    I will be towing an atv trailer with a yamaha griz 450, 660, and tri-moto 200 along with cargo in the bed! Which would be better, bags or springs?

    Heard good things about Timbrens but my choice was SuperSprings.

    They give the rear of the truck a little preload. I like that but at the same time I don't because it brings down the height of the headlight beam and this is really noticeable on low beam but not so much when using the high beams.

    You'll be OK either way.

    Cheers!

    I have timbrens. It makes for a truck like ride. They work well, and were easy to install. If you like the super smooth stock ride, get bags.

    +1 bags. They're adjustable. Springs and timbrens are not.
    I have timbrens. When they wear out, bags go on.
