    This is just a set on the front with NO torsion bar changed, it rides just like that not alot of bob'n and sway'n

    I don't have any ont eh back and the phot has about 450 LBs of salt in the bed plus the spreader and 40 lvbs in the spreader.

    Rides like a champ, when I first got this set up it drove around for a week and couldn/t take the bounce and bob and weave while driving plut the recorery of the plow was bounce.

    Ever truck I plow with will have timbrens period.

    Good Luck:salute:

    Do you think all plow trucks need timbrens I was thinking about them for my truck but not sure if I need them

    MY answer would be yes, I think light to midweight trucks should have them and I will likely have them on every truck I plow with unless it has a major front end support system for range of motion weight transfer.

    Timbrens are sweet for recover (when you lift the plow at the end of a row or run and when you are travelling over dips or rises like rRR tracks and the like) you just don't get that pescy third and forth bounce

    I didn't want them or the expense at first, then I kept on this site for 6 months before signing on and I tried them as "advise" form some experienced pros...........money well spent and I won't be without them

    Somehow I feel it is keeping my repairs down because it stops the twist and sway motions pretty will

    Good Luck:salute:

    i have a 04 super duty and i have a 8'2" steel power v and my front end barley moves now theres a guy around town that a has a newer f-150 with an 8'2" what a joke with no timberens he needs them i bet when he hits a bump his front end hits or his tires rub but if you have a smaller truck i would get them my boss dealer said my truck would be a waist of money or the effort. good luck plowing
