Great for trucks with plows, these hollow rubber springs sit above the axle, helping to stabilize and level the truck while providing a more comfortable ride by absorbing road shock and improving roll stability. Easy to install and use.
Just as when a truck bed is loaded, the front of the Nissan Frontier will sag when 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 Nissan Frontier's weight as well. Overall Nissan Frontier handling - traction, steering, and braking - is negatively affected. The resistance from Timbren's Suspension Enhancement System works with the Nissan Frontier's factory suspension to keep the Nissan Frontier level and improve your driving performance.
The Timbren system has a Nissan Frontier-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 is touches the axle. Because the spring is already making contact, it is working at once to cushion and support the Nissan Frontier'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 provides increased resistance, stiffening the suspension and keeping the Nissan Frontier level.
Each hollow rubber spring works independently to support the driver's or passenger's side of the Nissan Frontier. 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.
Timbren's Suspension Enhancement System will raise the front of the end of the Nissan Frontier when heavy equipment, such as a plow, is attached. 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 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 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.

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

Here some pictures of the installation of the Timbren Front SES on my 2001 Chevy Silverado 1500 Extended Cab. It took longer to back off the top shock nut to drop the A-arm enough to get the bumper in than the actual install took. Some Windex on the bumper went a long way to get them in too. I got these for better ride height with my Snow-Way 26 plow I got last year. I had 4” above the front wheels (to body) and 15.5” under the plow when raised with stock bumpers. With the Timbren installed I have 5.5” above the front wheels and 20” under the plow now. I’ll see how it rides this week. 24647
My Timbren kit arrived quickly and was exactly as described. The fit on my '06 Sierra was perfect. Took me about an hour to install the fronts and an hour for the rears. The timbrens levels out my truck and elminated poor handling I was experiencing with a heavy load in the bed of my truck. I'm carrying equipment weighing about 1200 lbs in the bed of my truck. I was down on the front bump stops and had less than 1" of clearance on the rear stops. The timbrens leveled the whole truck and easily handle the load. I'm much happier with the ride and handling of my truck. It no longer rolls side to side through the corners and tracks normally on the freeway; even in high cross winds. etrailer.com provided good customer service and I really apreciated the fast updates on the status of my order. 44684

These are excellent bump stops! I have an 02 Yukon xl and my suspension was just about gone but after installing front and rear bump stops its like the truck just rolled off the essembly line. It's a tiny bit stiff but 100% stability improvement I highly recommend getting these I also have a 17' by 8' foot enclosed tandem trailer completely packed weighs 5 ton on the scale put it on the tounge took it for a spin without the wieght distribution bar and what do you know, no sag these are well worth the investment! Installation was a bit tricky on the rear had to pull some tricks out of my sleeve but once I got the first one on 1 hr later second one only took 10 minutes, front ones were a breeze twist and push didn't even have to take off the shock. Good luck and have fun! 58549

I have a 24 ft scotty motorhome built on a dodge diesel 3500. I have want to improve the sway for ever. I read about the timbren and ordered them. First I have to scythe service from e-trailer is fantastic. From the first day ordering until received the communication was great and I truly appreciate it and highly recommend e-trailer. Second I just put the timbren ses front suspension on and took a ride and the ride improved dramatically, bumps that were harsh before hardly were felt now the sway also decreased a great deal. I have the air ones on back and constantly have to put air in I'm pretty sure I,m going to put the heavy duty timbren on back. I normally don't write reviews but was so impressed with e-trailer and timbren, I had too Thankyou 42861

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

I put these on my 2010 dodge 3500. I use the truck to snow plow and was dragging the plow frame entering and exiting certain areas where the elevation changed abruptly. The truck would sink about 4" in the front with my 1400lb plow. Now it sinks 1" and doesnt drag. These are VERY EASY to install as well. NO drilling or even bolting! just jack the truck, line it up, set it down 6107

Product was shipped in a timely manner.This was my third time ordering from etrailer will do so in the future. Instructions and videos are very helpful. I believe that by having instructional videos increases sales for the company tremendously. If a DIY person has the help and instructions they will order more products. Very satisfied with company so far. 79083

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

Work great with a little extra weight on the front end. Easy to install... out with the old in with the new. I have to say that e-trailer has the best customer service I have ever experienced buying on line. From the time I ordered they kept me updated on the status and that made the experiance worth it. 69026

Jack the truck up; simple to install, I used thread lock (red) for safety. The only problem I had was the lower control arm of my '12 Tacoma obstructed my the use a 8 mm hex wrench to tighten it past hand tight. 129760

Order came in on time. Product looks great. Install was simple, however I recommend to use a little WD40 on the insert hub as this helps slide it in the bump stop cup because it is a very tight fit. 24909

Product does what it is intended to do. Although with my application, installation was harder than needed. Poor design for installation purposes. 7076
