    On my 08 canyon, I have a great deal of sag in the rear. I normally start out with about 20 bags of salt plus my 575 spreader. Recently I added a helper spring, which does some good. but I need more.

    Would timbrens help or should I add some stiffer springs. I really don't care for air bags.

    If business is good this year, I plan on going to a 1075 or a small vbox next year.

    Timbrens would help greatly and not affect the ride unless loaded to the point they come in contact with the bump stop itself. Stiffer springs will help too but your really sacrificing the ride quality and overall handling of the truck. Plus, timbrens are cheap.

    I put a set of timbrens on my Tahoe for trailering and eliminated sag completly. Cost about $300. Great product.
