How to Install the Timbren Rear Suspension System on a 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 3500


Brad Hello neighbors. It's Brad here at etrailer. And today we're taking a look at installing the Timbren rear suspension enhancement on a 2022 Chevy Silverado, 3500. Now, this is what it's gonna look like installed. And compared to the factory jounce bumper or bump stop there it's quite a bit taller. And the great part about that is, is it's not necessarily going to bump up your capacity but it does have a load limit of 8,600 pounds.

And what that's gonna do is this is gonna make contact with our axle quicker. So, when we do have that load, it's gonna press against here. And then this is gonna kind of take over allowing you to give a firmer feel in the rear. It's not gonna have your rear end sag as much whereas before you're really relying on that axle to drop all the way down until it hits the bump stop. So, you are already sagging at that point.

So, this is just gonna supplement to really come into play a little bit earlier and it's just overall gonna give you a lot better feel even in turns, as it kind of leans. Once this makes contact earlier than the factory jounce, it's gonna be a nice solid field because these Timbrens are a nice construction here, that's gonna be firm. It gives you a solid feel without being harsh and during normal driving around without any loads you're not gonna really notice a firmer ride because this isn't making contact. So, for daily driving purposes, it's gonna be great because it's not gonna alter the comfort but when you are hauling, it's gonna come into play pretty quickly and give you a better feel overall. Now, a lot of people ask what the best option is for making a better tow experience.

And a lot of times they want airbags and airbags seem like a really cool system, but there is maintenance involved and that's kind of the glory of these. You just kind of pop 'em in and they're ready to go within about 15 minutes. You can do it in your driveway or in your garage and I'm gonna show you how to get those installed. So, let's take a look at those now. Now to begin our installation obviously we're gonna be on a lift, that way we can actually show you guys the installation portion a little bit easier but chances are you're gonna be doing this at home in your driveway or in your garage.

And the first thing you're gonna want to do is raise up the rear end. Now I'm using a trans jack here on the hitch. You can use a floor jack and just make sure that it's nice and secure. You might wanna chalk your front tires as well. And the main reason is we're gonna be lifting the suspension up to allow our axle to kind of drop down and that's just gonna open up our window. And that way we can fit our new Timbrens in there. Then the original ones will come out pretty easy but since these are quite a bit taller we're gonna need that space to be able to get them in. So, I'm gonna go ahead and raise this up and we're gonna see that gap where our original jounce bumpers start to get a little bit taller. And as I mentioned before, you don't need to raise it all the way up to where the tires are coming off. You just want some of that suspension to open that window up for us. Now to get our factory jounce bumpers out I'm just kind of keeping pressure on the bottom here. I have my flat head just gonna kind of pry this and that's gonna pop out like that. So, go ahead and do the same on the other side. To get these in place, they do just kind of compress in and pop in, but in order to make sure that they're fully secure to kind of get these in we're gonna use some soapy water here. This is just gonna kind of help just guide those in make it nice and easy to slip in. Now, I also recommend having a two by four handy cause we're gonna try to get it started at least. And that's gonna be pretty easy to just push up and give it a twisting motion. And hopefully we can get it to just seat enough to kind of hold that in position. Once we're kind of, at this point we can actually take a two by four and I'm just gonna place this underneath it and that's gonna kind of hold it in place. And now I'm just gonna slowly lower our trans jack and allow it to compress in. And just make sure that it is nice and perpendicular here. And so it seats properly with just the pressure of it compressing should be enough to pop that in place and it should be seated perfectly. So, now we're just gonna go ahead, repeat the same process on the other side. With those compressed in all we need to do is make sure we get our two by four out of there, lower the truck down and then either load up the bed or hook up a trailer either way, put a load to really test this out and just notice the difference. Now this is something that you're gonna enjoy every single time that you're towing or hauling and it's gonna be working to help your suspension do more with what it has. And that was a look at an installation of the Timbren rear suspension enhancement on a 2022 Chevy Silverado, 3500..
