    I'm new to plowsite.com. I've been reading recently on here people asking about putting timbrens on there trucks. They have been asking if it would affect the ride without the plow on. The answer is YES, I put a set of Timbrens on my 2003 Ford F-250 SD yesterday and it rides like a BUCK BOARD. I have noticed a big difference. Thats ok though, I would rather have a rough ride then a truck that sags with the plow on. Has anyone else run into this problem????:waving:

    If it rides that hard then your front springs are probably to soft.They should not affect ride quality that much.

    Do you have any heavy stuff like a winch or aftermarket bumper ? Are they the correct part number and installed correctly ?

    I think the reason they are so stiff is because I have the lighter duty front springs, They are the 4400lb springs. That is the reason I put the timbrens on. Any ideas how to fix it???. I was looking for a cheap fix. I didnt want to have to buy new springs

    You want the X code springs.They will give you some extra capacity.Available at any Ford dealer,and not too hard to change.

    Do you know how much they will cost??? And will it hurt my truck or the Timbrens if I keep the same springs and run the timbrens??? I can live with the rough ride as long as it doesnt hurt my truck??

    I believe they are about $250.00 for a pair.Call your local Ford dealer to confirm prices.Make sure they give you wholesale price.

    Any Idea if it will hurt my truck if I run the 4400lb springs with the timbrens?

    It won't hurt it at all,it will just ride a bit rough,that's all.
