Note: The Timbren Axle-Less suspension system may require additional support on your trailer. If your trailer does not have a crossmember above the spot where you want to install the Timbren system, you may need to reinforce the frame. You can accomplish this three ways. First, you can retrofit the trailer with a crossmember. Second, you can build out the trailer frame. Third, you can use standard, 2-inch steel tubing to connect the 2 Timbren suspensions together using the built-in square hole on each unit.


Ground Clearance

Ride on rubber with Timbren's Axle-Less trailer suspension system. This one-of-a-kind suspension consists of two separate units, each containing rugged steel arms and two strong, hollow rubber springs. Overall, the system safely and effectively absorbs road shock, minimizes trailer bounce and rattle - regardless of load size - and helps to protect your trailer's components and cargo. Built-in camber and toe-in keep your trailer tracking straight to minimize tire wear. Integrated hangers attach to your trailer's frame. And 2-inch holes make it easy to reinforce your trailer's frame by adding standard, 2-inch-square steel tubing (if needed).


The Axle-Less independent suspension system replaces your trailer's existing leaf spring suspension and can eliminate the need for an axle. The independent action of the suspension reduces roll when your trailer is cornering and allows you to maximize ground clearance and minimize deck height. Your trailer can have the same side-to-side clearance as your tow vehicle. And the low deck height makes it easy to load cargo from either the rear or the side.


Because you're riding on rubber, your trailer will ride smoothly and comfortably, whether you're navigating rocky terrain or highway asphalt.


Timbren Axle-Less Suspension Parts

Components

  1. The AEON progressive-rate main spring supports the weight of your trailer and cargo and easily absorbs road shock. It is constructed of heavy-duty, hollow rubber.
  2. The rebound spring minimizes trailer bounce, rattle and bottoming out. It keeps the suspension under constant tension and ensures that the main spring compresses and expands in a controlled fashion. And it delivers a smooth, stable ride - regardless of how much cargo is on the trailer.
  3. The trailing arm and integrated hanger attach the suspension to the side and bottom of the trailer frame.
  4. The control arm carries the spindle and the hub. It pivots on strong, long-lasting urethane bushings that never require lubrication.
  5. The EZ lube spindle is simple to grease. If damaged, it can be removed and replaced, saving you both time and money.
  6. The hub is not included with this model.
  7. The built-in square hole accepts standard 2-inch tubing. If there is no crossmember above the suspension, you can easily add support to your trailer's frame by inserting 2-inch steel tubing through the hole on each suspension unit and then bolting the tubing into place.

Timbren Axle-Less Suspension versus Leaf Springs

Leaf Spring Example

The Axle-Less suspension's progressive spring is a definitive upgrade over leaf springs. Although leaf springs deliver a stable ride when supporting a load, a trailer with leaf springs will bounce and rattle when it's empty or supporting a light or off-center load. On the other hand, your trailer can bottom out on bumpy roads if the load is too heavy. The AEON progressive-rate springs of the Axle-Less suspension always deliver the same reliable performance, no matter the load size. As more weight is added to the trailer, the springs compress and become stiffer, offering more support for heavy loads. And because they rebound more slowly than leaf springs, the AEON springs do a better job of absorbing road shock, thereby keeping your trailer from bouncing and rattling when you're carrying a light load. So with this versatile system you will enjoy a smooth ride whether you're towing an empty trailer or a hefty load.


Unlike leaf springs, Timbren's Axle-Less suspension units operate independently of one another. Each spring activates only when needed. This reduces roll and delivers top-notch performance, even when you're hauling off-center loads. When your trailer with leaf springs takes a turn, one side of the suspension compresses and takes on more weight, and the other side becomes looser and bounces. This causes rattle and can make the trailer lean to one side. But when your trailer with the Axle-Less suspension takes a turn, one side compresses and becomes more rigid to absorb the weight, and the other side expands to normal height to help steady the load and minimize bounce and rattle. The load stays better balanced, even if it is off-center.


Timbren Axle-Less Suspension versus Torsion Axles

Torsion Axle Example

Timbren's Axle-Less trailer suspension system is a great alternative to torsion axles. While both systems allow either side of the trailer's suspension to operate independently, only Axle-Less suspensions are actually separate units. Torsion axles still require a bar that spans the bottom of your trailer, whereas Timbren's system can eliminate the need for a thru axle - giving you the same amount of ground clearance from the front of your trailer to the rear. It also allows Axle-Less suspensions to fit any trailer width - unlike torsion axles, which have to be fitted to an exact frame width.


Axle-Less suspensions operate in a smoother, less stressful manner than torsion axles. Torsion axles use a twisting motion, where the bar inside the axle tube rolls against rubber cords or a rubber wall to create compression and resistance. The up-and-down motion of the main spring and the side-to-side motion of the rebound spring in Timbren's Axle-Less suspension work together to provide smooth, consistent compression - with no twisting - that results in a better ride and less stress on the suspension's components.


Installing the Timbren Axle-Less Suspension

Whether you are building a trailer or retrofitting your existing trailer with the Axle-Less system, you must make certain that the trailer's frame is both perfectly square and sturdy enough to support a heavy load without the aid of a thru axle.


Install Option 1

There are three ways to install the Axle-Less suspension. The easiest method, which is recommended if you are replacing axles on your trailer, is to install a piece of 2-inch-square tubing (sold separately - available at most weld shops) through the integrated hole in the Axle-Less suspension. Then all you need to do is bolt the suspension to the side of the trailer's frame with three bolts (not included).


Install Option 2

The second option for installation is to fabricate an inboard extension plate that attaches the trailer's frame to the Axle-Less suspension.


Install Option 3

The third method of installation is to bolt the Axle-Less suspension's hanger to the trailer's frame and to an existing crossmember that is in the area where you want to install the suspension.


With both the second and third options, you must use three bolts to attach the suspension to the side of the frame. And you also have to use two or three bolts to attach the suspension to the bottom of the frame extension, or crossmember. Both the second and third methods of installation will eliminate the need for a thru axle and provide the most clearance.


Measuring Diagram

Timbren's Axle-Less suspension units should be installed directly across from one another. Before mounting the units, measure back from the coupler and mark the frame to make sure that the two distance measurements (A and B) are within 1/8 inch of each other. Then you can drill holes through the frame and attach the hangers with Grade-5, half-inch bolts (not included).

Well this is the 6th time that you have left out a part of the suspension we order. Luckily you've fixed the situation and have told me you'd ship out replacements. But I shouldn't have to worry about getting partial shipments from you. Its an unneeded headache




by:

I found etrailer.com looking for these. A very knowledgeable gentleman helped me select the proper self-adjusting brakes and drums for the axles I bought.




by:

Have not installed yet. Product arrived well packaged and undamaged. Appears to be very heavy duty and well built. The reason I'm only giving 4 stars is the finish on the spindle seal surface leaves much to be desired. As it is, I don't think it would take long for the seal to fail. It's nothing that a fine file and 600 grit sand paper won't take care of which I will do. It just irks me when I have to rework careless workmanship. Especially when I'm spending $[XX]. Will update after I do my installation.




by:

The customer service has been excellent with Etrailer!!! I got to work with Anna and she did a great job on my order. The product seems to be great, just as Timbren stated. It went together very well on the trailer that I'm building. I can't wait to finish this project and be rolling into the backcountry and staying for a few days.

Review from a similar Axle-Less Suspension in Trailer Axles


The trailer rides great down the road and no more worries about saltwater and rusty leaf springs. Not a cheap option but I’m very happy with the setup. When installing, just be sure to measure accurately and have sharp drill bits. A drill press type of guide also helps ensure correct drilling angles. The first picture is of a mounting gusset a local welding shop made. One is needed for each side and necessary to provide needed mounting strength-at least on my trailer frame. Pics 2 and 3 show the mounted suspension on one side of the trailer. Pic 4 shows the suspension on one side of the trailer with the axle attached and a separately purchased disc brake assembly mounted on it. Finally, pic 5 shows a 2” box channel between both suspension assemblies. Independent suspensions would have been nice, but I wanted to ensure trailer rigidity was maintained. So, after one year, so far, so good. It’s all smooth sailing down the highway.

Actually over a year, and still working great.

Review from a similar Axle-Less Suspension in Trailer Axles


I installed these on my single axle travel trailer to replace the axle and leaf springs. Weight savings was a wash with the required steel tube for added stability. I installed on an I-Beam using aluminum plate as a spacer. It took my friend and I 3 days to install everything. The hardest part was rerouting my black pipe propane line. I also had to install it just back of center due to a steel cross beam being in the way of the middle bolt hole. I replaced the brakes and hubs as well as the wheels to match the new hubs.

Overall we've been super happy with this upgrade. The trailer rides a lot smoother. I'm not finding random screws on the floor after a long bump ride.

We decided to do this after our leaf spring broke 2 times, 12k miles between. We were done dealing with a subpar suspension. I probably would not recommend doing this if your leaf springs are working for you. We put a lot of miles on our trailer. We aren't weekend campers.


Comments
1 year later still working great! Very happy with the performance. We have driven at least 20k miles with these springs and have not had a single issue. I also am happy I upgraded weight limits on everything.

Incredible system. Handled our Overland trek through Colorado and Moab. These axles on our 1917 Ford bed ran multiple Jeep Badge of Honor trails. The suspension handled flawlessly. Handles off camber rocks and drop offs smoothly. We ran the 4 inch lift and off road offset to fit the factory Jeep wheels.

The axle-less suspension worked very well for my boat trailer. The suspension was easy to attach to the trailer frame and provided a lower profile than the traditional leaf spring and axle system.

Review from a similar Axle-Less Suspension in Trailer Axles


They have more pros than cons, but the second set I bought broke the flat plate that holds the spindle at about 8 months. The steel quality seemed less than I would expect since it basically peeled it back like a pop can as you can see in the pictures. Otherwise I like the clearance and ride. They last 2-3 years where the torsion axles I replaced would wear out in 4 months after driving down rough gravel roads. There is a grade zerk on the underside which I didn't realize until I bought the second set. That would have helped the first set last longer had I known about it.

Review from a similar Axle-Less Suspension in Trailer Axles


I used these axles in a different way than most would. I needed a trailer that was small, could handle tight switch-backs, carry 600 lbs and be light. I had this idea and as a retired design engineer I saw a great possibility in this axle. I have made four of these trailers now, one as a camp trailer, 2 for trail work for State Parks and one as a utility trailer.

Review from a similar Axle-Less Suspension in Trailer Axles


It was a very straight forward install, it goes pretty smooth if you take your time, double check your layout,

Make sure of your bolt sizes (length) before going to the store. If you plan the project, don’t rush, its not a race, it goes really good. I spent about 10 hours spread over two days by myself. I am just waiting for tires to arrive.



All that said very happy with the product and etrailer. Will recommend for any axel/suspension replacement.

Review from a similar Axle-Less Suspension in Trailer Axles


Purchased 2 sets of the Timbren 1200 Axle-less systems for upgrading the suspension on an older 30' ft glider trailer. Single axle with small (13") tires made towing tough due to porpoising, dragging on drive entrances do to poor flotation; also German made and metric, no repair parts. GVW 2000 lbs equated to bouncy ride.

Dual sets now allow the trailer to ride over bumps and sharp inclines easily, smoothly, little bounce on country roads; porpoising is history. My glider now rides securely, safely, quietly.

Install time 4 1/2 hours (includes head-scratching). Results are outstanding, units are totally solid. Recommend the square tube interconnect, easy and quick - trailer frame was on the light side, so a precautionary fix. Clean look underneath.

Ordered 5 wheels w/tires, very nice.

Helpful neighbor so impressed he ordered a HD single set for his new DIY snowmobile trailer.

Customer satisfaction 100%, from phone order, online support, product information, immediate shipping, install instructions, followup... HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!


Comments
I have just a little more to add regarding my purchase: Two sets, of the Timbren Axle-less assemblies, 1200 lb, and 5 wheels. I placed the order via phone, and whoever was on-call that day provided great answers and recommendations regarding the units, wheels and tires. At 31 feet, the trailer originally exhibited amplified porpoising on any bumps or dips in the road. Also bouncing and occasional sideways tipping due to the single axle. It made a lot of noise on my mountain community washboards. I speculated that the Timbren units would solve most, if not all of these problems and they have. Installation on my older 31 ft European ie, metric and no longer manufactured glider trailer was a mere 4.5 hours from removal of the old single axle to setting the trailer back down on its new assemblies. Instructions are complete, precise, useful and helpful. Appreciated. Little to comment on as installation was all straight-forward. I would like to describe the maiden voyage to the airport and back, but there is nothing to tell, other than it towed beautifully proper alignment instructions, and all that I viewed from the rear view mirror looked like a magic carpet ride. It rides over washboards and pot holes like a marathon hurdler, the 4-wheel independent suspension is great. Packaging: the shipping boxes all arrived in good condition, but the cardboard component boxes inside them... not so much. Most were ripped and open due to heavy components lightly surrounded with brown packing paper, just token amounts. Parts: all was accounted for minus a pair of spindle axle washers for one set, easily replaced at the local farm and ranch supply. No squawk, just an fyi. I am very pleased with your product and support, and was happy to leave a 5-star review with photos. The upgraded suspension was also a topic this past weekend at the glider port by those who regularly trailer their ships to various soaring events, some as far as a thousand miles away. My compliments to eTrailers, hope you can use my info,

Review from a similar Axle-Less Suspension in Trailer Axles


Pleased with ETRAILER, will order here again. Not as happy with the torsion axle setup. 2 inch square opening for tying both axles together with your own 2" square tubing are not shaped to match 2x2x1/8 tubing. Grinding and welding of tubing required to make it fit. Also found the overslung stub axle left the end of the pivot arm without much ground clearance though the unit was intended and spec'd for atv tire off road use. A pivot arm with mounting pads top and bottom would be better and allow the user to choose high or low clearance use. I found the units were perfectly suited to offroad use once I fabricated new mounting pads and welded them to the bottom of the arms.


Comments
After a year of off road use, I couldnt be happier. My trailer rides smooth loaded or unloaded. No of that bunny hopp with leaf springs or rigid mount axles. The small rebound control snubber works perfectly! I modified my components for high clearance but the concept is sound, they work well. Great job Timbren!

Review from a similar Axle-Less Suspension in Trailer Axles


Very exicited about these axels, I have been eyeing these for over a year. (Excellent service from etrailer, they had my parts to me in 1 day from the time of placing the order.) These axles seem to be well made and fit nicely with the Dexter hub and drum assembly and the 12" electric brake kit. I installed this all on a M1101/M1102 trailer frame after removing the factory axel assembly. I have not ran these on the road or off as of yet but will give another review at that time. The fit and finish are great and the packaging was good, a little banged up from shipping (missing 1 washer)

Review from a similar Axle-Less Suspension in Trailer Axles


Timbren saved our RV road trip! The leafs on the axle on our 2018 Jayco TT came apart while driving in Maryland. We tried going to the manufacturer, but they were useless. Going to a RV mechanic meant being grounded for at least 2 months. Then we found Timbren. With the help of Timbren's excellent staff we purchased axle-less system through etrailer, who made sure we got as quick as possible. It came ahead of schedule, my husband installed the Timbren system and we were back on the road! The axle-less system is better than the original manufacturers. If you plan on taking your RV or TT farther than 100 miles GET THIS INSTALLED and get it through etrailer.

Review from a similar Axle-Less Suspension in Trailer Axles


I am not a mechanic so Brandi was real helpful. Had to get some professional help to remove the old suspension and install the new suspension. The only drawback we ran into was the spindle did not extend out far enough to mount the tires in the normal way. We had to put the tires on backwards. It all worked out beautifully. Towed the trailer for over 1700 miles without any problems. Brandi was delightful to talk with and very patient with me. Her help was most appreciated. Sorry, I didn't take any pictures.

Review from a similar Axle-Less Suspension in Trailer Axles


The order came in on time and the customer service at etrailer.com (Ashley) and Sean from Tmbren was outstanding. They both were very helpful in my choosing the right product for my needs. The axle less suspension's performance is absolutely superb. It vastly improves ride quality. I am using it on a teardrop camper that often goes on gravel roads and the raddling sound from the leaf axles was horrible. A couple of points to consider before you settle on the axle less suspension: keep in mind that you will lose some hight of the trailer. While you will gain clearance from the lack of the axle, the suspension will make the trailer sit lower than before.i had to lower my hitch by an inch to maintain the trailer leveled. Also it does appear to compress at higher rate than the leaf springs, which makes it softer but easier to reach it's limit. Overall this product is absolutely a must if you are looking to improve the safety and the quality of your towing.

    I would not trust the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System ASR1200S01 to be used as an overlanding trailer with those large jeep wheels. I have included a picture that shows what I believe to be a failure point with this suspension. With that narrow point I would fear that a large bump may cause it to bend with the weight and larger wheels. I recommend the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System # ASR1THDS02. It has a higher weight capacity at 2,200lbs and larger axle spindles....

  • Timbren Axle-Less Suspension Compatible with Hubs That Have 6 on 5-1/2 Inch Bolt Pattern
    In order to use the # 84655UC1-EZ hub with the desired 6 on 5-1/2 bolt pattern, you'd need to use a Timbren Axle-Less suspension that has spindles compatible with a L68149 inner/L44649 outer wheel bearing like # ASR1THDS02. The hubs have a 3500 lb capacity, but the capacity will be limited by the 2200 lb capacity of the Timbren suspension.

  • Idler Hub Recommendation with 5 on 4-1/2 inch Bolt Pattern for a Timbren Axle Less ASR1THDS02
    Just because the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System # ASR1THDS02 has brake mounting flanges does not mean you have to run hub/drums on them. You can install idler hubs on the spindles just fine. For an idler hub that would fit the spindles that has a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern you would want the part # 8-248-50. Everything you mentioned to mount the hub on the spindle comes with the spindle. The Timbren would get bolted or welded to the trailer frame. Welding should be done...

  • Recommended Axle-less System For Home-Made Off-Road Trailer
    You will first need to know what the trailer is rated for. You can run into the problem just as you stated. If you get a heavier system on the trailer and carry much less weight it can bounce when on the trail. I have a solution that will work for you. For ease of installation and capacity I recommend an axle-less system like part # ASR1THDS02. This system bolts onto the frame and eliminates the axle beam as well as leaf springs and the hardware. This system has a 2,200-lb capacity and...

  • Timbren Wide Tire Axle Less System that Fits Dexter Hub Kits K71-510-00 and K71-511-00 10
    The hub you have is basically the part # 84546UC3-EZ which means that for a Timbren axle less system that would work with them you would need the part # ASR2KHDS02 that has the brake mounting flanges that match the assemblies you have and a spindle that will fit the hub.

  • Timbren Axle Less Recommendation that Allows 6 on 5-1/2 inch Bolt Pattern to Install
    I have a solution for you, but it will require you to go up to the 3,500 lb version of the Timbren. For that you would want the # ASR35HDS02 and then for hubs part # AKIHUB-655-6-K. These hubs have the 6 on 5-1/2 inch bolt pattern you need.

  • What is Needed to Convert Oil Bath Hub to Grease and Also Pick Out Replacement Spindle
    In general you don't have to do anything to your current setup to convert it to grease aside from just remove all of the oil and replace it with grease. The oil seals will work just fine with grease instead so all you need is hub grease like the LMX Red part # L11390 and you'd be set. Since your spindles are shot though I will need to know more info to pick out the correct replacements. Use a digital caliper like the part # PTW80157 to measure the spindle you have where the bearings and...

  • Could Timbren Axle Less Kit Fit Triton Elite 101 Trailer
    The Timbren axle less kit part # ASR1THDS02 that you referenced can install be bolting to the trailer frame or by welding to it. It is compatible with the Triton Elite 101 trailer frame you have as well. As long as your trailer had 3,500 lb axle hubs on it prior they would transfer to this kit as well. Otherwise you'd need new hub/drums with the part # 84546UC3-EZ. Your spindle would need to have had a diameter of 1.378 and 1.063 inch for the current hubs to fit the Timbren.

  • Trailer Axle Compatibility with 5 on 5 Inch Hubs for Trailer Upgrade
    For your trailer you will actually need to change out your axles. The spindles you mentioned are not compatible with any of the 5 on 5 inch hubs. All of the options for the 5 on 5 inch hub assemblies are for 3,500 lb axles with # L68149 inner bearings and # L44649 outer bearing. I've linked the page to all your options to assist. Then I've linked the page to all your axles that are compatible and you will want to determine the hub to hub dimension required as well as your spring seat...

  • Timbren Axleless Suspension System for 265/75R16 Tires.
    The Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System part # ASR2000S02 states "regular" as opposed to "off road". The off road version part # ASR1THDS02 has more distance between the hub face and the frame of the trailer. These are very popular with the off road camper that have larger 31" x 10.5" or 33" x 12.5" type tires. With your tire size of 265/75R16 that means you have 31.65" x 10.43" tires with that said the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System - Spindle w/Brake Flange - Off-Road...

  • Replacement Axle System For a Yacht Club Snowmobile Trailer With 5 on 4-1/2" Bolt Pattern.
    I have an option for you as we do not carry torsion axles. The Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System # ASR1THDS02 will bolt to your frame rails and includes the suspension along with a spindle. To this spindle you will be able to add 2 of the Easy Grease Trailer Idler Hub Assemblies # AKIHUB-545-35-EZ-K to have your 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern. Do note that these hubs will stick out 8-1/2" from your frame to the hub face and your current hubs are only 7" on each side. The suspension...

  • Jeep Wheel Compatibility with Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System
    Jeep wheels have the 5 on 5 inch bolt pattern and we do have hubs that fit the Axle-Less Systems and your Jeep wheels. It is recommended to use trailer wheels with trailer hubs because of the zero offset and tire design, but people have been using Jeep wheels especially for off-road trailers for years so we know they can work. We only have a couple compatibles option for that size hub. You will want the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System - 4" Lift Spindle w/Flange - Off-Road...

  • Recommended Replacement Boat Trailer Axle and Suspension
    For your system due to the unique width, I recommend the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System - 2,200 lbs # ASR1THDS02. This system has the integrated suspension and just needs a 2 inch square tube (not included) to fit into the integrated holes of the assemblies. For galvanized hubs, you can use the 5 bolt # AKIHUB-545-35-G-EZ-K. If you trailer is much larger, then let me know what you have and I can give you the more compatible load capacity. Normally the 60 inch boat trailer...
