Today on this 2009 Dodge Ram 1500, were going to install part number TDR1500DQ from Timbren. First thing we need to do is go ahead and raise the vehicle up and then well go ahead and remove the factory bump stops. Alright, now weve got the old ones removed, we'll now go ahead and install the new Timbren. Well go ahead and spray some soapy water on it and our Timbren has already come pre-assembled in a package, so all we got to do is install it on the vehicle. Were going to fit up into the cup right here. So what well do, well start it, put in place with pieces of little piece of timber between two and lower the truck onto it so it pushes the Timbren part up into the cup.
Ok, we're using a piece of 2 by 4. For the thing now hard this is to install, you may have to use two blocks and have the weight pushed up in there, and then go ahead and pick it back up so you can take up the block. Make sure its fully seated, of course. You may have to do this a couple of times. We still got a little bit of a gap, so were going to use one more piece of wood to help push it into place.
Ok, now, its fully seeded. Its even all the way around and were finished. All you got to do now is repeat same process on the passenger's side. And with that, thatll finish it for our install part number TDR1500DQ from Timbren on our 2009 Dodge Ram 1500.
Today on our 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 we'll be installing Timbren Suspension Enhancement System, part number TDR2500CA. Now this will be for the rear. Now before installing the Timbrens you may need to raise the vehicle to allow the axle to hang freely. We'll need to remove the existing bump stops. We'll take out the two bolts holding it in place. Now we'll need to keep the bolts as we will reuse them when installing our Timbren Suspension.
Today on our 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 we'll be installing the Timbren Suspension Enhancement System, part number TDF25004B on the front axle. Now to begin our installation we'll need to raise the vehicle to allow the axle to hang freely. We'll remove the existing bump stops by prying it out of the bump stop cup. We can then position the Timbren Spring Assembly into the bump stop cup and press it into place. You may need to use a soapy water as a lubricant to get it up into the cup. With your spring assembly loosely fit into the cup we can then use a piece of wood such as a 2x4 to place between the spring and the axle itself.
Today we are working on a 2007 Dodge Ram 1500, we will be installing Firestone Air Spring Kit part number F2286. Per the instructions it is not necessary to take the wheels off the vehicle, but we found that this application is much easier if you do so. Our first step will be to remove the manufactures bum stops. They are two fasteners, one on each side. Now that we have our bum stop removed, we will come over to our air bag and get it set up. :33

Today on this 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 we are going to install part number F8620 from Firestone. This is their Work-Rite Load Assist. To give you an idea of what is going on the new Firestone part actually replaces the factory bump stop right here. When you have the truck fully loaded, the only way it is going to stop is when it hits this bump stop and goes down to the axle. You can see we have got quite a bit of difference so if we put a load in the back of the truck or bounce up and down the road you can see how much travel this has. 00:28
