    Real quick, what are timbrens? Are they springs. Ive heard of them but not sure of the use. Where can I get them, and can I install them myself?
    Thanx :drinkup:

    They are a bump pad that replaces the factory bump stops. They are thicker and stiffer for the load. I got mine from www.bsaohio.com. They were like $145.00 delivered to my door. They are super easy to install. Do a search on Bad lucks install and that will give you an idea of how they install and what they look like. Breck :waving:

    AWDirect has them also- $158 a set I think. (awdirect.com) only they don;t call them "Timbrens", they only refer to them as Front suspension boosters or something like that.

    They are very easy to install except on my 2000, 3500 Dodge the top plate had to be welded. I don't know why. The web site said no welding but the instructions said to weld.

    Ok, another stupid question- how is the ride with timbrens installed, with and without plow?

    Its not bad, you may be able to notice it a little bit but its not enough to really talk about. Breck :bluebounc

    My timbrens don't touch unless there is a load on the truck so the ride is the same empty and with a load is a lot more stable.

    cool, Thanks. I saw them in AWdirect over the summer and have though about installing them now finding this site and hearing so much about them I am really interested. I hate having so much weight on my front end, being diesel. Guess I'll order set too!
