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..

Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System - TFRF53A

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (1927 Customer Reviews)

8,600-lb Capacity. These hollow rubber springs sit above the rear axle to help stabilize and level your vehicle. They also provide a more comfortable ride by absorbing road shock and improving roll stability. Easy to install and use.


It was very easy to order this item from Etrailer. The item was delivered earlier than expected in strong packaging. Now for the Springs. I chose these because of the no drill install and reading a lot of reviews. I placed the springs on the rear axle of my 2018 Georgetown GT5 on the Ford F53 20,500lb chassis. It took around 20 min on my back but was easier than expected and I am 74. I have driven 1200 miles on the springs and I am more than happy with them, worth every penny. Side wind and passing trucks was almost eliminated, almost. 643899


Just installed the Timbren suspension stabilizers on the rear of my Newmar Canyon Star 3911 motor-home. The installation was easy and simple. As the video showed, just remove the old bump stops and install the Timbren's. They are significantly larger than the stock bump stops. After having installed the Sumo Springs on the front and the Timbrens on the rear, the ride is so much better. No more swaying back and forth when a big truck passes or a crosswind. I highly recommend this combination since there is no drilling into the frame of the motor home and you do not have to remove the tires either. 695925


The help I received from E trailer was great. They fit perfect! Highly recommend 680204

Great service, will install this afternoon. assemble in my garage should have them on the afternoon, trip tomorrow will report the change to the ride next week. 605206


Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension

Makes a huge difference in carrying heavy loads. I could tell an immediate difference when I had a full bed, gooseneck load, or a bumper pull load. Highly recommended. I considered air suspension, but did not want to tackle that installation. Literally can install this with a torque wrench and impact wrench. 725228

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension

Bought these because I just put a plow on my truck and I didn't want to mess with air bags or heavy duty springs that would raise the front of my truck. These suspension enhansment bumpers are extremely easy to install, fit perfectly and do exactly as they advertise.. couldn't be happier 726518

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension

This was so easy to install, you DO NOT need to take rear tires off.. 60 Minute install. I went without the additional spacer to allow for a little nicer ride when empty. Very well made 730169


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

Took a couple more trips this year, and its all still working good, but I found out there still is a limit to how much weight you can pack on the rear axle. Dont recommend using a double hitch extender for bike rack plus towing because it spans the tongue weight too great of a distance from the van and gets too close to the ground. This is as much a comment on not overloading the suspension as it is on the DrawTite hitch I got on etrailer.

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension

I recently ordered and installed this suspension enhancement for my 2017 Nissan Titan SV 2WD, Crew Cab. I will be road testing it next week with a heavy duty 20' flat trailer, carrying a 2,800 lb car, 500 lb 4 wheeler and misc items for an estimated total of near 6.5-7k lbs of trailer weight. In addition, I might be carrying a 450 lb go-kart in the truck bed. I feel this will be a good test of the products' capability and performance. Approximately 2 weeks ago, I towed an 8.5' x 20' cargo trailer weighing out at nearly 9k lbs on the same 500 mile trip. For that trip, I had the stock suspension setup and used a weight distribution (WD) system. The trip went smoothly, but I'm hoping that this suspension enhancement will eliminate the need to go through the WD hookup process. A followup review to come. I've given this a 5 star review due to the excellent customer service I received from Ashley. I was traveling back down to Florida from up north and had questions regarding compatibility with my truck. She called the company, Timbren, to verify that it would work and answered all my questions, since I was driving at the time. She even pushed the order through quickly and got it out that same day. I was amazed when I received it yesterday, less than 2 days after I ordered it and installed it in less than an hour. This is truly an example of the excellent level of customer care that etrailer provides its patrons and exactly why they are my first choice for all my trailering needs. Thank you. 725798

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension

These are one of the best products ever! Simple, effective and a reasonable price. They are carefree, invisible when unloaded and very easy to install yourself. I tow a 37ft 12,500lb 5th wheel with my 2018 2500HD. Though my truck already handled the load well, these make the ride more stable and controlled. Lifts the rear up about 1.5 inches as well as keeps things centered from left to right. What's most important when towing is keeping the steer axle on the road. Though I recommend them for any towing configuration; for those of you that push the limits, these are a must have. Brilliant product! Thanks Timbren for the magic bullet! 708124

- TFR1504D

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension

These work as advertised and do a great job of preventing the back end of the truck from dropping too low when hauling or towing. When pulling our 8000# trailer the truck ride is relatively level. I would prefer they were maybe a 1/2" to 1" shorter so the unloaded suspension would have a bit more travel. With a cap on the truck there is less than a couple of inches of travel before the stops are hit and it does make the ride more harsh. I knew this would be an issue with these. They are considerably less costly than airbags with zero maintenance concerns. 611406

Towing our 15 thousand pound fifth wheel is way better since i installed these. Highly recommend over the the ride. Easy install. Fuctional affordable. Great product 500554


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

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

Best available for Kia I wish I would have known about this product sooner. I have a Kia Sedona and there are only 2 suspension aids available. I previously had the Firestone airbags and don't recommend. The bags and compression fittings leak and installations complicated. This was the only other option so I gave it a try. Very glad I did. They do exactly what they say they do. The Sedona doesn't dip nearly as much when I put the trailer on. In fact I had to go to my lower rise hitch so it would sit flat. Ride is solid, but not jarring. I don't really know about the reliability as I've only had them about a week, but it's a very simple concept so I can't imagine problems. They are basically oversized flexible bump stops and have no moving pieces. They seem expensive for what they are, BUT installation is MUCH cheaper than the airbags. It cost me just a bit over a hundred bucks to have them installed at a local service chain (Tuffy). They also are very discrete so your warranty likely won't be called into question. 3579

    First, if your RV is sagging because the suspension is worn, you will need to have the suspension fixed before adding springs. Suspension enhancement systems are designed to be installed on a vehicle with suspension that is in good working order. Once you are sure your suspension is in good working order I recommend using a system with a higher capacity. For a higher capacity system, 16K to 22K, use # SSR-181-54-1.
