Reduced rear axle sag with Timbren suspension enhancement

Whether you're hauling heavy loads in your bed or cargo area or towing a trailer, you will often see the rear of your vehicle sag while the front end rises. In these cases, the rear axle is handling not only the weight of the cargo, but also more of the vehicle's weight. Because less weight is on the front axle, the front tires are making less contact with the road. Overall handling - traction, steering, and braking - is negatively affected. But the resistance from Timbren's Suspension Enhancement System works with your factory suspension to keep your vehicle level and improve your driving experience.


Diagram of the Timbren spring installed

The Timbren system comes with custom-fit brackets that are bolted onto each frame rail above your rear axle. Hollow rubber springs are bolted to the bottom of the bracket and hang down to where the bottom of the leaf spring sits, 1" above the axle. The inch of clearance allows the existing factory suspension to operate normally under light loads and standard terrain, ensuring the smooth, comfortable ride that you are used to.


Action of a standard Timbren rubber spring

Timbren Suspension Enhancement Systems are designed to work progressively. When the hollow rubber springs are compressed, the convoluted design causes them to quickly collapse along the folds. Once the folds are compacted, the stacked barrel shape increases resistance, stiffening the suspension and keeping your vehicle level.


Timbren suspension system works to prevent body roll

Each hollow rubber spring works independently to support the driver's-side or passenger's-side of your vehicle. This is helpful when you swerve or make sharp turns. Each spring is activated when it is needed, so body roll is greatly reduced. The independent action also works well when you are hauling off-center loads.


Trailer swaying as it is towed behind a truck

Because your vehicle handles better with the springs, less turbulence will be passed along to the trailer and this helps to keep the trailer in line. Your driving comfort is further enhanced if the trailer does begin to sway (from a gust of wind or a passing semi) because the movement from the trailer is not transferred to your vehicle. This also works to make the sway subside more quickly.


An empty truck on a bumpy road without Timbren SES

Another great feature of the rubber construction is that the springs absorb most of the road shock, creating a smoother, more stable ride overall. Wear and tear on the factory suspension is also lessened because the rubber springs work to prevent bottoming out on rough roads.


Timbren Suspension Enhancement Compared to the Competition

Timbren's Suspension Enhancement Systems are much easier to install than air springs - there are no air hoses to run, no compressors or gauges to hook up, and no manual adjustments to make. The rubber construction makes Timbren's springs more elastic than similar products constructed of microcellular urethane. And more elasticity allows for a more comfortable ride because the rubber has more travel.

My Timbrens work great. No adding or subtracting air for towing. No worries about air lines leaking or coming loose. Just hook up the 5th wheel and go. No muss, no fuss, no sag.

Very happy with the purchase process, best price, quick delivery.

They did not fit right on my 2021 power wagon, I had to modify to make them line up with my differential and had to buy shorter mounting bolts for the bracket plus they where already used

2017 ram 2500 with coil springs. Wast of time, install with 1” spacer, truck road like a box of rocks, could feel every little bump, took 1” spacer off not much better at all, way to stiff of a ride, when you hit a bump you new it. Parts are already in box to go back. Not any fault or etrailer at all, they don’t make the product just sell it.




by:

Very easy to install. Does exactly what they say it will do. I no longer experience the sag, roll, and sway that is associated with Ram 2500 coil suspension.




by:
2020 Ram 2500

Bought them to remedy sway problem my rig (2020 Ram 2500 Hemi, with slide in camper) experienced recently. I was debating between add Timbren and a stronger sway bar. Decided to try Timbren first for cheaper price and ease of installation. Just returned from a camping trip from Tahoe last night without a single case of sway during 500 miles of driving. Highly recommend this product.

Watched numerous videos highlighting the Timbren SES and how to install on my 2019 RAM 2500. It seemed like a good idea due to the fact I tow a 5th wheel RV that almost maxes out the payload limit on my truck. I had them installed as instructed, which included installing the spacers, by a local garage. The ride home was an eye opener. The ride was very stiff and it felt like every bump in the road was magnified. Fortunately a few of the videos I watched suggested the install minus the spacers. I returned to the garage and had the SES reinstalled without the spacers. The ride home again was much smoother. I can't wait to hitch up my 5th wheel and go camping knowing I have the Timbren SES installed to help cushion the suspension of my truck.

2015 Dodge Ram Pickup

Installation was a breeze took about 20 minutes to install. I have a Travel Lite 840SBRX slide in camper on my 2015 RAM 2500 4x4 SB. My truck is lifted in the front for a level ride and when the camper was loaded it had little to no squat in the rear at all. The ride without a load is stiffer but not bad. Loaded with camper and they worked perfect. No roll in the corners and no porpoising.

2019 Ram 2500

They work as expected and installation was 20 mins




by:
2020 Ram 2500

Installed on a 2020 Dodge 2500. The ride when empty is awful. Like riding in a wagon it is so stiff. I took out the round disk to give a little play between the stop and diff. Loaded my 4 Wheeler on a trailer and it was terrible. I hate to hook up my 34 foot toy hauler. I'm afraid the truck will beat me to death, it is so stiff.
Therebis absolutely no give here. I am surely disappointed and will remove these and try something else. Air bags

Awesome service

Super easy to install, let's see how long they last. The local truck camper dealer says he has been installing them for 10 years and no failures.

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


Worked great on our 2019 Honda Odyssey Elite to the East coast.Fully loaded with 4 people and a car top carrier,the Timbrens kept the van stable and level.
Sold the 2019 but took the Timbren system out and put them in our new 2022 Elite. Very easy to install, highly recommend.

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


I used this on my Isuzu tow truck. The blocks in and of themselves are fine, they support the weight. Here's the problem: They are pre-loaded, meaning that they always touch between the frame and the rear axle. As you load the vehicle this puts more pressure on the frame in this 5" area where the blocks are. The springs have not yet taken as much weight as they normally would. Now, all this upward pinpoint pressure bends the frame. This is what happened to me on my rollback tow truck. After many hours and now double plating the frame all is well again, but a tremendous amount of work. Yes, the blocks are fine, but the result of installing this product resulted in a bent frame. The vehicle was not overloaded and was within the GVWR.

  • Recommended Timbren Suspension Enhancement for 2018 Ram 2500
    Since you will be hauling a slide-in camper on your 2018 Ram 2500 you will want to go with the 8,600 lb Timbren # TDRTT3500E. I checked with Timbren and their recommendation is if you have a slide-in camper the best option is the severe service kit, as that will give you the best stability for your application.

  • Timbren Recommendation for 2016 Ram 2500 with 2,600 lb Slide In Camper
    For the weight of your slide in camper the heavier duty Timbren kit part # TDRTT3500E that you referenced would be the way to go. This can provide up to an additional 8,000 lbs of suspension support so it will work well for your application.

There are standard, double convoluted Timbrens that should have a gap, but the ones you have are meant to be touching the axle.

I have a few different options to help with this. If you are looking for a rugged sort of set and forget option then I recommend the Timbren Suspension Enhancement System part # TDRTT3500E.

    If you are asking about a front leveling kit on your 2022 Ram 2500 affecting a rear suspension enhancement system, then I can say that it will not. However, if you are asking about a front leveling system helping with rear sag and preventing the front of your truck lifting up, then I have to say it will not do either of these things, unfortunately. With that said, supplementing the rear suspension will assist with both of these things. The Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System # TDRTT3500E...

    If you are looking for something smaller than the Firestone Ride-Rite Red Label Extreme Duty Air Helper Springs # F2706 to shore up the suspension on your 2018 Ram 2500 Power Wagon, you will want to look at a Timbren set up.

The correct part you want to use is # TDR2500D as the other part for the rear suspension, part # TDRTT3500E, is designed for service vehicles that are under a constant heavy load.

    The difference between the Timbren # TDR2500D and the # TDRTT3500E is that the TDRTT3500E are designed for commercial service trucks which will have a more beefy suspension system already and a slightly different frame. The TDR2500D is designed for the passenger vehicles like your 2017 Ram 2500, so this would be the Timbren SES you're looking for.

That said, I would actually recommend the part # TDR2500D for your truck instead of the part # TDRTT3500E as these are more designed for service trucks or those with an in-bed camper.

These springs have a 5,000 lbs capacity when they are compressed at 50%. The best part about them is that they are a two piece system and the two pieces stay disconnected when the truck is unloaded.

With the Timbren option having 8,000 pounds of load leveling capacity, they will of course be the more heavy duty option. They will definitely help with sag and body roll, but this is intended as a Severe Service kit.

A light or medium duty just won't offer the support that you will need for this particular trailer. For SumoSprings the heavy duty part for your truck is # SSR-302-54.
