    Check them out here...

    http://www.truckspring.com/timbren-front-kits_754.html

    That's where I always buy them. Fast delivery & free shipping. Get up off your wallets and just buy them, they're worth the money!

    Part number for the HD2500's is GMFK25S. The ones from a 1500 will not work on the 2500.

    If you all are that worried about price with these things... Check out Buyers brand of "bump stop"... They go for $130 a pair. Just installed them on my buddies 3500 dually and when he lifts the 9' Fisher, it squats maybe a 1/2 inch if that... Seem to be pretty good.

    Has them on an '04 F150, well worth it, sold truck with them on and new owner loves them...
    Now I own a F250 Powerstroke, but went with air bag this time..

    Worth every penny for Timbrens, not a wast...

    I am also looking for a set but trying to decide which would be the best. timbrens, air rides air cell, or these new sumos. I know they are pretty much the same design but I have no experience aith any of them. does either one ride better when the plow is not on the truck. I have heard some say the timbrens are quite stiff when unloaded.

    Does anyone else run the Buyers brand bump stops? I can get htem for around 1/2 the cost of Timbrens- are they as good? I can't see throwing $200 at chunks of rubber and sheet metal, but for $100, maybe.

    Buyers anyone?

    I just put the Buyers truck stars bump stops on. They seem to be about the same as Timbrens to me. My local Fisher dealer sold them to me for $140.

    I do not know of anything that would give the Timbrens brand an advantage over the Buyers. To me they both seem massively overpriced, so I chose the cheaper ones. A few chunks of rubber with bolts and washers....

    Guys, the Buyers brand we bought were from a local spring shop... $130 something out the door, and that was including tax! They are damn near IDENTICAL to the Timbren's.

    Those things look IDENTICAL to Timbrens. I wonder if they are, just private labled for Buyers.
