An example of sag on a vehicle's rear axle under a heavy load

Whether you're hauling heavy loads in your bed or cargo area or you're 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 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, 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.


Animation of a standard Timbren rubber spring

Timbren Suspension Enhancement Systems are designed to work progressively. When the hollow rubber springs are compressed, the convoluted design causes them to quickly collapse along the folds. Once the folds are compacted, the stacked barrel shape increases resistance, stiffening the suspension and keeping your vehicle level.


Timbren suspension system works to prevent body roll

Each hollow rubber spring works independently to support the driver's side or passenger's side of your vehicle. This is helpful when you swerve or make sharp turns. Each spring is activated when it is needed, so body roll is greatly reduced. The independent action also works well when you 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 your vehicle. 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.


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.

2019 Ford F-550 Cab and Chassis

We purchase the Timbren Suspenstion Ehahancement System for our 2021 Ford 550 plumbing truck. The F 550 plumbing truck has a full height 6'x 12' custom made enclosed steel service body. At the time of the purchase our salesman explain that Ford makes 2 versions of a F550 cab and chassis. one F550 light duty 17,500- heavy duty 19,500. We purchased the F550 light duty thinking we did not need that much carry capacity and lowering the overall purchase price.
Once the truck body was custom made and we drove it around for a few months we notice that the light duty suspension was a little soft due to the max weight we sometimes are hauling.
This is when we look into purchasing the Timbren Suspension Enhancement System. Once we installed this system we right away notice a big difference in the stability and handling of the F550 truck and are very impressed due to the cost and simplicity to install the product. Now after 1 year with the Timren Suspension we are very extremely happy that it is performing as well as the day they were installed. We have had no issues and would purchase this product again without any hesitation.

Thank you for a very well made suspension product that meet are need.

Ford F-450 Super Duty

These work great on my F450 with towing my 21k lb 5th wheel. Also help the ride when unloaded. A cheaper alternative to airbags, and it took me about a hour and a half to install both sides. Very happy with this product


Comments
I like the Timbrens more. I am in the middle of a cross country adventure 4500 miles so far and the Timbrens are preforming great. And I am not a interstate rider, we take the rig back country, up and down 8 grades, twisty roads and bumby roads. Could not be happier.

These are amazing! Simple to install, easy to read instructions, very straightforward. Hardest part was taking off the factory bump stops, but I was lying on my back using hand tools.

I put these on my F550 wrecker and they alleviated the squat I was experiencing when towing trucks.

In the photo you can compare the factory bump stop with the Timbren.

In my truck I did not use the extra spacer that is included in the kit. If I had jacked my truck up higher I could have used it. As it is right now the Timbren's are always in contact with my axle. In my opinion my unloaded ride is better as well.

I HIGHLY recommend these for tow trucks.

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


About a 1/2 inch difference in gap at the bump stop perch but still within parameters. Truck sits perfect with trailer attached. Haven’t towed yet. After towing if they perform like they should will upgrade to a 5 star. Easy to install, definitely needed 2x4 and jack. 2011 Silverado ext cab with 30 ft Genisis 5th wheel.

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


I have used Timberns on 2 other vehicles, a Toyota 4Runner and an S10 Blazer with out complaint.

I transport RVs as a contractor for an RV transport company. My truck is 2021 Ram 3500 crew cab, 6.7 diesel.

Because the weight of the units is different with each unit I haul I wanted an easy, no maintenance solution to maintain as level a ride as possible. I haul both bumper pull and 5th wheel units. In addition to the weight of the unit I'm hauling I can carry 110 gallons of fuel with both the factory fuel tank and my auxiliary tank. Additionally, there is the weight of my Curt 25K 5th wheel hitch, Curt 14K equalizer hitch and bars, and approximately 300 pounds in tools.

I don't have to worry about airbags not inflating. The suspension settles about an inch before making contact with the Timberns. Squat while loaded is negligible. The ride empty is the same as it was before installation. The ride loaded is smooth and controlled even when hitting large bumps at highway speeds.

Installation was simple and straightforward. It took me about a half hour.

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


They definitely support and did lift my 2014 toyota tundra up about 1.5 inches.
This application with my weight has trunk riding on the cushions all the time.
That has teavel and bounce issues that do make some driving situations interesting.
I may go ahead and replace with airbags but for now support things well!

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


I think I will be very happy with the ride when I tow our fifth wheel, it definitely needed the extra support especially on rough roads.I chose not to use the spacers because I like the softer ride when the truck is unloaded.

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


Haven’t had it on long, but so far so good. 1999 F350 dually. Bolted up nicely. Total job took 10 minutes. Have hauled two gooseneck loads of hay and truck drives SO much better. Nice and level. Money well spent so far.




by:

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


I haven’t hooked up to the fifth wheel yet or else it might be a 5 star. Based on the 15 minute installation time and the price compared to air bags this appears to be a logical way to go. I will update this as I hook up and put a load on it.

I have the timbren enhancement system on my 2020 canyon. I haul a trailer with Ranger that I pull about 250 miles to hunting camp. It tows great!

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


The timbrens actually did what they were suppose to do. However, once I starter driving out west I notice the timbrens were riding on the axle which cause the speedometer to jump around depending on the road. I would recommend them if you are hauling or towing a camper or RV. I was going to contact etrailer about maybe removing a spacer for one set however the other set came as one unit. The bottom line is the Timbrens does stabilize your load for safe travels. I will be contacting etrailer soon to assist in correcting the problem...Road trip from Idaho,Colorado,Wyoming,and Utah were beautiful... Thank you etrailer

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


The Timbren rear suspension enhancement system helped with the truck swaying side to side when the slide in camper is on the truck.
The photos show right and left rear with Timbren’s installed (2 photos), with slide in camper on the truck (2 photos) and when the camper was removed (2photos).

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


Installed these with only one issue, which was on the driver side rear axle. The axle had a ABS sensor cable bracket on the axle that need to be readjusted and trimmed down. The BumpStock was hitting this bracket on one edge. So actually, it's not and exact fit. But this issue is really a FORD placement issue of that cable. So just be aware that some extra work may be needed to install them. Passenger rear side install perfectly. Next is the drive to see how much better the coach drives, heard great reviews on that

Great product, it works perfect on my truck. Sometimes I tow up to 30k lbs including my trailer and my truck stays level. No more high beam flashing in my eyes from drivers going in the opposite direction on the road.

Worked great on our 2019 Honda Odyssey Elite to the East coast.Fully loaded with 4 people and a car top carrier,the Timbrens kept the van stable and level.
Sold the 2019 but took the Timbren system out and put them in our new 2022 Elite. Very easy to install, highly recommend.

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


I used this on my Isuzu tow truck. The blocks in and of themselves are fine, they support the weight. Here's the problem: They are pre-loaded, meaning that they always touch between the frame and the rear axle. As you load the vehicle this puts more pressure on the frame in this 5" area where the blocks are. The springs have not yet taken as much weight as they normally would. Now, all this upward pinpoint pressure bends the frame. This is what happened to me on my rollback tow truck. After many hours and now double plating the frame all is well again, but a tremendous amount of work. Yes, the blocks are fine, but the result of installing this product resulted in a bent frame. The vehicle was not overloaded and was within the GVWR.

    For your 2017 Ford F-450, the Air Lift options as you pointed out are not compatible with a 5th wheel or gooseneck hitch.

  • Suspension Enhancement for 2020 Entegra Odyssey 26D
    We have a Timbren solution for the front and rear suspension of your 2020 Entegra Odyssey 26D but we do not have a SumoSpring kit that fits at this time. The Timbrens are a very similar design and would work well to improve suspension support and stability. So for that you'd want the part # TFRSDE for the rear and # TFF550SDH for the front.

  • 2022 Thor Omni RS36 Motorhome Jounce-Style Suspension Enhancement Recommendation
    We do have a specific product like the SumoSprings that fits your 2022 Thor Omni RS36 on the Ford F-600 chassis; the Timbren Suspension Enhancement System for Front # TFF550SDE and Rear # TFRSDE. This installs similarly to the SumoSprings and is simply a different brand - it doesn't look like SuperSprings has a fit for this chassis as of yet (April 2022). This kit replaces your factory bump stops so you'll get better support for your motorhome.
