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.

Not as good as Sumosprings. The Tibrens on the rear of my truck are way too stiff, and don't have a gradual compression. It's like riding a rigid frame


Comments
Since the springs are not an adjustable spring, some people feel that it does create a stiffer ride when not towing with a load on the truck. For a 2004 Chevy Silverado there is several alternate air bags available. I recommend taking a look at part # F2250
Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs - Double Convoluted - Rear Axle
$392.72
from Firestone. It works with 2 or 4 WD and with in bed hitches.

The springs have eliminated the squat and have softened the suspension while towing. While unhitched, the rebound is very limited and a bit tough going over bumps or pot holes. I have to admit I installed the additional “hockey pucks” that came with the kit. If I remove them and just install the springs, the rebound would be increased and soften the ride. My tow vehicle is a GMC 1500HD. The installation was very simple. I am very satisfied with this product. If you are finicky with ride quality and do not mind spending more money, try the airbag kit.




by:

Not Made in China! but from our neighbors up North. Good quality and easy installation on a 2008 Chevrolet Silverado HD Duramax 4X4. Installed the kit with the additional round block that is barely resting on the rear axle. I purchased the kit to avoid heavy trailer tongue weight that was causing an uneven vehicle stance. Haven't had a chance to road test yet. I hope is doesn't affect the factory ride.


Comments
If you do test it without a full load and the ride is too rough, you can remove the spacer.

Perfect fit and works as advertised. The Timbren were very easy to install. Thanks for the advice etrailer!


Comments
Both pictures are right after installation with a completely unloaded bed. Since installation, I have not had weight in the bed, so I can not 100 percent say if the top brackets would touch the U bolts orleaf springs. But from looking at it just now, it appears the top bracket would just barely touch the U bolts with a loaded bed, and would definitely touch if there was side to side movement with a loaded bed like going over a speed bump, pot holes, or uneven terrain.

The installation was on a 2009 Silverado 2500 HD 4X4 and the product fit perfectly! Installing them was a snap! They really made a difference when towing my 5th wheel RV.




by:
2009 Chevrolet Silverado

I put these on my 2500 HD Silverado with a Bull Dog ATV carrier and towed a 6000 lb. camper into the mountains this weekend. With the Timbrens and an equalizer hitch, I never felt a better ride on the highway towing before. These are much better than the air bags and no maintenance. My atv rack ways 300 lbs in the bed of the truck and the ride empty was not rough at all.




by:
2004 Chevrolet Silverado

Great product, SO easy to install if there was a hard part i guess it would be getting the old bump stops off. I have an 04 Silverado 2500HD we have a 94 Elkhorn truck camper. These new Timbren springs took all the rock out of the ride. With out the springs suspension sagged 3 inches with the springs it only sags 1.5 inches witch is the gap to the axel from the spring. I used the spacer that was included. Product comes with all new hardware. I can get over how easy the installation was. Stock ride of truck remained the same after installation too.




by:

Best investment for my suspension. I have had them for over a year and haven’t broken any springs these were my third set of springs. I can fit 7-1/2 yards of wood chips on a full load averaging 6200 lbs. and tow a 6800 lbs chipper!!!

I carry a few more tools in the back of my truck than the average person does. My main leaf springs, just touch the overload springs in my day-to-day activity. I wanted to lift the truck up just enough to reposition my springs into the unloaded position.

Then when I hooked up our 9,000 lbs. travel trailer the springs would be in a better position to handle the additional load. The Timbren enhancement system worked just the way I had hoped. I would recommend these to anyone who might want to do the same thing that I did.


Comments
After one year of pulling our TT the Timbren springs are working just like the day they were installed. I cant see any compression of the springs after 15,000 miles of towing. I would recommend these springs to my friends.

Removed my old air bags after fighting leaks for 6 months. Installed the solid rubber TGMRCK25S. Truck rides a little stiffer,but the body roll has been almost eliminated. Lot more stable in turns. My truck is a bit overloaded with my camper but is level and not mushy as before. Great product.


Comments
Ive had the TGMRCK25S instled for over a year now and couldnt be happier. I have a 2007 GMC 2500HD with a Artic Fox 990 cab over camper. The body roll is minimal and overall stability ks greatly improved. Great product.

2016 Chevrolet Silverado 2500

I installed a set of these on my 2016 R 2500 to control body roll when hauling my slidein camper. It completly eliminated the body roll when loaded and improved ride when empty. It is very easy to install and works better than described. Both sets arrived within 2 days of order. Another benefit over airbag system is if your truck is on rack for repair the timbren will not be damaged when truck is raised on lift.


Comments
I am completly satisfied with the timbren suspension aid. It stopped the body roll on my truck wirh my slidein camper on. Thanks for selling a quality product.

2003 Chevrolet Silverado 2500

I installed this on my 03 GMC 2500 Duramax ex cab Long bed. The reason for the installation was, when pulling my 35 foot Hitchhiker 5th at night my headlights
at low beam were too high and causing problems for oncoming traffic,. This was
caused by deflection in the rear springs. The installation corrected the problem.
I carry tools and other equipment in a 29x56 inch in bed tool box that is mounted
in the front of the bed, the box loaded weight I would estimate 135lbs. There is
also a 20k Reese hitch which is mounted in the bed and I would estimate the weight with the mounting rails as around 100lbs, with there combined weight
empty ride is like axle is a solid hookup to the frame via the rubber bumpers.




by:

These were exactly what I needed they only get used when you have a heavy load so there is no change to the ride quality, very heavy duty and well made. I also purchased front ones for my truck because I use it for plowing and made the truck so much better when having the plow attached, I highly recommend, also there were both pretty easy to install.

2003 Volkswagen CC

I have a 2003 GMC 2500HD Duramax 4x4 CC. I put on super springs when the truck was new. I pull a Alpenlite 5 wheel, with a pin weight over 2300 lbs
I wanted to change from super springs to timbrens to loose weight and retain support for suspension.
I installed timbrens without the spacer and they rested on the axle pad. The ride wasn’t awful but more harsh then with the super springs. I reinstalled the super springs and this gave me an
1 1/4” space from timbrens and axle. I haven’t pulled the 5 th wheel yet. I think with both on should help with sag.




by:

Didn't have all the hardware, I have to go buy all the nuts.(Didn't want to just say I have no nuts). But the product looks great and was a very easy install.


Comments
This kit is supposed to come with 4 nuts. I will have customer service reach out to you.

Put them on my Chevy 2500 for more stability when I pull my 35ft fifth wheel camper. They help control any sway and help keep my truck level. Like them alot.




by:
2007 Chevrolet Silverado

The product is great. It has leveled my 2007 Chevy Silverado 2500 classic, while towing. As expected, the ride is much stiffer during travel without the trailer.
The shipping was very fast. Ordered on Wednesday and arrived Friday the same week.
Packaging was a diiferent issue. The box was torn upon arrival and hardware was missing(see picture).
Used the additional spacer for a inch of extra ride height, since I tow every day.
Overall, the product is serving me well.

I run a salt spreader in the winter on a 3/4 ton truck. It weighs around 4500 pounds full. I wouldnt dare fill the salt hopper all the way up without these.




by:

Thank you etrailer or the quality products and prompt response and delivery. 5th wheel hitch setup was easy to install as well as the suspension upgrade.Thank you.




by:

I have used the Timbren units on my current truck as well as two others in the past, including on the front of a snow plow, and I am very happy with them. I like their simplicity, performance, and ease of installation.




by:
2005 Chevrolet Silverado

I love, Love, LOVE these things. The ride quality when towing our 9000# RV is like night and day. Dramatic improvement due them being in contact with the axle. I highly recommend purchasing these if you have issues when towing. Installation was a breeze. No issues at all.




by:

The product serves it's purpose by transferring the load directly to the axle. Thereby bypassing your suspension system. As expected, this removes sway and stabilizes the towing experience. While that is ok, this also transfers vibrations and bumps encountered from road conditions, that are normally mitigated by shock absorbers, directly into the ride experience. But due to the tough rubber composition, this is minimized. Be aware, however, that loads directly transmitted to the rear tires without shock reduction can increase the stress on them resulting in a higher potential for damage if they are older. Might accompany this product with fresh tires.




by:
Chevrolet Silverado 2500

The Timbrens gave me about 1/2" lift assistance with a 2200# load in my Chevy 2500 pickup. I recently changed to a 5th wheel with 2500# hitch weight. I was very pleased that the Timbrens where sufficient to keep the truck level and I did not need to install air bags. This is my second set of Timbrens. The first I bought at a local shop and had them install them. I bought the latest set from etrailer, and they were very easy to install, and I saved about 30%.




by:

My truck is a 3/4 ton. I basically turned it into a one ton. With super springs and shocks.
I also installed Timbren Rear suspension system. It works great when hauling heavy loads
8000 lbs +. So it was good investment I'm very pleased.
