    Just got my Timbrens in today and installed them on my truck. Truck is a 1992 Chevy Silverado K1500. I took some pics while I installed them to show the difference and how easy it was! :D

    is all the weight on the timerens now? if so i would give the tbar a crank so you have some suspention travel and wont kill your baljoints when you hit a sewer or smallpot hole in the road. looks good other wise though!

    Ihdriver, you're welcome.

    TheGoldPro, probably a different part number for your truck, but Im sure it would still be a direct fit, meaning no holes needing to be drilled.

    Didn't have to drill any new holes. I did however have to do soem digging to actually find one of the holes haha. 18 years of dirt and grime build up made it hard to find.

    It was $194.95 for the Kit and I found it on www.TruckSpring.com
    The rear Timbren kit was the same price, but I didn't buy the kit for the rear.
    I just looked up the price of the kits for the trucks in your signature and its the same price... $194.95. It should be just as easy on your 89 as it was for my 92. I don't know about your Excursion, but it can't be that much harder. :)
