An example of sag on a truck's rear axle under a heavy load. The Timbren Suspension Enhancement System levels the vehicle.

When hauling heavy loads in the cargo area or by pulling a trailer, you will often see the rear of the vehicle 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 vehicle's weight as well. Because less weight is on the front axle, the front tires are making less contact with the road. Overall vehicle handling - traction, steering, and braking - is negatively affected. The resistance from Timbren's Suspension Enhancement System works with the vehicle's factory suspension to keep the vehicle level and improve your driving performance.


Diagram of the Timbren spring installed

The Timbren system has a vehicle-specific 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 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 provides increased resistance, stiffening the suspension and keeping the vehicle 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 the 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 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 helping 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 passing of a semi) because the movement from the trailer is not transferred to the vehicle. This also works to make the sway subside quicker.


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 as the rubber springs work to prevent bottoming out on rough roads.


Compared to the competition:

Timbren's suspension enhancement systems are much easier to maintain than air springs - no air hoses are needed to be run, no compressors or gauges to hook up, and no manual adjustments necessary. The rubber construction causes Timbren's springs to be more elastic than similar products constructed of micro-cellular urethane. 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..

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

I installed these on my 2003 Honda Odyssey that I tow a small pop up trailer with. It really improved the road feel and the occasional bottoming out of my trailer hitch mount. The installation was fairly easy thanks to the video tutorial and the product fit perfect. I highly recommend it! 600879

Timbren THROD2 work as stated. Easy to install. We have them installed on our '06 Honda Odyssey to help us pull our pop-up camper (2k# dry). The suspension was being bottomed out with 3 kids, camping gear and tongue weight of our camper. While they won't raise like an air bag system they don't require any maintenance either. Set and forget them. They will support once the springs are being maxed out. Much better ride when we have a loaded vehicle. They are also nice that they won't affect the ride when driving with light or regular loads. We have owned and used them over a year now with multiple trips and glad we bought them for our Odyssey. 485561

Have not tested to the fullest but instalation was not bad once I installed the first side on 2009 Honda Pilot. So far so good. Recomend watching few videos on instaling rear spring and shock absorbers. If equip with tow package, there is an aditional bolt on a stabilizing bar that connects to the arm that will require a 14 wrench and a hex for the tip. Muffler does get in the way to pull the spring but nothing a big push the arm cannot fix. Make sure you have hex tips for your wrench to install. 336553

I can't believe the difference these have made on our Honda Odyssey. The overall ride and handling is much improved (even when empty) and we can now tow our 3500lb tent trailer with the van. Would highly recommend... 286404

2015 Honda Pilot

Our 2015 Pilot 4WD was rated to tow up to 4500 LBS. We bought a 3000 lb.trailer that had a tongue weight of around 375lbs. The heavy tongue weight caused the back end of the Pilot to sag and bounce when towing. After having the Timbren Enhancement Sys. THROD2 installed there is NO sag and NO bounce when towing! It has not changed the suspension characteristics when not towing either. I highly recommend this product . Install from an independent shop was $225. This product was worth every penny! 607473

2013 Honda Pilot

I purchased this product for my 2013 Honda Pilot to avoid rear end sagging when towing our new travel trailer. Tongue weight on the trailer was near 400 lbs. I had my mechanic install the Timbren's as it required some rear suspension disassembly before the coil springs could be removed. That was a good call. The install on the Honda is more complicated than most. End result was a less than 2 inch drop in the rear end under load and no weight distributing hitch necessary. Great purchase. Great product. 289009

Product requires removal of coil springs, sway bar, original stop bumpers, and wheels to install. Product contacts lower swing arm when installed and not under a loaded condition. Increases stiffness in suspension and also creates a rougher ride and increased road noise. It does prevent the typical sag in the rear suspension. There is no gap between the newly installed Timbren rubber and the vehicle suspension when installed and the normal weight of the Pilot as per instructions indicate there should be. 121754

Suspension is solid! Vehicle rool on turns is gone, towing an enclosed 16 foot cargo trailer is a breeze! Nice product and never have to worry about loosing an air line or bag because this system is simple and solid. Keeping it simple!!!

So far so good. I installed these myself on a 2008 honda pilot it took a couple hours because the bolts on the sway bars were rusted to the point that I just torched them off and installed new ones. I pull a pop up camper that is full of every thing that my wife can fit into it so it is pretty heavy and Vehicle was sagging noticeably. As far as I can tell the ride hasn't changed with or without load and there is no extra road noise. It feels much more stable and safe. I am happy with the purchase. 267339

Excellent system. Levels the vehicle and enables me to haul much heavier cargo. Rides normal when empty, rides a little stiffer when loaded,but will not sag the springs like before. 172169

I bought this kit for my Honda Odyssey because my winter tires would rub the rear fender liner when I hit a bump, especially if I had people or cargo towards the rear cabin. I ended up removing this kit and replacing them with a 1,000# air bag helper kit that fit inside my rear coil springs. The airbags enabled me to dial in the exact ride that I wanted, furthermore they were less than half the cost. Pros: easy installation, long life, always in place, maintenance free, no airbags to pop. Cons: non-adjustable 456734

Product installed easily into 2015 Honda Pilot Touring 4WD. Both sides took a little over an hour to install. I've noticed minimal ride quality difference when not under load, and a stiffer ride under a 430 pound tongue weight but less sag in rear suspension. 259855

*** Don't try this at home. *** These rear spring inserts for beefing up the suspension and limiting the rear end sag, well they really do work. For anyone towing, you need them. If you have any doubt, put it aside and bite the bullet. The Australians know so much about suspensions because most of their roads are unpaved. However - regardless of what you read on the internet - don't try and install these at home. My Honda Pilot rear springs still have tension in them when the vehicle is up on a lift and the wheels off. Removing those rear springs without jacks to compress the rear springs, and then slowly releasing the tension with a hydraulic jack - it could result in you not needing this product after all - because you'll be dead. Have a good mechanic install them for you. It took my mechanic about 2 hours of labor in a professional shop with all the right tools. I am very satisfied with the product and with etrailer. 676800

I installed these on one of my customers vehicles, A 2006 Honda Odyssey. They use it to tow a trailer and transport several people and as expected, weighs down the backend. These did a great job in supporting the added weight. Reduce sagging greatly and no more bottoming out. As a professional mechanic, I highly recommend these. 645042

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


Comments

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


I first put the Timbrens on the rear to help stop bouncing and porpoising on highways and bridge ends when towing. The rears have a gap and do not touch the springs until the truck is loaded, working great and keeping a smooth unloaded ride. The front Timbrens fit snugly and touch all the time. The ride is firm and a bit harsh with my unloaded truck having a snow plow spring option. When my trailer 30 ft trailer is hooked up, the front of the truck is slightly lighter. Towing with the Timbrens is nice and the bounce and rebound porpoising is very controlled. I would like the front Timbrens to be a little softer when the truck is unloaded, but I think these units are a nice add-on for better control, safety, and preventing damages. I had the fronts installed at the shop when rotating tires and a front end alignment. The rears installed easily. 691475

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


TOTALLY AWESOME PRODUCT.....Though I wished I had them when we trailered the hot rod out to New Hampshire last month. We received this item late as it was on back order for far too long. I did get a chance though to put the levelers through their paces when using our 18' lo-boy to haul large limbs, branches and other brush to compost site. The truck did NOT flinch and inch downward as it did WITHOUT the levelers. I liked too that the installation was basically pretty easy. I highly suggest going this way and leaving the air bags for the big truckers. Don't have to fuss with filling or deflating bags or dealing with leaky bags. This is a presto zippo installation and you can play "immediately". 550307


Comments

I couldnt be more happier with this product. Truck is still remaining relatively level, even with the hot rod in the enclosed trailer. Hot rod weighs in at 2200 pounds and nary a between truck and trailer. As in my earlier review, I HIGHLY recommend this product over air bags...so much LESS hassle .

this is the second set of Timbren springs I have purchased, the first set was on my Ford Raptor, they took all of the sag and sway out of pulling my boat. I have this set on my 2015 GMC Denali 2500HD, I pull a 42 ft. 5th wheel and the Timbren's take all of the sag and sway out, these are in my opinion the best product I have purchased for my truck. 683687

I put the Timbrens on a 1997 k2500 I haul 2 mobility scooters and travel trailer. With just the scooters and no Timbrens the truck set down about 3/4-1 inch so I installed mine with the 1/2 inch space left. With just scooters it rides firm but not harsh if on dirt road or hitting a hole you will know it with trailer attached it rides great no more rear end of truck bouncing up and down when going over a bridge. Also helps on truck lean when going in curves has been a great product for me 513079

Product came securely packaged and complete and quick. Took about 45 mins to install. I bought this to try to reduce the 3 1/2 inch sag at the hitch of my Lexus GX460. It did that well. I now only sag 2 inches that I feel is acceptable. The trailer has about 484 lbs weight. The ride doesn't seem affected and towing bounce(porpoising) is gone. Thank you etrailer. 560925

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


Working great. I had read reviews about them being too stiff whem you aren't pulling a trailer, but it seems like they softened up a bit after first putting them on. I felt a few hard jolts going over speed bumps and such the first few days, but now I don't notice them at all when I don't have a trailer attached. They are still improving the ride with a heavy trailer. I'd give 5 stars but my mechanic neighbor had to help me install them because there was something wrong with the bolts that came in the package. It was a year ago and I can't remember the details. Without him I think I could have returned them and gotten a fix and installed them by myself. It's a very simple install when all the parts are in good shape. 549083

After a 3000 mile trip with a 42' fifth wheel on a 2016 Chevrolet single rear wheel short bed 3500HD, I will say they made a difference. They took some of the bounce and the side to side rocking out of the truck. I would definitely put them on my next truck as well. 667565

I purchased a used pickup without any jounce bumpers. I ordered these to provide more support rather than going back with stock ones. I pull a 5th wheel and these keep the truck level with less bouncing around and bottoming out when towing. When I'm not towing they sit about an inch or inch and a half about the stops so they do not negatively impact the ride quality. They work as advertised and I'm pleased with them. 653123

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


I installed the front and rear Timbrens on my 2017 Georgetown GT5 class A. The installation was pretty easy, except for the tight areas getting the wrenches on the bolts. The front passenger side used the original bolt to install on my frame. Installation took about two hours to complete the front and back. It would be quicker if you use power tools, but I wasn't in any hurry. I've driven on two trips now with them, and they made a noticeable improvement on the rocking sideways back and forth.

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


Hey guys, I'm 76 and I installed these in 30 minutes. Took longer to get the tools together and get under the truck than to remove old bumps tops and install new ones. Thanks etrailer 546853

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


Product was purchased based on mechanics recommendation for a friends F250 being used to tow a thirty foot gooseneck 3 horse trailer with living quarters. Post installation performance was all we hoped for. Service from etrailer, before and after the sale, is what every mail order company should strive to achieve. I will not hesitate to utilize etrailer in the future. They are flagged in my favorites. 324435

Not really happy. They do provide some additional support. However, they interfere significantly with the factory hydraulic self leveling suspension system called Automatic Height Control. Most definitely will not purchase again! 676582

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


got the product when stated , went on simple enough but used google to really see how things went together. Timbren doesn't give very good instructions with their product wish they would put diagram so as to be able to see how brackets go, but happy so far haven't put load on the truck yet that's coming up with a trip in august with my 30ft camper and truck loaded for trip guess will come back and let you know how the product works after the trip , but etrailer delivered when they said they would thanks will keep you in mind for future purchases. 544811

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


Purchased for Lexus GX460. Solves rear sag problem when towing with medium to heavy trailers. I don’t notice any difference in the ride when not towing a trailer with the helper springs. Should really come standard with the vehicle I’m the first place in order to utilize the towing capacity. I would highly recommend this cheap fix. 468046

The parts were all there and putting them together was as advertized in the instructions. I can't wait to load up the camper and test drive the 350 super duty. 89353

  • Timbren Rear Axle Jounce Spring Kit for 2006 Honda Odyssey
  • The SumoSprings Coil Helper Spring kits # CSS-1168 and # CSS-1168R that you found on our site are actually the same product. The R designation that we use on the one kit refers to an application on the REAR coil springs on a 2006 Honda Odyssey like yours. SumoSprings has not tested the springs on the front coils of your vehicle. For the 2006 Odyssey only rear axle kits are available since on this vehicle the low-slung rear suspension is most often where support is needed. The SumoSprings...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendation for 2015 Honda Odyssey
  • For a trailer hitch for your 2015 Honda Odyssey we'd recommend the Draw Tite part # 75270 which is a confirmed fit and is a 2 inch hitch and has plenty of towing capacity for towing. I attached an install video for you to check out as well. For trailer wiring you'd then want the # 118521 which is a confirmed fit as well and is the most reliable option we have. I attached an install video for this for you to check out as well. Since you wanted to do some towing you might be interested...

  • Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement for 2010 Honda Pilot
  • Although the Timbren springs might sit at roughly the same level above the axle, they are constructed completely differently. The factory bump stops are intended to keep the suspension and axle from bottoming out against the chassis of the vehicle. The Timbren springs are designed to become progressively more stiff as weight is added to the vehicle. It's not the length of the spring, but the way it's constructed and the way it behaves when weight is applied to it that's important. Keep...

  • Difference of Suspension Enhancement Springs on a 2007 Honda Odyssey
  • Choosing between jounce-style springs, coil helper springs, and air springs depends on why you need them in the first place. All three improve your ride, absorb shock, and will help prevent your 2007 Honda Odyssey from sagging. However, the jounce-style are not engaged when the vehicle is not loaded and are there for additional support when it's needed. Air springs however are always being used to help your ride. Also, the psi can be adjusted based on the amount of weight in the vehicle....

  • Will Timbren Rear Suspension System # THROD2 Stop Sag When Towing with 2005 Honda Odyssey
  • I have included a link to the complete installation instructions for the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System, # THROD2, on your 2005 Honda Odyssey. Just raise the vehicle to allow the axle to hang freely and remove rear coil springs and existing bump stop. Now you can mount the Timbren assembly to the existing bump stop brackets and re-install your coil springs to complete the project. This system will reduce vehicle sag and acts as a shock absorber to extend the life of your...

  • Can a Rear Suspension Kit be Teamed with a Weight Distribution System on 2006 Honda Pilot EX
  • Generally speaking, a properly-rated weight distribution system should provide the necessary correction for rear-end sag in a tow vehicle. We do not recommend using both a rear suspension jounce spring or air spring kit, such as the Timbren # THROD2, along with a weight distribution system as the two can sometimes fight each other and result in erratic handling. On their website Honda specifies a 3500-lb towing weight limit for travel trailers pulled by their 4WD Pilot EX (and 4500-lbs...

  • Suspension of 2008 Honda Pilot Squats When Cargo Carrier is Installed
  • So, what you are saying is that once the cargo carrier is loaded up with whatever you are carrying, the rear suspension compresses quite a bit, is that correct? If this is the case, it sounds like you would be a good candidate for a rear suspension enhancement kit. For a passive system that would only come into play when extra weight is applied to the rear of the vehicle, like when the carrier is being used, the Timbren # THROD2 system would be great. Install the system, and you would...

  • Trailer Hitch, Wiring Harness, Transmission Cooler and Suspension Enhancement for 2012 Honda Odyssey
  • Let's begin with the trailer hitch. The Curt Class III trailer hitch, part # C13068 offers the best ground clearance of the available Class III hitches so that's the hitch I'd recommend. For the trailer wiring harness, I'd go with the # 118521 from Tow Ready. You'll also need a ball mount like # 2753 and a trailer ball. For a 1-7/8 inch ball, use # 19261 or # 63845 for a 2 inch ball. In the owner's manual, Honda strongly recommends installing a supplemental transmission cooler, like...

  • Will Timbren Rear Suspension System # THROD2 Work on 2003 Honda Pilot Towing 2,900-Lb Tent Trailer

I do have a couple of air spring systems that will work on your Honda Pilot, but they are rated for a maximum weight capacity of 1,000 lbs and will need to be manually inflated to even your load distribution....

  • Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for a 2008 Honda Odyssey Towing a Boat Trailer
  • I can help you out and make it really simple for you. Honda states that weight distribution cannot be installed on their vehicles (this information should be in the owners manual). So that leaves suspension enhancement which will be more cost effective and easier to install anyway so it is a win/win. There are a few different system for your 2008 Honda Odyssey, see link. The air bag types are great for carrying various load sizes that change frequently. But for a vehicle that will basically...

  • Alternative To Weight Distribution To Reduce Vehicle Sag When Towing Trailer w/ 2006 Honda Pilot LX
  • If Honda states that a weight distribution system is not to be used on your 2006 Honda Pilot LX, I would follow the recommendations set by Honda. However, I do have a solution that will help reduce vehicle sag when towing your 2006 Flagstaff 625D. Not installing a weight distribution system, will not allow you to reap the benefits that a weight distribution system provides. With a weight distribution system, the load you are carrying is distributed throughout the frame of the vehicle....

  • Will Suspension Enhancement System Work With 2005 Honda Pilot AWD
  • I called my contact at Timbren about the Rear Suspension Enhancement System, part # THROD2, and I also called my contact at Firestone about part # F4179. If you have a strut that is running down through the middle of your rear coil springs then neither of these systems will work for your Pilot. These are installed inside the coil springs on your Pilot and will not affect the ride when the vehicle is not loaded down. These systems are intended to be used on a vehicle with a good working...

  • Solution for Rear Suspension of 2010 Honda Odyssey That Sags When Trailer Is Hitched
  • As a starting point, I'd recommend having the rear suspension of your Odyssey examined to make sure everything's in good repair. Both the # CSS-1168R Coil Sumo Springs and the Air Lift # AL60815 will affect your vehicle suspension whether the trailer is hitched or not. Both types of systems can have their drawbacks. The air springs can leak, and although the Coil Sumo Springs work as they are supposed to, I'm not a huge fan of using zip ties to hold a suspension component in place.The...

  • How to Reduce Sag While Towing with a 2006 Honda Odyssey
  • The use of a properly rated and installed weight distribution system should not require the use of additional suspension enhancements. Before recommending additional components for your 2006 Honda Odyssey, I would first want you to check that the system you have is appropriately rated for your total tongue weight. Your total tongue weight can be calculated by adding the loaded ready to tow tongue weight of your trailer by any cargo storage behind the rear axle of your van. An easy way...

Both the # F4138 and the Timbren # THROD2 are compatible with MDX models that have the coil spring rear suspensions only. It will not work on models equipped with the Coil-Over-Strut suspension.

  • Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for a 2014 Honda Pilot

What you would want is the Timbren kit part # THROD2 which is a confirmed fit for your vehicle. The added benefit to this kit is that it does not require you to ever mess with inflating bags or maintaining air pressure. It's very much a set it and forget it type setup.

  • Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for 2015 Honda Pilot AWD
  • If it really feels like your front wheels aren't making good contact with the road you are in a dangerous situation. That would mean that in an emergency you wouldn't be able to stop or turn quickly. I looked up the towing capacity of your vehicle and it could be between 2,000 and 4,500 lbs. First thing you need to do is verify that you are not exceeding your capacity.

  • Can AirLift 1000 Rear Axle Helper Spring # AL60815 Support Trailer with 600-lbs Tongue Weight
  • The rear-axle air bag kit you referenced, AirLift 1000 Helper Spring # AL60815, provides up to 1000-lbs of load leveling at its maximum pressure rating of 35-lbs psi. Your trailer with approximately 600-lb tongue weight would certainly fall within the operating range for this product. If you are towing often and frequently have widely varying trailer weights then an adjustable air bag kit like this AirLift 1000 is a good choice for adding rear-end support.

What's also nice about this system is that it uses trunnion style spring bars which will help with ground clearance...

  • Why Does It Say Not To Use a Weight Distribution Hitch for 2015 Honda Pilot
  • Yes-there is a reason. The Honda Pilot has a unibody frame, which means that the frame and body of the vehicle are all one piece; this is compared to a body on frame construction where the body of the vehicle sits on a ladder like frame. Because it doesn’t rely on heavy steel rails like those of a body-on-frame vehicle, unibody construction cuts significant weight out of the vehicle, allowing for better fuel economy. It also offers better handling and ride comfort and is safer, since the...
