  • Recommended Suspension Enhancement for 2016 Ford F-150 Crew Cab 4x4
  • The Timbren Suspension Enhancement System # TFRTT1504E is a confirmed fit for your truck.

These spring are made for severe service vehicles like tow trucks so I don't recommend then for your truck as they can actually cause your truck...

  • SumoSpring Suspension Enhancement for 2017 Fleetwood Bounder with 22k Ford F-53 Chassis
  • If you wanted to install SumoSprings on your 2017 Fleetwood Bounder built on a Ford F-53 that are designed for the higher GVWR chassis you could but you should note that it would probably give you a harsher ride quality than you'd want. For GVWR between 20k and 26k you'd want the part # SSR-187-54-1. The kit for 20-22k like what you have would be the part # SSR-180-54-1 which would give you the support you want without sacrificing ride quality. I can see how it would be tempting to...

  • Advice on Towing a Fifth Wheel Trailer With a Short Bed 2017 Ram 2500 With Rambox
  • Thank you for your thoughtful question; let's start with the suspension components for your 2017 Ram 2500 first. I recommend using the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs # F2598 over Timbrens for your application. The Ride-Rite air bags have the advantage of being able to adjust individually to guarantee you even load distribution, and are going to be less rigid than the Timbrens. As far as a fifth wheel hitch, you are going to have to use a Sidewinder because you have a Rambox...

  • Comparing the Timbren Suspension Enhancement System and the Air Lift AirCell Helper Springs Kit

The Timbren have also produced much greater feedback from our customers and are currently one of the most popular suspension enhancements we carry.

Since your 35K has a GVWR of 22,000 lbs I recommend going with the SumoSprings Rebel Custom Helper Springs # SSF-170-40-2 instead which is for motorhomes with a GVWR of 16,000 lbs - 22,000 lbs.

  • Height of Timbren Helper Springs for a 2017 Ford F-250
  • There are actually just 2 Timbren helper spring kits for the 2017 Ford F-250. First we have # TFR250SDJ which has an 8,600 pound capacity and fits 2- and 4-wheel drive models. And second we have # TFRTT350J which is rated for 8,000 pounds and also fits 2- and 4-wheel drive models. So each of those part numbers appears twice because of the 2-wheel drive and 4-wheel drive categories.

  • Timbren Suspension Kit Recommendation for 2016 Ford F-150 4x4
  • Both of the kits you mentioned are a fit for your 2016 Ford F-150. The difference is that the part # TFR1504E has a 6,000 lb capacity and the part # TFRTT1504E has a 7,000 lb capacity. You would want to go with the lower rated spring as it will be a smoother ride quality. The higher capacity will be harsher. A 13 mm socket will be used to remove the bolt that holds your current bump stop in place. You basically will then need to use the attached diagram to assemble all of the Timbren...

  • Recommended heavy-Duty Air Spring System For 2013 Ford F-250 4x4 Diesel
  • I do have a solution for your F-250 diesel. I recommend the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate Air Helper Springs, part # AL88396. This system will work with tongue weight up to 5,000-lbs. It uses the air springs but also has internal jounce bumpers as a back-up in case the air springs should lose pressure. The air pressure can be adjusted from 5 to 100 psi depending on the load you are carrying. Since you mentioned the 2-gallon reserve air tank I recommend the Air Lift QuickShot...

  • Which Timbren Suspension Kit for 2017 Ford F-250
  • There are 2 Timbren helper spring kits for the 2017 Ford F-250. First we have # TFR250SDJ which has an 8,600 pound capacity and fits 2- and 4-wheel drive models. And second we have # TFRTT350J which is rated for 8,000 pounds and also fits 2- and 4-wheel drive models. The higher weight capacity and the fact it's not as popular as the lower rated kit is why there is a price difference. I prefer to recommend the lower capacity kit as it will give you a smoother unloaded ride quality.

  • The difference in harshness between the Timbren kits part # TFR350SDF and # TFRTT350F would be very noticeable. Especially when unloaded. Your truck is already going to have a rough ride as that is the nature of 1 ton trucks but the 12k Timbren kit will make for a very harsh ride when unloaded. I really wouldn't recommend that unless the truck is going to be loaded to near it's max capacity most of the time it will be on the road. For what you are looking to do I would go with the lower...

  • 2005 Ford Excursion Squats when Using Husky Weight Distribution with 9,000 Pound Trailer
  • Let's first look at the numbers. A trailer weighing 9,000 pounds will have a tongue weight in the neighborhood of 900 to 1,350 pounds. But when you calculate tongue weight for weight distribution you also have to factory in the weight of any cargo loaded behind the rear axle of your 2005 Ford Excursion. So for example if your trailer's tongue weight is 1,100 pounds and you have 200 pounds of cargo behind the rear axle of the Excursion the total tongue weight would be 1,300 pounds and...

These 3,000 pound capacity springs will support a heavy load to level your ride and minimize sway.

  • The SumoSprings Rebel Custom Helper Springs - 2 Piece - Front Axle # SSF-173-40-2 will support the load and compress together on your motorhome all the time when there is weight. The split design is a benefit for the individual springs when the suspension travel is greater than what a single non-split design could handle. In other words, when one wheel travels lower on a turn, the spring will not take weight off the wheel so it has more weight in contact with the road for better traction....

The Air Lift LoadLifter 7500 XL Air Helper Springs part # AL57596 is a confirmed fit for you 2016 Ford F-250 with factory tow package.

The difference is that kit # TABSOSR is intended for vehicles without a U-Bolt Flip Kit. And # TTORTUN4L is designed for vehicles with 3 Leaf Springs in the rear suspension. To avoid a stiff ride a better option would be air bags, # F2407. They will allow you to adjust the air pressure in the bags for the best ride quality.

  • I will be happy to help with some rear helper springs for your 2017 Ram 3500 4x4 diesel short bed. First, for your application (towing a 5th wheel trailer) I do recommend going with Timbren springs rather than air bags since Timbren springs do not require maintenance or for you to add/remove air from air bags. But air bags are superior in other ways including having the ability to level the bed side to side and adjust the ride quality to be more or less stiff. For Timbren springs that...

They will work to help take some of the stress off your existing components by stiffening the leaf springs. This will in turn help to improve handling, stability, and vehicle sag.

What I recommend is getting the truck loaded up and the trailer coupled and then adding however much air is needed to the air bags.

  • Hello, I will be happy to help you select some helper springs to improve the ride and level out the truck when you are towing. Timbren springs are an easy install but they will make the ride stiffer when you are not towing. The similar SumoSprings Solo # SSR-207-47 will also level out the truck but will not be as stiff when not towing compared to the Timbren springs. Another option to consider is Roadmaster Active Suspension # RAS3611-HD. Installation is easy with this kit as...

  • Rear Helper Springs for a 2012 Ford F-150 4x4 and Forest River Stealth Model 1913
  • Timbren rear helper springs # TFR1504D for your 2012 Ford F-150 4x4 will definitely help with the sag you are experiencing when towing your Stealth toy hauler. But when not towing or carrying a load in the truck bed you will likely experience a stiffer ride, more jarring on bumps than the stock suspension. For a similar option that features a softer spring style we have SumoSprings # SSR-117-40 rated at 1,000 pounds, or # SSR-117-47 rated at 1,500 pounds. These springs will have more...

The jounce spring will only engage after the suspension and airbags themselves take any initial pressure.

First since you are interested in helper springs we can look at those first. The Air Lift springs # AL52203 could work but the trailer, if heavy enough, could still cause squat.
