An example of sag on a truck's rear axle under a heavy load. The Timbren Suspension Enhancement System levels the vehicle.

Whether you're hauling heavy loads in the cargo area or by pulling a trailer, you will often see the rear sag while the front end rises. In these cases, the rear axle is handling not only the weight of the cargo, but more of the truck's weight, as well. 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 has a custom-fit bracket that will be bolted onto each frame rail above the rear axle. Hollow rubber springs are bolted to the bottom of the bracket and hang down to where the bottom of the spring sits, one inch 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.


Animation 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 the truck level.


Timbren suspension system works to prevent body roll

Each hollow rubber spring works independently to support the driver's 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.


An example of a trailers swaying

Because the 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 the truck. This also works to make the sway subside more quickly.


An empty truck on a bumpy road without Timbren

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.


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.

I don't know what I thought this was, but, it definitely was not that. In my mind, this is just a fancy spring stop that replaces the one supplied by the manufacturer. Because of the thickness, my truck bottomed out more and quicker than with the factory stops. I had in my head (from reading from others) that this would help the suspension softness. It did not.
I ended up putting airbags on the truck. It had weaker springs due to age (2005 model) and the stop would not help that. The airbags were a blessing. They eliminated the too-soft ride. Had I put the airbags on first, I doubt I would have ever put this product on. (Although we did find out that the factory stops were worn out and needed replacement.)
I can not, and will not, degrade this product as it is well made and it was exactly as it was advertised. It just was not the product that I needed. Make sure what you need BEFORE you buy.


Comments
The Timbren springs will be more robust and larger then the factory stops. This means when the truck is unloaded and the truck goes over bumps, the springs will hit the frame quicker which can make a rougher ride for some. Air bags are a good alternative if this would be bothersome.

The overload boosters made a big difference in my truck’s ability to handle a truck bed camper. Works well!




by:

Truck rides like a go-cart after installation. The ses is resting on the axle when truck is unloaded. Not happy at all.


Comments
There should be about 1 inch to 1 and a half inch of space between the axle and spring when the 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 is unloaded. You can achieve this by removing the spacer. That will improve the ride quality.

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


The hardest part was the de-installation of the factory bump stop. Installation of the Timbren’s was simple and easy.

My truck is 2008 F250 V10 Crew Cab 4x4 with factory overload springs. I have a B&W fifth wheel & gooseneck hitch installed. I did notice the difference in towing my 34’ fifth wheel trailer. The ride and handling was improved. I would recommend them.

Review from a similar Timbren Aeon Spring System in Vehicle Suspension


About a 1/2 inch difference in gap at the bump stop perch but still within parameters. Truck sits perfect with trailer attached. Haven’t towed yet. After towing if they perform like they should will upgrade to a 5 star. Easy to install, definitely needed 2x4 and jack. 2011 Silverado ext cab with 30 ft Genisis 5th wheel.

  • Timbren Suspension Enhancement for a 2008 Chevy Silverado with a 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch
    The Timbren system, # TGMRTT15S, installs on the bottom of the frame. As long as the 5th wheel bracket does not wrap around to the bottom of the frame it will not interfere. Timbren lists this kit as a fit for service vehicles only. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you to view. For a non-service vehicle, use # TGMRTT15S. It installs the same way and will not interfere. I have linked instructions for this kit as well as a link to our FAQ article on Timbren systems...

  • What is the Warranty on the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System
    The warranty of this Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System # TGMRTT15S is for the lifetime of your vehicle as long as your vehicle is under normal use. It is hard to say exactly how long it would take for you to install the # TGMRTT15S on your 2011 CHevy Silverado, but after looking at the instructions I would imagine it would not take you more than an hour as long as you have basic mechanical skills and access to tools.

  • Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for 2017 Sierra Towing Fifth Wheel Trailer
    For your 2017 GMC Sierra 1500 towing a fifth wheel trailer the best option we have for suspension enhancement is the Timbren kit part # TGMRTT15S as it will provide you with an additional 7,000 lbs of suspension support when needed. The air bag kits for your truck aren't designed for fitting with an in-bed fifth wheel or gooseneck hitch so I would not recommend that route.

  • Why Would Trailer Brakes Lock Up When Running Lights are On
    There's a short on your trailer wiring between the running light circuit and the brake output circuit that runs to the trailer brakes. Look for exposed wire or corrosion on the wiring and connectors and you'll find the short. Rear suspenion enhancement like the Timbren kit part # TGMRTT15S would be a great way to help with towing. It will give more more support to the rear suspension to allow it to tow level.

    The difference between the two Timbren Suspension Enhancement Kits that fit your 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 is that the Timbren # TGMRCK15S are designed to support daily driver trucks for towing and heavier loads, while the other option, part # TGMRTT15S, is designed for service vehicles like a tow truck.

  • Difference Between Timbrens TGMRCK15S & TGMRTT15S For 2017 & 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500
    So to answer your first question, both of these Timbrens will fit on both a 2017 and 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500 (so long as your truck does not have the Adaptive Ride Control). The biggest difference is what type of vehicle they are designed for. The # TGMRTT15S is designed for service or work vehicles (like tow trucks, for example) and are much stiffer than needed for a standard passenger pick-up truck. So what I assume you have, and can use on both trucks, are the Timbren Rear Suspension...

  • Best Timbren Suspension Enhancement For 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500
    The Timbren # TGMRTT15S is for service vehicles such as tow trucks; they are very stiff and for a standard 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500 truck that is for towing, you definitely don't want to use those.

    For your 2011 Chevy Silverado I recommend starting with the RoadActive Suspension Kit # RAS4611 that you mentioned by itself to see how everything handles when pulling your 34 foot trailer. It wouldn't necessarily be "overkill" to add the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System # TGMRTT15S (the two components can indeed be used together) but maybe more accurate to say that the Timbrens might not really be utilized if the RAS is doing its job.
