    if you are planning on using these often, I'd probably do the helwig. They look like they'll provide more help throughout their travel. The timbren are probably great for the occasional loading. I'd consider them to be a step above bump stops. I would not plan on towing a boat with just the timbrens.

    hmm tuff decision, looks like the helwigs are stronger and help axle wrap and or wheel hop. and they cost less.

    i dont haul that often., are u sayin the helwigs will stiffen the ride way to much without carrying loads all the time. did they not ever wear in and dampen up after time? hmm maybe ill just add another leaf
