    I know this is the wrong forum but it gets the most views. If i put timbrens on the back of my F-150 would i have to put them on the front also? I mean will it look too "jacked up" in the back?

    I did a quick internet search of timbrens and I found out that they might lift the back a little but not much. I think you will be okay with just the back. If it raises the back up by more than an inch, I would go right ahead and put them on the front as well b/c anything more than an inch will look pretty silly.

    They shouldn't "lift" anything! They are just firmer stops.

    Just get a set of air bags or air shocks and call it a day

    Timbrens are VERY easy to install, takes about 5 mins each side. And are pretty cheap compared to air bags or air shocks.

    I have timbrens on the front of my F250. On the front, they fit tight and raised the front end about .5 - 1 inch. I will install a set soon on the back, and from what I've read the rears will still leave a gap, therefore no lift on the back. Extremely simple installation. Worth the money spent in my opinion.

    timbrens wont raise the truck. if you had a chevy with torsion bars it might raise the front a little but as said before they are simply a larger bump stop.

    i agree 110% on the air bags i have them on three trucks and love them great for everything from a bobcat to a boat. but, if you only have a f150 probably not what you need
