Are those solid or do they compress slightly?
Id say theyre just a bit softer than the factory bump stops. Looks like roughly 1-1-1/2 from bump stop to the axle pad. Lighter than I expected, but I think thats due to the type of polyurethane used, which is said to have air bubbles in it. Id think that from what Ive read, the Timbrens would be heavier and stiffer.

Timbrens are pretty stiff for sure but my truck is 3500 with overloads before installing them my trailer would squat the overloads a couple of inches, with the Timbrens the overloads are not quite touching. Good luck with them & report back how you like them when you get to use them

Forgot to update my thread! I still have the SumoSprings on my truck; I figure about 10k miles with them so far, and I can’t tell they’re back there unloaded if I didn’t look. I haven’t towed anything that’s really worked the truck, but have had about 600lb or so of snowmobile & gear in the bed which just barely has them touching, and I still don’t notice an overly stiff ride. I’ve also hauled a couple snowmobile trailers last winter with bed full of gear; both from Ohio to Montana and to the UP. I think they provided a little additional support over some nasty road heaves out west and reduced bounce. They probably have not been needed for what I’ve done with the truck so far; but I haven’t noticed them in a bad way, either. I consider them $140 well spent.
