    Dead link...

    What kind of truck? I hated the timbrens on my Fords, but they seemed to work well on the front of the Chevy's, maybe cuz gm's are like driving a sponge to begin with... :p

    Definitely go with springs or airbags, it'll ride stiffer all the time, but will still have decent spring rates with add a leafs or heavier spring packs, whereas timbrens will interfere with the spring rate and give a more punishing ride, IMO. Airbags are the best of both worlds, stiff when you need it, soft when you don't (get your mind out of the gutter).

    i have used both the tiberons and springs, all my trucks have them on the front and rears, all are gm's, i also have a 1 ton gm tow truck, i really love the tiberons on it, it doesn't matter if i am towing a grand am or a 3/4 ton suburban, it squats the same, also on my 1 ton dump, when we have it loaded with salt i know it over weight in the rear, but it doesn't look it, so the dot won't think i'm over weight and pull me over

    Not sure if this helps but I put add a leafs on the front of my F350 and I highly recommend them if you carry a plow.
