An example of sag on a truck's rear axle under a heavy load. The Timbren Suspension Enhancement System levels the vehicle.

Whether you're hauling heavy loads in the cargo area or by pulling a trailer, you will often see the rear sag while the front end rises. In these cases, the rear axle is handling not only the weight of the cargo, but more of the truck's weight, as well. 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 has a custom-fit bracket that will be bolted onto each frame rail above the rear axle. Hollow rubber springs are bolted to the bottom of the bracket and hang down to where the bottom of the spring sits, one inch 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.


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 the truck level.


Timbren suspension system works to prevent body roll

Each hollow rubber spring works independently to support the driver's 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.


An example of a trailers swaying

Because the 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 the truck. This also works to make the sway subside more quickly.


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.


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..

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

This product has performed exactly as advertised. We pull a fifth wheel rv with a hitch weight of 2300 pounds. After adding the Timbren Rear Suspension System to our Ford F-250, our truck sits perfectly level when hooked up. We feel that it was a much more cost effective way to keep our truck level as opposed to installing an air bag system. 344559


Comments

I still like the suspension product that I purchased from Timbren. It helps keep my vehicle level when we tow our 12,500 lbs fifth wheel RV with a hitch weight of about 2400 lbs, although when I purchased the product we were towing a lighter model. I have been thinking about ordering the heavier duty model you offer to help off set the increase in weight of our new trailer.

In my opinion these were a complete waste of money. I could discern no difference between them and the stock bumpers. Unfortunately it was a number of weeks after I installed them that I actually hauled our gooseneck horse trailer. My mistake for not immediately testing them after installation. I had the the Ride Rite system from Firestone on my previous Ford and was very pleased with that product. After reading reviews for the Timbrens I thought I could save some money by going that route. Big mistake on my part, I would never recommend this product instead I would steer anyone needing trailering suspension parts to buy the Ride Rite system. When finances allow I will be removing the Timbrens, throwing them in a dumpster and purchasing the air bag system. Overall I have been very pleased with Etrailer and will order from them in the future. 518512

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

All components seem to be good quality. I installed the kit in a little over 1 hour. Have to admit, about 20 minutes of that was spent getting the factory bump stops out. Instructions (diagram) were not as helpful as they could have been. Even watched the install video, still could have used a little more info. Haven't hooked up the 5th wheel yet. Let you know how the SES works after next week. 502333

I installed these on my 2016 F250 4X4 and the installation process was quite simple. I did not experience any difficulty removing the factory bump stops that a few others had experienced. After the installation and with my 8500 lb. 5th wheel attached to the truck, I noticed a change in measured rear ride height of only 3/8 inch. My trailer is not a heavy 5th wheel and my truck already had the heaviest leaf springs Ford makes (upgraded camper package option), so this may be why I did not experience more of a ride height change over the 3/8". All this being said, I am still happy with the ride with the Timbrens. The small change in ride height was enough and I no longer receive oncoming traffic night time headlight flashes wanting me to dim my headlights. 445347


Comments

Only had the use of the Timbrens for 6 months as I traded the truck in for a new one. The Timbrens were great while I used them. The only regret is that the new truck wont accept the Timbrens I had on the previous truck New and different frame.

Here are some pics. I installed the timbren could in about 20 minutes and put them to work the very next day pulling my LE3505 Weekend Warrior Fifth wheel. My 2012 F250 power strike was sagging horribly before purchasing these coils. The coils make the truck perform like a one ton & rides wonderful!

I ordered the Timbren Suspension Enhancement Kit on Monday and received it on Wednesday with the standard shipping. (Free on orders over $150.00). This is the third order from etrailer.com and every order has been expedited quickly and received before date quoted. All my orders have been correct and good quality. I installed the Aeon Rubber springs on my 2013 F-250 4x4 Diesel in about 20 minutes just like the video showed. With my truck bed loaded with supplies and bumper hitch trailer hooked up, my truck bed is just a hair below level; before it squatted a couple of inches. The road test will be tomorrow. 97375

The Timbren rubber springs are a great addition to the truck 2013 Super Duty Lariat Crew Cab 172" 4x4. The truck has the 20" wheel option which requires the factory to place a 2" leveling block up front. That makes the truck level of course, taking away the rake, however in doing so makes it look like it's squatting when loaded. Before installing the Timbren springs I loaded the truck with a pallet of pellets and the wheel well sat at 38 5/16" from the ground. After the installation the same load was placed in the bed and the wheel well measured 39 9/16" from the ground. The Timbren springs saved over an inch of squatting meaning more weight on the front for steering and breaking. The ride improved from the motion of the ocean leaf spring ride while pulling our travel trailer to a more smooth but firm at the same time feel, a better ride than empty which does not engage the Timbren springs. This product is the fraction of the price of air bags and far less complicated/ less parts and things to go wrong. One of the original bump stops gave me a hard way but wasn't too bad. I installed the Timbren springs 19 March 2016. 373655

I read the recommendation to another buyer and decided to try this product on my 2012 Ford F250 Superduty. I needed help for my 25' goose neck trailer. EASY to install. Worked perfectly with 15K of hay + 6K of trailer weight. The rear of the truck barely set down on the factory overload springs. Empty ride does not seem to be affected as the Timbren pads do not contact the overload stops. Thanks for a perfect solution without great cost and installation hassle! 62416

After one year the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System has performed as advertised. My 2016 F-250 does NOT squat with the fifth wheel trailer attached and the ride quality with trailer attached has also improved. Springs arrived quickly and took about 30-40 minutes to install. Excellent Product for towing!!! 449153

My order of several items arrived remarkably quick. I was amazed. OK, I read all the reviews of an hour for installing the Timbrens. I will have to call fooey on that unless it was a brand new vehicle with no dirt or rust on old bolts and you had a lift to raise truck on and you were a very healthy individual. My case was none of the above except for having plenty of tools to get the job done. My truck is only four years old and 20,000 miles and it took me all afternoon and I had watched the video. I put solvent on old nuts and still had to fight the nut for complete removal. Do the right one first, the hard one, and the left will seem easy. But, this AM when I hitched onto my 900 lb tongue weight, 1000 lb travel trailer and pulled to my destination, it was all worth it. No sagging rear end, rode good, rolled good and just generally a better feeling. With my sad state of health, I just shouldn't have tackled the job. etrailer did their normal perfect job and I appreciate them. 683103

Good value. The installation was straightforward and directions though sparse were sufficient for a 15 minute job. Make sure to spray old parts with Kroil or some sort of lubricant before removal. Unloaded truck now sits with 1/2” of space for normal suspension feel. Bought this to help with towing car hauler. Have not done that yet. 595451

Great at preventing the rear end from sagging with the trailer on, the truck stays level. The ride with the trailer on is better, however with no load the truck rides rougher than it did before I installed the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System. Since I drive more miles unloaded I wonder if air bags would have been a better solution for me. The Timbren system works fine and I have no problem with it functionality as it works to level the truck and makes it safer to haul heavy loads. 541048

We just took our first trp (towing) with the "Timbrens", today. Our Travel Trailer is about 8,000 lbs so I'm sure that they engaged fully. They have smoothed out the ride considerably and there is a definite lowering of the front end of the truck. I noticed that when just my wife and I ride in the truck, there is no noticeable difference; as they are not engaged. Add 2 more people in the back and now the ride gets a whole lot stiffer, as they probably engage even with this "little" extra weight. It appears that the real gain is when I add a full load of the trailer, extra fuel and other things packed into the bed of the truck. I believe that we made the right decision having these put in, in place of the OEM rubbers. It was a good decision. I recommend them highly if you're going to tow something heavy. 523578

This product served me well. The inch or two of extra height is just what was needed for leveling out the travel trailer I was pulling. Although I no longer own that rig any more I would recommend them for any minor lifting to obtain a level pull. 508974

Ordered the Timbren SES to stop sagging rear end in my Superduty when pulling my 33ft bumperpull toy-hauler. Simple and straightforward install, and amazingly simple yet effective product. Basically zero maintenance, and performs as well as airbags would for my application. Impressed with the product. Also impressed with the responsiveness of etrailer.com. I received update emails in regards to shipping, including one that my order was delivered. Top notch customer service.

This is my first purchase from etrailer, and was overall a very good experience. The only factor that lowered the rating from excellent was the fact that the product didn't ship for two days after purchase.

Removal of the original Ford product was extremely difficult . I resorted to a 6" grinder with a cutoff wheel and cut the bolts. Otherwise installation was simple. Performance is yet to be determined when I haul my 5th wheel.. 367995

Ask the Experts about this Timbren Vehicle Suspension

Do you have a question about this Vehicle Suspension?


  • Which are Better for a 2011 Ford F-250, Timbrens or AirLift Airbags?
  • Adding suspension enhancements to a vehicle is never really a bad idea especially since you are using it to tow a heavy 5th wheel trailer. Depending on which option you choose; suspension enhancements will reduce sag, improve ride quality, and extend the life of your existing suspension components. For your 2011 Ford F-250, both the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System part # TFR250SDG and the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs part # AL57396 will be good choices for you....

  • Dimensions of Timbren Rear Suspension Jounce Spring TFR250SDG for 2011 Ford F-250
  • On Timbren rear axle jounce spring kit # TFR250SDG the brackets are 3-inches tall and the spring itself is 4-1/2-inches tall. These offer no-drill installation in your 2011 F-250 2WD gasser as shown in the linked video.

  • Bouncy Ride from the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System on a 2012 Ford F-250
  • I spoke to my contact at Timbren about the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System part # TFR250SDG for your 2012 Ford F-250 and they informed me that the upper metal bracket cannot be removed. Therefore, the bump stop cannot be directly attached to the frame without this bracket. I have two options for you. You can use a shorter bump stop that will reduce the occurrence of the bump stops engaging. For this you would want to use the Replacement Rubber Spring for Timbren Rear Susp...

  • Rear Axle Air Bag Suspension Kit and Compressor for 2016 Ford F-250 Super Duty
  • Some heavy-duty pickups with extra-sturdy suspensions can have a pretty stiff ride when they have no trailer tongue weight or cargo weight on the rear suspension. Timbren kits like # TFR250SDG are designed specifically for well-loaded conditions, meaning when you have substantial trailer tongue weight or heavy cargo in the bed. These rubber jounce springs only engage the axle when the truck is under a load, which pushes down on the suspension so that the spring and axle make contact....

  • Does Timbren Kit TFR250SDG Fit 2WD and 4WD 2016 Ford F-250
  • Yes, the correct Timbren kit for your 2016 Ford F-250 4 wheel drive is the part # TFR250SDG that you referenced. We have some of the fits separated by 4WD or 2WD since some of them only fit one or the other, but the Timbren kit fits both styles.

  • Installation of the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System on a 2015 Ford F-250 Super Duty
  • The Timbren Suspension Enhancement System, # TFR250SDG, is designed to replace the bump stop on the frame of the 2015 Ford F-250 Super Duty. Once installed the spring will not rest on the axle. The 6-1/2 inch measurement is correct, but you will need a spacer of about 1 inch to compensate for the peg not installed. Timbren 1 Inch Spacer, # A25723-90AH00, will fit in between the spring and the bracket when installing. A new mounting bolt will be needed to mount both the spring and spacer...

  • Timbren Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for a 2012 Ford F-250 Super Duty
  • We carry the two different Timbren kits for your 2012 Ford F-250 Super Duty the part # TFR250SDG which is the lighter duty kit and the part # TFRTT350F which is the heavier duty kit. The lighter duty kit will provide 8,600 lbs of support and the heavier duty kit will provide 12,000 lbs of support. If you plan on maxing out your vehicle suspension then I would go with the heavier duty kit. If you aren't planning on using every last bit of the capacity then the lighter duty one will...

  • Comparing Timbren Helper Springs for a 2011 Ford F-250 and F-350
  • The springs are different between Timbren helper spring kits # TFR250SDG and # TFR350SDF. The F-250 version uses a spring that is 4-1/2 inches tall. The F-350 version uses a spring that is 5-3/16 inches tall. Both systems are rated for 8,600 pounds. You could use the F-250 version and then add 2 spacers, # TA25722-90P00, to get it closer to the taller spring height found on the F-350 kit.

  • Timbren Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for 2016 Ford F-250 Towing Fifth Wheel
  • I would recommend the Timbren part # TFR250SDG which has the 8,600 lb capacity over the part # TFRTT350F as this kit is designed for severe duty vehicles like tow trucks. The ride quality would be rather harsh. I attached an install video for the # TFR250SDG for you to check out as well. This kit will provide you the support you need without being overly harsh.

  • One Inch Spacer for Timbren Rear Helper Springs on a 2015 Ford F-250
  • The spring bars should be rated appropriately for the trailer tongue weight so I do not recommend going to different bars unless the capacity is required. The better option is to go with the Timbren spacer # A25723-90AH00 like you said. The spacer is 1 inch tall and they are sold in quantities of 1. There is also a 1/2 inch spacer # TA25722-90P00.

  • Will Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs Fit a 2012 Ford F-250 4x4 with 5th Wheel Hitch
  • The Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs, # AL57396, install on the insides of the frame rails on the truck. I looked up the instructions for the SuperRail kit 4426 and it looks like the brackets install on the outside of the frame rail so it is possible that these 2 system will work together. You will need to compare the instructions for the Air Lift kit which I have linked for you with the current situation on your truck to determine fit. With the air bags inflated properly...

  • Recommended Jounce Springs For 2013 Ford F-250 SRW 2 Wheel Drive
  • For your 2013 Ford F-250 Super Duty, I recommned the SumoSprings Solo Custom Helper Springs - Rear Axle, # SSR-114-54. These jounce spring replace your factory jounce which is there to basically protect your truck from completely bottoming out. The replacement jounces will engage the jounces when under load and the jounce springs are made to compress progressively for lighter loads and then heavier loads by as much as 80 percent. They engage independently to keep your vehicle level even...

  • Rear Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for a 2012 Ford F-250 6.7L Diesel
  • We have many rear suspension enhancement options for your 2012 Ford F-250 Super Duty, but to determine which kit will work best, we will want to take a look at the frame brackets for your fifth wheel hitch. On Ford Super Duty trucks, there is a hole in the frame rail just above the rear axle (see photo). If that hole is exposed, then I recommend installing the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs, # F2597. Firestone is an industry leader in the air bag market and this kit was designed...

  • How to Reduce Sag on a 2012 Ford F-250 Super Duty with Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer
  • The best way to reduce the sag on your 2012 Ford F-250 when towing your fifth wheel trailer is to add a rear suspension enhancement system. The two most common types of rear suspension enhancement systems are air bag systems and rubber spring systems. The rubber spring systems like the SumoSprings and the Timbren Springs, # TFR250SDG, are typically more economical than an air bag kit like the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Springs, # F2550. The Timbren springs and the Ride-Rite kit that I mentioned...

  • Will Timbren Suspension System Help Smooth Ride For 2013 Ford F-250 Hauling A 5th Wheel Trailer
  • For your 2013 Ford F-250, the Timbren Rear Suspension System, part # TFR250SDG, should work just fine. These install in place of the factory installed bump stops so they should not interfere with the fifth wheel installation at all. These are designed to provide additional support as needed when carrying light loads, and become more rigid as more weight is added. One of my co-workers has these installed and said that when traveling over very rough roads, these will cause the ride to be...

  • Will Using Timbren Helper Springs Help to Reduce Trailer Sway
  • If your trailer is a bumper pull and not a 5th wheel or gooseneck trailer then the best way to combat trailer sway and rear end sag is to use a weight distribution system. Timbren springs on your 2013 Ford F-250 will help reduce the sag and will help with side to side body roll of the truck but will not do as much for trailer sway as a weight distribution system with built-in sway control. If you are not currently using a weight distribution system I recommend the Reese Strait-Line #...

  • Do Timbren Suspension Enhancement Springs Affect Unloaded Ride Quality
  • We have found that it varies a little bit between vehicles. For some vehicles the unloaded ride quality is totally unaffected with the Timbrens. Typically this is on higher capacity vehicles where the suspension is already pretty stiff and doesn't move much when unloaded. On lighter duty vehicles where the suspension moves quite a bit some people have reported an increase in harshness from the Timbrens. For your 2012 Ford F-250 you probably wouldn't feel them.

  • Recommended Sockets Needed and Timbren Springs for 2011 Ford F-250
  • The factory nut size on your 2011 Ford F-250 has a 15 mm nut to remove your factory bump stop. I've attached a video of the uninstall and installation of the correct Timbren springs to assist. The Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System # TFR350SDF you referenced is only a fit for the F-350 model. You will instead want # TFR250SDG for your F-250 which will have a bolt head that is 9/16 inch. I confirmed this with the manufacturer for you.

  • Available Types of Suspension Enhancement Kits for 2016 Ford F-250 Super Duty

The best one for you will depend on your specific needs and budget. Jounce springs like the Timbren kit # TFR250SDG are relatively cost-effective, simple to install (no drilling), maintenance-free and they provide independent progressive...

  • Rear Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for a 2012 Ford F-250 4x4 Crew Cab Diesel
  • The Timbren suspension enhancement, # TFR250SDG, that you have referenced is my first choice for your truck. The Timbren springs are designed to do exactly what you need plus they will reduce side to side body roll, absorb road shock, and will not affect the empty ride of the vehicle. When you have a load in the bed, like your 5th wheel trailer, the bed will drop and what the Timbren springs do is take of the gap between the axle and frame more than the factory bump stops. This is what...

  • Rear Suspension Enhancement for a Lifted 2014 Ford F-250 with B&W Gooseneck Hitch
  • I do have a similar rear suspension enhancement option for you but the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs part # F2597 are not compatible with the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch part # BWGNRK1111 on your 2014 Ford F-250 as the gooseneck hitches frame brackets block the bolt hole needed to attach the upper airbag brackets. Unfortunately, none of the airbag kits we have for your vehicle will work with lifted applications. On the newer Ford F-150's and F-250's, there...

  • Recommended Timbrens for a 2016 Ford F-250
  • Yes, the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System part # TFR250SDG is correct for your 2016 Ford F-250 and will do an excellent job of helping to eliminate the rear end sag. This system is very popular are works really well in a multitude of different applications such as towing a heavy 5th wheel trailer. They are also very easy to install as you can see in the attached video which cuts down on cost.

  • Any suspension enhancement, like the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System # TFR250SDG which fit your 2016 Ford F-250, are only meant to supplement a suspension system that is in good working order. If, by adding the slide-in overhead truck camper, you are exceeding the max capacity for your F-250 then the Timbren system will not be the solution. You will either need to get a different truck or a smaller camper. If, however, you are not exceeding the weight capacity for your F-250...

  • Recommended Suspension Enhancement for 2013 Ford F250 with Service Body
  • We have a Timbren Aeon Spring system that is specifically designed for service-body truck and has the high capacity necessary for such a vehicle, part # TFRTT350F. The springs will add extra support to your rear suspension, and will become progressively stiffer as more weight is added. A weight distribution system would work best for combating the squat you experience when towing, but the Timbren system will help somewhat. Since you tow infrequently and for short distances, you can probably...

  • Recommended Suspension Enhancement for 2011 Ford F250 Towing 14K 5th Wheel
  • If in addition to towing a fifth wheel, you also regularly haul loads of varying weights in your truck bed, an air bag system like the Firestone Ride-Rite # F2550 would be a good choice, because you can vary the air pressure according to the load being applied to the truck bed. If you will be primarily towing with the truck, and therefore the amount of load applied to the bed (in this case, the pin weight of the fifth wheel) will not vary much, the Timbren # FR250SDG system you mentioned...

  • Which Timbren Springs Should I Use For A 2016 Ford F-250 Super Cab With 8,000 lb Jayco 5th Wheel
  • For your 2016 Ford F-250 Super Duty, the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System that is the best fit for your application is the # TFR250SDG. It has a 8,600 lb capacity that will suit your needs well. The Timbren springs compress as needed for support, and the heavier weight capacity the stiffer the spring. With these style of springs you don't want to over-do the capacity because it will give you a more rigid ride for your truck. When they aren't engaged with a loaded weight, you...

  • What Timbren Rear Axle Suspension Kit Best for 2013 Ford F-350 DRW Pulling 5th Wheel Trailer
  • Rubber jounce springs such as the Timbren # TFR250SDG that you referenced offer several advantages over air springs. Jounce springs generally cost less, they are easier to install and they require no maintenance or periodic adjustment. Also, since jounce springs do not engage the axle unless the vehicle is under load normal everyday ride quality will be unaffected by their installation, but when under load they will provide progressive resistance as the load increases.

  • Timbren Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for a 2015 Ford F-250 Towing Fifth Wheel
  • Timbrens would be a great option for you. These will provide you with suspension support when you need it and won't affect ride quality when you aren't towing. The kit you will want is the part # TFR250SDG which is the lighter duty of the two sets available for your truck. The higher rated part # TFRTT350F has a much stiffer rubber spring as it is designed for severe service vehicles only. I attached an install video for you to check out as well.

  • Will Timbren or Firestone Ride Rites Work Better on a 2013 Ford F-250 Carrying Camper and Trailer
  • When choosing between the Timbren # TFR250SDG and Ride-Rite # F2550 rear suspension system for your 2013 Ford F-250, I recommend using the Timbren for a couple of reasons. The main reason that I would choose the Timbrens over the Ride-Rite is because you have a camper that weighs approximately 2200 lbs and the Ride-Rites handle between 3200 and 5000 lbs. The Timbrens activate whenever a load is encountered and stabilize that load accordingly. The Timbrens have a 6,000 lb weight...

  • Lubricant to Aid Factory Bump Stop Removal on 2013 Ford F-250
  • You might try applying some spray-on lubricant like WD-40, PB Blaster or UltraLube Biobased Spray Lubricant # L10444 to the bolt that secures your factory bump stops. This may require repeated applications and some time for the solvent/lubricant mixture to work its way into the threads. Otherwise you might need another set of hands to hold the rubber stop while you apply your wrench or socket.
