Timbren Jounce Spring Clearance to Axle in Ford F-250

Question:

I just bought the Timbrens for my 2017 SD. There is exactly 1/2 inch from the bottom of the Timbren to it strike point. Is that enough room or it is going to really change the ride in my truck.

Helpful Expert Reply:

You have your Timbren jounce bumpers installed correctly in your F-250. The ideal spacing from the bottom of the spring to the top of the axle is right around that same half-inch that you have. In some applications the gap can be larger but 1/2-inch is within spec. This is enough of a gap that the springs will not engage when the truck is unloaded but close enough that the springs will engage the axle when there is a load, either cargo in the bed or trailer tongue weight.
