Timbren rubber springs just replace the OEM rubber stops.
I prefer SUMO Springs which do alot more with suspension. They are not made of rubber and do not require removing the OEM stops. SUMO also reduces body roll and sway. SuperSprings Self-Adjusting Suspension Stabilizers

Several years ago I put them on the front axle of a 1991 Safari Trek (Isuzu chassis) and I was not impressed with the results. Just my opinion.

I put them on the rear of a pickup truck once. They worked great while towing my trailer but beat me to death when the truck was empty. On a motorhome they may work differently but I would sooner spend money on air bags that you can adjust the pressure.

Timbren

I have not noted any difference in empty ride with the Timbrens but they they did wonders for the ride and handling with my heavy 5th wheel. (F350)
