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.

Delivered a day early, easy installation, just what I was after for my 2010 2500,with a leveling kit 63 gal auxiliary tank,generator, tools, and the like in the bed,probably 1000 pounds or so,300 or so behind the center of the rear axel, not so much by choice just the way it had to be ,these got rid of that annoying little squat,much more satisfied with the stance with the tongue weight on it,easy order easy delivery , you can see the before and after, awesome product!!




by:

The Timbren Suspension rubber mounts work great! Easy to install. The system only works when there is a load on the truck. It keeps my in bed camper from rocking. No air bags to fill no compressor to install. Simple system that works.


Comments
Good system! Simple and it works for my application! I have an 825 Lance in bed camper and I haul a 19’ Thunderjet boat the overloads reduce any sway and make for a comfortable ride

I have driven cross country a number of times with my 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 since installing for my 10000GVW gooseneck trailer.
Has leveled my truck when pulling. Only drawback is the ride is a little stiffer when unloaded, but is a small sacrifice




by:

Easy to install. Search for [online] videos for tips and the proper 15mm ratcheting wrench to buy. Reduces rear end sag when loading the 5th wheel from about 2" to about 1" and makes the ride smoother. I did remove the rear wheels to install these. Easier that way.




by:
2003 Dodge Ram Pickup

I have had these installed for a year now and they are great!! Installation was very easy, instructs were clear and easy to follow. I have towed our 5th wheel numerous times and it makes a big difference - the truck handles well and stays level when loaded. No air lines or air pumps to mess with - I don't even know they are there when I am not towing. I would highly recommend these.




by:

These went on my 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 4WD. Passanger side installed smooth but on the driver side I had one bolt twisted off as i was removing the bump stop, and the second bolt had no usable threads. So they both got drilled out and tapped new threads. I installed the timbrens and that left about a 1 inch space to the axle. Went and got my first load of plywood today and they worked great! It only took about 20 sheets of 1/4 inch plywood to get the suspension on the timberns, the ride was pretty good with no sag.

Works great on my 2006 dodge pulling my trailer with side by side in back of truck

I have a 5th wheel camper with a pin weight of approx 1800 lbs. It made the rear of my 3/4 ton pickup squat more than I thought it would. After much research, I decided to try these. They have excellent ratings everywhere I look. Guys (and gals) rave about them in the towing forums that I frequent. Delivery from etrailer was fast. I was able to install them in about 20 minutes flat. HINT - I sprayed the nuts and bolts that fastened the original bumps stops to the frame several days before expected delivery with PB Blaster to make removal a breeze. These along with some new heavy duty shocks and my truck is towing the 5th wheel level and like a boss.




by:
2012 Dodge Ram Pickup

I ordered a pair of rear axle Timbrens for my new Ram 2500 as I plan to buy a 5th wheel and tour the US in my retirement. To me, the Timbrens are preferable to adding air bags or beefing up my leaf springs or shocks since they only "work" when you are loaded allowing you to keep your normal unloaded ride quality when not towing. e trailer's price, service and follow-up was great and I had the Timbrens installed and ready to roll 30 minutes after delivery.

2004 Dodge Ram Pickup

I had watched the installation video so that i would have a idea how they went on well I was supprised I didnt have to raise the truck at all just went under removed bump stops found out that I didnt need the spacer bolted them up to the truck and was finshed in about a half hour. havent hauled anything yet or hooked up to camp trailer so dont know just how they will work but have read good reviews on camp trailer fourms so thought I would give them a try.

Good product. Received 1 day earlier than expected. I watched the video before ordering so when I got the product it only took 45 min to install, adjust, and clean up. As always Etrailer had what I wanted when I wanted it and great shipping and cost. I have ordered in the past and will order again.

2006 Dodge Ram Pickup

Just finished installing my Timbren RSE system. Install was easy and went very well. I had both of them in place in 60 minutes. Would have gone faster if the instructions would have been clearer about assembly of the rubber suspension unit to the mounting plate. The pre-tapped bolt hole in the mounting plate is similar to a lock nut and the bolt does not easily turn, even with a half inch drive. You will have to lock the plate into a vice in order to turn the bolt until it locks. There is a lot of resistance but keep turning until the bolt locks up. Other than that, the unit easily replaces the factory bumpers. Took the truck for a test drive and couldn't believe the ride, and this is without the trailer hooked up. Can't wait to hook up the fiver and check out the new suspension.


Comments
After a full summer of pulling my 5th wheel trailer I can factually say the ride of my truck dramatically improved! My wife noticed the difference too and commented on how much smoother everything feels. Im also convinced the smoother ride will reduce wear and tear on the springs, shocks and axel. The Timbren RSE should be standard on all trucks. Buy this product and you wont be disappointed.

Talked to Cathy T who was very friendly and was able to answer my questions and concerns( went into this being skeptical) Cathy assured me that etrailer was a customer orientated company so decided to take a shot, recieved product 1 day earlier than expected which was a nice surprise,as far as installation it was as advertised took less than 30min and was very easy (tip run bolt on open slotted end (back)most of the way in then slide in it will make it easier to tighten bolt) have not towed 5er to see how they actually work did raise the rear of truck 08 ram2500 td did not end up with any clearance but it does say in instructions that medium and heavy duty trucks will stay in contact feel like they will do the job. Will definitely recommend and make further orders from etrailer thanks

Have you towed yet?
-- comment by: Ken - 09/23/2015
Ken have not had a chance to tow 5er on the road yet,I did have to move it in the storage lot from one spot to another and am impressed that my truck stayed level I looked at the timbrens with the 5er hooked up and they were compressed some should have taken pic the tongue weight according to the website is aroond 1800 its a montana 3400rl hope this helps some, will update after towing waiting to mount new tires also bought from etrailer the provider G rated and has an L speed rating tire they are definitely heavy duty trailer tires and just from looking at them and picking up would say they are a good tire after some mileage will be the true test

Holding up well under heavy loads and reduces vehicle rolls around curves and corners. Would buy again for another vehicle. Make sure the other suspension parts are in good repair too. This doesn't replace good having good springs and shocks.

Still holding up well. Glad I got them!!

Product works. Basically these are axle bump stops with compressability . When installing set the gap to about 1.5 inches. Too small of a gap and you will get a stiff bump when the springs flex to close this gap when lightly loaded. Under heavy load the gap is closed and the Timbrens assist the springs. They are fairly stiff and limit both roll and bounce. Not as good as air bags,but much simpler. I found adding an extra leaf in the spring bundle made a best compliment to the Timbrens as the original rear leaf springs on my 07 Ram wer a bit too flexible for a heavy (1000 lbs tongue) weight. This is the simple solution; if you want total control and variable ride settings between heavy and lighter, then air bags with onboard compressor and in cockpit controller are better (at the cost of $$$ and complications) . Also i think the Timbrens are as good or better in heavy loaded "ROLL" as they are both in contact in heavy loaded conditions and quite stiff.

Consider also your rear tire selection when towing heavy (6K+); you should choose "E" rated tires 80 psi max, but run at 50/60 psi lightly loaded. The "E" rated tires will dramatically reduce Sway.

Installed on a 2010 Dodge 2500. I pull a Toy Hauler travel trailer which has a heavy tongue weight. The Timbrens level out the truck and seem to improve the ride while towing,

Hi all, Etrailer has been my go to for about 10 years and their products have always exceeded my expectations.

No different this time. I used these on a 2004 Dodge 1500two wheel drive with a Hemi. I recently purchased a slide in pop-up camper that weighs 1200lbs my may payload is 1700 lbs. Anyway, with the camper in when I hit a bump the vehicle would oscillate or bounce about 5 times before settling. I was going to put in helper springs but figured I'd try these instead.

With the camper off I didn't have to use jacks at all. I first used the rubber bumpers only, and with the camper in, they touched the axle; however, there was no measurable difference in the ride. The gap between the bumper and the axle was just over 1.5" unloaded.

I put the spacers in and the gap was about 1/2" between the axle and the bumper. No noticeable difference unloaded; however, with the camper in there is no more oscillation. Also, there is no sway going around curves.

I just spent a long weekend road-tripping in West Virginia on some pretty narrow rough roads and these things performed brilliantly. I am not sure of their longevity--love them thus far.

Took about an 2 hours to take the old bumpers off and put the new ones on. Pretty basic installation. I am an RN not a mechanic.

2012 Dodge Ram Pickup

Bought these as a way of reducing the 3" sag I get when dropping the 3000lb 5th wheel hitch in the back of my 2012 Ram 3500 SRW 2WD
Fairly simple job to fit. I am a tall skinny guy so did not need to jack up the truck. Bump stops came off easy. The slots in the Timbren brackets could do with being 1/4" longer, I had the brackets as far forward as they would go and the Timbrens are only just central over the axle. The bolts at the rear of the bracket (the open sloted end) are tricky to get at (need a closed or open ended wrench) and if you have a 5th wheel hitch mounted to the frame close by (like I did) then you have even less room. Tip: Put the rear mounting bolts in first and slide the Timbren bracket in, that way you only have to cinch the bolt up.
Did not need the spacer and have about 3/4" clearance unloaded and do not notice any change in the ride unloaded. Have not yet hooked up the trailer so can't yet comment on how much the sag is reduced.




by:
2003 Dodge Ram Pickup

I put these on a 2003 Ram 2500 4x4 to take the sag out of the rear and smooth out the ride towing my new 5th wheel toy hauler. The Timbrens did just that, made for a lot nicer towing experience. Leveled the truck and took the bounce out. When I'm not towing with only one inch clearence between the Timbrens and the axle you can tell they are there on the rougher roads but most of the time you won't notice any ride difference. etrailer was great, and fast shipping.




by:
2012 Dodge Ram Pickup

After receiving item in mail all pieces were in the Box. I am by no means mechanically inclined and usually have a lot of problems but had these installed On my 2012 Dodge ram in about 35 minutes. Before hooking up to my 5th wheel RV measured 40 and a 1/2 inches from ground to top a will well in the rear and 38 and a 1/2 inches from ground to top will well in the front. After dropping 5th wheel on to truck remeasured and had 40" in the rear and the front remained the same. Ride was excellent and no bounce. Very very good product and I am very pleased with going with these instead of airbags. Would recommend them to anybody.

2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500

I have a 2005 Dodge 2500 5.7 hemi. I installed these in less then 30 Min. I pull a 36' camper with a hitch weight of 1820 lbs. Without these my truck sagged about 3 to 3.5", now I only see about a 1.5 to 2" sag. Truck is level while pulling. I can take 55 mile corners without feeling steering wheel fatigue. Keeps everything in sync. Love the way it handles the bumps as well. I will not ever have another truck without these!! love them! My son had his company install these in his Ford work van as he carries a lot of weight as well. He also swears by them.

2003 Dodge Ram Pickup

The Timbren set for my 03 Dodge Ram really helped my older suspension, that is also a work truck. I was very satisfied and had great feel when towing our 26' travel trailer. I have already recommended them to several people. Great option as opposed to installing leaf springs for a little extra support.




by:
2012 Dodge Ram Pickup

Put these on my 2012 Ram 2500. With the spacer, they sit off the axle about 1/2". Ride empty is unchanged, which is 3/4 ton stiff. These really help when loading up the bed with heavy loads, or when my gooseneck tongue might be a little overloaded. Go on very easy. I saved the original pads ( which are 4" above the axle) so when I sell/trade in my truck, I will retrieve these to use on my newer one. Highly recommend.

  • Quarter Inch Play in Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System
    I spoke with my contact at Timbren and he said more than likely you have not tightened the bolts all the way. He said you are probably hitting the locking mechanism of the lock nut, so you will want to keep tightening the bolts until the gap is reduced to zero.

  • Does Timbren Kit for 2004 Dodge Ram Increase Towing Capacity
    The Timbren kit part # TDR2500CA which you referenced has a capacity of 6,000 lbs as a pair. They are not rated at 6,000 lbs per spring. This does not increase your truck's overall towing capacity. Basically it gives you more suspension support to allow you to carry the capacity of your truck in a safer way. Towing capacities are more than just suspension. You also have to consider the engine's power, transmission strength, frame strength, braking power etc.

Since a camper is pretty much a static load (does not vary greatly in size or shape) going with rubber springs or leaf springs would be the way to go. My top choice is a Timbren system, # TDR2500CA. These springs are going to help stabilize and level the truck, reduce road shock and side to side roll. They have a high 6,000...

  • Which Timbren Kit for 2004 Dodge Ram 2500 Towing 12.5k Trailer
    For your 2004 Dodge Ram 2500 I would recommend the Timbren kit part # TDR2500CA which will provide you with an additional 6,000 lbs of support to the rear suspension. The heavy duty kit part # T94VR that you also referenced is a fit for your truck but it's going to be overkill for your truck and would give you a harsh ride. This kit should really only be used on trucks that will be at their towing capacity most of the time. The additional support of the lighter duty kit will be very helpful...

  • Which Timbren Rear Kit the 6k OR 8k for my 2011 Ram 2500 Mega Cab Towing 10-14k lbs.?
    In your case I really like the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System part # T94VR these have the 8K capacity which will help to take a lot of the stress and strain off of that rear suspension set up. Towing 10-14k can cause wear issues relatively quickly and these will do a great job reducing that drastically for you. If you were in the 5-10k or lower towing range I would lean to the lighter versions part # TDR2500CA these also do a great job of taking the abuse so the suspension...

  • Timbren Suspension Enhancement System for 2007 Ram 1500 To Reduce Rear Sag
    Timbren jounce springs are a great option for your 2007 Ram 1500 with a little rear sag when towing. They are designed to give additional support by becoming more rigid as more weight is added. This means the empty ride of the vehicle shouldn't be impacted but the ride under load will reduce sag, increase stability and reduce body roll. If you have a mega cab model you will want # TDR2500CA designed specifically for that model. If you have any other model, then you instead will use...

  • Comparing The Air Lift LoadLifter vs Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement Systems
    For your 2012 Ram 2500, you are correct that either suspension enhancement system will work. However there are major differences between them functionally. The Timbren system # TDR2500CA is a very solid jounce spring. It is a strong Aeon hollow rubber spring that is a very easy installation. It is not adjustable, and there is no maintenance. The only down side to these is that they can engage on large bumps when the truck is unloaded. This gives you a decent kick because the springs...

  • Timbren Suspension Kit Recommendation for 2007 Dodge Ram 2500 with 4 inch Lift
    The Timbren kit part # TDR2500CA is the correct kit to use on your 2007 Dodge Ram 2500, but you may also need lift spacers depending on your lift type. Since you have a 4 inch lift most likely you have a suspension lift and you would need a total of 8 of the part # A25723-90AH00 to make up for the additional space. These are 1 inch spacers and you would need 4 for each side. You would need to provide a longer bolt too as we don't carry that. If your lift is a body lift instead then no...

  • Recommended Suspension Enhancement to Improve Ride and Sag on 2012 Ram 2500
    Since one of your goals is to reduce sag I suggest the Timbren system. The TorkLift StableLoad # TLA7311 is mainly for creating smoother ride and to avoid sway and body roll. The Timbren springs will help with sag while towing and won't affect the ride of your 2012 Ram 2500 when it's not loaded. They become more rigid as the load increases to help prevent the truck from sagging. They also work independently to help with uneven loads that improves the overall ride and helps body roll,...
