    For those of you with Chevy or GMC trucks- who runs timbrens? If yes, are they really worth the money? If not- how come?

    I put them in my gmc 3500 srw duramax and it just made the ride HORRIBLE. It was so bad, I felt like I was ruining the truck just driving to work. I took them right out.

    i have them and have nothing bad to say. they help the truck hold the plow a lot better. when the plow is off, the ride is fine to me, just feels alot stiffer and you can feel every bump, but nothing i would complain about.

    The truck runs better with them on. A little stiffer ride, but it is a work truck and that is what I use it for so I have no complaints. I did not put them on the rear. I installed firestone HD airbags. With the truck loaded it drives like a dream...

    I run them on my truck and they made the ride a whole lot better with the 800# plow attached. Getting them for the rear soon to help with a load of salt.

    I have them and the ride is a little rough with the plow on but I REALLY need them to stop the suspension from bottoming out. The control arms and timbrens touch as soon as I lift the plow.
