Installed some rear timbrens to get rid of any sag in the rear when towing or carrying a heavy load. Trailer in the summer, Salt Spreader in the winter plus 1500lbs of salt. Will post on PlowSite as well.

Raven, they are easy to install and they cost well under $200.00 for a set.

yea install was easy, took about an hour total, worst part was the dirt and dust falling in my eyes from underneath the truck, gonna throw some weight back their tomorrow and see how they work. i think i paid like 180.00 for these from albany spring.

So these bolt into the same holes as the rubber bumpers? If so then this is simply taking out two bolts and putting them back in. How do you get nuts on the inside of the frame? What if the load doesn't push them into contact with the axle?

they are bolted to a c channel beam, so the bolts are easy, they're is no way for them to miss the contact plate at all.
