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.

Review from a similar Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


I have a very heavy "Cattle Guard" on the front of my RAM 3500 and this combined with the heavy 4WD and diesel engine the extra support from the Timbren Front Suspension Enhancement System definitely keeps the front suspension from bottoming out. 644652

Review from a similar Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


I had bought these timbrens and the weight safe hitch with the 8” drop from etrailer. I was quite please by both products. Installation of the timbrens was very easy, only took 30-40 minutes to change out bump stops in my garage.I hauled a Uhaul trailer with a Jeep over 300 miles, with no issues. The timbrens worked great, no issues with the rife. And I really like the weight safe hitch. I recommend checking out these two products from etrailer. Thanks etrailer. 642864

Great no issues, made a couple trips out to California pulling heavy trailers, the hitch and timbrens are working out great.

Review from a similar Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


Installed this on my 2009 Caravan because when I had a hitch mount 4-bike platform rack hanging off the back and was loaded with camping gear and family, the rear suspension was terrible, it would bottom out, and my headlights pointed up so that everyone would flash their brights at me. New shocks helped, but did not solve the problem. This product did fix the problem and I am very happy. I was concerned about the feel when the van us unloaded, but this has not been an issue. I highly recommend this product. 796869

Review from a similar Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


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

Review from a similar Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


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. 654107


Comments
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.

Review from a similar Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


I had a problem with getting front sumo springs relative to the rear sumo springs I purchased earlier; however, the staff at etrailer were very helpful in getting me a suspension enhancement component made by timbren which I just installed. I believe the timbren supports are going to do the job I was looking for and make me just as happy as I am with the rear sumo springs. You will notice from the photos the supports make direct contact; however, the pictures were taken on a unlevel surface and when the truck is on a level surface the direct contact is equal on either side. Also, the timbren supports provide substantially more weight capacity in the event I choose to haul my scooter on the front end of the truck. Thanks again Derek S and etrailer staff I am very pleased with the service, customer relations and professionalism experienced when ordering my parts. Thank you, Bobby (Louisiana). 640223


Comments
The timbren springs are working out better than expected. I installled new Monroe matic RV shocks front and rear on my 2006 Chevy Silverado 1500 just prior to putting the timbrens on the front and the sumo springs on the rear and the ride is great especially with a load or hauling my travel trailer and the ride is just as smooth empty. I highly recommend the timbren and sumo springs because they fit by application and there is nothing additional to buy. Thanks etrailer.

Review from a similar Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


Functionally these Timbren Rubber Springs provide additional load capacity and reduce tipping while turning around corners on my F-150 as claimed; however, the set I purchased was overly stiff (I was only hauling 500 additional pounds). Timbren provided a replacement set with lower capacity which helped tremendously; however, it still rides slightly stiff. I wish Timbren or a competitor would provide these rubber springs in different durometers that provide 1000 lb increments to fine tune the suspension - reducing the over stiffness performance. 655944


Comments
The ride is still too stiff for my preference. I continue to be on the lookout for incremental rubber durometer springs that enable fine tuning suspensions.

Review from a similar Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


I debated for awhile weather or not to get this product or air bags. I chose this product for its value and high reveiws. I also like that it is maintenance free and lifetime reveiws. There is really nothing to go wrong except for the brackets to possibly someday get rusted. But the brakets seem to have a powder coat or really good paint. I installed these my self. Can be installed in a couple hours on a newer truck that has rust free u bolts. Just take the wheels off and jack the truck up and loosen u bolts and remove old bump stops and install the Timbren helper springs. I thought the hardest part was re torque the u bolts. The package I got had a one inch spacer which I installed. It made my helper springs about 3/4 inch below the bump stop. If I hit a good bump on the road I can feel them bottom out a little. Bit nothing that would change my mind about putting them on. I pulled my dump trailer since I put them on and it made a world of a difference. Very little squat and gave the truck a nice firm ride. I would recommend these to anyone that has a tight budget and wants a safer driving experience. 635935


Comments
Best thing for the money. Would buy them again. The only thing I would try next time is getting a bigger spacer from the factory so there is little to no gap between the frame and the rubber spring. I only had a little over a half an inc but by the time I put my camper on the truck look like it is starting to square.

I ordered timbrens for the front and rear of my chevy 2500. I have a 2000 lb truck camper and I wanted something to help carry the load a little better. I had no idea that my front bump stops had worn away to almost nothing until I installed these. They have worn well and performed well so far. 628835

My van is a 2000 GMC Safari. when pulling my 17 ft. boat it would sag pretty bad. after installing the Timbrens it sits level and isn't bottoming out anymore. Great product and great service from etrailer. The Timbrens went on very easily and the instructions were good. 122042

Van gave out about 2 months after installed them, didnt notice much difference except van road rougher. It was an older van and might have done better with new shocks.

With this Timbren System installed you may notice a difference in the ride quality of the van when the Timbren springs are not activated. The benefits of Timbren suspension enhancement systems are designed to provide additional support when there is a load placed on them and on the vehicle suspension.
