An example of sag on a truck's rear axle under a heavy load. The Timbren Suspension Enhancement System levels the Chrysler Town and Country.

When hauling heavy loads in the cargo area or by pulling a trailer, you will often see the rear of the Chrysler Town and Country sag while the front end rises. In these cases, the rear axle is handling not only the weight of the cargo, but more of the Chrysler Town and Country's weight as well. Because less weight is on the front axle, the front tires are making less contact with the road. Overall Chrysler Town and Country handling - traction, steering, and braking - is negatively affected. The resistance from Timbren's Suspension Enhancement System works with the Chrysler Town and Country's factory suspension to keep the Chrysler Town and Country level and improve your driving performance.

Diagram of the Timbren spring installed

The Timbren system has a Chrysler Town and Country-specific bracket that will be bolted onto each frame rail above the rear axle. Hollow rubber springs are bolted to the bottom of the bracket and hang down to where the bottom of the spring sits one inch above the axle. The inch of clearance allows the existing factory suspension to operate normally under light loads and standard terrain, ensuring the smooth, comfortable ride you are used to.

Animation of a standard Timbren rubber spring

Timbren Suspension Enhancement Systems are designed to work progressively. When the hollow rubber springs are compressed, the convoluted design causes them to quickly collapse along the folds. Once the folds are compacted, the stacked barrel shape provides increased resistance, stiffening the suspension and keeping the Chrysler Town and Country level.

Timbren suspension system works to prevent body roll

Each hollow rubber spring works independently to support the driver's or passenger's side of the Chrysler Town and Country. This is helpful when you swerve or make sharp turns. Each spring is activated when it is needed, so body roll is greatly reduced. The independent action also works well when hauling off-center loads.

An example of a trailers swaying

Because the Chrysler Town and Country handles better with the springs, less turbulence will be passed along to the trailer helping to keep the trailer in line. Your driving comfort is further enhanced if the trailer does begin to sway (from a gust of wind or passing of a semi) because the movement from the trailer is not transferred to the Chrysler Town and Country. This also works to make the sway subside quicker.

An empty truck on a bumpy road without Timbren

Another great feature of the rubber construction is that the springs absorb most of the road shock, creating a smoother, more stable ride overall. Wear and tear on the factory suspension is also lessened as the rubber springs work to prevent bottoming out on rough roads.

Compared to the competition:

Timbren's suspension enhancement systems are much easier to install than air springs - no air hoses are needed to be run, no compressors or gauges to hook up, and no manual adjustments necessary. The rubber construction causes Timbren's springs to be more elastic than similar products constructed of micro-cellular urethane. More elasticity allows for a more comfortable ride because the rubber has more travel.

Video Transcript for Timbren Vehicle Suspension TDVR05096 Review

Today we're going to be reviewing part number TDVR05096. This is the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System. To see if this is going to fit your particular year, make and model you can refer to the vehicle list at the bottom of the product page. This system is designed to improve suspension, handling and safety. It's going to provide additional support as needed so youll always have a nice smooth, comfortable ride. It's going to allow the least inaudible 00:00:24 plenty of movement while cushioning light loads and it will not affect the empty ride of the vehicle. The system is designed to become more rigid as more weight is added so it's going to increase stability, which is going to provide better performance while hauling heavy loads. It's also designed to help reduce vehicle sag.

It will work independently side-to-side so it's going to help compensate for off-center loads. It's also designed to reduce body roll when swerving and turning corners. The suspension enhancement system is going to act as a shock absorber which is going to take the impact of bumps and rough roads which overall and ultimately is going to extend the life of your vehicle's suspension system. It's going to come with the two hollow rubber springs, the vehicle specific brackets and the hardware that's needed for a nice, simple installation. It will install directly onto the frame. It's going to offer a capacity of 2000 pounds.

You need to be careful not to exceed the vehicle's weight carrying capacity and keep in mind that this is designed to work with a suspension system that's in good working order. You're going to see here that you're going to get four bolts as well as four lock washers. You'll only use two of those for a complete install so you'll need to refer to the manufacturer's instructions and determine based off of your year, make and model which set of bolts and lockers that you need to use. It's a really simple installation. One of the bolts is going to feed through the larger hole. There's actually a flat washer located on the inside there so you want to make sure the bolt goes through that flat washer. It's going to come up through this hole, this portion is going to go over top of that bolt.

Once you have that all the way through there, then you'll be able to mount it directly onto the frame of your vehicle. You want to be sure that you include one of the lock washers on each bolt before installation. Again, it's very important that it goes through the center of that washer located on the inside of the hollow rubber spring. This spring is going to give us an overall length or height of about 4 3/4 of an inch. That's going to do it for today's review of part number TDVR05096. This is the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System. .

Best available for Kia I wish I would have known about this product sooner. I have a Kia Sedona and there are only 2 suspension aids available. I previously had the Firestone airbags and don't recommend. The bags and compression fittings leak and installations complicated. This was the only other option so I gave it a try. Very glad I did. They do exactly what they say they do. The Sedona doesn't dip nearly as much when I put the trailer on. In fact I had to go to my lower rise hitch so it would sit flat. Ride is solid, but not jarring. I don't really know about the reliability as I've only had them about a week, but it's a very simple concept so I can't imagine problems. They are basically oversized flexible bump stops and have no moving pieces. They seem expensive for what they are, BUT installation is MUCH cheaper than the airbags. It cost me just a bit over a hundred bucks to have them installed at a local service chain (Tuffy). They also are very discrete so your warranty likely won't be called into question. 3579

A follow up - I've had these installed for nearly 2 yrs towing a trailer every week, sometimes over several hundred miles with 5 people in the van. They've been great. I've not even thought about them, which is a good thing. The ride may be a bit more firm, but I actually prefer it. 45041

Install proved too much for this "shade-tree mechanic." Not too technical, but messing with the coil springs was beyond me. Thankfully the local muffler and brake shop was willing and able to do the job for just under $150. Unloaded is still the same ride. I'll update this review after a 3000 mile trip in a month. ALWAYS happy with etrailer! 146872

Review from a similar Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System

Hello Patrick....I have attached the Timbren product to my 2012 Dodge Ram and am very impressed with the product. E-Trailer answered my question that I needed to know if the Timbren product would take the squat out of my truck when I hook up my 5th wheel rv. The proof is in the attached pictures I took to share with you and potential customers. Your customer service & product knowledge is outstanding and that is why I am a faithful customer. As far as the installation of the product, I could not find an easier thing to do....It's harder to change a light bulb! Of course your installation video was very informative which made things a lot easier. 79715


Helped make my decision a no brainer....thanks for the pics they sealed the deal.

Fantastic....The truck drives like a dream! If and when I hit any potholes or bumps, of course you still feel them, but the control is there with no fish tailing. As far as pulling my 5th wheel, it feels like everything is one unit and floats right along!

Review from a similar Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System

i recently added a power lift to my 2002 mazda mpv to carry my husbands new power chair. i needed these to prevent the sagging that occurred when just the class III hitch was installed. we loaded the chair on the lift once and i knew we could not leave the sagging that way. i did not want the maintenance of air shocks, air bags or air springs so i ordered these and am very happy i did. it keeps everything level with the full load on the rear and does not affect the ride when loaded or empty (with just the hitch). i would recommend these if you just put people in the back of any van. Installation was very simple. jacked up van with floor jack i have with tire 1" off ground. i am not sure if my stock bumpers fell off or were stolen in the past but they were not there. i took off the one bolt (14mm), assembled the timbren ses with supplied long bolt (17mm) and left stock bumper mount on top (same orientation), used a deep socket (17mm) stuffed with a paper towel and short 3/8" extension and started the bolt by hand. then placed the 3/8" ratchet on and tightened it up. NOTE: I visited the hardware store before I started, with the assembled timbrens in hand. I bought two 7/16" washers and two 7/16" split lock-washers because it looked like the bolts would bottom out on the un-threaded portion before fully tightening them up. Sure enough, on the passenger side i had to add a 7/16" lock-washer to get it to snug up. There was alot of slack/play after the threads bottomed out on the un-threaded part of the bolt shaft. On the drivers side it did not need a lock-washer added. it tightend up without any play. I will check them periodically to see if they are coming loose. if so, I will place the lock-washer and the other flat washer I bought on both bolts, then assemble the rest and tighten up again with thread locker on the threads. The install went so fast if I had to take them down to add anything it would only be a few minutes for both sides. Nice stiff, controlled cornering without the roll. wish I added these years ago to make my minivan with the heart of a sports car even sportier. Thanks e-trailer, Carol S 162579

Review from a similar Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System

The order and shipping process was flawless -- the Timbrens arrived exactly when E-trailer said they would. An hour after they got here, I had them completely installed. As of this date (7/30/13), the posted instructions (and the ones that came with the Timbrens) are not quite correct for a new Tacoma, as I verified with a Timbren tech. (These are Tacoma-specific issues -- they may not apply to other trucks.) Do not jack the truck up. I ran the back tires up onto blocks (to give myself more room underneath) and set the parking brake. I put a jack stand under the differential -- probably not needed. I crawled under and did one side at a time -- loosen the u-bolts, remove the old bump stop, stick in the new Timbren, and tighten. Not technically demanding at all. My crawler dolly was very helpful. Some tips: use a 9/16 socket with an extension to put the nut onto the bolt inside the Timbren rubber spring and then tighten the bolt with an Allen wrench. When loosening the Tacoma's u-bolts, use a 3/4 socket. Depending on the clearance between the leaf springs and the frame, you may need to remove one side of the u-bolt assembly to install the Timbren because the angle of the baseplate is greater than the angle of the OEM bump stop. I was told that the u-bolt nuts on a Tacoma should be re-tightened with a torque wrench to about 70 foot/pounds. I found it a little tiring to lay on my back and torque the nuts, but then again I am verging on elderly. A young person in decent shape should have no trouble. I don't know yet if the Timbrens will help my saggy rear end when I am towing a trailer, but others have said that this will be very helpful. This is my second major purchase from E-trailer -- I am impressed with their selection, service, and pricing. 92404

Review from a similar Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System

Having purchased a cargo trailer, I thought it might be wise to beef-up the rear suspension on my 2000 Tacoma. I found the Timbrens on etrailer, and it sounded like they might work well, so I purchased a set and installed them. According to the instructions, there should be about a 1/2" gap between the top of the springs, and contact with the bottom of the Timbren - unless you have a CAP on the truck! The gap pretty much evaporated because of the fiberglass Leer cap. So, I'm getting contact a lot of the time. Result is, my ride has become stiffer than I'm used to, but not so much that it bothers me. Like my wife said, " It's a truck! Hello!!" (OK, I'm satisfied with the product.) 110248


Keep in mind that the gap Timbren refers will diminish as the springs wear. Since the truck is a 2000, it probably has some miles on it and if it has hauled heavy loads in the bed or has pulled a trailer, then the leaf springs may just be worn.

Patrick B - 12/18/2013


A year later and 5,304 miles pulling the trailer, I think the Timbrens are a good investment. With a typical pull of 2,555 lbs of trailer and load, and approximately 300 lbs of tongue weight, Im finding the truck actually rides better than it does with no load. And, theres no maintenance whatsoever!

Review from a similar Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System

This Timbren SES kit is quite complete and seems like a great way to help the old springs in my '95 Dakota. My research shows the theory is correct anyway. I just finished the install and will have to give it a real test in a few days. I didn't even have to raise my truck as recommended in the instructions and was able to do it all laying in my driveway on my back. The install took much longer on the first unit as I could not get them to properly tighten up to the frame. Not being able to see directly what the issue was, it took me a little while to discover the Grade 5 bolts supplied were about 5/16" too long for my application. Fortunately I have a lathe and was able to machine them down rather than going to a big box store to buy replacement hardware, most likely of suspect quality. Someone else may not be so fortunate. The unthreaded shank portion of the stock bolts still needed two washers to be able to adequately tighten them through the frame and beefy plates on the SES. Once I got all of the bolts shortened and determined the correct amount of additional spacer washers needed (2), they went right together. I spent over an hour on the first side, but the second side was done in 15 minutes, as I expected. Perhaps my situation was unusual and I was accidentally supplied the wrong hardware. If the 1-1/2" long bolts are standard for this kit, the Dakota frames are too thin (about 1/8" or so) to to use this long of a bolt. A 1" bolt would be more appropriate for this application. 81456

Review from a similar Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System

2010 Nissan Frontier with Timbren suspension components. Trailer is a Jayco X17Z with close to 450lbs of tongue weight. Pictures are a before and after view of the rear suspension droop. 52393


Since the Timbren install we have towed the camper on back roads with stop and go traffic as well as on the highway at 65 mph. The Pro4X does ride level and handles the added weight well. I wish I had a longer wheel base and a tandem axle trailer as on occasion we develop a slight up and down oscillation until the suspension settles down. It is noticeable when driving over long bridges. This is mainly due to the truck setup and not the Timbrens. We had this problem before the install and the Timbrens are making a difference.I have also hauled an estimated 780 lbs of hardwood flooring in the bed at 65mph and the truck handled it with no problem. It remained level and stable.

comment by: Rick S - 01/29/2013


You might be able to adjust the tongue weight of the trailer and get that oscillation to settle. You want your tongue weight to be about 10-15% of the trailer total weight. Also if the trailer does not ride level, looking into getting a different drop length ball mount that will get the trailer level or even slightly nose down.

I read the recommendation to another buyer and decided to try this product on my 2012 Ford F250 Superduty. I needed help for my 25' goose neck trailer. EASY to install. Worked perfectly with 15K of hay + 6K of trailer weight. The rear of the truck barely set down on the factory overload springs. Empty ride does not seem to be affected as the Timbren pads do not contact the overload stops. Thanks for a perfect solution without great cost and installation hassle! 62416

Review from a similar Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System

I was pleasantly surprised to find the installation procedure to be even simpler than the instructions sent with the "Timbrens". So easy even a cave man could do it. Same with the mirror extensions, very simple to install. I can't provide useful feedback (or a meaningful rating) regarding how well these products work. I haven't had a chance to use either the timbren system or the mirrors. My first trip with the trailer will be late September. I'll let you know when I get back....thanks. Dave G 99667


Unfortunately, I ended up returning the timbrens and replaced them with the Firestone Air Shocks. The Timbrens worked fine when hauling the trailer. However, without a load on the truck, the timbrens prevented the shock absorbers from engaging when needed and the resulting ride was very uncomfortable. The air shocks are the way to go if you only need the extra suspension on occasion. Thanks. dg

Review from a similar Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System

Received the product promptly arriving yesterday. Was a little hesitant to take off the u-bolts on the axle but they came off with no problem and went back on easily. It made installation easier by removing the wheel on each side as I was installing them. The Tacoma will now hold a good load without the sag. Have had previous experience with this product with very good results. The truck now has no dip or sway when driving on rough road. Very good product for a firm and stable ride. 105069


The product is still working very well. The Timbrens give a very stiff ride when the bed is not loaded, actually a rough ride. When the bed is loaded or pulling a trailer is where the value is most notable. On the Tacoma, the frame rests on the Timbrens even before a load is applied. I dont mind the rough ride so they have worked out very well for me.

Review from a similar Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System

These are the second set of Timbren SES I have purchased, the first being for a 2006 Nissan Titan and these for a 2013 Dodge Ram. Both were purchased in order to pull a fifth wheel camper and minimize the "squatting " issue. I am very pleased with the result. Installation on the Dodge was literally a 5 minute breeze as there are no nuts and bolts to remove. Just popped out the old ones and pushed these into place. Lowering the fifth wheel onto the bed secured them into place. The ride is impacted slightly when not pulling the camper, but as these install so easily, I will be able to put the OEM parts back into place with ease when not towing to soften the ride. I highly recommend for anyone pulling heavy loads. 87257


Patrick, Im still using the suspensions with and without towing. They work just as they are designed to. Very happy with them.

Review from a similar Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System

I ordered these on July 4th (Wed) and received them on Friday. As always I got very fast shipping from I installed these today on my 2009 Sierra 1500. I pull a 20ft enclosed trailer all around the mid-west and up and down the East cost. I've continually been adding things to the trailer so lately the rear of the truck has started to sag a bit when towing. This product seemed like a reasonable way to help remove the sag. I measured the truck in a couple of places near the back with the trailer hooked up prior to installation. After installation the sag was reduced by an inch to inch and a half which is what I was looking for. The truck is now very level with trailer attached. Installation was very easy as the mounting point is easy to get to. I did one side at a time by jacking up that side and removing the tire/wheel. I probably could have done it without removing the wheel, but this just made it that much easier. Remove one 10mm bolt on the original bump stop and then bolt on the new part. Tighten and you're done (well, I had to put the wheel back on, etc.) I did the whole thing in about 40 minutes. I haven't pulled the trailer yet with these installed, but I've already gotten the primary result out of the purchase which is to remove the sag in the truck when the trailer is attached. 47122

Purchased for a 2008 5.7 l Toyota Tundra. As advertised. Installed in one hour. Performed as described with an unload bed- slightly stiffer with less recoil over rough roads. Hitched the fifth wheel to the Tundra and took a one hour trip over varying road conditions. Performed exactly as I hoped. Couldn't be happier. ETrailer processed the order on the same day and I received it on the afternoon of the third day. Could not be more pleased. 109677


Thank you for your follow up inquire on the Timbren suspension parts for my 2008 Tundra. I used the vehicle for the past year to tow a Heartland fifth wheel. The parts worked as advertised and I have been happy up til I sold the Tundra. The service I received at Etrailer led me to purchase towing base plate and bar for my dinghy on our next RV. Its a pleasure dealing with Etrailer!

Review from a similar Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System

While these seemed a bit pricey for just "rubber bumpers", these "rubber bumpers" did deliver as a great suspension enhancement and were well worth the money. They installed very easily (just like the video) on my Dodge Grand Caravan. (The only thing I did different was to remove the lower bolt on the shock since it was much easier to get to than the top bolt.) They also performed excellent. With no load or a light load the van drives and feels normal (i.e. no adverse effects) and with a medium-large pop-up trailer the back end of the van sagged very little and it drove very stable. It sagged much less and drove more stable than the OEM parts with lesser loads! My experience is based on driving 3800 miles pulling a pop-up and the family to Yellowstone. Great product, service, and shipping speed from etrailer. 54505


hi, when removing the old bump stops, the basically just pulled off, leaving some foamy glue behind on the mounting plate... put the mounting plate has no bolts or fasteners to remove it, so I cant get anything on there, and my old bump stop is wrecked...

Review from a similar Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System

Installed this on my family's 2010 Town & Country. I was considering installing load-leveling shocks, but opted for these instead. I rather the weight of a trailer/cargo carrier be on the axle then the shock supports. Installation was simple and straightforward. Like others, I opted to disconnect the shock at the bottom mount than the top. It took me about 30 minutes per side, excluding tire removal and jacking up the vehicle. Suggestion... use a hydrolic jack to lift the axle a bit if you have a tough time getting the bolt connecting the shock to the mount. Do the same to reinsert the bolt when reassembling. The jury is still out on performance, however, I'm sure it will do fine based on other reviews. I attached some before and after pics. 90865

Review from a similar Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System

Overpriced.... A little slow in time to ship out from etrailer. The product does work as stated. Our 2008 Chrysler Town and Country with 20,000 miles blew both rear self adjusting shocks. We do not carry heavy loads or more than 3 people. Luckily we were still under warranty, otherwise it would have cost $300.00 per shock (parts only). In researching the shocks for the van I came across several articles on the Timbren Suspension Enhancement System. They look like what I needed to keep the shocks from going again. The price seemed high for two small rubber cylinders....but with the money back guarantee I gave it a shot. I installed them yesterday, the video was a little help, but not enough detail on how to remove and tighten the upper bolt on the shock absorber. The ride and handling of the van has improved greatly. No lean on turns and bumps are roll side to side. I recommend these for anyone with this van, even if you don't carry heavy loads, the ride improvement alone is worth the install, (easy for a novice to do). I would have given excellent if it weren't for the high cost. 21592

Review from a similar Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System

I initially ordered the wrong part, # TTORTUN4L. after realizing that I needed part, "TORTUN4" I gave them a call and the change was made before shipping, and with no problems. Very professional staff and easy to deal with. The product arrived in a timely manner and as advertised. It took me about 15 minutes to install (without removing the tires). I just crawled under my 2007 Toyota Tacoma pre runner, removed only one U-Bolt , slid one end of the Timbren under the other U-Bolt and placed the U-Bolt I removed back in place over the other side of the timbren and tightened. Repeated on other side. Due to having a fiberglass camper top on the bed and custom built storage inside of the bed the timbrens just barely hit the top bracket. therefore, the ride changed slightly, but not as bad as I thought. The springs do help significantly with body roll when making sharp turns. Overall I am extremely pleased with them. Haven't had a chance to tow with them yet, but can tell by the stiffness that there will be no problem with sagging. Thanks for the great product a helpful staff. Mark 162116

Review from a similar Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System

I received this order quickly. I installed them without any problems and they do offer additional support as shown in etrailer's website. Seems like a good product so far. 79045


The product has worked as described on the website. They have been excellent as a suspension enhancement. My Durango used to squat 3 and one half inches before installation of the Timbren support. Now when hooking up my boat my Durango goes down 2 inches and stops. I have great support and better control of my vehicle especially when fully loaded on a family vacation. Great product.

I ordered the Timbren Suspension Enhancement Kit on Monday and received it on Wednesday with the standard shipping. (Free on orders over $150.00). This is the third order from and every order has been expedited quickly and received before date quoted. All my orders have been correct and good quality. I installed the Aeon Rubber springs on my 2013 F-250 4x4 Diesel in about 20 minutes just like the video showed. With my truck bed loaded with supplies and bumper hitch trailer hooked up, my truck bed is just a hair below level; before it squatted a couple of inches. The road test will be tomorrow. 97375

Easy to install. Once placed the order I sprayed the nuts in the old ones with rust bister. When the new one arrived the old one can off with no problem and the new ones went on just as easy. Delivery was on time as promised. I have not hooked up the travel trailer yet but am positive these will correct my sag problem. Install time approx. 40 minutes. 102598


After a year the product is still working great. I have had no problems with the product and it does the job that I wanted it to do. Great product.

Review from a similar Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System

ETrailer, as usual, delivered promptly at a very fair price. The installation video made it possible for me to do the job. As usual, Dodge's design made the job a bit more difficult than expected. The shock absorber takes an 18mm socket and most socket sets skip that size. My 3/4" socket was just a bit to big to do the job without damaging the bolt head. Watch out for the brake lines that run next to the nut on the back side of the shock absorber bolt. lt took two of us to spring the axle down far enough to get the coil spring out. Alone, I could swing the axle down or move the coiled spring, but not both. I had to use a screwdriver to lever the OEM spring bumper out of it's mounting but the Timbren unit slipped into the mounting socket smoothly and with two of us, the spring went back in place easily. It took us double the expected time to do the job but we did it without a lift or the nice air tools a pro would have used. Now the test will be to haul a loaded trailer. 43491

Review from a similar Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System

Bought these as a way of reducing the 3" sag I get when dropping the 3000lb 5th wheel hitch in the back of my 2012 Ram 3500 SRW 2WD Fairly simple job to fit. I am a tall skinny guy so did not need to jack up the truck. Bump stops came off easy. The slots in the Timbren brackets could do with being 1/4" longer, I had the brackets as far forward as they would go and the Timbrens are only just central over the axle. The bolts at the rear of the bracket (the open sloted end) are tricky to get at (need a closed or open ended wrench) and if you have a 5th wheel hitch mounted to the frame close by (like I did) then you have even less room. Tip: Put the rear mounting bolts in first and slide the Timbren bracket in, that way you only have to cinch the bolt up. Did not need the spacer and have about 3/4" clearance unloaded and do not notice any change in the ride unloaded. Have not yet hooked up the trailer so can't yet comment on how much the sag is reduced. 155106

Great product, ordered these for my F-150 and was upgraded to express shipping. Received product in 4 days and took me a total of 20 minutes to install on both sides. Truck does not squat at all when it comes in contact with the springs now. Still have the smooth ride when not towing, towed my trailer with 4800lbs with no problem. Thanks for a great product. 72885


Still working the same as new. Towed 6500 lbs. and truck set normal. Still a great product. Thanks again!

Review from a similar Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System

this is a super product. This is my 2nd set of Timbren "overload springs". my first set was on my 2002 trailblazer and this set is on my 2010 Ford F150. In both cases, it has kept my vehicle perfectly level (I measured) when I loaded up with lumber, cement, sand, or any other heavy cargo. it works just as advertised. this time I loaded it up with 500 pounds of water softener salt to give me some traction through the winter. It works a lot better than Sam because I can use it up throughout the year. 10 years ago, the installation on my trailblazer was a little difficult. This time on my F150, it was a piece of cake. However, I tried for an hour to install one without removing the wheels and couldn't do it. So I got out the floor jack and jack stands (yes, I'm a little lazy at 67), pulled the 2 back wheels, and it took 20 minutes total, including pulling the wheels and putting them back on. great product and good service from 109970

Review from a similar Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System

Tough to decide, Timbrens or air suspension. I opted for Timbens in part because of price, but also no maintenance, while knowing there might be a trade-off in fine tuning the ride. I installed the Timbrens on an '09 Silverado C1500 crewcab, pulling a '13 Springdale 247FWRLLS. Last measured pin weight was 1,120 lbs. Install time was 14 minutes, clock started after purchasing and cutting a piece of 4x4 to help jack up the frame, allowing access to the space. Before Timbrens, 2" drop in bed height after hitching 5th wheel. After Timbren install, 1" drop. Ride unhitched is mostly unchanged, the bigger bumps transmit a more firm feel as the Timbrens connect though. When hitched to the 5th wheel, overall smoother, more confident ride. I'm happy with the purchase. Thank you for the fast and dependable service you are known for! Tom Round Rock, TX 54799

Review from a similar Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System

I ordered a pair of rear axle Timbrens for my new Ram 2500 as I plan to buy a 5th wheel and tour the US in my retirement. To me, the Timbrens are preferable to adding air bags or beefing up my leaf springs or shocks since they only "work" when you are loaded allowing you to keep your normal unloaded ride quality when not towing. e trailer's price, service and follow-up was great and I had the Timbrens installed and ready to roll 30 minutes after delivery. 62568

Review from a similar Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System

I purchased this kit to keep my 2013 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab Short Bed from bottoming out when it has a load in the bed. It really did the trick as well as improved the stability with or without a load. The only down side is that the suspension is much more stiff without a load in the bed. It took some getting used to, but after having them on for a couple months, it doesn't bother me. 106946

Review from a similar Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System

This product is an absolute must have if you plan on towing anything other than a lawn and garden trailer. I recently moved from DC to Tampa, FL by way of a two week stopover in MS. I towed my 5x10 trailer loaded down with 2 dirt bikes, 1 CRF50, misc other stuff as well as a van load of kids, dogs, and some other belongings. This product completely eliminated all swag and there wasn't one hint of trailer sway. Most importantly, the ride was fantastic with no bouncing or any other ridiculous behavior. These things even smoothed out that section of 59 that runs from north GA down into MS. I know they are pricey but please do yourself a favor and buy this product for yourself, especially if you're going to be towing with family in the van. Their saftey could dempend on it. 38780

Review from a similar Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System

This was very easy to install. It does require removing the wheel to install them but that is the most difficult part of the install so it's a 1 banana job. As far as function they work as advertised. I used these to tow a 5500 lb trailer. Also had a Thule box on top of the Sequoia and 4 passengers. There was a little sag (rear lower than the front) while towing but not bad maybe an inch or less. Going over bumps felt controlled with no harshness. I have used air bags on other vehicles. Although they allow more control of the ride height I don't like having to spend several hundred for an in cab controller or fiddling with adjusting the air frequently. These are a good compromise for me and did a fine job. 136899

Review from a similar Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System

They work as advertised and significantly help my truck from squatting when pulling my camper and fourwheeler together. When I talked with Timbren directly they stated these are the 8600 lb model. They don't actually make a 6000 lb model for my 2013 quad cab. After installation on my stock pickup the springs were almost two inches away from the axle. I talked with timbren and they helped me get the spacer I needed free of charge. Overall both companies have been great to work with and the product works as advertised. I haven't noticed any change in ride quality when unloaded unless I hit a big bump pretty hard than it is a little bit more stiff, nothing I would care enough to complain about though. 99307

Review from a similar Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System

I put these on a 2004 Suburban K1500 because I use it to pull a JD 990 on a 16' trailer. I also use it to pull a 23' boat. The originals were still on the truck and had definitely exceeded their life expectancy and the rear end was obviously sagging. I replaced the P series tires with LT E rated at the same time and there is a substantial improvement in the stance and handling when a trailer is attached. I recommend these to anyone towing anything with a tongue weight of >500 lbs. Be sure you don't exceed your hitches rating! A tip for the install: put liquid soap (I used laundry detergent) around the collar and it will slide right in when you lower it down on the 2x4. 43401

Review from a similar Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System

We have installed 3 sets of the Timbren rear suspension enhancement systems on 3 different fleet truck and they have all installed and worked great. We have them on 2 half-ton trucks 2014 Dodge and Chevy. Also on a 2012 Chevy 2500 crew cab with a big service box. Install took less then 20 minutes each and have helped when hauling trailers and fully loaded. As for Etrailer they have been great to work with, one of our orders was shipped from the Factory wrong, called Etrailer talked with Suzanne and had it fixed and the proper ones to me in 2 days. Bottom line, great service and great product. We will be installing on all our 3/4 tons next. 153202

Product installed very easily, spacing seems a bit much from the bottom of the product to the axle, but that could just be me. Nothing against you guys, but the package was delivered VERY damaged, some of the contents were showing outside the box. 64729


There should be a sizeable gap between the Timbren springs and the vehicle axle. The Timbren kit should only engage the axle when the vehicle is bearing a hefty load. This is to prevent un-loaded ride quality from being altered, but provide extra support when a heavy load is in the mix.

I purchased this product for my 2003 Chev, Z-71. I just received this equipment today and I installed them in about an hour. The hardest part was the removal of the old chev. parts. I had no information for the removal and it took me await to remove them but installation of this product took me about 10 minutes to install per side. So far, I really like the ride but I haven't attached my 5th wheel trailer to compare this rear suspension system product. I brought this product because my wife and I purchased a 5th wheel travel trailer and I wanted to improve the rear suspension system of my truck. So far, great product! 103407

  • Weight Distribution or Suspension Enhancement for a 1999 Chrysler Town and Country

First, if you are experiencing rear end sag because of the tongue weight of the trailer, weight distribution would be the way to go. But if you are carrying heavy loads frequently in the back of your 1999 Chrysler T and C then going with suspension enhancement would be the better choice. For weight distribution you will need a Class III trailer hitch that is rated for use with weight distribution....

The Timbren is a good, quality product that a lot of truck owners, and some minivan owners have installed. This suspension system creates a level, smooth ride when hauling heavy loads. The Timberns are not adjustable, they reduce the sag when either the trailer is mounted. The Firestone Work-Rite # F8627 also...
