    That sounds about right to me MIne where around $135 when I got them in '97 that rear is more money if you get them for there.

    $160 is right in the ballpark. I just bought a set of front Timbrens from Garagekeeper for that amount. He is good and easy to deal with. :)

    I think we should mention we have a sponsor,RPM Sales that sells these as well.

    $175 I paid last year for them for an F250. They are cake to install. 1/2 hour tops to put them in. They work quite well if you ask me.

    I bought a pair from RPM last winter. I remember the price being better than I had seen elsewhere. Good guy to deal with, shipped fast. I'd highly recommend.

    Will re-iterate the feedback/buyer experience I left in the sponsor forum for RPM here: I called him in the morning, I had a UPS tracking number 2 hours later, and they were on my doorstep 2 days later. $157 was what I paid last year.

    I talked to Ed Sanders at Timbren when they gave me the wrong set for my truck.and he sold them to me there # is 1-800-263-7581 and if you have any questions they can help.But I think it's cheaper to buy them from a distibutor.

    It looks like I will need to weld a bracket to install them on my 89 dodge w-250. That is a bummer. On the 2001 ford, they went right on.

    My dodge has an extra leaf spring bracket for the diesel and more springs on it than the newer trucks. I'm not even sure that I need them. The front of the truck is really strong. I was just thinking that they might help for going over bumps. It bounces a bit when I hit a big bump with the plow on.

    The bracket is pretty easy to weld on.Any good shop should be able to install them for you.

    Are you familiar with the suspension of my truck? 89 w-250 diesel? Do you think that I really need them. I'm pretty sure my truck in a 1 ton without the dual rear wheels. I have 9900 gvwr.
