Note: The Timbren Axle-Less suspension system may require additional support on your trailer. If your trailer does not have a crossmember above the spot where you want to install the Timbren system, you may need to reinforce the frame. You can accomplish this three ways. First, you can retrofit the trailer with a crossmember. Second, you can build out the trailer frame. Third, you can use standard, 2-inch steel tubing to connect the 2 Timbren suspensions together using the built-in square hole on each unit.


Ground Clearance

Ride on rubber with Timbren's Axle-Less trailer suspension system. This one-of-a-kind suspension consists of two separate units, each containing rugged steel arms and two strong, hollow rubber springs. Overall, the system safely and effectively absorbs road shock, minimizes trailer bounce and rattle - regardless of load size - and helps to protect your trailer's components and cargo. Built-in camber and toe-in keep your trailer tracking straight to minimize tire wear. Integrated hangers attach to your trailer's frame. And 2-inch holes make it easy to reinforce your trailer's frame by adding standard, 2-inch-square steel tubing (if needed).


The Axle-Less independent suspension system replaces your trailer's existing leaf spring suspension and can eliminate the need for an axle. The independent action of the suspension reduces roll when your trailer is cornering and allows you to maximize ground clearance and minimize deck height. Your trailer can have the same side-to-side clearance as your tow vehicle. And the low deck height makes it easy to load cargo from either the rear or the side.


Because you're riding on rubber, your trailer will ride smoothly and comfortably, whether you're navigating rocky terrain or highway asphalt.


Timbren Axle-Less Suspension Parts

Components

  1. The AEON progressive-rate main spring supports the weight of your trailer and cargo and easily absorbs road shock. It is constructed of heavy-duty, hollow rubber.
  2. The rebound spring minimizes trailer bounce, rattle and bottoming out. It keeps the suspension under constant tension and ensures that the main spring compresses and expands in a controlled fashion. And it delivers a smooth, stable ride - regardless of how much cargo is on the trailer.
  3. The trailing arm and integrated hanger attach the suspension to the side and bottom of the trailer frame.
  4. The control arm carries the spindle and the hub. It pivots on strong, long-lasting urethane bushings that never require lubrication.
  5. The EZ lube spindle is simple to grease. If damaged, it can be removed and replaced, saving you both time and money.
  6. The hub is not included with this model.
  7. The built-in square hole accepts standard 2-inch tubing. If there is no crossmember above the suspension, you can easily add support to your trailer's frame by inserting 2-inch steel tubing through the hole on each suspension unit and then bolting the tubing into place.

Timbren Axle-Less Suspension versus Leaf Springs

Leaf Spring Example

The Axle-Less suspension's progressive spring is a definitive upgrade over leaf springs. Although leaf springs deliver a stable ride when supporting a load, a trailer with leaf springs will bounce and rattle when it's empty or supporting a light or off-center load. On the other hand, your trailer can bottom out on bumpy roads if the load is too heavy. The AEON progressive-rate springs of the Axle-Less suspension always deliver the same reliable performance, no matter the load size. As more weight is added to the trailer, the springs compress and become stiffer, offering more support for heavy loads. And because they rebound more slowly than leaf springs, the AEON springs do a better job of absorbing road shock, thereby keeping your trailer from bouncing and rattling when you're carrying a light load. So with this versatile system you will enjoy a smooth ride whether you're towing an empty trailer or a hefty load.


Unlike leaf springs, Timbren's Axle-Less suspension units operate independently of one another. Each spring activates only when needed. This reduces roll and delivers top-notch performance, even when you're hauling off-center loads. When your trailer with leaf springs takes a turn, one side of the suspension compresses and takes on more weight, and the other side becomes looser and bounces. This causes rattle and can make the trailer lean to one side. But when your trailer with the Axle-Less suspension takes a turn, one side compresses and becomes more rigid to absorb the weight, and the other side expands to normal height to help steady the load and minimize bounce and rattle. The load stays better balanced, even if it is off-center.


Timbren Axle-Less Suspension versus Torsion Axles

Torsion Axle Example

Timbren's Axle-Less trailer suspension system is a great alternative to torsion axles. While both systems allow either side of the trailer's suspension to operate independently, only Axle-Less suspensions are actually separate units. Torsion axles still require a bar that spans the bottom of your trailer, whereas Timbren's system can eliminate the need for a thru axle - giving you the same amount of ground clearance from the front of your trailer to the rear. It also allows Axle-Less suspensions to fit any trailer width - unlike torsion axles, which have to be fitted to an exact frame width.


Axle-Less suspensions operate in a smoother, less stressful manner than torsion axles. Torsion axles use a twisting motion, where the bar inside the axle tube rolls against rubber cords or a rubber wall to create compression and resistance. The up-and-down motion of the main spring and the side-to-side motion of the rebound spring in Timbren's Axle-Less suspension work together to provide smooth, consistent compression - with no twisting - that results in a better ride and less stress on the suspension's components.


Installing the Timbren Axle-Less Suspension

Whether you are building a trailer or retrofitting your existing trailer with the Axle-Less system, you must make certain that the trailer's frame is both perfectly square and sturdy enough to support a heavy load without the aid of a thru axle.


Install Option 1

There are three ways to install the Axle-Less suspension. The easiest method, which is recommended if you are replacing axles on your trailer, is to install a piece of 2-inch-square tubing (sold separately - available at most weld shops) through the integrated hole in the Axle-Less suspension. Then all you need to do is bolt the suspension to the side of the trailer's frame with three bolts (not included).


Install Option 2

The second option for installation is to fabricate an inboard extension plate that attaches the trailer's frame to the Axle-Less suspension.


Install Option 3

The third method of installation is to bolt the Axle-Less suspension's hanger to the trailer's frame and to an existing crossmember that is in the area where you want to install the suspension.


With both the second and third options, you must use three bolts to attach the suspension to the side of the frame. And you also have to use two or three bolts to attach the suspension to the bottom of the frame extension, or crossmember. Both the second and third methods of installation will eliminate the need for a thru axle and provide the most clearance.


Measuring Diagram

Timbren's Axle-Less suspension units should be installed directly across from one another. Before mounting the units, measure back from the coupler and mark the frame to make sure that the two distance measurements (A and B) are within 1/8 inch of each other. Then you can drill holes through the frame and attach the hangers with Grade-5, half-inch bolts (not included).

Well this is the 6th time that you have left out a part of the suspension we order. Luckily you've fixed the situation and have told me you'd ship out replacements. But I shouldn't have to worry about getting partial shipments from you. Its an unneeded headache

Have not installed yet. Product arrived well packaged and undamaged. Appears to be very heavy duty and well built. The reason I'm only giving 4 stars is the finish on the spindle seal surface leaves much to be desired. As it is, I don't think it would take long for the seal to fail. It's nothing that a fine file and 600 grit sand paper won't take care of which I will do. It just irks me when I have to rework careless workmanship. Especially when I'm spending $[XX]. Will update after I do my installation.

Review from a similar Axle-Less Suspension in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


I used these axles in a different way than most would. I needed a trailer that was small, could handle tight switch-backs, carry 600 lbs and be light. I had this idea and as a retired design engineer I saw a great possibility in this axle. I have made four of these trailers now, one as a camp trailer, 2 for trail work for State Parks and one as a utility trailer.

Really cool work!

Review from a similar Axle-Less Suspension in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


The trailer rides great down the road and no more worries about saltwater and rusty leaf springs. Not a cheap option but I’m very happy with the setup. When installing, just be sure to measure accurately and have sharp drill bits. A drill press type of guide also helps ensure correct drilling angles. The first picture is of a mounting gusset a local welding shop made. One is needed for each side and necessary to provide needed mounting strength-at least on my trailer frame. Pics 2 and 3 show the mounted suspension on one side of the trailer. Pic 4 shows the suspension on one side of the trailer with the axle attached and a separately purchased disc brake assembly mounted on it. Finally, pic 5 shows a 2” box channel between both suspension assemblies. Independent suspensions would have been nice, but I wanted to ensure trailer rigidity was maintained. So, after one year, so far, so good. It’s all smooth sailing down the highway.

Review from a similar Axle-Less Suspension in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


Very exicited about these axels, I have been eyeing these for over a year. (Excellent service from etrailer, they had my parts to me in 1 day from the time of placing the order.) These axles seem to be well made and fit nicely with the Dexter hub and drum assembly and the 12" electric brake kit. I installed this all on a M1101/M1102 trailer frame after removing the factory axel assembly. I have not ran these on the road or off as of yet but will give another review at that time. The fit and finish are great and the packaging was good, a little banged up from shipping (missing 1 washer)

Review from a similar Axle-Less Suspension in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


Timbren saved our RV road trip! The leafs on the axle on our 2018 Jayco TT came apart while driving in Maryland. We tried going to the manufacturer, but they were useless. Going to a RV mechanic meant being grounded for at least 2 months. Then we found Timbren. With the help of Timbren's excellent staff we purchased axle-less system through etrailer, who made sure we got as quick as possible. It came ahead of schedule, my husband installed the Timbren system and we were back on the road! The axle-less system is better than the original manufacturers. If you plan on taking your RV or TT farther than 100 miles GET THIS INSTALLED and get it through etrailer.

Review from a similar Axle-Less Suspension in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


Purchased 2 sets of the Timbren 1200 Axle-less systems for upgrading the suspension on an older 30' ft glider trailer. Single axle with small (13") tires made towing tough due to porpoising, dragging on drive entrances do to poor flotation; also German made and metric, no repair parts. GVW 2000 lbs equated to bouncy ride. Dual sets now allow the trailer to ride over bumps and sharp inclines easily, smoothly, little bounce on country roads; porpoising is history. My glider now rides securely, safely, quietly. Install time 4 1/2 hours (includes head-scratching). Results are outstanding, units are totally solid. Recommend the square tube interconnect, easy and quick - trailer frame was on the light side, so a precautionary fix. Clean look underneath. Ordered 5 wheels w/tires, very nice. Helpful neighbor so impressed he ordered a HD single set for his new DIY snowmobile trailer. Customer satisfaction 100%, from phone order, online support, product information, immediate shipping, install instructions, followup... HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!


Comments
I have just a little more to add regarding my purchase: Two sets, of the Timbren Axle-less assemblies, 1200 lb, and 5 wheels. I placed the order via phone, and whoever was on-call that day provided great answers and recommendations regarding the units, wheels and tires. At 31 feet, the trailer originally exhibited amplified porpoising on any bumps or dips in the road. Also bouncing and occasional sideways tipping due to the single axle. It made a lot of noise on my mountain community washboards. I speculated that the Timbren units would solve most, if not all of these problems and they have. Installation on my older 31 ft European ie, metric and no longer manufactured glider trailer was a mere 4.5 hours from removal of the old single axle to setting the trailer back down on its new assemblies. Instructions are complete, precise, useful and helpful. Appreciated. Little to comment on as installation was all straight-forward. I would like to describe the maiden voyage to the airport and back, but there is nothing to tell, other than it towed beautifully proper alignment instructions, and all that I viewed from the rear view mirror looked like a magic carpet ride. It rides over washboards and pot holes like a marathon hurdler, the 4-wheel independent suspension is great. Packaging: the shipping boxes all arrived in good condition, but the cardboard component boxes inside them... not so much. Most were ripped and open due to heavy components lightly surrounded with brown packing paper, just token amounts. Parts: all was accounted for minus a pair of spindle axle washers for one set, easily replaced at the local farm and ranch supply. No squawk, just an fyi. I am very pleased with your product and support, and was happy to leave a 5-star review with photos. The upgraded suspension was also a topic this past weekend at the glider port by those who regularly trailer their ships to various soaring events, some as far as a thousand miles away. My compliments to eTrailers, hope you can use my info,

Review from a similar Axle-Less Suspension in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


Pleased with ETRAILER, will order here again. Not as happy with the torsion axle setup. 2 inch square opening for tying both axles together with your own 2" square tubing are not shaped to match 2x2x1/8 tubing. Grinding and welding of tubing required to make it fit. Also found the overslung stub axle left the end of the pivot arm without much ground clearance though the unit was intended and spec'd for atv tire off road use. A pivot arm with mounting pads top and bottom would be better and allow the user to choose high or low clearance use. I found the units were perfectly suited to offroad use once I fabricated new mounting pads and welded them to the bottom of the arms.


Comments
After a year of off road use, I couldnt be happier. My trailer rides smooth loaded or unloaded. No of that bunny hopp with leaf springs or rigid mount axles. The small rebound control snubber works perfectly! I modified my components for high clearance but the concept is sound, they work well. Great job Timbren!

Review from a similar Axle-Less Suspension in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


The order came in on time and the customer service at etrailer.com (Ashley) and Sean from Tmbren was outstanding. They both were very helpful in my choosing the right product for my needs. The axle less suspension's performance is absolutely superb. It vastly improves ride quality. I am using it on a teardrop camper that often goes on gravel roads and the raddling sound from the leaf axles was horrible. A couple of points to consider before you settle on the axle less suspension: keep in mind that you will lose some hight of the trailer. While you will gain clearance from the lack of the axle, the suspension will make the trailer sit lower than before.i had to lower my hitch by an inch to maintain the trailer leveled. Also it does appear to compress at higher rate than the leaf springs, which makes it softer but easier to reach it's limit. Overall this product is absolutely a must if you are looking to improve the safety and the quality of your towing.

Review from a similar Axle-Less Suspension in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


After a great deal of research, I ultimately chose the Timbren long arm kit to replace the torsion axle under my teardrop trailer. My initial impression is that there is simply no comparison between the two. It now rides better, pulls better and handles better than I could have imagined. The Timbren axle system is incredibly well built and is much more confidence-inspiring. While the spring rate closely matches my trailer weight, the components are much more rugged and robust. The spindles, bearings and brakes are rated at double the capacity of my old axle which gives me great peace of mind. I pull my trailer, both on and off road, anywhere it will fit and the long travel and heavier components are a game-changer for my travels. Installation, while requiring a bit of forethought, was otherwise straightforward and methodical. Documentation available from etrailer and Timbren, is second to none. Instructions were clear and concise with drawings and detail taking the major guesswork out of the equation. Even though, due to the odd frame design of my trailer that required a bit of work to adapt, I ended up making some frame stiffeners, the adaptation was as simple as it could possibly be. I've ordered from etrailer in the past and they were 100% accurate on this order as well. I ordered the Timbren kit without backing plates and hubs due to the requirements of my trailer and etrailer suggested, explained availability and supplied all of the components I needed. They truly a stress-less bunch of folks with an extraordinary website. I'll no doubt turn to them again...

It was a very straight forward install, it goes pretty smooth if you take your time, double check your layout, Make sure of your bolt sizes (length) before going to the store. If you plan the project, don’t rush, its not a race, it goes really good. I spent about 10 hours spread over two days by myself. I am just waiting for tires to arrive. All that said very happy with the product and etrailer. Will recommend for any axel/suspension replacement.

These units install easily, are well made, and perform great! The trailer doesn't bounce around like you see a lot of trailers do while traveling down a bumpy road. I traveled some unpaved roads with no issues. I am certainly glad I went axleless. I installed with 15" tires. Problem is I didn't go big enough. I intended to install on an existing trailer that I had. Changed my mind and built a new trailer. The new trailer came in heavier than I had planned. 2k pound capacity is now too small. I have to watch what I load the trailer with so I don't over load the suspension. I intend on buying the 3500 pound units when I have the money.

This suspension system did EXACTLY what I wanted. I replaced the leaf springs, axle/hubs on my small trailer. The new suspension improved the capacity, lowered the bed 4+inches, improved ground clearance and allowed me to rebalance the trailer all WITHOUT having to have any welding done. Everything needs to be measured very exactly and the alignment technique is fairly cumbersome and takes a bit of time. In the end, I have a quiet, steady, strong, low riding trailer. What more could you ask for

  • Recommended Replacement Boat Trailer Axle and Suspension
    For your system due to the unique width, I recommend the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System - 2,200 lbs # ASR1THDS02. This system has the integrated suspension and just needs a 2 inch square tube (not included) to fit into the integrated holes of the assemblies. For galvanized hubs, you can use the 5 bolt # AKIHUB-545-35-G-EZ-K. If you trailer is much larger, then let me know what you have and I can give you the more compatible load capacity. Normally the 60 inch boat...

  • Helper Spring System for Snowmobile Trailer With 3500 lb Axle
    Timbren doesn't offer an application, but SumoSprings does. If your trailer has a overslung axle, where the leaf spring pack sits atop the axle beam, use # TSS-107-40 or if you have an underslung axle where the leaf spring pack sits under the axle beam, use # TSS-106-40. Either system is rated for axles with a 3-5K capacity, so it'll work great on the 3.5K axle of your snowmobile trailer. I've linked to product videos for he helper spring systems mentioned above.

  • Idler Hub Recommendation with 5 on 4-1/2 inch Bolt Pattern for a Timbren Axle Less ASR1THDS02
    Just because the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System # ASR1THDS02 has brake mounting flanges does not mean you have to run hub/drums on them. You can install idler hubs on the spindles just fine. For an idler hub that would fit the spindles that has a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern you would want the part # 8-248-50. Everything you mentioned to mount the hub on the spindle comes with the spindle. The Timbren would get bolted or welded to the trailer frame. Welding should...

  • Suspension for Small Off-Road Camper
    You would be find with either the 2,000 or 2,500 lbs springs. I would go with the 2,500 lb springs # SP-219275 so that you are safe in the future if you decide you want to add accessories or supplies on the inside. You could also go with the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System # ASR1THDS02. These are very popular among people who are building smaller off-road campers. People like the ground clearance that they get with it and that their trailer now has independent suspension.

    Yes. You can add a second axle with a Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System - Spindle w/Brake Flange - Off-Road Tires - 2,200 lbs # ASR1THDS02. When adding a second axle, you will want to ensure that they are the same capacity and use the same size wheels, etc. When adding a second axle the pivot point of the trailer changes, so where your current axle sits is where you would split the distance for a tandem axle application or where your center hanger would need to be if you were...

  • Could Timbren Axle Less Kit Fit Triton Elite 101 Trailer
    The Timbren axle less kit part # ASR1THDS02 that you referenced can install be bolting to the trailer frame or by welding to it. It is compatible with the Triton Elite 101 trailer frame you have as well. As long as your trailer had 3,500 lb axle hubs on it prior they would transfer to this kit as well. Otherwise you'd need new hub/drums with the part # 84546UC3-EZ. Your spindle would need to have had a diameter of 1.378 and 1.063 inch for the current hubs to fit the Timbren.

  • Should Lighter Off-Road Trailer Have Brakes Added
    In off-road situations it's gets a little more tricky with adding brakes to the trailer and having them actuate properly since the terrain changes a lot and traction is really inconsistent. I'd go with the part # ASR1THDS02 and idler hubs like the # 84545UC1-EZ and you'd be set.

  • What is Needed to Convert Oil Bath Hub to Grease and Also Pick Out Replacement Spindle
    In general you don't have to do anything to your current setup to convert it to grease aside from just remove all of the oil and replace it with grease. The oil seals will work just fine with grease instead so all you need is hub grease like the LMX Red part # L11390 and you'd be set. Since your spindles are shot though I will need to know more info to pick out the correct replacements. Use a digital caliper like the part # PTW80157 to measure the spindle you have where the bearings...

  • Timbren Axleless Suspension System for 265/75R16 Tires.
    The Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System part # ASR2000S02 states "regular" as opposed to "off road". The off road version part # ASR1THDS02 has more distance between the hub face and the frame of the trailer. These are very popular with the off road camper that have larger 31" x 10.5" or 33" x 12.5" type tires. With your tire size of 265/75R16 that means you have 31.65" x 10.43" tires with that said the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System - Spindle w/Brake Flange - Off-Road...

    I would be happy to recommend some components for you, but there is no disc brake kit currently available with the 5 on 5" bolt pattern, and none of the 5 on 5" bolt pattern hubs that are available will work with 17" wheels. You will want to stick with a 15" wheel as that is the largest wheel that will work without any issues. Starting with the Timbren kit I recommend the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System - Spindle w/Brake Flange - Off-Road Tires - 2,200 lbs # ASR1THDS02. For...

  • Wheel Recommendation for Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System # A12WS545
    After doing some research on the 2011 Jeep Wrangler, it appears the bolt pattern of the OEM wheels is 5 on 5 inches. If that is the case, they will not be compatible with the hubs that come with the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System, # A12WS545, that you referenced in your question. The hubs and spindles included are designed for 5 on 4-1/2 bolt patterns. If you are unsure of your wheel's bolt pattern, I have included a helpful article that explains how to measure this. I do...

  • Timbren Axle-Less Suspension System Compatible with Jeep for Matching Trailer
    For the Timbren Axle-Less kit compatible with the bolt pattern of 5 on 5 like a Jeep, you would need the 2,200 lb capacity # ASR1THDS03. The spindles on the Timbren system are a little larger than their thru-axle counterparts, so the 3,500 lbs # ASR3500S06 will only fit larger hubs that won't have the bolt pattern you seek. Using # ASR1THDS03, you can then use the Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 3,500-lb E-Z Lube Axles - 5 on 5 # AKIHUB-550-35-EZ-K or the Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly...

  • 2,200 lb Axle Replacement System for Triton Snowmobile Trialer
    We have an option to replace the torsion axle on your 1996 Triton snowmobile trailer, but do not carry any torsion axles. Instead, the best option we have is a Timbren Axle-Less trailer suspension system which are simply bolted or welded so you do not have to worry about finding an axle that meets any specific measurements. They also offer you an improved ride compared to a traditional through-axle because the Timbrens work independently so if there is a bump on one side of the road it...

I propose a different approach by using a Timbren axle-less system # ASR2KHDS01.

They are also set up for electric...
