I have Timbrens on my F-250. I got them online and paid $168, I just can't remember who I bought them from. [2 years ago]. I installed them myself and it took about an hour with no removal of the rear tires or jacking up the truck. Actually, removal of the factory bumpstops [which I saved] took longer than installing the Timbrens. There are a lot of rear enhancement products out there and I think different situations call for different products. Personally, I think the Timbrens work very well with a WDH, but if I was towing a 5th wheel, I'd really consider air bags. I'll try and find out where I bought them.

In my '06 F350 the factory standard 'overload' springs are about an inch away from the bumper and do not contact the bumper until the truck is loaded with a trailer.
Yes, they just unscrew and the timbrens goes in the same place.

I purchased mine on Amazon and the price today for an F-250 is $169.19. Go to the Timbren SES website to get part #'s and check around. Not sure if you can beat Amazon's prices though.

I chose these instead of the Timbrens; it was not an easy choice, I really liked the Timbrens:

They are a passive system much like the Timbrens, but there is some adjustability. Also, these improve the unloaded handling of my truck a lot.

I have had Timbrens on my truck for years. They work great, zero maintenance and keeps my truck level when towing my 5'er.

After the install and after a quick WDH adjustment, you'll find it a lot easier to hook up.
