    Just wondering if anyone has ever bent suspenion parts running timbrens. I would think running timbrens something else would get stressed out or bent.

    My leaf springs need to be re-sprung or replaced. Although this problem was starting before I added the Timbrens hence the reason for them.

    They did not prevent it but I believe I would be riding on my tires had I not installed them. I am upgrading to 1 Ton springs in a couple weeks until then I have been limiting how much I salt I load now. These are on a 2500 HD Dodge with the 8900# GVW

    I run timbrens, slam my trucks with too much weight and have never broke or bent anything because of it in 11 years.
