the extra weght? and could this effect tire wear in a negative way....

    FIRST OF ALL IT WILL MAKE YOUR VEHICLE SIT ASS END HIGH. THE WEIGHT WILL ALSO PUT MORE STRESS ON YOUR SHOCKS AND LEAF SPRINGS. YOU MAY WANT TO UPGRADE TO A HEAVY DUTY SHOCKS OR EVEN A DUAL SHOCK SETUP AT BOTH WHEELS. ALSO, IF IT IS IN YOUR BUDGET YOU MAY WANT STIFFER LEAF SPRINGS, BUT THIS DEPENDS ON HOW OLD YOUR SUSPENSION IS AND THE RELATED COMPONENTS.
