Default Timbren Suspension

Anyone here use and or familiar with the timbren suspension stiffeners? I noticed over the last few months that when I load 2,500-2,800 lbs on the F350 that the rear is starting to drop down and I'm wondering if my leaf springs are getting weaker. I've been advised by several guys who carry similar weight that these timbrens have helped a lot. I'm curious if any of you have experience with these to share?

Update: I had the timbrens installed. On several reviews I've read, many stated that there is no noticeable change in the ride when hauling empty. I disagree, it has made the ride very rigid and very noticeable. When I loaded the truck it does handle nicer with a more controlled feel to the truck. Very soon I will be giving them the real test with 2,800 lb cargo in the bed and pulling around 6K. I will note how that handles after the trip.

Second update: I just did a tad over 1K mile trip with a pretty decent load. I had 2,500+lbs on the truck and pulled around 6K with the bumper pull trailer. Much better with these on than off. The rear didn't sag at all and I didn't feel like I was fighting turns at high speeds either. Overall I'm glad I decided to add these.

I pull a 13,000# 5th wheel and I went with air bags.Much better ride unloaded. Much more intensive to install and more money but for me well worth the cost.
