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

Do you have a question about this Vehicle Suspension?


  • Weight Distribution or Suspension Enhancement for a 1999 Chrysler Town and Country
  • There are several things to consider when choosing weight distribution or suspension enhancement. 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....

  • Rear Suspension Recommendation for a 2000 Chrysler Town and Country LXI
  • The two choices that I can recommend that will work on your vehicle are the Timbren # TDVR05096 or the Firestone # F8627. The main difference between them is the feel of the ride. 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...

  • Recommend Timbren Suspension Enhancement for 2002 Chrysler Town and Country
  • The item you selected, Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement # TDVR05096, will help prevent sag on 2002 Chrysler Town and Country. The Timbren systems are designed to reduce sag on vehicles that are towing or carrying loads but it will not totally eliminate it. However, you will want to check the tongue weight capacity of your hitch and your vehicle as stated in the vehicle owners manual. It sounds like the hitch may be overloaded or the scooter is sitting too far out away from the vehicle....

  • Suspension Enhancement for a 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan with Wheelchair Lift
  • Your local or state laws may have requirements for ride height on a passenger vehicle and you should be able to contact the local DMV or State Troopers office and they should be able to tell you. A vehicle does not ever require a suspension enhancement system and the systems we carry are not lift kits. They help support the suspension and are meant to be installed on a vehicle with factory suspension that is in good working order. Given that your 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan has a wheelchair...

  • Height of Springs Used By Timbren # TDVR05096 Suspension Enhancement for 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan
  • According to my contact at Timbren, each spring unit is 5 inches tall. The spring itself is 4-3/4 inches tall, and the mounting plate is 1/4 inch thick. The Timbren spring will replace the factory bump stop.

  • Timbren Springs Fell Off Under Load on a 2005 Chrysler Town and Country
  • This is so uncommon that it is the first time I have heard of this happening. The springs are very durable rubber and unless they were installed incorrectly, in the wrong place, the wrong system was used or they were severely overloaded, I cannot think of a way this would happen. The system is meant to be installed on a vehicle with a suspension in good working order. So if there were stock suspension problems, the installer should have noticed that. The correct system for your 2005...
