I just ordered a set of Timbrens for my truck. If you want free shipping you have to type free shipping on the order form where it says coupon. I had to call to get this information. I sure hope they help.

It is a rubber overload spring. My truck settles about 4 inches when the fiver is hooked to it. It suppose to be easy to install and cheaper than air bags. It also does not affect the ride with truck is empty.

They should be here next week and in Jan. we are going to Miss. and Florida. After this trip I should know. The truck and trailer do fine unless the road is bad. I am hoping that this will help. I am getting a lot of cars at night wanting me to dim my allready dim lights. I don't expect it to ride like a car.

It looks like all I have to do is take the axel stop off the frame and they go there. I may put them on tomorrow, but will not know how they are until I put the fiver on it.

I got the Timbrens on the truck today. It was not a bad job. The exhaust got in the way some on the right side. On my 2500 Chevy I did not need the spacer and I got one inch clearance between the axel and the Timbrems. I have taken the truck out of the garage yet and really won't be able to tell anything until I hook the fiver up.

I have now used the Timbrens on a trip to Mississippi and then to Florida and back around 2400 miles. They seem to take some of the pitching out of the truck on bad roads but the ride is about the same. I am not having the flashing of headlights thinking I am on bright. The truck settles two inches instead of the four it was doing. I think they are worth what I paid for them
