3,000-lb Capacity. Great for trucks with plows, these front hollow rubber springs help to stabilize and level your Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty. They also provide a more comfortable ride by absorbing road shock and improving roll stability. Easy to install and use.
Just like the rear of your Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty will sag under the weight of a fully loaded bed, the front of your vehicle will sag when under the burden of heavy equipment such as a snowplow. In this case, the front axle is handling not only the weight of the equipment, but also more of the vehicle's weight. Overall Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty handling - traction, steering, and braking - is negatively affected. But the resistance from Timbren's Suspension Enhancement System works with your factory suspension to keep your vehicle level and improve your driving experience.
The Timbren system comes with custom-fit brackets that are bolted onto each frame rail above your front axle. Hollow rubber springs are bolted to the bottom of the bracket and hang down so that the bottom of each spring touches the axle. Because each spring is making constant contact with the axle, it is always working to cushion and support your factory suspension.
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 increases resistance, stiffening the suspension and keeping your Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty level.
Each hollow rubber spring works independently to support the driver's-side or passenger's-side of your Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty. 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 you're carrying off-center loads.
Timbren's Suspension Enhancement System will help raise the front end of your Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty when you're using heavy equipment like a snowplow. This ensures that your headlight beams will be pointed in the right direction and tire wear will be reduced. If the plow is off-center or has an extension, the springs will automatically compensate for this as well.
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 because the rubber springs work to prevent bottoming out on rough roads.
Timbren's Suspension Enhancement Systems are much easier to install than air springs - there are no air hoses to run, no compressors or gauges to hook up, and no manual adjustments to make. The rubber construction makes Timbren's springs more elastic than similar products constructed of microcellular urethane. More elasticity allows for a more comfortable ride because the rubber has more travel.

I installed these springs on the front a 2002 Ford Excursion with a 7.3L diesel. The kit has excellent fit & finish. It was very simple, and straightforward to install as well. If you can put a nut on a bolt, and change a tire you can do this. The hardest part was the bolts on the drivers side due to the tight area between frame, suspension, and axle parts. The passenger side was very easy. These replace the factory bumpstops between the framerail, and axle. They have stopped the heavy engine from bottoming out the suspension when hitting severe bumps, and do so without making the ride anymore harsh than before. I definately recommend this product. 10906

Noticeable improvement I bought a 2001 Excursion 4X4 with 168000 miles. Of course it had expected wear/tear. The ride had a noticeable sway in turns and the suspension was too loose for my liking. I replaced the shocks and still saw little improvement. I then intstalled this Timbren SES and noticed an immediate difference. The sway is gone and the suspension is much better. It is a little stiffer of a ride, but very acceptable. I bought a 4X4 so that's what I expected anyway. Installation was simple and I didn't even have to remove the tires or shocks to install. Took less than 3 hours to install front and rear sets. I am pleased with the system so far. 3765

Installed even easier than I thought. On my '04 F250(Front), they were a direct swap for the factory bump stops and easily accessible. I installed them to help with a Western V-plow I installed. Don't even notice a drop when the plow is picked up. The Timbrens look to be a very simple and cost-effective way to manage extra weight on your truck. 10207
