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.

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!

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!!!

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.

It was a bear getting the old bump stop off, but a breeze putting the new one on. With my truck (F250 Super Duty) I didn’t have to raise it up to let the tires hang...super easy! Now I have put a load on it to see how well it works. Since I haven’t tested it yet, I’ll give it a four.

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.

Best load enhancing ever!!! Any work that was involved in installation has paid off big time. I would absolutely do it again, but would do it before my threads had gotten dirty.

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.

I have had zero problems with the Timbrens on my truck. I have pulled our camper and several tag along trailers hauling equipment and parts. They do exactly what they are supposed to. Saves on sag by over an inch. No complaints here.

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.

They perform as expected. I tow a 13000# 5er with a Ford F-250 and was sagging a little more then 3 inches when hitched Installed the Timbrens (easy 30 Minutes or so) and reduced sag to 1.5 inches. My truck was about 2 inches below level, now the truck sits normal,l lights are adjusted right, truck doesn't bounce as much and side to side movement is controlled. I often leave.my hitch installed and there is only about a half inch clearance under the Timbrens but the truck rides pretty normal with only slight change in feel going over square bumps. I have the 2/1 "soft ride" springs and now it feels a little more truck like but only occasionally, mostly it still feels like an executive or soccer mom truck. I have had airbags which I would prefer if carrying a in bed camper to help with the top heavy feel. But when just supporting the hitch weight these are perfect, easy, cheap, and install and forget.

Installed the Timbren stops as instructed. Total time was about 30 minutes. The installation would have been half that but one stock stop was tough to remove due to rust. I'm very pleased with the looks of the installation, quality of the product and the service from etrailer. I'll report back next week after I hitch up to my 5th wheel but I do expect everything to be good.

Someone told me about this system after 4 yrs of pulling my 7,000lb., 32' tag-a-long without it. Got rid of the T.A.L. and went to a 13,000 5th wheel (31'). What a difference. No squat, no nothing! Made a difference on my landscape and boat trailers a well. Upgraded shocks and steering stabilizer recently to Bilsteins. What a combination. Rides better than a new truck.

Bought these for my 2015 F-250 that I haul a fifth wheel trailer with. The only problem with the installation was removing the original ones. Not enough room to use an impact gun, and the harnesses on the drivers side made it difficult to get the correct length socket into place. Once the old ones were off, installation took between 5-10 minutes per side. Have not hooked up fifth wheel yet so I can't say for sure whether the "squatting" problem is taken care of, but I can say there is much less clearance with these than with the originals.

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.


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.

Installed these to the rear of a 2016 Ford F250. Great improvement over the factory bump stops. Helps greatly when towing a 5th wheel. Minimal truck sag and the ride when towing is a huge improvement. I don't notice much change in ride when just driving the truck (which is good). Easy install.

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.


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.

Excellent quick shipping. The install on my 2013 F-250 was very straightforward and quite easy. Product seems very well made. Just as mentioned, they sit about 3/4 inch from making contact while the truck is unloaded, so does not affect the empty ride. I have not towed with them yet, and am looking forward to seeing how they handle the load.

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!!

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.

Originals were a little tough to get off. Had to use a pipe wrench to hold them to get them off. New ones went on with no issues.

  • Should I Use Timbren Or SumoSprings Suspension Enhancement On My 2013 Ford F-250 4X4?
    Both the SumoSprings Rebel Custom Helper Springs Rear Axle # SS96MR and the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System # TFR250SDG will only engage and function when the truck is loaded down in the rear. When your truck is unloaded, neither system will be causing a rough ride. Both of these will replace the factory bump stops on your frame and offer a simple bolt-in installation process. The SumoSprings are rated at 5,000lbs max and the Timbren System is rated at 8,600lbs max. If you...

    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.

  • 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.

    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...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Recommended Timbren Suspension Enhancement System For 2016 Ford F-250
    The Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System I recommend is part # TFR250SDG, and is a confirmed fit for your 2016 F-250. This will help with the handling of the vehicle when under a heavy load such as when you are towing your fifth wheel. This system has an 8,600-lb capacity and They replace the bump stops and do not affect the empty ride of your truck. The Timbrens will not increase the load-carrying capacity of your truck. These are designed to work with a suspension system that...

  • 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.

  • How Does the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System Install On a 2015 Ford F-250
    I did not catch what kit you were using but if you have a 2015 Ford F-250 then the correct Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System is part # TFR250SDG. If this is the kit you have then these will actually attach to the frame and then center over a contact point which is attached to a block under the leaf spring pack. It does not make contact with the axle beam nor does it need to be perfectly centered over this. I have attached a photo to clarify the above for you.

  • Recommended Timbren Spacer Needed for a 2012 Ford F-250
    The recommended space between the bottom of the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System part # TFR250SDG and the contact point on your 2012 Ford F-250 when unloaded is around 1/2" to 1-1/2". The Timbrens are designed to work with all factory features including the 20" tires. However, once you install the springs and determine that you have more than the recommended space, you can install multiple of either the Timbren 1" Spacer part # A25723-90AH00 or the Timbren 1/2" Spacer part # TA25722-90P00...

  • Bump Stop Helper Springs Recommended for 5th Wheel Towing With 2016 Ford F250 4x4
    To counteract the rear end sag caused by the 2500-3000 lb pin weight of your 5th wheel, a bump stop replacement type helper spring is a great choice. No adjustment needed, nothing to leak or puncture. No need to inflate/deflate until you find that sweet spot, and they won't have any effect on your ride quality when you're not towing or hauling. The Timbren # TFR250SDG is a great product, but the 8600 lbs of additional support it provides would be overkill for your needs, in my opinion....

  • Will Timbren Kit Fit 2016 Ford F-250 with 6 inch Lift
    If your 2016 Ford F-250 was originally a stock height vehicle you would need the Timbren kit part # TFR250SDG and the 6 inches of lift spacers like part # A25723-90AH00. You would need a total of 12 and would need to supply your own longer bolts for the spacer.

  • 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....
