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.

Video Transcript for Timbren Front and Rear Suspension Enhancement Systems Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the Timbren line of suspension enhancement systems. Any time that we add weight to our vehicle, it's going to put a lot of strain and stress on the suspension, especially if we're towing a heavy camper, trailer, or we have a heavy load in the back.Tends to have the back end squat down, which again, it's going to put that strain and stress on the rear suspension because not only are we asking it to hold up the weight of the vehicle, but everything else that we add on to it. Which that can arise a lot of different issues. The front end is going to be getting pulled off, which will misalign our headlights, and our tires won't have as much contact, so our steering and braking is going to be diminished.But tat;s where timbrens are going to come into play. They're going to provide us that extra support so that when we do have those heavy loads, the back end doesn't sag down quite as much, and it's not putting so much stress on the back end. By doing that, the front end's not going to rise up, which means our headlights will be in line and our tires will have the correct amount of contact and pressure, so our braking and steering isn't affected.

And they're going to do that all while making our ride more comfortable with that extra load.Our timbrens are going to provide us the support we need by replacing our factory jump stops and mounting in between the frame and the axle. Now, yours may look different, so you want to double check inaudible 00:01:20 fit guide for your specific application.Now, each one of our timbrens is going to feature a steel bracket. They're all going to have black, powder coat finish on them to resist that rust and corrosion or any other kind of chemicals that may be on the road. They're going to have a hollow, rubber ayon 00:01:36 spring that's going to take a lot of that pressure and strain off of the rear suspension.Whenever we do load our vehicle down, the space between our frame and our axle is going to get smaller. That's where our spring is going to make contact with the axle, and it's going to start compressing.

Now, they are progressively rated, so if we have a small load or a light load, it's going to have a little soft engagement. But the further it gets compressed, the harder and stiffer it becomes, giving us the support we need with those heavy loads.And since they are rubber, they're going to have a lot of give to them, which means they're going to give us the support we need. But at the same time, they're going to give us some more cushion and absorb some of the road shock as we drive. And since the rear ones here aren't in constant contact with our aXle, it is going to provide us the same ride quality when it's unloaded.Our timbrens are going to work independently from each other from side to side. That way, if we have an off center load, it will help compensate for that, but at the same time, if we take an evasive maneuver or a really sharp turn, this is going to help reduce that body roll and some of that sway feeling that we get going on when we have a lot of added weight.Our timbrens for the rear are going to be a good enhancement for any time you're going to be adding weight to the back of your vehicle, whether it be a heavy trailer, a large load in the back or any other situation where you're adding a lot of weight to the back of your vehicle.Now, timbrens on the front are going to be a little bit different.

They're going to provide us that load-leveling support and make sure the front end doesn't get pushed down too far. However, these typically are going to be in contact all the time, which means it's going to give us that support and help reduce on that body roll all the time, all while absorbing that road shock, giving us a smoother ride.Now, some situations where you'd want that extra support on the front of the vehicle to keep it from getting pushed down too much would be if you have a snow plow or winch, if you flat-tow your vehicle, or if you have any other heavy accessory on the front. This is going to make sure that front end stays where it should be, and again, making sure our tires, braking and steering acts how they should.When comparing the timbrens to other suspension enhancement options like airbags, these are going to be a lot easier to install because we're not going to have to worry about running lines, maintaining air pressure, putting in switches or compressors or any of that. Once these are installed, these are going to be completely maintenance free. However, airbags are going to provide us with a lot more adjustability, whereas our timbrens are not going to have that.That'll finish up your look at the timbrens suspension enhancement systems..

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


I am dealing with Timbren. The washer for mounting the rubber spring to the mounting plate clearance hole is too small for the bolt diameter. The washer is not something you can get out without damaging in my opinion. The bolt also will not thread completely into the mounting plate because of poor threads ( not tapped correctly). Galling of bolt if you try to tighten. Very poor QC or inspection at Timbren or wherever. Once again, working eith Timbren on this. Maybe you should check you kits at etrailer!! 704185


Comments

I pulled the kits we have in stock and they check out fine. The washer inside the spring had the same diameter as the spring for the bolt. Could you send in a photo of your kit?

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


I first put the Timbrens on the rear to help stop bouncing and porpoising on highways and bridge ends when towing. The rears have a gap and do not touch the springs until the truck is loaded, working great and keeping a smooth unloaded ride. The front Timbrens fit snugly and touch all the time. The ride is firm and a bit harsh with my unloaded truck having a snow plow spring option. When my trailer 30 ft trailer is hooked up, the front of the truck is slightly lighter. Towing with the Timbrens is nice and the bounce and rebound porpoising is very controlled. I would like the front Timbrens to be a little softer when the truck is unloaded, but I think these units are a nice add-on for better control, safety, and preventing damages. I had the fronts installed at the shop when rotating tires and a front end alignment. The rears installed easily. 691475

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


Working great. I had read reviews about them being too stiff whem you aren't pulling a trailer, but it seems like they softened up a bit after first putting them on. I felt a few hard jolts going over speed bumps and such the first few days, but now I don't notice them at all when I don't have a trailer attached. They are still improving the ride with a heavy trailer. I'd give 5 stars but my mechanic neighbor had to help me install them because there was something wrong with the bolts that came in the package. It was a year ago and I can't remember the details. Without him I think I could have returned them and gotten a fix and installed them by myself. It's a very simple install when all the parts are in good shape. 549083

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


TOTALLY AWESOME PRODUCT.....Though I wished I had them when we trailered the hot rod out to New Hampshire last month. We received this item late as it was on back order for far too long. I did get a chance though to put the levelers through their paces when using our 18' lo-boy to haul large limbs, branches and other brush to compost site. The truck did NOT flinch and inch downward as it did WITHOUT the levelers. I liked too that the installation was basically pretty easy. I highly suggest going this way and leaving the air bags for the big truckers. Don't have to fuss with filling or deflating bags or dealing with leaky bags. This is a presto zippo installation and you can play "immediately". 550307


Comments

I couldnt be more happier with this product. Truck is still remaining relatively level, even with the hot rod in the enclosed trailer. Hot rod weighs in at 2200 pounds and nary a between truck and trailer. As in my earlier review, I HIGHLY recommend this product over air bags...so much LESS hassle .

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

Product came securely packaged and complete and quick. Took about 45 mins to install. I bought this to try to reduce the 3 1/2 inch sag at the hitch of my Lexus GX460. It did that well. I now only sag 2 inches that I feel is acceptable. The trailer has about 484 lbs weight. The ride doesn't seem affected and towing bounce(porpoising) is gone. Thank you etrailer. 560925

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

I purchased a used pickup without any jounce bumpers. I ordered these to provide more support rather than going back with stock ones. I pull a 5th wheel and these keep the truck level with less bouncing around and bottoming out when towing. When I'm not towing they sit about an inch or inch and a half about the stops so they do not negatively impact the ride quality. They work as advertised and I'm pleased with them. 653123

Purchased for Lexus GX460. Solves rear sag problem when towing with medium to heavy trailers. I don’t notice any difference in the ride when not towing a trailer with the helper springs. Should really come standard with the vehicle I’m the first place in order to utilize the towing capacity. I would highly recommend this cheap fix. 468046

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

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.

I have installed and used the Timbrens on my 2015 F350 dually with my 5th wheel Keystone Fusion RV for a year now. i have to say that the Timrens are not only easy to install but make the ride of my truck excellent not only on the highway but back roads as well that includes very twisty turns. Timbrens keep my truck level and i don't have to ever worry about airbag air pressure. i have owned airbags before and never again will i ever buy or use them. When you don't have a load in the bed or your RV hooked up the Timbrens ride above then axles.. Best investment for towing period! 264475

I am impressed with the timkens. Got a 2009 GMC 2500 hd and Western 8.5' v plow. Nose dive was an understatement before. However I put a 2" leveling kit and installed the timkens at the same time. One of them made my truck ride horrible. Probably the leveling kit from the torsion bars being turned in. I do notice tho that empty going over a jarring bump you can feel the timkens hitting hard. But with a plow on the truck it is the way to go. After this winter I'm gonna take them off and put stok back on for the summer. It's one bolt to replace them install was a piece of cake. 592401

I installed these on my 2012 Ford F250 because I have two friends who have them on their trucks and they pull a travel trailer and a fifth wheel camper. I was impressed with the difference it made compared to my truck and camper Parked next to theirs'. I am mechanic and I see no reason why anyone would have trouble installing these them selves. Clean off the Nut and end of bolts before trying to loosen. Spray some WD-40 on the threads. Put on some gloves and use a 15mm wrench to loosen factory nut. Be sure to hold up on the factory bump stop because it has a line up pin that keeps it from turning as you loosen the nut. The driver side is a little more aggravating to get to because of wiring harness but there's plenty of room to use a wrench first then a 3/8" drive rachet and short extension with a good 6point 15mm standard depth socket will speed up removal. Then installing the new parts is a breeze. Just follow directions or etrailer videos on YouTube. Took longer to remove factory bump stomps than to install new ones. Maybe 45 mins total on original ones maybe. Then after preassembly of new ones, it took maybe 20 mins to install completely. Give yourself 1:30 hrs of time and enjoy your truck not sagging around town when loaded. 654107

2012 Ford F-250, no overload springs. Loaded 24,000 lbs on a 32' gooseneck. Pickup would squat too far. Installed Timbrem rear suspension enhancement and pickup runs almost level and rides great!! All I needed to handle the load. Great product!! Would recommend to anyone looking for overload springs. Installed in 30 minutes!! 165636

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


Having purchased a cargo trailer, I thought it might be wise to beef-up the rear suspension on my 2000 Tacoma. I found the Timbrens on etrailer, and it sounded like they might work well, so I purchased a set and installed them. According to the instructions, there should be about a 1/2" gap between the top of the springs, and contact with the bottom of the Timbren - unless you have a CAP on the truck! The gap pretty much evaporated because of the fiberglass Leer cap. So, I'm getting contact a lot of the time. Result is, my ride has become stiffer than I'm used to, but not so much that it bothers me. Like my wife said, " It's a truck! Hello!!" (OK, I'm satisfied with the product.) 110248

Keep in mind that the gap Timbren refers will diminish as the springs wear. Since the truck is a 2000, it probably has some miles on it and if it has hauled heavy loads in the bed or has pulled a trailer, then the leaf springs may just be worn.

A year later and 5,304 miles pulling the trailer, I think the Timbrens are a good investment. With a typical pull of 2,555 lbs of trailer and load, and approximately 300 lbs of tongue weight, Im finding the truck actually rides better than it does with no load. And, theres no maintenance whatsoever!

The installation was on a 2009 Silverado 2500 HD 4X4 and the product fit perfectly! Installing them was a snap! They really made a difference when towing my 5th wheel RV. 680684

It arrived in 3 days and only took one hour to install. This is my second set. Put the first set on a 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 & this set went on a 2016 Ford F-250 Super Duty Diesel....very satisfied, 498699

I run a salt spreader in the winter on a 3/4 ton truck. It weighs around 4500 pounds full. I wouldnt dare fill the salt hopper all the way up without these. 467638

I have a very heavy "Cattle Guard" on the front of my RAM 3500 and this combined with the heavy 4WD and diesel engine the extra support from the Timbren Front Suspension Enhancement System definitely keeps the front suspension from bottoming out. 644652

Super easy install on my 18 Ram 3500. Slide in camper made backend squat a little over 4 inches before and only about 1 1/2 after installing. Have not quite a 1/2inch between axle and rubber so maybe hits a little sooner than recommended but I got them to take the camper weight so it's all good 612379

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


Installed the Timbren suspension enhancement system on the front and back of my 03 Dodge 2500 diesel with stock suspension. Has been installed for one year of mixed use: towing up to 8000 lbs on rough roads (Alaska), plowing, and general use. I often carry a 150 gallon fuel tank or a 1200 lb camper in the bed. Overall, installation was a breeze. For the front, I simply pried out the old pieces and put the Timbren in their place. Needed to jack the front end up to create enough space and to properly seat the new pieces. The rear installation required a slight bit of wrenching but not very difficult. I really noticed a benefit to having the Timbren on the front. The diesel motor is heavy and the factory springs need all the help they can get. Way better ride in after the upgrade under all loads/road conditions. I would recommend adding the Timbren to the front of any diesel truck, or anybody who will be plowing with their truck. The rear suspension was improved while towing, the Timbren definitely soften the blow when you hit rough roads or frost heaves. Unfortunately, when unloaded, the timbren on the rear make the truck ride rougher and bumps even more violent. It seems like the unloaded bed really wants to spring back after hitting bumps. If you are always loaded heavy the Timbren is a good choice. If you run empty occasionally I would go for airbags or something that can be adapted to the load on the truck. I gave a 5 star review for the front suspension upgrade, if the review was for the rear only it would be 3 stars. 666745

Jack the truck up; simple to install, I used thread lock (red) for safety. The only problem I had was the lower control arm of my '12 Tacoma obstructed my the use a 8 mm hex wrench to tighten it past hand tight. 129760

I had trouble with my browser called and spoke with Karen. She took my order. Then turns out I had two orders of the same thing. Karen took the time to call my home and ask is I really wanted two of the same thing. Great company, great customer service. How many companies in today's world would have made the extra effort. This is the second pair of Timbren I have bought. I love them. Used them on a 2010 Silverado, and now on a 2014 Express Van. Not only help the 'bottoming out' effect, but great for stability during towing and when fully loaded. 146117


Comments

After a year I still like them for heavy loads. I have found the bottoming out when hitting a bump with no load painful and uncomfortable. I actually cut two coil off them to allow the normal suspension to work when having no load. They still work for heavy loads. They are not the panacea for suspensions, but they definitely work when you have a heavy load.

Ordered these (6,000 lb Kit) to cure getting too nose high when towing after installing a Bilstein 5100 Level Kit on my 2016 F150 SuperCrew 4x4 (front struts set on max 2.10" setting sitting nearly perfectly level). Tow a 29' overall length travel trailer (~5,500 lbs) and for work we use a 20'x8' enclosed trailer (~9,000 lbs when loaded). Use a WD hitch, but still get the nose up when pulling both. Install was easy. Read through the instructions and watched a video before they came in. Crawled underneath and installed in about 30 minutes after I received them. Didn't remove the spare or the heat shield like the video I watched showed. A lift would have made it easier of course, but can be done in the driveway if you like doing stuff yourself. Used the included spacer and have about a 1" gap, which falls in the advised .5" to 1.5" range from the instructions. I haven't gotten to use them with the work trailer, but I have pulled the travel trailer and they do exactly as advertised, cures the sag, and nose doesn't go up at all. May be slight nose up with the work trailer, but I wouldn't believe it will be like before. Driving while hooked up feels smoother, too, with less body roll/lean in turns. So, overall satisfied with the purchase. The only reason this is getting 4 stars is that, like others have stated, the parts that were painted left a lot to be desired. Very sloppy with some areas that were already flaking off and one part had a spot that was completely missed by paint. The piece that goes underneath the axle to secure the contact plate is not even painted, it's just raw metal. So, I'm curious about what that will look like after one salty winter here in MO. I may find some time before the winter hits and take everything off and do some painting myself, but for $215 you'd kind of think that wouldn't be something to worry about doing with a brand new part. 543563

After 1 year, I’m still very satisfied. Have towed many times with them and the truck stays right at level. This will be something I order for every truck I get in the future. Improves towing without the cost of airbags. I didn’t have to wait more than a few weeks for the rust to appear, though. Had to take everything off and apply a couple coats with some industrial grade Rust-o-leum paint and have been doing good so far. Frustrating to have to do that, but at least I know to do it every time in the future.

Second time I've ordered from Etrailer. Super happy AGAIN! Install wasn't bad. Went in tight. (Like they should???? ride is awesome. Truck holds strong at 3/4" lower with load. I love it. Package wasn't in sealed and box was busted up. But, rubber. So who cares???? 651388

Have not towed our fifth wheel with these installed yet which was the main reason for the purchase. Towed a dump trailer and the added stability was definitely noted. With my truck loaded as usual with several hundreds of pounds of gear (two tool boxes, wood dunnage for leveling camper, ladder, B&W Companion fifth wheel hitch/Turnover ball, floor jack, tire inflator, jumper cables, screw gun kit, two traffic cones, brooms, squeegee - you get the idea!) the Timbrens are in contact with the bumper bars on the axle setup. Was hoping that the springs would not be in contact during normal daily driving but the stiffening of the ride is more than tolerable. I did not install the additional spacers as I could tell it would just add more weight to the Timbrens when loaded for daily driving. I'm sure if my truck bed was truly empty I would be off of the Timbrens. As for the five star rating without using these for the primary purpose I must say that is all on etrailer. They were great to deal with, answered a question I had very well and the shipping was extremely fast. 421213

I installed these on my 2015 Navion motorhome. It was very easy and only took about an hour. They did more than I expected. The ride is much better and a small shimmy that could be felt in the steering wheel at about 65 is gone. I would recommend these for all MB motorhomes. 460088
