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 Rear Axle Suspension Enhancement Installation - 2019 Ford Transit T350

Today, we're beefing up the suspension on our 2019 Ford Transit T350 with the Timbren rear axle suspension enhancement kit. Before we dive in, let's see if the suspension enhancement system is gonna be a great option for your Ford Transit. Suspension upgrade, why Adding weight, more weight and even more weight causes roof sagging. Your headlights will point up. You will get worse handling and steering, less control and less comfort. With suspension enhancement added, your ride stabilizes, it levels out your vehicle, better control and steering, headlights straighten out, reduces road shock and have a safer ride in comfort.

Check out the footage that we took underneath of your Transit. We put about 250 pounds on a cargo carrier, and as you can see, the factory bounce stops don't even hit the axle. So it does feel pretty violent in the cab. Once we have the new bounce stops installed, you notice there's a lot smaller gap between our axle and the bottom of the bounce stop. It definitely helped a lot on the test course.

So the whole entire back suspension engaged much quicker. And also the biggest improvement I saw was when we took these big wide turns and really sharp turns at a higher speed. I didn't feel the body of the vehicle rolled near as much. The bracket on top's gonna be made of steel. And it has a powder coated finish.

It's not gonna really rust away over time. And the bounce stop is gonna be made of rubber but it is a hollow rubber. So it's not just gonna completely stop your axle. It's also gonna flex, even with those heavier loads you may have. If we do have a really heavy load on here and it does hit the axle, it's gonna be a lot more heavy duty than the factory bounce stop that we removed earlier.

This is not gonna increase our Transit's capacity when we're hauling, it's just going to handle those heavier loads a little bit better. So the leveling capacity of this is gonna be 8,600 pounds. It goes in the same exact spot as our factory bounce stop. All you need is a socket, maybe an extension or two, a ratchet to tighten it down. It's a very quick and easy process so let's show you how. First you want to chock your front wheels. Then we want to jack up the back of our vehicle. The goal here is to get the suspension on the rear axle to sag. So we have a little bit more room to work with. And then find a solid part on your frame to put your jack stand. Let's remove the factory hardware. All we gotta do is just pull this out like this and undo this bolt. Take a 13 millimeter socket to loosen and remove this bolt. Here's our factory hardware. So there's two different options we have with our new system. One, we can just have the metal plate here and the main bounce stop with the smaller bolt. It's a little bit bigger than the factory set up or we can go ahead and use this extra space that's included with the longer bolt to make it a little bit taller. The goal here is we want at least a half an inch to a inch and a half a gap between the bottom of this and our axle. Some useful measurements to see which one's gonna be best. This one has a height of seven and a quarter inches. And this one without the spacer has a height of six and a quarter inches. What we're doing is not using the spacers. So we're using the smaller bolt and then you want the rounded part like this to be facing up towards your frame. You definitely want to use a short socket and it's gonna be a 17 millimeter. That's just going to make sure it's not gonna fall down into the socket too much 'cause we do need to catch some of these threads. Lift it up into place, line it on up and thread it in. And then we can go ahead and tighten this down all the way once it's in place. Quick little tip: one, use a shallow socket. Two, if the bolt kind of falls in even if it's just a half inch, you are gonna wanna put something in there just to keep that bolt pushed up in the outside of the socket right here. So the threads are gonna be able to touch the threads on the frame. Now repeat on the other side, we can take our jack out and we can lower our Transit down. And remove the chocks. And that'll do it for a look at the Timbren rear axle suspension enhancement kit for your 2019 Ford Transit T350..

Initial feels: Definitely made my Motorhome steering more responsive, did firm up the rear a bit. Make sure to check the size of the hex on the bolts I had 1-17mm and 1-16mm

We purchased these for our one ton Ford Transit, which was converted by Winnebago into an RV. The springs did stabilize our ride and take away most of the vehicle roll. However, they also made the ride more bumpy. It's a trade off if you're looking for a solution to your RV riding conditions.

They definitely reduced sway and lean when driving. But also seems like you really feel every bump and increase road noise? I assume since vibration from axle can now travel directly to frame? Might need to upgrade shocks? Might soften liitle over time? Might need to get softer onesv Only have gone 80 miles with them so far. Will give it another few hundred miles and see what feel then. Overall pretty happy So far. 2017 Thor Gemini TX

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.

I have reached out to the manufacturer who will be reaching out to you.

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


I really like these Timbren bump stops. I think the best thing about them is the simplicity, both how they work and how easy the install was. I bought these when I added a dump insert (similar to a salt spreader) into my 2019 F-250. I have loaded this truck heavy before with dirt and the truck sagged tremendously and had a lot of body roll. To prevent this with the now added dump insert, I installed these. Super easy to install! Took maybe 30 min. It reduces body roll and seems to improve the ride depending on how loaded the truck is. One unfortunate consequence to the install is that the Timbrens brought to light that I have a weak leaf spring on my passenger side, which was suspect previously. Overall, I'm very pleased with this purchase and would buy again!

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


Product is high quality, all parts fit well and I didn’t have to force anything. High strength thick steel, and the jounce bumpers are seriously heavy duty. I haven’t had a load on the truck (98 Ram 3500) since install a few days ago, so they haven’t touched the base plates yet. One thing I’m concerned with is the jounce bumpers are touching and are right up against the lift blocks and U bolts. I’m unsure of the longevity these bumpers will have after a heavy load is on them and they are constantly rubbing on the hardware. Also, as the load gets heavier they expand outward as they flatten out so I’m also concerned with if that will push my lift blocks outward and mess with the suspension. I’m prepping for a slide in camper and when I get it I will have to take a look and see what effects that weight has on the suspension, the bumpers, and ride quality.


Comments
I am not sure when I will be able to have a load on it to confirm, as I do not have a camper just yet. I am currently working on upgrading the suspension in preparation for one. Is there an alternative similar solution, other than airbags - as I dont want those, that can be run? With a similar weight capacity? Kind of interesting Timbren hasnt run into this issue before with the older Ram 3500s. Wonder if this is somehow unique to my truck? All the rear components are original OEM, so it seems kind of strange.

Comments
You mentioned that the jounce bumpers were touching up against the lift blocks without a load in the truck and I wondered if you could send a picture of the installation?
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 01/05/2022

Comments
I do have additional questions for you. Is the top picture showing how the springs look with a loaded weight? Have you already installed your slide in camper? I wanted to see if the top bracket were touching as well? The manufacturer is trying to determine if a smaller diameter spring would help or not
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 01/05/2022

Comments
Both pictures are right after installation with a completely unloaded bed. Since installation, I have not had weight in the bed, so I can not 100 say if the top brackets would touch the U bolts or leaf springs. But from looking at it just now, it appears the top bracket would just barely touch the U bolts with a loaded bed, and would definitely touch if there was side to side movement with a loaded bed like going over a speed bump, pot holes, or uneven terrain.
-- comment by: Jimmy - 01/05/2022

Comments
I did hear back from Timbren. Currently there is not a bracket that would be narrower that they can offer. When loaded if the brackets interfere with the smaller spring, then it may be advisable to return the kit.

I was researching if I had an alternative and I realized that I needed to confirm your set up. Do you have the 3500 cab and chassis - if yes was it always a cab and chassis - or do you have the 3500 pickup? I am under the impression that you have the pick up since you want to use a slide in camper however, I wanted to be sure.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 01/05/2022

Comments
It is the 3500 pickup. Thanks!
-- Etrailer Expert Jimmy - 01/05/2022

Comments
I believe I now know what happened and I should have asked about the truck before now. The TDRTT3500 that was ordered is used for the cab and chassis model versus the pickup and this is leading to the fitment issues you have seen. I do have two options to offer for the 1998 Dodge Ram 3500 pickup including a different Timbren application. They are part # TDR3500
Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System
$373.07

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


First, this is the third truck have have put Timbren SES on, so I am a big fan of this option for a pickup truck. There is no impact to the ride when the bed is empty, when loaded it is a big improvement keeping the truck is a level position, reduced sway.. I would have given this 5 stars, except the lower bracket is rusting. All the other parts are painted black except this one part - see picture... This is after one year, truck is parked in a garage in NC (not a high snow/salt state)...


Comments
I continue to be a fan, on my 1019 f150, I used the 1 in spacer, works perfect ! I have dumped 2200 lbs of stone in the bed a few times, no problem.

Highly recommend for anyone towing. Leaf springs were flattened out prior to install. Swapped the bump stops out for Timbrens in a campground before making a 1000+ mile trip home. They work amazing leveled the truck out while towing and absorb the bad bumps.

I would absolutely buy the Timbren SES again if I didn’t already have them. No issues after a year.

Installed on 98 Ram 3500 pickup. Haven't put a load on it yet, but it installed very easily and fits well. Driver's side spring brackets were a bit harder to install than the passenger side, but still overall easy. One con was the powder coat finish was worn off in spots right after opening the box. Not sure if the packaging is to blame or what, but in general the packaging never seems to be that great on the etrailer products I've ordered (just brown packing paper).

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


I have a 2018 GMC Sierra 1500 pick up truck (elevation package) in which I added a 3.5 inch ROUGH COUNTRY KNUCKLE LIFT KIT with Front Struts. The rear distance between the bump stop's metal cup just under the frame and the the rear axle is 8.25 inches with an empty truck bed and a quarter tank of gas. I gave the professional this information on my truck and what I needed; they e mailed back the kit with only 1.5 additional spacers on each side of the truck, Ok. I still came up with 2.25 inch space with an empty truck bed on both sides. I feel More TIMBREN PRODUCTS WOULD be SOLD if websites carried information All together for the average people to buy at their finger tips. It would have been easier for me if the following were all grouped together for my truck : TIMBREN Rear Suspension Enhancement System TGMRCK15S (that has 3/8 bushing) which is actual about 4.5 inches not 5inches in height. FOR TRUCKS with LIFT KITS spacers are required with the same 3/8 bushings 1 inch spacer (that has 3/8 bushing) A25723-90AHOO 1/2 inch spacer (that has a 3/8 bushing) TA25722-90POO I required an additional 1 inch spacer on both sides than I was e mailed. It would also be easier if I could buy the additional bolts grouped with my additional 2.5 spacing on both sides of my truck on the web site, than going to the hardware store. I would pay the additional cost. So all together for my 3.5 ROUGH COUNTRY LIFT, I required 2.5 inch spacers on both sides with the 4.5 height kit which = 7 inches . I haul my 4 wheeler in the bed and broke a level spring years ago. On other occasions I place fire wood in the truck bed. TIMBREN is the way to go, it will be there when I put weight in the bed of truck; be it a 4 wheeler or wood. Friends of mine have air bag systems that leak over time and are much more in price. You can not go wrong with TIMBREN. When installing, remove salt and sand near top of original bump stop bolt, apply PB blast wait 10 minutes use a breaker bar with easy removal. Go to the hardware store to get longer bolts. When installing have to jack up the back of the truck under the towing package to get space to use tools to add new TIMBREN PRODUCTS.

This Rear Suspension Enhancement kit were so easy to install, I was almost sure I missed something. They installed in less than an hour. I was able to place my floor jack under the ball mount to raise the rear end enough to remove the old mounts and simply install the new ones. Hooked up my 28' rv to my Silverado 1500 and they worked as advertised. No front end sag and I feel safer towing it. Customer service helped me find the right product I needed without dishing out a lot of cash!

Never mess with airbags again on your truck. These Timbren bump stops are the only way to go. Installation took a total of 10 minutes and they work amazing. No messing with airlines, filling or deflating air bags with complicated installation. I’m towing a 44ft trailer and these Timbren bumps stops are a must. Great product but a little pricey for what they are.


Comments
After a year of towing some kind of trailer every week, the bump stops are showing some wear from riding on the bump stop pad on the axle. That being said, they are still working as intended and as good as the day I installed them. After a lot of miles, the only draw back is driving around with no trailer. Normal driving the ride isn’t effected but when you hit a bump in the road you really feel it hit the bump stop. You loose a fair amount of rear suspension travel with these but I’m used to it now.

Fitment for Ram Promaster 3500 Thor Sequence 20k motorhome: A suspension enhancement that should be installed on every Promaster 3500 camper conversion. Straight from Thor's factory, these campers wallow in wind and when semis blow by; scaring the daylights out of you. Timbren's upgrade is easy to install and results in about an additional 1/2-3/4" clearance. Improvements in handling are immediately noticeable. Even driving around town. Rounding hard curves on the interstate used to be dreadful. Now I drive into them with confidence. STILL, handling needs additional help. Helper springs will be my next purchase. Unfortunately, etrailer does not carry Hellwig EZ-990 HELPER SPRING KIT (part #9665) . It's design addresses some of the complaints voiced by buyers of etrailers option. Additionally, I considered replacing the OEM NEXEN tires with ones with a higher load rating. Thinking they contributed to handling issues. BUT, after installation of Timbren's upgrade; it was clear that is not necessary. Timbren's product is ridiculously priced for what it is. Though the handling improvements alone are well worth it. Perhaps one day these will be stock on all Ram Promasters.

Thank you for your review! While dont carry the part you mentioned, we do carry the SuperSprings Custom Suspension Stabilizer and Sway Control Kit as an alternative. I attached a link to the part.

The Timbren Rear Suspension Upgrade has worked quite well in the year since it was purchased. I also added Hellwiggs helper spring kit and changed tires to Michelin Agilis Cross Climate. One can drive the Ram Promaster 3500 camper fully loaded with complete confidence, now.

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


I just installed the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System on my 2019 Ford F-150 4x4. The install was pretty straight forward, but I will say that the written instructions were pretty vague. Reviewing the Video on the e-trailer site was helpful. Also the markings for Left and Right could be improved. The marking “L” was very small and baring readable and the “R” appeared to be under some scratch marks so it was not legible at all. I think this product will help considerably. I have attached photos. The clearance between the rubber spring and the bottom plate is approx 1”. I also previously installed the Equalizer weight distribution & 4 way anti sway system to tow my 30’ Travel Trailer. The Timbren is to prevent any slight squat may occur.

It's okay. I believe I'm going to replace it with an air bag system though, as currently every time I hit a bump the springs make the small gap to the top of these and I'm always hitting the bump stops.


Comments
You mentioned that when hitting a bump a gap appears above the springs. Would be able to send a picture?
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 05/09/2022

Comments
There is always a gap above the springs, they do not contact the leaf spring while the truck is resting. It is just small enough of a gap that any bump I do hit makes the leaf spring contact the Timbren jounce spring, which has the same sound effect as hitting a bump stop.
-- comment by: Christopher - 05/09/2022

Comments
My apologies as I was thinking that you meant that there was a gap at the top of the Timbren bump stop verses at the bottom between the bump stop and the springs. Of course, there should be a 0.5 inch to 1.5 inch gap and some people feel like it creates a stiffer ride when the truck is not loaded. I think this is what you are experiencing. I would recommend taking a look at part # AL89388

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


I bought these for a 2020 Ram 2500 because they had great reviews here and at a lot of other places around the internet. They do not fit correctly. On the passenger side, they are almost touching the frame with no load in the bed or on the hitch. The ride is absolutely terrible, very rough and painful. The ONLY time it's tolerable is with my 3000 pound camper in the bed of the truck. I would have returned these, but I waited a few months to install them, so it was too late by the time I realized how bad they were for my application. If you have a truck that is always loaded with a lot of weight, this would be awesome. Otherwise, spend the extra money and get air bags. I will be installing air bags and throwing these in the trash.
