Timbren Axle-less Suspension for Off-Road Tear Trailer


Hi, Im looking at purchasing a Timbren Axle-less suspension system for an off-road tear trailer. My question is, are these all the parts I need to install the brakes and hubs, wiring aside, to the spindles? P/Ns: ASR1THDS03, AKEBRK-35-SA , and AKHD-545-35-EZ-K . FYI, Im planning on using a Prodigy P2 controller in my 2014 Subaru Outback. Any other recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thank you,

Yes, it looks like you've made a great choice. The Timbren Axle-less Suspension # ASR1THDS03, will be ideal for an off-road teardrop trailer. This system is rated at 2200 lb. and will make off-roading much more comfortable as the rebound springs will minimize rattle and bottoming out. The hubs you selected, # AKHD-545-35-EZ-K and the brake assemblies, # AKEBRK-35-SA are a good match.

The Timbren Axle-Less suspension system may require additional support on your trailer. If your trailer does not have a cross member above the spot where you want to install the Timbren system, you may need to reinforce the frame (see photo). I've attached a video that shows how to do this with standard 2" steel tubing.

The hubs will work with 13-17.5" wheels with a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern. I love the look of these 15" Black Mod Wheels, # AM32238B or these 13" Steel Mod Wheels, # TA73RR. I'd also recommend picking up some wheel bearing grease like # L11465 for your EZ Lube Hubs.

Your 2014 Subaru Outback will look amazing pulling your new trailer. Please let me know if you need help with the wiring once you get to that point on your project. I'd love to see pictures of your progress too. Happy trails!
