    So i picked up a set (rear) of Timbrens for the rear of my 99" NBS truck because the rear sagged so much when ever i loaded or pulled my 16" cargo w/lawn equipment What a difference they made I have them on the front of both plow trucks but this is the first time i installed them on the rear of a truck, anyway they cost me $133.00 and it only took me 30 min. to install and that was laying on my back using hand tools (it was 11:30 last night and i didn't want to turn on my air compressor)

    It ok we know it sag so bad like my 79 F150 haul 2,800 pound of scrap with broke leaf spring on right side.

    Let us know how it improve ride no more bounce when it overload?


    DO they make for front axle? No I am curious because I see lot Ford, Chevy, Dodge have those V plow and it sag so bad.

    When there is no weight in the truck the gap between the Timbren spring helper is 3/4 of an inch away from the bump plate on the rear end as compared to 1 3/4 inchs with the old bump stops so when i hit a bump or dip on the road i can feel the new Timbrens bounce which gives it a little stiffer ride.

    Yes they make them for the front also i have them on the front of both of my plow trucks.

    Yes we do. We have the rear leaf spring add on. It says that its good from 79-09. Here is a copy of the installation instruction, its kinda small but if you hold control and click on it you will zoom in.
