Reduced rear axle sag with Timbren suspension enhancement

Whether you're hauling heavy loads in your bed or cargo area or towing a trailer, you will often see the rear of your vehicle sag while the front end rises. In these cases, the rear axle is handling not only the weight of the cargo, but also more of the vehicle's weight. Because less weight is on the front axle, the front tires are making less contact with the road. Overall handling - traction, steering, and braking - is negatively affected. But the resistance from Timbren's Suspension Enhancement System works with your factory suspension to keep your vehicle level and improve your driving experience.


Diagram of the Timbren spring installed

The Timbren system comes with custom-fit brackets that are bolted onto each frame rail above your rear axle. Hollow rubber springs are bolted to the bottom of the bracket and hang down to where the bottom of the leaf spring sits, 1" above the axle. The inch of clearance allows the existing factory suspension to operate normally under light loads and standard terrain, ensuring the smooth, comfortable ride that you are used to.


Action of a standard Timbren rubber spring

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 increases resistance, stiffening the suspension and keeping your vehicle level.


Timbren suspension system works to prevent body roll

Each hollow rubber spring works independently to support the driver's-side or passenger's-side of your vehicle. 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 you are hauling off-center loads.


Trailer swaying as it is towed behind a truck

Because your vehicle handles better with the springs, less turbulence will be passed along to the trailer and this helps to keep the trailer in line. Your driving comfort is further enhanced if the trailer does begin to sway (from a gust of wind or a passing semi) because the movement from the trailer is not transferred to your vehicle. This also works to make the sway subside more quickly.


An empty truck on a bumpy road without Timbren SES

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 because the rubber springs work to prevent bottoming out on rough roads.


Timbren Suspension Enhancement Compared to the Competition

Timbren's Suspension Enhancement Systems are much easier to install than air springs - there are no air hoses to run, no compressors or gauges to hook up, and no manual adjustments to make. The rubber construction makes Timbren's springs more elastic than similar products constructed of microcellular urethane. And more elasticity allows for a more comfortable ride because the rubber has more travel.

1998 Dodge Ram Pickup

Installed on 98 Ram 3500 pickup. Haven't put a load on it yet, but it installed very easily and fits well. Driver's side spring brackets were a bit harder to install than the passenger side, but still overall easy.

One con was the powder coat finish was worn off in spots right after opening the box. Not sure if the packaging is to blame or what, but in general the packaging never seems to be that great on the etrailer products I've ordered (just brown packing paper).

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


The timbrens actually did what they were suppose to do. However, once I starter driving out west I notice the timbrens were riding on the axle which cause the speedometer to jump around depending on the road. I would recommend them if you are hauling or towing a camper or RV. I was going to contact etrailer about maybe removing a spacer for one set however the other set came as one unit. The bottom line is the Timbrens does stabilize your load for safe travels. I will be contacting etrailer soon to assist in correcting the problem...Road trip from Idaho,Colorado,Wyoming,and Utah were beautiful... Thank you etrailer

Worked great on our 2019 Honda Odyssey Elite to the East coast.Fully loaded with 4 people and a car top carrier,the Timbrens kept the van stable and level.
Sold the 2019 but took the Timbren system out and put them in our new 2022 Elite. Very easy to install, highly recommend.

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


I used this on my Isuzu tow truck. The blocks in and of themselves are fine, they support the weight. Here's the problem: They are pre-loaded, meaning that they always touch between the frame and the rear axle. As you load the vehicle this puts more pressure on the frame in this 5" area where the blocks are. The springs have not yet taken as much weight as they normally would. Now, all this upward pinpoint pressure bends the frame. This is what happened to me on my rollback tow truck. After many hours and now double plating the frame all is well again, but a tremendous amount of work. Yes, the blocks are fine, but the result of installing this product resulted in a bent frame. The vehicle was not overloaded and was within the GVWR.

They definitely support and did lift my 2014 toyota tundra up about 1.5 inches.
This application with my weight has trunk riding on the cushions all the time.
That has teavel and bounce issues that do make some driving situations interesting.
I may go ahead and replace with airbags but for now support things well!

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


I really like these Timbren bump stops. I think the best thing about them is the simplicity, both how they work and how easy the install was. I bought these when I added a dump insert (similar to a salt spreader) into my 2019 F-250. I have loaded this truck heavy before with dirt and the truck sagged tremendously and had a lot of body roll. To prevent this with the now added dump insert, I installed these. Super easy to install! Took maybe 30 min. It reduces body roll and seems to improve the ride depending on how loaded the truck is.

One unfortunate consequence to the install is that the Timbrens brought to light that I have a weak leaf spring on my passenger side, which was suspect previously.

Overall, I'm very pleased with this purchase and would buy again!

I think I will be very happy with the ride when I tow our fifth wheel, it definitely needed the extra support especially on rough roads.I chose not to use the spacers because I like the softer ride when the truck is unloaded.

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


Ok, the drivers side was very easy to install. Maybe 15 minutes. The passengers side was another story, the rear bolt was very difficult to get at and took a great deal of time and creativity to get the bolt tight do to no room to turn the wench.
That being said it did improved the ride a great deal with no load, I drive country roads that are very rough , it completely stoped the wheel hop and provide a much better ride.
I would recommend installing these I’m glad I did! I would give this 5 stars if it were not for the passenger installation.

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


Product is high quality, all parts fit well and I didn’t have to force anything. High strength thick steel, and the jounce bumpers are seriously heavy duty. I haven’t had a load on the truck (98 Ram 3500) since install a few days ago, so they haven’t touched the base plates yet.

One thing I’m concerned with is the jounce bumpers are touching and are right up against the lift blocks and U bolts. I’m unsure of the longevity these bumpers will have after a heavy load is on them and they are constantly rubbing on the hardware. Also, as the load gets heavier they expand outward as they flatten out so I’m also concerned with if that will push my lift blocks outward and mess with the suspension.

I’m prepping for a slide in camper and when I get it I will have to take a look and see what effects that weight has on the suspension, the bumpers, and ride quality.


Comments
I am not sure when I will be able to have a load on it to confirm, as I do not have a camper just yet. I am currently working on upgrading the suspension in preparation for one. Is there an alternative similar solution, other than airbags - as I dont want those, that can be run? With a similar weight capacity? Kind of interesting Timbren hasnt run into this issue before with the older Ram 3500s. Wonder if this is somehow unique to my truck? All the rear components are original OEM, so it seems kind of strange.
-- comment by: Jimmy - 01/05/2022
You mentioned that the jounce bumpers were touching up against the lift blocks without a load in the truck and I wondered if you could send a picture of the installation?
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 01/05/2022
I do have additional questions for you. Is the top picture showing how the springs look with a loaded weight? Have you already installed your slide in camper? I wanted to see if the top bracket were touching as well? The manufacturer is trying to determine if a smaller diameter spring would help or not
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 01/05/2022
Both pictures are right after installation with a completely unloaded bed. Since installation, I have not had weight in the bed, so I can not 100 say if the top brackets would touch the U bolts or leaf springs. But from looking at it just now, it appears the top bracket would just barely touch the U bolts with a loaded bed, and would definitely touch if there was side to side movement with a loaded bed like going over a speed bump, pot holes, or uneven terrain.
-- comment by: Jimmy - 01/05/2022
I did hear back from Timbren. Currently there is not a bracket that would be narrower that they can offer. When loaded if the brackets interfere with the smaller spring, then it may be advisable to return the kit.

Highly recommend for anyone towing. Leaf springs were flattened out prior to install. Swapped the bump stops out for Timbrens in a campground before making a 1000+ mile trip home. They work amazing leveled the truck out while towing and absorb the bad bumps.

I haven’t hooked up to the fifth wheel yet or else it might be a 5 star. Based on the 15 minute installation time and the price compared to air bags this appears to be a logical way to go. I will update this as I hook up and put a load on it.

This Rear Suspension Enhancement kit were so easy to install, I was almost sure I missed something.
They installed in less than an hour. I was able to place my floor jack under the ball mount to raise the rear end enough to remove the old mounts and simply install the new ones.
Hooked up my 28' rv to my Silverado 1500 and they worked as advertised. No front end sag and I feel safer towing it.
Customer service helped me find the right product I needed without dishing out a lot of cash!

While I have sold this vehicle since this review to my neighbor, she has told me she loves this product when she pulls her rv. I now have a 34 ton pick up and purchased a set for it. I am very satisfied with the Enhancers i purchased for it!

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


I don't know what I thought this was, but, it definitely was not that. In my mind, this is just a fancy spring stop that replaces the one supplied by the manufacturer. Because of the thickness, my truck bottomed out more and quicker than with the factory stops. I had in my head (from reading from others) that this would help the suspension softness. It did not.
I ended up putting airbags on the truck. It had weaker springs due to age (2005 model) and the stop would not help that. The airbags were a blessing. They eliminated the too-soft ride. Had I put the airbags on first, I doubt I would have ever put this product on. (Although we did find out that the factory stops were worn out and needed replacement.)
I can not, and will not, degrade this product as it is well made and it was exactly as it was advertised. It just was not the product that I needed. Make sure what you need BEFORE you buy.


Comments
The Timbren springs will be more robust and larger then the factory stops. This means when the truck is unloaded and the truck goes over bumps, the springs will hit the frame quicker which can make a rougher ride for some. Air bags are a good alternative if this would be bothersome.

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


I have a 2018 GMC Sierra 1500 pick up truck (elevation package) in which I added a 3.5 inch ROUGH COUNTRY KNUCKLE LIFT KIT with Front Struts. The rear distance between the bump stop's metal cup just under the frame and the the rear axle is 8.25 inches with an empty truck bed and a quarter tank of gas. I gave the professional this information on my truck and what I needed; they e mailed back the kit with only 1.5 additional spacers on each side of the truck, Ok. I still came up with 2.25 inch space with an empty truck bed on both sides. I feel More TIMBREN PRODUCTS WOULD be SOLD if websites carried information All together for the average people to buy at their finger tips. It would have been easier for me if the following were all grouped together for my truck :
TIMBREN Rear Suspension Enhancement System
TGMRCK15S (that has 3/8 bushing) which is actual about 4.5 inches not 5inches in
height.
FOR TRUCKS with LIFT KITS spacers are required with the same 3/8 bushings

1 inch spacer (that has 3/8 bushing) A25723-90AHOO
1/2 inch spacer (that has a 3/8 bushing) TA25722-90POO
I required an additional 1 inch spacer on both sides than I was e mailed. It would also be easier if I could buy the additional bolts grouped with my additional 2.5 spacing on both sides of my truck on the web site, than going to the hardware store. I would pay the additional cost. So all together for my 3.5 ROUGH COUNTRY LIFT, I required 2.5 inch spacers on both sides with the 4.5 height kit which = 7 inches . I haul my 4 wheeler in the bed and broke a level spring years ago. On other occasions I place fire wood in the truck bed. TIMBREN is the way to go, it will be there when I put weight in the bed of truck; be it a 4 wheeler or wood. Friends of mine have air bag systems that leak over time and are much more in price. You can not go wrong with TIMBREN. When installing, remove salt and sand near top of original bump stop bolt, apply PB blast wait 10 minutes use a breaker bar with easy removal. Go to the hardware store to get longer bolts. When installing have to jack up the back of the truck under the towing package to get space to use tools to add new TIMBREN PRODUCTS.

Awesome for hauling four wheeler in bed and for hauling load of fire wood in the bed, no broken leaf springs and no sag

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


Never mess with airbags again on your truck. These Timbren bump stops are the only way to go. Installation took a total of 10 minutes and they work amazing. No messing with airlines, filling or deflating air bags with complicated installation. I’m towing a 44ft trailer and these Timbren bumps stops are a must. Great product but a little pricey for what they are.


Comments
After a year of towing some kind of trailer every week, the bump stops are showing some wear from riding on the bump stop pad on the axle. That being said, they are still working as intended and as good as the day I installed them. After a lot of miles, the only draw back is driving around with no trailer. Normal driving the ride isn’t effected but when you hit a bump in the road you really feel it hit the bump stop. You loose a fair amount of rear suspension travel with these but I’m used to it now.

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


My last Tundra had Firestone air bags with separate air lines (also purchased from Etrailer). They worked great but I always had to adjust pressure for loaded vs unloaded and assure the pressures were even.

These are so much better. Stock smooth ride unloaded and I don't have to do a thing when I load the bed or add a trailer behind it. I towed a 24 foot 14K pound equipment trailer with two side by sides and two atv's on it from NE GA to northern TN and had no worries what so ever.
I would highly recommend them!

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


I just installed the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System on my 2019 Ford F-150 4x4. The install was pretty straight forward, but I will say that the written instructions were pretty vague. Reviewing the Video on the e-trailer site was helpful. Also the markings for Left and Right could be improved. The marking “L” was very small and baring readable and the “R” appeared to be under some scratch marks so it was not legible at all. I think this product will help considerably. I have attached photos. The clearance between the rubber spring and the bottom plate is approx 1”. I also previously installed the Equalizer weight distribution & 4 way anti sway system to tow my 30’ Travel Trailer. The Timbren is to prevent any slight squat may occur.

It will act as a shock absorber and then as a stabilizer as weight increases to reduce body roll and sag. It won't increase your Ram's weight capacities but it will provide better support.

  • Can B&W Gooseneck Trailer Hitch and Air Bags be Installed at the Same Time on a 1999 Dodge Ram
    As long as the air bag mounting brackets do not mount in the same place on the truck frame as the B&W gooseneck brackets then you can install air bags on a 1999 Dodge Ram. Firestone kit # F2071 would not work because it mounts on the outsides of the truck frame rails the same as the gooseneck brackets. Looking through the other air bag options for the truck all of them have upper brackets that would interfere. Another option is a Timbren set up # TDR1525H2. It can be used on a 1500 or...
