    Sorry for not answering your question harley hauler. I tried the link and it didn't work either. Timbrens are like a rubber donut that is used to prevent the truck from sagging too much, thus helping to protect the shocks/springs/axle. A lot of the plowers use them regardless of wether or not the truck sags. They can be used in the front/back of your vehicle, they replace the stock bump stop. Again, sorry for acting a bit foolish, but I didn't know what the others were talking about.

    www.timbren.com

    Thanks windmill for what I was looking for. I'm going to look into them for my 02 150, i'm hanging a7.5 fisher of the front does'nt sag very much the less sag I can get the better. Thanks again!! P.S. When I pick a set of this up and install should I go a few rounds on the torsions??

    It seems like most people do, depending on where the front ends up w/ the plow on.

    We put a set on my son's truck but didn't need to crank up the torsion, but then he's running a 3/4 ton Chev. I'm not sure about Ford torsion, it seems that most suggest marking it before cranking it so that you can crank them down to the same spot again in the summer. The Timbrens will give you a harder ride with a load on and some people take them off in the summer too. PM me if you have more questions.
