    just put timbrens on my f350(rear) last week,
    made a nice improvement-back of truck sits 3-4" higher(when loaded)
    than previous. tows better- less bouncyness in the rear
    and truck handles a little better (when loaded +towing)
    but it is deffinately stiffer in back over bumps

    im curious how long these things will last though,
    i took them out this week to remove the 1/2"spacers and
    noticed the timbrens are already a U shape on the bottom
    from hitting the stop brackets
    is this normal?

    that's normal they are life time guaranteed .you need a little bit of air gap when you are unloaded .

    Will these make your truck sit any higher when empty? Especially the front end? There is a place near me that is a dealer for them!

    on the rear you are supposed to have at east about 3/4-1" of clearance between the Axel and the Axel . on the front they will be setting on them. the rear will not be affected when empty unless you bottom out when hitting big bump's .
