Reduced axle sag with Timbren suspension enhancement

Just like the rear of your vehicle will sag under the weight of a fully loaded bed, the front of your vehicle will sag when under the burden of heavy equipment such as a snowplow. In this case, the front axle is handling not only the weight of the equipment, but also more of the vehicle's weight. Overall vehicle 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.


Install diagrams of Timbren hollow rubber springs

The Timbren system comes with custom-fit brackets that are bolted onto each frame rail above your front axle. Hollow rubber springs are bolted to the bottom of the bracket and hang down so that the bottom of each spring touches the axle. Because each spring is making constant contact with the axle, it is always working to cushion and support your factory suspension.


Animation 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're carrying off-center loads.

A snowplow mounted to the front of the truck will require extra suspension support for the front axle.

Timbren's Suspension Enhancement System will help raise the front end of your vehicle when you're using heavy equipment like a snowplow. This ensures that your headlight beams will be pointed in the right direction and tire wear will be reduced. If the plow is off-center or has an extension, the springs will automatically compensate for this as well.

An empty truck on a bumpy road without Timbren

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. More elasticity allows for a more comfortable ride because the rubber has more travel.

Installed rear Timbren suspension last year- very impressed with the performance. Ordered the front and received them the day they were supposed to be shipped (per estimated shipping time) 876925

Best investment for suspension so far!! Had wind, semi’s and large dips in road sway our 2015 Bounder all over the road. With the timbrens installed took care of almost all of that! Big dips, Bounce one time, done. Semi’s pass no issue, Wyoming winds cuts right through! 869068

Great jounce type rubber springs and cheaper than the "other brand". Easy install too. I had these on in about an hours time tops! They make the ride more stable and ends a lot of that wheel jump when hitting road cracks, pot holes, bridge seams, etc. Less wheel shack. I put these on the front of my F-53 chassis and Thor Ace Motor Home. Worked out well and does what it is intended to do. My. only wish was that this style of unit would fit the rear of my F-53. 808436

Reviewed with the vent covers I purchased. I would highly recommend adding these or other suspension products especially for Class A. I chose the Timbren because I could install them without taking the tires off and without drilling any additional holes in the chassis. 801483

The front and rear kits came yesterday and I installed them today in my pole barn while the winter weather blew out side. Will try them next month!

I would have given 5 stars, but it is difficult to get a socket on the frame/ to bracket mounting bolt. I would suggest a cutout/ scallop on the mounting bracket to facilitate installation. Now for the road test. 683011

2017 Ford F-53

I installed the front and rear Timbrens on my 2017 Georgetown GT5 class A. The installation was pretty easy, except for the tight areas getting the wrenches on the bolts. The front passenger side used the original bolt to install on my frame. Installation took about two hours to complete the front and back. It would be quicker if you use power tools, but I wasn't in any hurry. I've driven on two trips now with them, and they made a noticeable improvement on the rocking sideways back and forth. The motor home seems a lot more settled now with wind and traffic. 563687


Comments
Its been a year now owning the Timbrens on my RV. and they are holding up great and work great on stopping the rocking back and forth. I recommend them to anyone whos considering upgrading their suspension.

Review from a similar Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


this is the second set of Timbren springs I have purchased, the first set was on my Ford Raptor, they took all of the sag and sway out of pulling my boat. I have this set on my 2015 GMC Denali 2500HD, I pull a 42 ft. 5th wheel and the Timbren's take all of the sag and sway out, these are in my opinion the best product I have purchased for my truck. 683687

this is still an amazing product! works as good today as the day I installed it. I recommend this to all my friends.

Review from a similar Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


After a 3000 mile trip with a 42' fifth wheel on a 2016 Chevrolet single rear wheel short bed 3500HD, I will say they made a difference. They took some of the bounce and the side to side rocking out of the truck. I would definitely put them on my next truck as well. 667565


Comments
Still good. The right solution is a dually with heavier springs and more stability from 4 tires, but that is not in the budget.

Review from a similar Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


Installed this on my 2009 Caravan because when I had a hitch mount 4-bike platform rack hanging off the back and was loaded with camping gear and family, the rear suspension was terrible, it would bottom out, and my headlights pointed up so that everyone would flash their brights at me. New shocks helped, but did not solve the problem. This product did fix the problem and I am very happy. I was concerned about the feel when the van us unloaded, but this has not been an issue. I highly recommend this product. 796869

Review from a similar Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


I had made purchases from etrailer in the past and have always been satisfied with the service and products purchased. During this transaction I purchased Tembren bump stops for my 2019 Chevy Colorado. They dont affect the ride of my truck until I put it undet a load. Then they give me better handling of the truck and less weight taken off of my steering. It was quite an easy install, and they work great! I feel the price could have been a little better, however overall I am very satisfied compared to what it would have cost to install air shocks. Thanks etrailer, another satisfied customer! 665150


Comments
Since purchasing the bump stops from E Trailer I have been hauling a 5000 lb. Travel trailer for about a year. I am very pleased with the ride of the truck under a load. The Tembren bump stops improved things significantly. Thanks E Trailer! Another purchase made from you and a very satisfied customer.

My van is a 2000 GMC Safari. when pulling my 17 ft. boat it would sag pretty bad. after installing the Timbrens it sits level and isn't bottoming out anymore. Great product and great service from etrailer. The Timbrens went on very easily and the instructions were good. 122042


Comments
Van gave out about 2 months after installed them, didnt notice much difference except van road rougher. It was an older van and might have done better with new shocks.
Dan J - 03/25/2015

With this Timbren System installed you may notice a difference in the ride quality of the van when the Timbren springs are not activated. The benefits of Timbren suspension enhancement systems are designed to provide additional support when there is a load placed on them and on the vehicle suspension.

Review from a similar Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


I bought these as a replacement for "air bags" which I had two different sets, which failed over 10 years. i would say this product is helpful with pulling a trailer and lighter loads but from time to time I haul heavier loads and this product doesn't offer as much help/support as the air bags. This product is a little cheaper and if they don't weaken over time they will be a help. I have added additional leaf springs to two different pickups but then you end up with a stiffer ride full time. 421383

Very happy with my timbrens and quick shipping. Added these to a 2013 2500HD 4X4. Quick and simple to install. improved ride quality and takes the squat out when pulling a gooseneck trailer. Very happy and would recommend to anyone wanting to improve quality of ride height. 493335

    When comparing the ride quality between the Timbren # TFFF53B and SumoSpring # SSF-172-40-2 I recommend going with the SumoSprings. Although Timbren is a very solid product, the SumoSprings have been proven to have more of a forgiving support over the Timbrens. This is supported by great reviews and feedback from customers.

    The biggest difference between the two for your 2019 Thor ACE 30.2 motorhome, and the reason why I highly recommend the SumoSprings over the Timbren, is what each product is constructed from. The Timbrens are made from a strong, rigid rubber while the SumoSprings are made from microcellular urethane. This is important because it means the SumoSprings will compress more gently, while the Timbrens are known to give a much stiffer ride. The front axle and rear axle fits for your 2019 Thor...

Neither of these options will come into play unless the factory suspension gets compressed.
