Does Timbren Kit for 2004 Dodge Ram Increase Towing Capacity

Question:

Ok so this is more a general question, Im getting timbren installed tommorow, Im wondering each one has a 6k lb capacity each? Which ones Im getting was told were 6k. Also was wondering does that add to my trucks tow capacity? I do know not to exceed capacity just trying to figure out how it adds to capacity exactly. Sorry if this question makes 0 sense.

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.
