What are you trying to address/fix? It will be helpful to know why you want to add them so we can tell you if they will help or not.

I have them and love them. I pull a 30í fifth wheel with my F150 and it is much more stable plus very little squat.
No airbags to leak or fill.

Timbren Suspension Enhancement System

Truck squats alot when I hitch to trailer, WD Hitch brings the back of the truck back up. Thinking the less work the WD hitch has to do the better. Better towing, less sway?

Nope, the purpose of the WDH isnít to raise the rear of the truck. Itís to distribute the weight to the front axle and some back to the trailer. Nothing to do with rear squat and Timbrens would not reduce how much weight the WDH needs to transfer. Itís the WDHís job to work hard.

Read your truckís owners manual to determine how much weight/height needs to be added back to the front axle with the WDH and make sure your WDH is properly adjusted when your trailer is loaded and ready to go. If youíre not sure how to adjust your WDH then the instructions are available online.

Thanks for letting us know why you were wanting to install them, you could have ended up with a very unsafe setup by trying to take weight off the WDH.

If youíre overweight then Timbrens or airbags will not help you. Thatís not their job.

I had Timbrens on a 2013 F-150 CC 4x4 that I pulled a 5th wheel with.
Big improvement towing and no noticeable ride difference unloaded.

I still have them (took off when I sold the truck) and would sell them cheap.

I put them on my 2014 1/2 ton Chevy and canít say enough good things about them or the customer service. I ended up with 5400 pound models. Perfect .. Jay.
