Timbrens, which I installed both in the front and rear on my SLT, do not replace the springs of your truck. They replace the stock bump stops. Bump stops come with most trucks and are designed to stop the collisin of your upper truck parts from hitting the lower parts under stress (bumps in road, heavy loads, etc.). Timbrens are essentially a rubber cylinder that attach to your frame and rest on the axle under heavy loads. They are closer to the axle then the stock ones and are more heavy duty. You can alter their distance to the axle buy buying "puck" like spaces. The closer to the axle when not under stress, the rouger the ride. They do not increase your truck's capablity but rather add stability under heavy loads. They work better in the front since they are one point of contact, unlike the rear where there is more distance and thus the reason why traditional leaf springs work better than coils under heavy loads. Since your Ram has rear coils, the Timbrens should provide for less sag since they will rest on the axle when your bed has weight in it. However, if you install them you will still notice sag near the bumper if there is weight there as Timbrens provide more stability above the axle (this is why it is recommended you load the bed over the axle if possible).
