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.

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..

After reading all the great reviews about how great this company is and how this product will level my truck with a heavy load, I ordered. I installed the product and the ride was an unbearably jarring. I emailed customer service with my concerns and let them know that I thought it would be fair to contact them prior to writing a review to try to come up with a solution. Wayne called me back and as we discussed the issues, it came down to him identifying four things that I consider non-solutions. 1. I cannot return the product. 2. He let me know that if I had more weight in my truck the ride would probably be better. 3. I could sell them on Craigslist. 4. I could add a set of air-bags. Airbags? These were suppose to be better than airbags. What a waste of money. 400179

I purchased these to help with the squat on my F-150 when towing my 32--foot travel trailer. I need to tweak the setup on my WDH, but otherwise am very pleased. Without the trailer, you don't even know they're there. 558730

Ordered Sunday, received Friday. Love the service of etrailer and will continue to use them. Put the timbrens on my heavy 1/2T F150 and they went on like a charm. Used the spacer and got 1" of clearance, well within the requirements. This should take the sag out of towing my fifth wheel trailer. 525708

Item: TFR1502D: 2 wheel drive Ford F-150 I haven't used my truck to pull our camper yet ... but soon, weather permitting. The directions for installing this item on are terrible ... I had to make 3 calls to customer service on how to install and place the tabbed mounting bracket to the frame of my truck ... no one I talked to really knew. I see the picture as they are different, but wanted to be sure if I had done my install correctly. I recommend the video on U-Tube ... it has good information and the video will walk you thru the install. Please update the video on this product and include specifically how to assemble and place the brackets to the frame of your vehicle. Thank You 481346

I installed these on a 2014 F150 to cure the sag when attaching my 14' cargo trailer. They installed easily and after using them for a year I can say they've leveled things right out. I also can't detect any noticeable degrading of the ride when not towing. I'm very pleased. 461631

I was towing my 32 ft travel trailer using standard WdH and sway bar with my f150 and before installing Timbrens, my truck was all over the place forcing me to grip the wheel (white knuckle) and stress out. After installing Timbrens, the rear of the truck feels planted while towing and I can literally tow now with one finger where before, I would have to give my steering wheel the death grip. Added bonus is that I can carry heavier loads in my bed if needed without squat. I can also pull my 32ft Trailer to the dump at State parks without WdH (saves bit of time) while driving slowly. I love the daily drivability and Ecoboost power of my f150 and now it's a towing machine! I'm a happy Timbren customer, as I didn't want to trade for a 250 and now I don't have to. 417589

I purchased the Timbren rear kit for my 2010 F150. I occasionally haul two motorcycles and wanted to get rid of the sag. The install could not be any easier. My truck required the extra bushings that are included, this gave me the recommended space between the axle and the bushing. Perfect fit, no issues. Great service from etrailer, ordered on sunday and package arrived Wednesday using the free shipping option. 7744

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


Solid Product! Yeah it's a stiffer ride when loaded But that's the sacrifice made to have more control of the haul while underway. Definitely recommend to anyone wanting to stay more level with a heavy boat/trailer setup as in my case. Not that install is hard but removal of spare tire before install, may have helped with space if you don't have a lift. 511931

Product was easy to install, 1/2 hr taking my time. Used a open end wrench and floor jack. My 2018 F350 Super Duty Super Cab 4wd no longer plunges over bumps, it has lost all its rear end sway on turning, carries my load much smoother ( loaded all the time ). Even with the load I always carry, the vehicle sits 1” higher in the rear. Prior to the install I was constantly hitting the rubber stops on my factory overload springs. 520123

Excellent! I have since purchased another set from you for a 2019 F350 diesel. These things are just the ticket! The ride and handling is so much better!

Installed on my 2007 Ram 3500 because I wanted basic leveling & stability under the load of my 5th wheel. I didn't want a complicated air bag system. Summer trips in the mountains of MT & the Pacific NW. 3 months of snowbirding throughout southern AZ this winter. Very satisfied, so I just swapped them onto my new 2018 Ram 3500. I didn't let them go with my trade-in. Just what I need, no effect when empty - engaged when I need them. 628560

I had bought these timbrens and the weight safe hitch with the 8” drop from etrailer. I was quite please by both products. Installation of the timbrens was very easy, only took 30-40 minutes to change out bump stops in my garage.I hauled a Uhaul trailer with a Jeep over 300 miles, with no issues. The timbrens worked great, no issues with the rife. And I really like the weight safe hitch. I recommend checking out these two products from etrailer. Thanks etrailer. 642864

I've had the Timbrens installed for about a year now and can report that they have done exactly what I wanted from them. The install was pretty easy (did it in the driveway using my creeper). My F350 was squatting a bit from the 3000# pin weight and I wanted to reduce that. Unloaded I can't tell they are there unless I hit a pretty big bump and when we're hitched they eliminate most of the squat and the truck is now pretty level when towing. I was thinking about installing air bags but went this route since it was simple and cost less. It's a great product! I've read some complaints about a rough ride when unloaded and I think that's due to not getting the unloaded gap right during installation. Submitting an "Installed" pic. 639141

These do really well for supporting a full load or trailer attached. But if unloaded the will create whiplash if you go over a speed bump or anything that creates the axle to spring up and hit them. 611025

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


The product first arrived in a damaged box with one of the washers missing, but ETrailer did resupply that. The hardest part was finding a shop able (needs the right tools to depress coil springs) and willing (a potential liability issue messing with suspension) to replace it for a reasonable cost. Eventually a local tire shop agreed to. This was for a 2014 Honda Odyssey, especially for pulling a pop-up. Took two camping trips last summer, one before and one after installation, and I have been pleased with the added stiffness in the rear suspension. It made about 1 to 1.5 inch of difference in resting position when fully loaded and towing and has helped smooth out bumps and humps in the road - both when towing and not. 589641

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


Just finished installing Timbren's in the rear of my Ford E-450 motorhome. The installation was very easy. The hardest part was lifting up the motorhome so the rear tires were off the ground. I always install Timbren's on all my pickup trucks, and have always been extremely happy with them, so when I bought a motorhome, that was one of the first things I did. Because my motorhome came from the manufacturer with helper springs which increased the height or clearance, the Timbren's were not in constant contact, so I purchased and install a 1" spacer (part number A25723-90AH00). Now the Timbren's are in constant contact and will maintain the correct height and not sag under load. I love Timbrens! 643600

The Timbren suspension was delivered on time . The unit was installed using the instructions provided and took about 45 minutes for both sides of the rear axle. I have not put a load on the truck yet to see how it works.There is about 1" of clearance between the rubber timbren stops and the frame of the truck,so it hasn't affected the way the truck handles for now,I'll be able to tell more about it once I hitch my Travel Trailer up.The installation was done on a 2017 Nissan Frontier. 621664

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


This product seems as described in etrailer catalog and by salesperson. Very easy to install, both sides and clean up 30 minutes (actual install time was about 15-20 minutes). My truck has 100 gal fuel cell and tool box that is pretty full, so I generally have an extra 1200 lbs in bed of truck full time. Looking at truck it sits level instead of rear sitting up a little, not a big deal except headlights aim a little higher and when pulling trailer with skid steer or mini, truck sags an amount that looks overloaded. After installed truck bed height looks close to an unloaded truck. With full fuel cell the truck rests on the Timbren Suspension Enhancement System, I was pleasantly pleased with the ride and look of the truck. The only minor difference is when truck comes to complete stop, there is a slight "jiggle" in truck. Very minor but it is noticeable. I would definitely recommend and purchase again. I can't wait to see how system performs with loaded trailer hooked up. 594996

The installation took about a half hour on our 2006 Winnebago View. I did not need to remove the tires, just jacked it up enough to unload the suspension a bit. The upgrades have quieted down the front suspension both reducing hard suspension hits and body lean. The front of the View is definitely more settled. Pros: Simplicity, and ease of install. measurable difference in RV suspension performance. Cons: expensive for what they are. The long bolts used do not inspire confidence. 220089

Product seems to be high quality and the delivery was fairly quick. Extremely easy for me and my 12 year old son to complete in less than a half hour. Just put them on today so won't know how well they'll work until I put a load on the truck.

Etrailer shipped very fast! Awesome people to deal with. The install went just as fast! Probably 20 minutes. I used a farm jack on the trailer hitch to bring both rear wheels up enough to have room to work. I put jack stands under the hitch for safety. Didn’t need to remove the wheels and they weren’t off the ground. Removed the old stop and attached the new ones. Simple! Test drove (in the rain) with nothing in the bed and never felt it till I hit a speed bump. Felt a little bump. I’ll be taking my RV out in a week. Looking forward to seeing what it will do for that. This was put on a 2018 GMC 1500 with big tow package. 581466

Took longer to gather up the tools needed, than what it took to install them. Shipping was quick. 456850


Comments

After a year still going strong. I have pulled the 5th wheel about 4K miles with them and no problems.

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


I bought Timbrens to install on my 2015 Silverado 2500HD truck, which I use to haul our 5th wheel. I had a set of airbags on my old GMC and they worked well, however, they were a concern when it came to maintenance. I saw a review and recommendation for Timbrens and thought they were a great alternative to having airbags installed. I read the instructions and can see no problems with installing them myself - thereby not only saving in the cost over the airbags, but also not having to pay anyone to install the Timbrens. Everything I have read about them makes me feel very good. I don't see the truck lowering with the 5th wheel attached, but having the Timbrens installed will take away any worries with rough roads. 613453

  • Selecting Timbren Rear Axle Jounce Spring Kit for 2013 Ford F-150 Ecoboost
  • The Timbren rear axle jounce spring kits we have for your 2013 Ford F-150 Ecoboost are shown on the linked page. In your application I suggest the 6K-rated kit # TFR1502D if you have a 2WD truck. This will have plenty of capacity to level and stabilize the truck's rear suspension without being too stiff and creating a rough ride.

  • Rear End of 2011 Ford F-150 Still Sags Even with Weight Distribution
  • The problem that you are experiencing is a common issue with 1/2 ton trucks like your 2011 Ford F-150. The rear suspension on 1/2 ton trucks will still allow some sag even when using weight distribution. While making some adjustments to the set up of the weight distribution system might help ultimately you will likely need some rear helper springs to eliminate the sag. The helper springs don't have to be air bags. You could use Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System Item # TFR1504D...

  • Is it Possible to install Firestone Ride-Rite Air Bags on a 2014 Ford F-150 with 5th Wheel Hitch
  • The Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs # F2542 will fit your 2014 Ford F-150. These air springs will work with both 2 and 4 wheel drive 2014 stock height models with 5th wheel hitch brackets (Excludes SVT Raptor, FX2 and F-15 models after 2014). However, I would suggest a different and more cost effective approach. I would go with a Timbren Suspension System, which is highly rated among my coworkers. You will also have no worries about compatibility issues when you install them...

  • Do Air Lift AirCell Custom Helper Springs Have a Load Rating
  • There is no load rating attached to the Air Lift AirCell Custom Helper Springs Kit AL52218. The note in the linked instructions says that they will not alter the GVWR or payload of your 2013 Ford F-150, so as long as you keep the capacity under those weight limits the kit will provide your F-150 with support from heavy loads. In regards to your second question you would still need to use a weight distribution hitch; the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System # TFR1502D help level...

  • Can Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancements Be Used With Weight Distribution On 2008 Ford F-150
  • The use of rear suspension enhancement along with a weight distribution kit is not recommended. They will tend to work against one another. If sag on your 2008 Ford F-150 is caused by a load or a fifth wheel or gooseneck trailer then suspension enhancement is the way to go If your F-150 is a 2-wheel drive I recommend part # TFR1502D. This system helps provide additional support to give you a smooth, comfortable ride and will not affect the ride when your truck is empty. It will become...

  • Solution for Sway of 2016 Ford F150 At 65 mph
  • I'm assuming that this isn't happening when you're not towing, correct? When the trailer is hitched up, and the Equal-I-zer weight distribution system is used the trailer is locked into place behind the trailer, more or less forced to track along behind the truck. Ruts or undulations in the pavement can cause the rear truck axle to sway a bit, which causes the yaw you mentioned. Roadmaster offers a rear anti-sway bar, part # RM-1139-177 that will keep the rear truck axle perpendicular...

  • Rear Helper Springs for a 2015 Ford F-150 with B&W Gooseneck Hitch Installed
  • I do have a couple of solutions for you but the Firestone kit # F2582 will not fit because its mounting brackets will interfere with the B&W brackets on your 2015 Ford F-150. What will work for air bag kits will be # AL88284 for a 4x4 or # AL57268 for a 2-wheel drive model. I have included links to the instructions so you can see that the brackets will not interfere. You can also use a Timbren kit, # TFR1504D for a 4x4 or # TFR1502D for a 2x4. The benefit of these systems is that there...

  • Recommended Suspension Enhancement for 2016 Ford F-150 that's Rocking/Swaying when Driven Unloaded
  • I have a solution for you but most of the suspension enhancement systems, like Timbrens, are designed to help when carrying a heavy load and are not as effective when the truck is unloaded. The RAS Suspension Kit # RAS3611-B upgrades your vehicle's factory suspension for improved stability, handling, and control. The mechanically active system eliminates axle wrap and wheel hop. This comes fully assembled and is easy to install. Another option that is the SuperSprings # SSA28. This...

  • Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement Systems Vehicle Fit Comparison
  • These Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement Systems are basically the same except for the hardware and vehicle specific brackets that are included with each system. Both systems are compatible with Ford F-150 trucks, but part # TFR1502D is designed for 2 Wheel Drive Models only and fits years 2004 - 2016 while part # TFR1504E fits both 2 Wheel and 4 Wheel Drive Models and fits 2015 - 2016 Ford F-150 trucks specifically. I would go with # TFR1504E for your 2015 Ford F-150 since it is a fit...

  • 2015 Ford F-150 Sags at the Back When Coupled to Trailer with 550 Pounds Tongue Weight
  • Sag at the rear of a vehicle such as your 2015 Ford F-150 can happen from 1 of 2 ways. First, weight in the actual truck bed can cause sag. Second, the tongue weight from a coupled trailer can cause sag. The ways to deal with the sag are different. When sag is caused by a trailer the recommended solution is weight distribution, not helper springs. Weight distribution will more evenly distribution the force of the tongue weight to all of the axles on the tow vehicle and trailer so it...

  • Will the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Bags # F2525 Fit on a 2013 Ford F-150 With Reese 5th Wheel Hitch
  • I do have a rear suspension enhancement option for your 2013 Ford F-150, however, the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs, # F2525, are not compatible with most fifth wheel frame brackets that mount to the outboard side of the vehicles frame rail. Most fifth wheel brackets block the frame and it is not recommended to install the Ride-Rite kits on top of fifth wheel brackets. If you have a fifth wheel kit that uses the 4 individual universal L-brackets, then the Ride-Rite kit may...

  • Recommended Suspension Enhancement To Reduce Sag When Towing Trailer With 2012 Ford F-150
  • If you have sag at the back of your 2012 F-150 when towing a load that stays pretty consistent then the best way to help with that is by installing suspension enhancement like part # TFR1504D for a 4-wheel drive or part # TFR1502D if you have a 2-wheel drive truck. These are rubber springs that do not effect the ride of your truck when it is not under load but when towing will become more rigid to help add additional support. Air springs like part # F2525 are a better for your truck...

  • What is Recommended Distance between Timbren Spring and Axle
  • You will want to have the rubber spring of the Timbren part # TFR1502D sit close to the axle but not touching it when unloaded. There isn't an exact dimension for what will work best as people have different preferences and some vehicle suspensions move more in general. Timbren likes to recommend 1 inch between the axle and the Timbren when the truck is unloaded. We have found that this works the best.

  • Recommended Camper Tie Downs for 2013 Ford F150
  • According to my contact at CR Brophy, the # TDSF tie downs are not compatible with 2011 or newer trucks, but their # HSSF tie-downs would indeed be compatible with your truck, as long as it has a regular (not stepside) bed. Drop in (hard plastic) bed liners will need to be extensively trimmed but spray-on liners are not a problem. You will also need a hardware package, part # TDHP. If installing the camper causes the rear of the truck to squat, a suspension enhancement product like the...

  • Rear Suspension Enhancement System Recommendation for a 2011 Ford F-150 Crew Cab
  • Many people use suspension enhancement systems when towing trailers, including myself. Determining which type of suspension enhancement is best for you will depend on your needs and preferences. Since you mentioned towing a trailer, I would look into a jounce bumper replacement style system like the Timbren or Firestone Work-Rite systems. At this time, there are no SumoSprings options for your 2011 Ford F-150, but a system like the Timbren Springs, # TFR1504D (for 4WD) or # TFR1502D...

  • Methods of Improving Sway Control on 31 Foot Rockwood Camper towed Behind Ford F-150
  • The Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System you mentioned, # TFR1502D is primarily designed to suspend the load of cargo stored in the bed of your truck, and will not have much if any effect on trailer sway. First and foremost, if the trailer has insufficient tongue weight, it will be more susceptible to sway. The tongue weight of the trailer should be at least 10 percent of the weight of the trailer. If it is less, try moving some of the gear stowed in the trailer forward of the...

  • Installation of a Timbren Vehicle Suspension on a 2014 Ford F-150
  • Most likely there is a bolt holding the factory bump stop on your 2014 F-150. You simply raise your truck up off the ground and use a 13mm socket to remove the bolt. Take a look at the video I included to see the removal of the bump stop and installation of the suspension, even though it's on a 2010 F-150 and different Timbren suspension # TFR1504D. Once done, you will be ready to install the new Timbren rear suspension enhancement # TFR1502D you referenced. Ideally, the amount of space...

  • Gooseneck Hitch and Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for 2010 Ford F-150 5-1/2 ft Bed
  • For a gooseneck hitch setup for your 2010 Ford F-150 5-1/2 foot bed that does not require activating any levers in the truck bed the Draw Tite hitch part # 6300-4437 would be the hitch to get. The ball doesn't flip over though. It would just remove all together. The release handle is on top of the plate though. The Timbren systems mount on the bottom of the frame rail and will not interfere with fifth wheel frame brackets. For that you would need one of the following based on how your...

  • Will the Timbren Suspension for the Ford F150 Affect Unloaded Ride Height
  • When unloaded you will not see a height increase with the Timbren System # TFR1502D installed on your 2010 Ford F150. You should find that when loaded with either cargo in the bed of your truck or towing a trailer that the rear does not sag as much. Bottom line, when unloaded you will not see difference in ride quality or height with the # TFR1502D installed in your vehicle.

  • The Timbren helper springs are going to be an excellent choice and what I recommend for loads/cargo carried in the bed of the truck. For your 2013 Ford F-150 there are a few options depending on how the truck is configured. If it is a 4x4 with stock ride height (no factory or aftermarket lift) and not an SVT Raptor then use # TFR1504D. If it is 2-wheel drive, stock height, not a Raptor use # TFR1502D. If it was a 4x4 Raptor with stock height you would need # TFR1504R. And if it...

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for a 2013 Ford F-150 Towing 8500 lb Trailer
  • Actually for towing a trailer as heavy as yours I have a better solution than suspension enhancement. Instead you would want a weight distribution system. Not only will weight distribution help prevent rear suspension sag like the suspension enhancement, but it will also move part of the tongue weight of the trailer up to the front axle of the trailer which will help with braking and handling unlike suspension enhancement. The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base...

For a 5th wheel installation kit of any kind, the AirLift kit is less restrictive but still prevents installation of any 5th wheel installation kit that needs the same areas to install. The Reese Elite Series under-bed mount, # RP30064, also installs on the outside of the frame rails on the truck. You would need a suspension system that...

For your 2010 Ford F-150 you would want to go with the 6K system # TFR1502D that you referenced. It will work well with your horse trailer. Even though the trailer is more than the 6K capacity of the system, the tongue weight of the trailer that pulls the truck down is much less so the system will be very effective.

You can use SuperSprings Custom Suspension Stabilizer and Sway-Control Kit, # SSA8MTKT. Another option is to use a Timbren system, # TFR1502D, for a 2 wheel drive, or # TFR1504D, for 4 wheel drive. These springs install on the inboard side of the frame rails so they will not interfere with the hitch. Either the SuperSprings...

  • Recommended Suspensin Enhancement For 2016 Ford F-150 Towing A Trailer And Dirt Bikes In Bed
  • Since you said the rear of your F-150 sags when the dirt bikes are in the bed I recommend using a Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System, part # TFR1502D if you have a 2-wheel drive truck with stock height. This system does not affect the ride of your truck when you are not towing but as more weight is added helps to cushion the load and provide additional support. No drilling is required for installation and it has a capacity of 6,000-lbs. This will not increase the weight capacity...

  • Can Timbren Helper Springs be Installed on a 2007 Ford F-150 with a Slight Lift
  • Yes you can still use Timbren helper springs # TFR1502D on your lifted 2007 Ford F-150. The springs only attach at the top to the truck frame. There are 1 inch spacers included with the kit which you will likely need to use with the lift on your truck. Without the spacers the truck would have to sag more before the springs made contact with the axle.

For this reason I recommend a weight distribution hitch to correct your rear end sag when towing your camper, rather than a helper spring kit. Helper springs are better for supporting your stock suspension with cargo loads in the truck bed but for your application towing a travel trailer a weight distribution (WD) system is the way to go. You can use the linked page to see all WD systems that also...
