    I've read about Timbren copycats that are out, can anyone comment on them? What are they called? I read a thread here about a year ago that stated they are half the cost of Timbrens but I cant find any info on them.

    Here is the link to them.http://http://www.buyersproducts.com/truck-trailer-hardware/truck-suspension-kits/auxiliary-suspension-kit/Auxiliary-Front-Suspension-Kit-for-GM-Trucks/4672/

    I bought a pair last year to put on a 1998 K2500 and they did help, but I think the Timbrens are better. If my truck would have had more front end sag then what it had I would have gone with the Timbrens.

    I have the Airlifts on the front of my 2006 3500 w my Dmax.Been running them since last Dec. with my 9-2 Boss V plow.Very pleased with them.Never had Timbrens and never will due to the ridiculous price on them.

    At least for what I could find quickly, the Air Lift Aircell kit is only $30 less than the Timbren kit. Both seem ridiculous to me.

    Cool, found them for $159 when I did a quick search...last time I considered buying Timbrens they were $170 last year, now they're $190.

    Its a hunk of shaped rubber...ought to be well under $100 and still profitable.

    Dont forget the Sumos from Supersprings.....The Air Cell is a copy of they're design. Much better ride than Timbrens and Buyers hard rubber stops. I can get you steller pricing if you need some...just give me a call 877-361-2227
