    Ok I got the picture, Timbrens don't suck. They work but has anybody looked into the use of Shockwaves by Air Ride? Sorry for insulting a sponsor!

    If you are getting a (jult) you might want to take a look at your ball joints and steering componets.
    You will not feel the timbrens working through the steering wheel.

    Q's asked on their site,
    Do I really have to run a compressor?
    A compressor and tank is highly recommended on a full air ride system


    Look what I found below and no mention of a vacuum;)

    2004 Silverado 1/2 ton with Boss V-Plow
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Everybody is talking about lowering there ride on these posts, has anyone found a better system for handling the #800 load my plow puts on the front of my truck. Right now I use a timbren but I realy dont like the ride when the plow is off the truck. This is my second truck with the #3000 bags on the rear for hauling crop protection products. I love these and need something some what simular for the front?

    I think that Firestone make a new air shock type unit for the front.


    -----------------------------------------------------------------
    :rolleyes: Too bad and you really wanted the shock-waves


    Does that answer your question?:waving:

    I hear you load and clear, I think this could be a better configuration than what we have been using. I contacted Boss and they are looking into it also, When time permits I'll do more searching on the product. Check it out yourself also. ( I love the ride my Ride Right 9000 give me) We need this on the front!!:nod:

    Well Farmer I see its past your bed time, Getting a little cranky?
    I dont understand why your so interested since your BIG truck dosnt need these you should just leave this to people with an eye for opportunity. Thanks again for your help.
    Now for those interested what do you think about these?

    Ouchxysport that hurt?

    Yea your young, to what did you put down in your profile so you look older, 43?

    One more time,
    They do not make them for a 2004 1500 chev for the front end.
    So, I ask you, knowing this, how can anybody have any "experience" with them?

    I'm sorry guys I've been trolled:D .......lol

    It just hit me..:dizzy:

    I'm done with you...

    thats all fine and dandy, and they sure look cute, but what part of they dont make a kit for your truck do you not understand?????

    It seems like you keep asking the same questions, and keep getting the same answers, but for some reason keep asking the question over and over, and over, and over again, instead of asking for the 30th time how we all feel about the shockwave (WHICH AGAIN, THEY DONT MAKE A KIT FOR YOUR TRUCK) you should ask if anyone has any experiance with any other product BESIDES the timbrens, and shock wave to help your truck carry the massive weight the v-plow is putting on your little 1/2 ton pickup.

    just a thought

    Nice find, rpmkag! Those are awesome, but man are they expensive! Over a g-note? I can't justify spending that much on my front end.
