Great for trucks with plows, these hollow rubber springs sit above the axle, helping to stabilize and level the truck and providing a more comfortable ride by absorbing road shock and improving roll stability. Easy to install and use.
Just as the rear of your truck sags when you're carrying a heavy load, the front of the Ford F-350, 450, and 550 Cab and Chassis will sag under the burden of heavy equipment such as a snow plow. In this case, the front axle is handling not only the weight of the equipment, but more of the Ford F-350, 450, and 550 Cab and Chassis's weight, as well. Overall Ford F-350, 450, and 550 Cab and Chassis handling - traction, steering, and braking - is negatively affected. But the resistance from Timbren's Suspension Enhancement System works with your factory suspension to keep the Ford F-350, 450, and 550 Cab and Chassis level and improve your driving experience.
The Timbren system has a Ford F-350, 450, and 550 Cab and Chassis-specific bracket that will be bolted onto each frame rail above the front axle. Hollow rubber springs are bolted to the bottom of the bracket, hanging down so that the bottom of the spring touches the axle. Because the spring is already making contact, it is working at once to cushion and support the Ford F-350, 450, and 550 Cab and Chassis's existing 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 the Ford F-350, 450, and 550 Cab and Chassis level.
Each hollow rubber spring works independently to support the driver's or passenger's side of the Ford F-350, 450, and 550 Cab and Chassis. 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 are hauling off-center loads.
Timbren's Suspension Enhancement System will raise the front of the end of the Ford F-350, 450, and 550 Cab and Chassis when heavy equipment, such as a plow, is attached. Headlight beams will point in the right direction and your tires will wear much less. If the plow is off center or has an extension, the hollow rubber 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.
Compared to the competition:
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 micro-cellular urethane. And more elasticity allows for a more comfortable ride because the rubber has more travel.
