Is this right for you? Product Expert Kathleen M says:

Yes, if you:

  • Get jumpy when creaks and squeaks sound from your suspension and want something smooth and quiet
  • Spend a lot of time on the road and need some extra cushion to keep you and your stuff from being bounced around
  • Have triple axle trailer that you want to enhance - you can use one of these per axle to give you a much smoother ride

No, if you:

  • Want something simple to put on - this does require some welding to get installed
  • Plan to put on bigger tires or a lift kit to match the height of your vehicle - you might have to get creative to increase that deck height
Rubberized, pivoting trailer suspension system replaces your leaf spring suspension to provide a smooth ride. Pivoting arms help keep your trailer level on rough ground.

Ride on rubber springs with Timbren's Silent Ride suspension system. This suspension system consists of 2 rugged steel units that work with your trailer's existing axle and hubs to absorb road shock, minimize trailer bounce and rattle - regardless of load size - and help to protect your trailer's components and cargo.


Silent Ride replaces your trailer's existing leaf spring suspension to ensure that your trailer will ride smoothly and comfortably, no matter what road conditions you are faced with on your journey.


Timbren Silent Ride Suspension vs. Leaf Springs

The Timbren Silent Ride suspension system is a definitive upgrade over leaf springs. Although leaf springs deliver a stable ride when supporting a load, a trailer with leaf springs will often 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.


With Timbren's Silent Ride suspension, you'll enjoy a smooth ride whether you're towing an empty trailer or a hefty load. The Aeon progressive-rate rubber springs of the Silent Ride always deliver the same reliable performance, no matter the load size. If your trailer is carrying a light load, or no load, the springs will compress just enough to counteract any bounce. As more weight is added to the trailer, the springs compress and become stiffer, offering more support for heavy loads. And because they rebound in a more controlled fashion than metal leaf springs, the Silent Ride springs do a better job of absorbing road shock to keep your trailer from bouncing and rattling.


The springs activate only when needed. This reduces body roll and delivers top-notch performance. 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 a trailer with a Silent Ride 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 Silent Ride Suspension vs. Torsion Axles

The Silent Ride suspension system is a great alternative to torsion axles as well, in part because it offers greater flexibility for off-road use. While both systems allow either side of a trailer's suspension to operate independently, the Silent Ride offers better shock absorption thanks to the Aeon progressive-rate springs. Not only do the Aeon springs in the Silent Ride units activate progressively to give just the right amount of support and shock absorption, they also respond immediately. Torsion axles have rubber inside the beam that counteracts shock using compressive resistance, but this doesn't happen until the bar inside the axle twists in response to one side of the trailer going over a bump, for example. This built-in resistance can be effective in maintaining a steady ride, but the design doesn't allow the system to absorb shock as well as the Aeon springs in the Silent Ride setup.


In addition, one frequent complaint about torsion axles is that they cannot be repaired in the event that something goes wrong. But the individual components of the Silent Ride suspension system can be repaired or replaced if needed.

Review from a similar Silent Ride in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


Disappointed beyond belief in both Timbren and etrailer. I not only lost a 20plus year customer I also lost a good friend ontop of being out of pocket the entire cost of this silent ride suspension setup and 8 hrs of Labor .I don't even know what to do with the suspension now because its going to cost me $200 plus to ship it back but the original boxes were thrown so doubtfully it will be accepted and lets not forget about the restocking fee per etrailer I will have to pay as well For what ultimately was their mistakes and lack of honesty that caused all off this.. I paid full price plus expedited shipping costs for complete suspension setup that once again(as it seems by other reviews) was missing all the hardware upon arrival..Then it took 3 more weeks to get that totaling 5 weeks when I paid for and was guaranteed by etrailer to have in 1 week..

Review from a similar Silent Ride in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


Seems like a great product and service was excellent. UPS lost one of the three parts and was a week long in delivering it, and then said that it was because it was packaged poorly from etrailer. I used a 4x6 steel rectangular tube spacer to get my trailer back up to the original height. Seemed pretty straight forward, but it would be nice if the system could be designed so the user doesn't have to cut the mounting brackets off the axle and re-attach the Timbren brackets.

Review from a similar Silent Ride in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


As far as etrailer, service was quick and delivery was also fast. As for the product itself, I would rate it a 1. Even after speaking to a sales rep at Timbren, the suspension has not performed as was hoped and assured that it would. (Although Timbren has attempted to make things right.)

As stated, this is no reflection on etrailer, and would use the company again if needed.

Review from a similar Silent Ride in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


This system is a 100 times better then the spring system that was on it new. We put about 5000 miles on our 5th wheel per year. It is a 2015 Columbus and we love it but the suspension was the typical junk under most RV’s. Springs that are as wide as the frame so the perch mounts stick out past the frame. Basically they are like what you would buy at [generic retail]. They sheared off at the frame and the axle cocked. Over a short amount of time the tire blew and wiped out the side of the RV. The suspension I bought from etrailer was great and fixed all the problems the original suspension had. It was a bit of a trick to figure out ride height of the new suspension. You have to add spacers under the original frame to achieve original ride height. Sounds hard but it is pretty easy.


Comments
The new suspension is working perfectly. 100 recommend. No springs for me.

Probably the best upgrade I will ever do to our Roof Top Tent trailer. Rides absolutely amazing. I’ll never run leaf springs again.

Review from a similar Silent Ride in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


I installed this on a 2018 wildcat 383mb 5th wheel which has a GVWR of 14,059# and with a weeks worth of stuff for a family of 3 I have 10,700# on the campers axels per CAT scale so this is a perfect fit for the application. Now the hard part was figuring out what the ride height (bottom of my frame to the center of the axels) would be since Timbren's documents only show the unloaded ride height at 6.125", with the stock leaf springs my ride height was 9.375” so that is a 3.25” difference but that doesn’t account for suspension sag. I called timbren they said the ride height at 14,000# would be 4” so basically the suspension would sag 2.125" so I guessed my ride height at 11,000# would be 5” or 1.125” of sag. Based on those numbers I would need to make up 4.5” of ride height so I put a 4”x4” 0.25”wall square tube between the frame and Timbren suspension. Well the Timbren sagged more then I expected, and my final ride height ended up being 8.25”, a full inch lower than factory. I have a lot of overhang behind the rear axel and would drag on occasion at the stock ride height so this inch lower is going to make it worse. I’m going to make a few trips and see how much more the suspension settles then I might go back and add a 2” spacer to raiser camper.

The install took me 2 8hr days with the first day being removing the stock leaf spring setup and prepping the axels/removing the leaf spring pads. The hardest and most time-consuming part was removing the spring hangers off the frame man they did not want those to come off. The instructions don’t tell you where to set the axel camber/arch so it set it to the same angle as the suspension arm when unloaded, 19deg which when loaded and on level ground turned out to be perfect. The instructions also tell you weld the axle to both sides of the axle seat well you can’t get to the inside axle seat since it’s so close the rubber spring.

Now as for the ride what a major difference I used to dread hitting bridge expansion joints now it’s no problem, the bucking has been drastically reduced. We would always have open doors and draws when got to a location now they all stay closed. Items in cabinets are still where we left them, cereal boxes are still upright.

Placed these on my 24’ center console trailer. There was an immediate improvement in ride quality. I make several long hauls each year and want suspension parts I can count on. I believe this will be my first suspension that is reliable!

Review from a similar Silent Ride in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


Installation was a bit more intensive than I anticipated. At the end of our first 6000mi trip, I lost a wheel and the weight of our 7500lb toy hauler was on 3 wheels for up to 60 mi without me even knowing. The suspension and remaining upgraded wheel/tire handled the weight, I doubt the stock leaf suspension would have done the job.

Review from a similar Silent Ride in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


I have had both leaf suspensions and torsion suspensions on pull behind campers. I decided to try these when I had to replace my torsion axles. The Timbrens are without a doubt the best suspension I have ever used. The trailer rides much smoother as it creates an independent suspension for each wheel. The rubber pad absorption design adds to the smoothness. The camper is also much more stable when towing and I don,t end up with stuff all over the floor of the camper from a rough ride. I am extremely satisfied and highly recommend this suspension system.

It all looks great, but I found other problems with the trailer so have not installed them yet.

Review from a similar Silent Ride in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


I used these to replace the leaf springs and equalizers on a 20’ gooseneck cattle trailer that I rebuilt. The ride is great and the usual rattling and clanging of the trailer going down the gravel road is gone. So far I am very happy with the ease of installation and the performance of the suspension. I guess only time will tell about the durability of the rubber components in the long run.


Comments
So far all is great! The highways around here are in horrible condition. My trailer has the straight high brush fenders so you can see the tires and axles in the side mirror as you drive. Those tires are jumping like crazy on the rough pavement, but the trailer body is so smooth the cows think theyre riding in a Cadillac!

Review from a similar Silent Ride in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


This is a very nice outfit for a dual axle conversion. The only problem I had is that the axle saddles and u-bolts either got lost or didn't ship out. Gave e-trailer a call and they answered right away and were very friendly and helpful. They sent me the parts that I needed and they arived in 2 days. As far as the suspension goes, they seem to be very well made and I can't wait to put these under my boat. Looks to be very little fabrication to change from single axle to this dual axle walking leg suspension. It will definitely be easier and cheaper than than dual leaf spring suspension, and should be a lot better.

Installation went well. Not yet used for a heavy load. Switched from leaf spring suspension and empty doesn't seem to bounce any less than prior to the switch. Moderate load does show some improvement.

We used this on an aluminum utility trailer that originally had a leaf spring setup. Easy to install, we just flipped the trailer upside down...
Turned a so-so trailer into an awesome one. Thanks!

In my honest opinion this is absolutely the only way to go to upgrade your suspensionI have installed the 10K and the 14 K models there’s less resistance while towing and the trailer tracks much better it is smoother the bumps are almost not noticeable highly recommend it
