    Just wondering, but i was looking at something in the front end of my 97 the other day and noticed my timbrens on both sides are gone! The mounting studs are still there and round steel plate that is on top but the rubber timbren itself is gone! This ever happen to anyone else? Kinda sucks considering how much they cost!!

    I was wondering about that. I just installed some on one of my trucks. First set I have ever bought. As I was installing them, I was thinking they did not have the toughest looking mounting bolts and the thread insert in the timbren is just molded in. Quite pricey to have them coming off. However, they do have a LIFETIME WARRANTY so maybe they will give you a new set. I would give it a try for 200 bucks. Lets us know if they do.

    Same thing happed to me, just the rubber part was gone everthing else was still there. They will send you new ones if you contact them. I told them when I purchased and they ask for my shipping address, three days later whole new kit shows up free. Thanks Timbren!

    Timbren will make good on any damaged parts, they are exspensive but worth it when they split or come apart, they replace with no questions for me.

    I find them all the time cutting along roadsides:nod:, they take alot of abuse and it's good that Timbren understands and stands up to their guarantee.

    Is there anyway to prevent this? Or just abuse over the years?
