Anyone have experience with either? What are your thoughts as to which one is better? NOT doing airbags!

I put Timbrens in my 2015 Chevy 2500hd and the installation was simple. Lube um up with a little liquid soap and they pop into place with pressure from a pry bar, 2x4 or any type of leverage. Keeps the truck level with a load whether it's from your camper or a load of dirt. Great addition to any truck for the price!

I had airbags on my last truck, hated messing with them. Put Timbrens on my 2015 dually. When I talked to them before I ordered I was told they would take them back if I didn't like them. My only reason to install them was to soften the harsh transition when bouncing on and off my overloads when hitched up. They work as designed. Happy I have them.

So a small question to the OP.
From your signature;
"2018 Premier 29RKPR
2014 Ford F-150"
Are you replacing the the Premier 29KPR, with a 5er?
Do you plan on towing the 5er with the F150?

Gotta' ask but what are oversprings ??

I've used air bags/Timbrens/Supersprings and had spring shops add leafs in the rear spring pack with good success on various trucks over the years.

I like Timbrens as well. On my previous truck install air bags, never liked the ride when empty andnthe psi reduced to the recommended 5 psi. My current truck came with Timbrens installed, what a difference for the positive. Now wouldn’t consider anything else.
