What our customers are saying:

WOW! I am impressed! I called to place my order and real person answered, spoke perfect English, albeit a slight southern accent, and my order was sent within a day, shipped quickly and I had it a few days later. I saved over a hundred dollars over local and installed it my self. I cant imagine how that they could do any better. THANKS!

Expert Answers about Timbren

  • Best Way to Prevent Sagging Suspension When Towing a Trailer
  • For sag from towing a trailer the best recommendation I can make is actually a weight distribution system. Suspension enhancement will help level your truck while towing. But the advantage to a weight distribution system is that it levels the vehicle by distributing the tongue weight of the trailer up to the front axle of the vehicle as well. This will help greatly with handling and braking, especially in an emergency situation. The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is...

  • Can Timbren Axle-Less Suspension System Work With Off-Road Tires?
  • There is a 2,000 lb capacity Timbren Axle-Less Suspension with 4" Drop Spindle # ASR2KHDS09, though not a 1,200 lb one. I am not certain what you are referring to in terms of "strong enough" but it will work with 3,500 lb rated hub and drum assemblies # 84546UC3-EZ as well as 3,500 lb brakes. If you were referring to your trailer being strong enough, if you do not have a crossmember above where you want to install the Timbren one will need to be added, or you can reinforce your trailer's...

  • Replacement Axle Recommendation For Small Popup Camper
  • The axles we offer are available in 3 lengths. They are 60 inch, 72 inch, and 89 inches hub-face to hub-face, but I may have a solution for you. We do offer axle-less systems that are either bolted or welded to the trailer frame. This would replace the axle and suspension system you currently have on your camper. If you are looking for a system that has a 3,500 lb weight capacity, I recommend part # A35RS545. This is a straight spindle and has a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern. For a system...

  • Comparing The Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System To The FlexiRide Half Torsion Axle System
  • For an off road overland trailer, I recommend you go with the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System with Hubs - 5 on 4-1/2 - Off-Road Tires - 1,200 lbs # A12WS545 and not just because we carry them...as I know seems like a conflict of interest. The Flexiride system even with a 1,400 lb capacity is not made for off road and the suspension is a torsion system with rubber cartridge on each side. The Timbren system uses more of a jounce style bumper that the company is known for regarding...

  • Rear Suspension Enhancement Options for a 2004 Cadillac Escalade EXT
  • I may have a solution that will work for you, however, we do not offer replacement air shocks for your 2004 Cadillac Escalade EXT at this time. We do offer coil spring air bag inserts like the AirLift 1000 Air Helper Springs, # AL60769. These air bags fit in the rear coil springs and can be manually inflated for additional support. Another option would be a bump stop replacement like the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System, # TGMRG25C, that you referenced. These are rubber springs...

  • 3,500 lb Timbren Setup Recommendation for Off-Road Wheels and Tires
  • For a wheel and tire that big your best option would be the Timbren kit part # ASR35HDS02 which is set up for wider tires and also has a 4 inch lift built into it. This is the same 3,500 lb capacity though. That being said we can only safely recommend using trailer rated wheels and tires wit this kit. For just a hub without a drum you would want the part # AKIHUB-655-6-K.

  • Drum Brakes with Parking Brake for Timbren Heavy-Duty Axle-Less Trailer Suspension ASR35HDS02
  • With the Timbren axle-less suspension system # ASR35HDS02 you can install 5-bolt electric drum brake assemblies like # 23-112 and # 23-113. These are left- and right-hand brakes with parking brake mechanisms that are rated for a 6K axle system. You can use lock washer # 38LW and nut # 38N to install the brakes. If you need a brake adjustment tool we offer part # W80630.

  • Recommended Compatible Hubs for Use with Timbren Off-Road Suspension System ASR35HDS02
  • In order to use 6-on-5-1/2-inch bolt pattern hubs on a Timbren axle-less suspension system those hubs will have to use the same bearing set as the hubs intended for that system. In the Timbren system # ASR35HDS02, for example, which has 4-inches of lift and is rated for 3500-lbs and off-road tires, the bearing set is inner bearing # 25580 and outer bearing # 15123. We do offer idler hubs and hub/drums in the 6-on-5-1/2-inch bolt pattern that you can see by clicking on the link provided....

  • Recommended Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension for 5 on 5 inch Jeep Wrangler Tire
  • The Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System - Spindle w/Brake Flange # ASR2000S02 does have the ability to incorporate a hub that has a 5 on 5 bolt pattern. If you would like just the hub it is part # AKIHUB-550-35-K and if you would like to have brakes you will need the Hub and Drum # AKHD-550-35-EZ-K, Right Hand (passenger's side) Brake Assembly # 23-48, and Left Hand (driver's side) Brake Assembly # 23-47. With that being said, we highly recommend using trailer tires on a trailer...

  • Timbren 3,500 Pound Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System to Work with Hydraulic Handbrake
  • We offer three heavy-duty off-road Timbren systems for 3,500 pound axles: Straight spindles # ASR35HDS01 2 inch lift # TASR35HDS06 4 inch lift # ASR35HDS02 I've linked our selection of hub and drum assemblies that will fit the Timbren systems so you can choose the correct bolt pattern.

  • Hand Brake Recommendation for Timbren Axle Less System
  • To use a hand brake like the part # T2385200 with the Timbren system part # ASR35HDS02 that you referenced you will need to use a hydraulic drum brake with a parking brake linkage. Since the recommended hub/drum is the part # 8-201-9UC3-EZ which is a 12 by 2 inch drum the correct left hand brake assembly would be the # T2351300 and the right hand side would be # T2351200. I also attached a help article on adding hydraulic drum brakes to a trailer for you to check out as well.

  • Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System Recommendation for a 1977 13 ft Scamp Trailer
  • Converting a torsion axle trailer to a trailer with a Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System has been done before and most people who have done this really prefer the smoother ride and increased ground clearance. Timbren Axle-Less trailer suspension system is a great alternative to torsion axles. While both systems allow either side of the trailer's suspension to operate independently, only Axle-Less suspensions are actually separate units. Torsion axles still require a bar that...

  • Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for a 2011 Dodge Ram 1500 Towing a Gooseneck Trailer
  • For occasional towing with your 2011 Dodge Ram 1500, I would go with the Timbren suspension enhancement system. If you do not have a Quad Cab, use # TDR1500DS. If you do have a Quad Cab, use # TDR1500DQ (instructions linked for reference). The Firestone systems are good when you carrying varying sized loads and have to adjust the ride accordingly. But for occasional towing of the same trailer, the Timbren system would be the way to go.

  • Is the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System a Good Choice for a Motorcycle Trailer
  • The Timbren suspension system, like # A20RS440, is designed to be toe-in when there is no load on it. So when the load is placed on it it will push the tire out so that it is riding straight on the ground. Provided the trailer is not overloaded and the tires are trailer tires and inflated to the maximum psi as indicated on the tire, then you should not see excessive wear and get more than just a few thousand miles out of a set. A regular axle has a bow in it. That bow should be pointed...

  • Timbren or SumoSprings Recommendation for a 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500
  • Because the Timbrens like part # TGMRCK25D that you referenced have a reputation as having kind of a harsh unloaded ride quality I would recommend the SumoSprings part # SSR-207-47 since you will get the same support without as harsh of a ride when the vehicle is unloaded. I attached an FAQ on Timbrens for you to check out as well.

  • Rear Axle Suspension Kit Recommendation for 2013 Ram 1500 Quad Cab with Coil Springs
  • The Timbren rear axle jounce spring kit you referenced, part # TDR1500DQ, is a fit for your 2013 Ram 1500 Quad Cab. This rear axle kit fits both 2WD and 4WD models. There are several types of rear axle kits available for your Ram 1500. These include rubber jounce springs like the Timbrens, air bag kits from AirLift and Firestone, and coil springs such as the SuperSprings Sumo urethane coil helper springs.

  • Reducing Rear End Squat when Towing Trailer with 2014 Ram 1500 Crew Cab 2x4
  • Normally weight distribution is the best option when squat is caused by a coupled trailer. But since the manufacturer of the trailer specifically said not to use it the next best option would be suspension enhancement for your 2014 Ram 1500. I do recommend the Timbren springs # TDR1500DQ because they do work well. They may allow the suspension to travel some before they engage but the squat should be reduced if not eliminated. I have included a link to a video showing installation of...

  • Will Timbren Suspension System Help Smooth Ride For 2013 Ford F-250 Hauling A 5th Wheel Trailer
  • For your 2013 Ford F-250, the Timbren Rear Suspension System, part # TFR250SDG, should work just fine. These install in place of the factory installed bump stops so they should not interfere with the fifth wheel installation at all. These are designed to provide additional support as needed when carrying light loads, and become more rigid as more weight is added. One of my co-workers has these installed and said that when traveling over very rough roads, these will cause the ride to be...

  • What would I Need to Upgrade from 3,500 lbs Tandem Axles to 5,000 lbs Tandem Axles
  • We carry the Timbren Axle-Less System rated at 5,200 lbs part # ASR5200S01. The axle-less system mounts to your trailer frame and takes the place of your old axle and springs.# ASR5200S01 is a straight spindle design. Timbren also offers these axles with a 4 inch drop spindle part # ASR5200S04. The Timbren Axle-Less can be mount tandem to repalce your tandem axles. There is no need to install leaf springs, because the Timbren axles have built-in spring system on each axle. However,...

  • Recommendation for Suspesion Enhancement Compatible with a Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, 2006 Dodge Ram
  • In order to determine if the Timbren Vehicle Suspension, # TDR2500CA, and the B and W gooseneck hitch you have installed will interfere with each other, you will need to take a look at the installation details, linked below, and the video showing installation on a similar truck to see if any of the same attachment points are used. Based on the video and instructions, to me it seems unlikely but possible that the two will interfere with each other. Also, these springs are designed for...

  • Timbren Suspension Kit Recommendation for 2007 Dodge Ram 2500 with 4 inch Lift
  • The Timbren kit part # TDR2500CA is the correct kit to use on your 2007 Dodge Ram 2500, but you may also need lift spacers depending on your lift type. Since you have a 4 inch lift most likely you have a suspension lift and you would need a total of 8 of the part # A25723-90AH00 to make up for the additional space. These are 1 inch spacers and you would need 4 for each side. You would need to provide a longer bolt too as we don't carry that. If your lift is a body lift instead then...

  • 2015 Ford F-150 Sags at the Back When Coupled to Trailer with 550 Pounds Tongue Weight
  • Sag at the rear of a vehicle such as your 2015 Ford F-150 can happen from 1 of 2 ways. First, weight in the actual truck bed can cause sag. Second, the tongue weight from a coupled trailer can cause sag. The ways to deal with the sag are different. When sag is caused by a trailer the recommended solution is weight distribution, not helper springs. Weight distribution will more evenly distribution the force of the tongue weight to all of the axles on the tow vehicle and trailer so it...

  • Recommended Axle-less Trailer Suspension To Replace Tandem Torsion Axles
  • We don't carry the complete torsion axle you are looking for, however, I recommend the Timbren Heavy-Duty Axle-Less Trailer Suspension - 4" Lift Spindle - Wide Tires - 2,000 lbs # ASR2KHDS03 that will fit your trailer and will also give you more clearance underneath your trailer. It uses just a 2 inch square tubing between the axles and gives you the suspension you need in the axle-less suspension. This axle-less system can be used for tandem applications.

  • Wall Thickness Recommendation for Square Tubing Support For Timbren Axle-Less Suspension
  • If I were installing the Timbren Axle-Less Suspension System, # A12WS545, on my trailer, I would use a 2 inch steel tubing with a wall thickness of 1/4 inch. I spoke with my contact at Timbren and he told me that they do not have a minimum thickness that they require as long as it was a 2 inch steel square tube. It is recommended that you add this tube if your trailer does not have a crossmember above the suspension and 1/4 inch is a common wall thickness for a 2 inch square axle.

  • Electric Trailer Brakes and Hub/Drum Assemblies for Timbren Axle-Less Suspension Kit
  • If you have a 2K-rated Timbren axle-less suspension kit # ASR2KHDS03, which includes brake flanges but not hub/drums, you can add brakes and hub/drum assemblies. For the hub use part # 84546UC3-EZ. This has the matching bearings and 5-on-4-1/2 wheel bolt pattern. For compatible self-adjusting 10-inch electric drum brakes use kit # AKEBRK-35-SA, which is a pair of left- and right-hand brakes rated for 3500-lbs.

  • Recommended Suspension Enhancement To Reduce Sag On 2014 F-250 With Fifth Wheel Trailer
  • To help reduce sag on your 2014 F-250 when you are towing your fifth wheel trailer, the best option is to use suspension enhancement like the Timbren part # TFR250SDG. These hollow rubber springs sit above the rear axle and are the best option when you are towing a trailer that will have a load that stays the same. The air bag option like part # AL88396 is a better option when you are hauling loads that have various weight in the truck bed like rock or mulch.

  • A Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System is a great way to reduce sag on your 2016 Ram 1500. They're easy to install without any drilling by replacing the factory bump stop. If your Ram is a Regular Cab, you will need # TDR1500DS. If you have the Crew or Quad cab, then you'll need # TDR1500DQ. I've included an installation video on a 2014 Ram which is a very similar process to yours. The best way to reduce sag is with a weight distribution system. A weight distribution system...

For optimal balance between softness and toughness, fabricators choose the double-convoluted rubber spring. Taller than the single donuts, these springs are engineered to deliver superior ride quality and significant load capacity. The springs in kit # TGMRTT35D are single-convoluted. When space is limited or extra stability is required, fabricators and engineers...

Because of the differences between the weight capacity of the suspension system and the weight of the cargo you plan to carry, there will likely still be some trailer bounce, as the system will not eliminate...
