I had a real problem with the ass end of my truck sagging while hooked up, put some Timbrens on it, and it really picked it up in the rear. Seems like a little more rough ride now, anyone have these installed, and alter the ride any?

I installed timbrens on my 2002F350, they really helped in keeping the truck level side to side along with handling the pin weight on the 36SK. I never really noticed the stiffer ride, although most of the time I had heavy trailers behind it.

I have had them on my truck for about 6 months now and really like them. Wethink the ride isbetter on my truckwhile towing with the Timbrens.



delqcc, how do you like your 08 F450? I have been looking at several new trucks and found a couple of 08 F450's on some near by dealer lots. All of the trucks I have been looking at are 1 ton's SRW and DRW.

Mark,

When I saw the topic "Sagging Butt" my first thought was "That sounds like something Mark would have posted." Glad to hear things are "looking up!" Nice avatar!

I put a set of Timbrens on my dodge 1500 and it sure helped the ride with my CF29RK. However, as you have mentioned it made my ride without the trailer a much harder ride. If you hit a strong bump empty you will feel the Timbrens hit. I checked to ensure they were installed correctly and they were. I recommend that if you use Timbrens is to use them from the 1st time pulling the trailer. I waited for almost 1.5 years before adding them and I think the springs were weaker. They helped me until I could get a larger truck which in turned caused DW to want a larger trailer. Nuff said on that issue.

Lonnie, I used this avatar on the hitchhiker forum, and it almost got me kicked off, AGAIN! I hold the all time record for being "removed" *Seems they do not have nearly the good sense of humor you guys on the crossroads forum have. They think I have tortured soul.

Yes I do! In fact, I shared your bear on the roof joke with them, and one actually liked it!! The crowd over there is a much older crowd, and damn, are some bitter. This is one of the best forums I have ever been on, good people, good information, and they still know how to have fun at the same time.

I agree. This is a good forum. A little slow at times but has good information.
