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 2-inch x 3-inch rectangular 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 x 3-inch holes make it easy to reinforce your trailer's frame by adding 2-inch x 3-inch rectangular 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


  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 hole accepts 2-inch by 3-inch tubing. If there is no crossmember above the suspension, you can easily add support to your trailer's frame by inserting 2-inch by 3-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 x 3-inch rectangular 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).

Timbren Axle-Less Suspension - Spindle Only - Regular Tires - 5200 lbs

Item # ASR5200S01

Looks great on empty trailer, idea is good, bad execution.
When loaded tires "splay out" severely, excessive tire wear, obviously too much play in system somewhere.

Excessive camber which causes wear on the portion of the tire tread closest to the trailer can be caused by a few different things. 1 The axle-less suspension system has a 5200 lb per set capacity, so youll want to be sure this amount is not being exceeded. 2 The surface of the trailer that the suspension member is added to needs to be an integral part of the trailer that should have NO give in it whatsoever. Any flexing of the side member there will throw off the camber of the tires. I have seen what you describe occur when the suspension system has been mounted to tubular steel that made up the edge of the trailer frame. In that instance, some angle iron was added to stiffen things up. 3 Its not required, but a piece of 2x3 inch tube steel of the appropriate length can be used as a beam connecting the two sides, utilizing the existing hole in the axle-less suspension member. This will help stiffen things up. 4 The suspension system should have included some shims that can be used where the spindle attaches to the suspension portion of the assembly. Using these shims can decrease the camber, but only if the points mentioned above are taken care of. Ive checked with Timbren regarding the above, and they concur.

Purchased these axle - less suspension sets to build a single axle utility trailer. They arrived in excellent condition and appear well made. Installation instructions are clear and well written. Also ordered hubs, coupler hitch, rims, lights, stake pockets and other heavy items. My order arrived complete, very well packaged and timely in eight boxes. The boxes Etrailer used for packing were heavily made and undamaged in shipping. No missing parts because of the superior way they were packed. I will definitely order from Etrailer again.


Used these to replace half torsion axles on drop down ice shack. Hesitant to spend the $$$ but glad I did. Well built, less space and smooth ride. Replaceable spindles a plus.


A little bit pricey, at first. But in the long run they are cheaper. We used to bend or break an axle every 3 or 4 months. But we have had these a couple of years now with no problems. One thing that is nice is on a tandem axle set up you can get a flat and you just have to take the wheel off and run on 3 or 2 wheels without the hubs hitting the ground.


The products are good quality and durable. Etrailers has good pricing, shipping and an easy transaction. Etrailers provides so many different trailer products, you can't go wrong. Thank you Etrailer.

Review from a similar Axle-Less Suspension in Trailer Axles

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.

Actually over a year, and still working great.

Review from a similar Axle-Less Suspension in Trailer Axles

I installed these on my single axle travel trailer to replace the axle and leaf springs. Weight savings was a wash with the required steel tube for added stability. I installed on an I-Beam using aluminum plate as a spacer. It took my friend and I 3 days to install everything. The hardest part was rerouting my black pipe propane line. I also had to install it just back of center due to a steel cross beam being in the way of the middle bolt hole. I replaced the brakes and hubs as well as the wheels to match the new hubs.

Overall we've been super happy with this upgrade. The trailer rides a lot smoother. I'm not finding random screws on the floor after a long bump ride.

We decided to do this after our leaf spring broke 2 times, 12k miles between. We were done dealing with a subpar suspension. I probably would not recommend doing this if your leaf springs are working for you. We put a lot of miles on our trailer. We aren't weekend campers.

1 year later still working great! Very happy with the performance. We have driven at least 20k miles with these springs and have not had a single issue. I also am happy I upgraded weight limits on everything.

Review from a similar Axle-Less Suspension in Trailer Axles

Incredible system. Handled our Overland trek through Colorado and Moab. These axles on our 1917 Ford bed ran multiple Jeep Badge of Honor trails. The suspension handled flawlessly. Handles off camber rocks and drop offs smoothly. We ran the 4 inch lift and off road offset to fit the factory Jeep wheels.

Very easy to install, rides and tracks really good! I highly recommend these axles


Review from a similar Axle-Less Suspension in Trailer Axles

The axle-less suspension worked very well for my boat trailer. The suspension was easy to attach to the trailer frame and provided a lower profile than the traditional leaf spring and axle system.


Review from a similar Axle-Less Suspension in Trailer Axles

They have more pros than cons, but the second set I bought broke the flat plate that holds the spindle at about 8 months. The steel quality seemed less than I would expect since it basically peeled it back like a pop can as you can see in the pictures. Otherwise I like the clearance and ride. They last 2-3 years where the torsion axles I replaced would wear out in 4 months after driving down rough gravel roads. There is a grade zerk on the underside which I didn't realize until I bought the second set. That would have helped the first set last longer had I known about it.

Needed a suspension system that I could make a low profile kayak trailer, that would fit in a specific area next to my garage. These were excellent that I could make the trailer any width I wanted. Easy to install and well made.


Review from a similar Axle-Less Suspension in Trailer Axles

I put these on an off-road trailer build. They have been fantastic! I've done many miles and they held up great. Highly recommend.


Review from a similar Axle-Less Suspension in Trailer Axles

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 Axles

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!

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 Axles

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.

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 Axles

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.

Things have worked out well, can hardly tell there is a trailer behind the ATV very smooth ride almost no noise, vert satisfied.

Review from a similar Axle-Less Suspension in Trailer Axles

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 Axles

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 Axles

I am not a mechanic so Brandi was real helpful. Had to get some professional help to remove the old suspension and install the new suspension. The only drawback we ran into was the spindle did not extend out far enough to mount the tires in the normal way. We had to put the tires on backwards. It all worked out beautifully. Towed the trailer for over 1700 miles without any problems. Brandi was delightful to talk with and very patient with me. Her help was most appreciated. Sorry, I didn't take any pictures.

Review from a similar Axle-Less Suspension in Trailer Axles

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.

    You could install disc brakes on the Timbren Axle-Less Suspension # ASR5200S01. You would use one of the kits from the link I have included to the right. All of these kits have a 6 on 5-1/2 bolt pattern. The kits linked take the same inner bearing but the outer bearing listed for the Timbren system is different than what the description states. The reason for this is that the spindle takes an outer bearing with a 1.25 inch inner diameter. The outer diameter would need to match the hub....

  • Can Timbren Axle-Less Suspension be Used on a Triple Axle Trailer
    I spoke with the engineers over at Timbren. The reason that they do not recommend the axle-less suspension systems, such as # ASR5200S01, for triple axle applications is because there is no equalization between what would be the axles of the trailer. Without that a trailer that is not fully level would put to much stress and/or weight on the other sets. The engineer said that they have done it before and it can be done but unless the trailer is always fully level, when loaded or not, it...

  • How to Determine Trailer Axle Position When Building a Home Made Trailer
    Determining axle placement can be difficult when the trailer is not already built. You can use the formulas in the picture as a guide and that should help. Typically on a trailer, 60 percent of the weight is forward of the axle. If you think of a trailer that is 10 feet long overall, the center of the axle would be placed 6 feet back. That is a good place to start and you will likely have to make some adjustments later.

  • Availability of Maintenance on Timbren Axle-Less System ASR5200S01
    The Timbren Axle-Less System # ASR5200S01 you are looking at has the straight, EZ Lube spindles that accept either 5,200-lb brake assemblies or idler hubs of which the hubs, bearings, and spindle nuts are sold separately, so they will be maintainable. I've included a picture from the instructions for you to look at that talks about how when performing maintenance that the trailer should be on level ground. The rubber springs and spindle assemblies are replaceable if worn or damaged.

  • Where to Place Axles on Triple Axle Trailer Getting Built
    In order to calculate where the axles would go on your trailer, there are several things that need to be taken into consideration. You will have to mock up the trailer with the suspension and axles to get the weights needed to determine where the axles need to be positioned. I have attached a photo that shows you the formulas needed to determine the correct position of the axles. Basically you want to start with the center axle being 60 percent back from the coupler with 40 percent of...

  • Can Timbren Axle-less Suspension be Added to a Trailer to Increase its Capacity
    Technically, no, adding a Timbren axle-less system like # ASR5200S01 would not increase the trailer capacity. The capacity, which is mainly set by the axles, also is determined by several other factors including tires, wheels, suspension components, and the actual construction of the frame. Adding the system would provide more support but you would likely have to adjust the location of the existing axle to get the right spacing between it and the axle-less system and measurements from...

  • Can I use the Timbren Axle-Less Suspension on my Boat Trailer
    Yes, the Timbren Axle-Less Suspensions # ASR5200S01 have a black powder coat finish on them that helps them resist wear and corrosion. This finish will help the axles to withstand the saltwater environment.

  • Replacement Options for a Lippert 5,200 Lb Axle
    I do have an option for you but we do not carry any 5,200 lb standard axles. Instead, the only thing we can offer you is an axle-less system like the Timbren Axle-Less Suspension System part # ASR5200S01. This system actually uses rubber bumpers to replace the leaf springs and will do a much better job of absorbing road shock and support the trailer's load than the traditional leaf springs you have now. It comes with a 5 bolt brake mounting flange and works with hubs that use a 25580 inner/LM67048...

  • Could Timbren Axle Less Kit ASR5200S01 Fit 1982 Starcraft Starmaster XLT1906
    If you took your trailer to a qualified fabricator with the Timbren Axle Less kit part # ASR5200S01 I am confident they could come up with a bracket setup that would allow the axle to install. They will have to box the frame down below the V shape your frame has.

  • Dual Axle Spacing With a Timbren ASR5200S01
    With an ST235/75R15 tire generally being right at or just under 29 inches, depending on the tire manufacturer, and needing at least 2 inches between the tires, you will want the spindles to measure at least 31 inches from center to center. A little more would be better, however. The Timbren # ASR5200S01 is pretty forgiving when it comes to spacing, but I would recommend going 32 to 33 inches between the center of the spindles. This will give you plenty of space between the tires.

  • Can Timbren ASR5200S01 Axle-Less Suspension Be Installed on an I-Beam Frame
    I spoke with my contact at Timbren, who tells me that a 6 inch I-beam should have the necessary rigidity to properly support your trailer and to resist torque placed on the frame member, even though you won't be able to use a square piece of tubing. He went on to say that in order to install the # ASR5200S01 Timbren Axle-Less suspension, you'd need to have the outside of the I-beam boxed in by having some steel plate welded to it. Boxing off the I-beam will add additional strength to...
