Though the Burro 13 is tucked away in the garage for the winter, thoughts of camping trips are always part of our conversation.
I was wondering if anyone has installed Timbren rubber suspensions on their Tow Vehicle and if they are worth the cost, and improve the ride? We tend to bring alot of equipment, ie. kayaks, bikes, etc when we are off on a jaunt.
Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to all.
While I'm not familiar with the Timbren rubber suspensions, I did install a set of Airlift 1000 airbag lifters in the rear coil spings of my 2003 Honda Odyssey last year with good success.
This kit, costing about $100 with about 3 hours labour to install (about $200 in many shops), lifts and supports the rear end of the minivan to allow additional weight
without rear sagging.
I don't condone exceeding the load capacity, but it does make a better ride and the headlights don't aim high.
I tow a 3500 lb Bigfoot
and have had no issues.
The air bags can be inflated to 35 psi and I keep them at about 25-30. I did install them with separate valves, but a
single one can be used. Mine are installed inside the Gas Cap door, so they are kept clean but fiddly to check and fill.
They have a 'Liftetime' guaranty (?) and the Honda Oddy Forum has many strong supporters.
