Reduced axle sag with Timbren suspension enhancement

Just like the rear of your vehicle will sag under the weight of a fully loaded bed, the front of your vehicle will sag when under the burden of heavy equipment such as a snowplow. In this case, the front axle is handling not only the weight of the equipment, but also more of the vehicle's weight. Overall vehicle 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.


Install diagrams of Timbren hollow rubber springs

The Timbren system comes with custom-fit brackets that are bolted onto each frame rail above your front axle. Hollow rubber springs are bolted to the bottom of the bracket and hang down so that the bottom of each spring touches the axle. Because each spring is making constant contact with the axle, it is always working to cushion and support your factory suspension.


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're carrying off-center loads.

A snowplow mounted to the front of the truck will require extra suspension support for the front axle.

Timbren's Suspension Enhancement System will help raise the front end of your vehicle when you're using heavy equipment like a snowplow. This ensures that your headlight beams will be pointed in the right direction and tire wear will be reduced. If the plow is off-center or has an extension, the springs will automatically compensate for this as well.

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. More elasticity allows for a more comfortable ride because the rubber has more travel.

When I installed these on my 2015 Nissan frontier sv, the bump stops did not sit square with the top plate, but at an angle I wasn't sure how this would effect travel of the timbrens or the function. Not sure if others have same issue or not. Long story short, this positioning caused excessive stress on the mountingnut location and tore at the bottom right next to the mounting bolt. Timbren was contacted and a replacement was sent free of charge. Excellent customer service- friendly, great attitude to help me out. Performance - handles larger bumps/dips better but smaller ones are felt more. Stiffens up front, notice wind gust influence substantially less. Do feel performance has diminished after a year. Upgrading shocks/coils for lift and better ride. May remove timbrens altogether. Someone with a plow would appreciate these more.

Ford Explorer

Here is my install on my 2WD Ford Explorer front. Easy job, I don't recommend installing these with lowers suspension as the ride is too harsh, I adjust mine back to stock. Works the way I need them to.




by:

Great product would recommend and buy again. Instalation was a snap did it in about 2 hours front and rear.




by:

These are great, but would not line up correctly on the front of my nissan frontier to get an even load. I sent pics to etrailer and talked to a "suspension specialist" and was told that it was normal to have the timbren to be mashed down on one corner rather that and even depression. I called/sent the same pics to timbren and they sent me some tapered shims and longer bolts free of charge, so they would line up to get an even load on the timbrens. They also said that they should have been sent with the shims and longer bolts because this alignment problem was not unusual. Great product, but less than impressed with the decision made by etrailer.

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.




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.

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.

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


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.

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

I will say they are perfect for towing but when your not towing cause they are so close to the bottom it feels stiffer when not towing! They should make long enough so that it touches besides that these are perfect

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


Too early to give a ride review but I received the TFFF53B fronts and the TFRF53A rears for my 2019 Fleetwood Southwind 35K while at a campground this week. Easy enough to change out while there. It is about.a 2 hour job to change out all 4. The front right took me the longest and you have to reuse the existing bolt. A washer should be provided because the hole in the bracket is almost as large as the bolt head. I will be placing a large flat washer there. The rears took less time to change.. I used the first and third slots in the mounting brackets and they actually put the unit more over the center of the axle than the original bump stops. Same was true in the front. No clearance issue or interference with my trac bar.


Comments
Have had these on my RV for over a year nowhere and I am completely satisfied. The fact that these always maintain contact with the axles greatly reduce body roll on turns and uneven roads.

  • Comparing Timbren Front Helper Springs for a 2000 Mercury Mountaineer AWD
    The higher the helper springs are rated the stiffer the ride will be. Since the 1,000 pound springs # TFXF1004A will be more than enough for your application and 2000 Mercury Mountaineer I would go with them and limit the stiffness of the ride quality. Timbren springs # TFXF1004A are only for 4x4 models which may be referred to as all-wheel drive from the manufacturer.

    The easiest way to determine if your 1998 Ford Explorer has the factory air leveling system (automatic ride control) is to call a Ford dealer and have them look up the VIN in their computer system to see how that vehicle was equipped. If the system is supposed to work automatically then I would think that you would have heard an on-board air compressor kick on at some point to level the vehicle. You also may want to check the vehicle owners manual because sometimes they will list the...

    Timbren springs # TFXF1004A are the only front suspension enhancement product available for the 2001 Nissan Xterra 4x4. Since it was designed to fit stock, non-lifted models, you will also need spacers to take up the gap from the lift kit.

This will help reduce the amount of front end sag when carrying the plow.
