    Hi guys I am looking into getting the timberns for my 02 silverado and was wondering if there is any special mounting besides drilling a few holes? I have the t-bars cranked up and the 285 bfgs on the truck so I am just looking to beef up the suspention a little more. I am also running a boss vee balde on the front. I talked to a guy and he said that he drilled a few holes but really didn't go into detail about them. Let me know just how hard it is to mount these things.

    You're truck a 1/2, 3/4, or 1 ton?

    No drilling required on my 1/2 ton.

    I have a 3/4 ton hd. How long did it take to mount them and do you run a plow on your truck?

    well i just recieved mine for my half ton, havent put them in, but looks like it is easy, no drilling required, just twist and insert i guess.

    Last year we put them on a 2500HD 2003. It took us 30 minutes. Jack up the front end and unbolt the old ones and bolt the new ones back on. 1 bolt per side, it is very easy. Keep the old ones you might want to put them back on in the spring.

    no drilling required

    you don't have to drill a thing, their "simple" to install and the best load boosters on the market. I sell about 200 sets a season and they come with a lifetime warranty. I can offer you a set for about $123.00 plus shipping. Shipping shouldn't't be that expensive maybe $10$-$12.00 if you interested email me at rocky@casullos.com, or see our website at casullos.com.

    They are cheap enough. I would put them on every truck I buy.
  10. Can I get a longer Timbred for my 2500HD to work with cranked torsion bars? I need the height for clearance with a plow and 285s....I think.
