    Does anyone think that timbrens could add any extra wear/tear on your ball joints? Mine were fine and then all of a sudden I'm getting new tires put on at Belle Tire and they tell me theres movement in the front uppers and lowers. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH one by one the bills are going to strangle me.

    Not sure we are talking about the same thing, but my dad's 95 F250 has the Timbren rubber overload donuts on the rear, and the truck has over 350k hard very overloaded miles on it. Have done nothing at all to the suspension/front end besides shocks. Tires have always lasted like they were suppose to also.

    I have had timbrens on every 4x4 we have had to help supplement front suspension with the plow on. I have never had any extra wear on the front end because of them. If anything they help with spring life and such. Every ford we have had has had front end issues anyway. Chevys and dodges haven't. at least not in the same amount of miles.
