Don't get me wrong my truck halls the load without the timbrens but does sag some. For the price of these trucks it should not be a customer problem. Not sure what I am going to do. If Ford had made the bump stopper flat not half round that would probably make a difference with my problem. May end up removing timbrens and wait till I can afford the spring, wish I had known could have put the $200 spent on timbrens to heavier springs. I had a 2003 Dodge Ram with the Hemi before this truck, it seemed to have a stiffer rear suspension. I liked the truck allot was even four doors but was getting this Eagle and wanted a diesel. At the time I could not find a Dodge diesel I liked. They were finding me one it did not even have the tow mirrors come a 2500 without tow mirrors. This Ford just kept catching my eye when I drove by for work. So after a test drive I was hooked.
Did you buy the truck used? If its the truck in the pic in your signature, it does appear to be sitting level unloaded. Thats a red flag to me, espically with a diesel engine. In fact if you look at the truck (although the pic is small and I cant enlarge it) it appears that the space inbetween the top of the tire to the bottom of the fender is larger in the front than the rear. Im going to go out on a limb and guess that the previous owner installed a leveler kit to the front of your truck so it wouldnt always be riding down hill (like they all do from the factory). If thats the case, you may want to have the alignment checked. When installed, it changes the dementions of the front suspension. You may not notice any abnormal wear on your tires, but a lift like that will change the caster angle and caster is a non tire wearing angle but will affect how well a vehicle drives down the road. Personally, if its there, id remove it from my vehicle.
