    My new but not so new truck that I just bought comes with a Fisher plow but it's missing 1 of the 4 trip srings and how much is that going to cost?

    depends if you buy from your fisher or dealer or, an aftermarkert parts co. Either way you need the spring.

    Tim,in the arm that runs from the cutting edge, there should be a hole,if the hole is worn from scraping the pavement you will have to replace the whole bass angle of the plow and make shore that when the plow is on the truck that the other arms ar not hitting the ground or you will lose all the springs.Fisher I think makes a tool for the job that helps putting the spring on. It's been about ten year since I did one so thats about all I can tell about putting one on.

    You will need the spring plus the shaft that goes in the center of the spring. If that lower bracket is ground off, go to a fabricator and have that piece replaced, much cheaper than a new base angle. Any coil spring compressor should work, but I have used a floor jack in a pinch.
    the two pieces should be able to be had for less than 75.00

    If you do the fabricator route, whitch is all so a good way to go. You will need a new cutting edge to get the arms off the ground.

    We sell the complete "N/S" trip spring assembly sells for $32.50 - the tool to release the spring is $19.96 - P/N: 20043.

    Your local Fisher Dealer may be slightly higher - at any rate you do need the spring so I wouldn't hesitate getting it put on asap. Should you have to plow any more - you could do more damage.
