I bought a set of Rear timrens off ebay (JRC01) and they are the right ones for the X, but they are the longer style for people with SL. I do not have a SL so when installed, they are already compressed.

Anyone with the Timbrens for stock interested in trading for ones to use with a SL?

They installed fine and bolted right up, but once I lower the X, they are already sitting on the axle. Makes for a real bouncy ride.

I am pretty sure you have the right ones. mine were the same (before i lifted my truck). If you want you can take them off and cut one of the "bubbles" off to shorten them up a bit... someone on this site did it. I dont think that timberen makes shorter ones that fit our X's.

I could be wrong (doubt it though) so someone else chime in if they know something i dont.

I put mine on the other day (same kit). At least 1" space between bottom of the Timbren and the axle. No lift on my X (yet). They do make a difference, too. After installing them, I took it for a test drive in a nearby neighborhood w/ "Sleeping Policemen". About nine of them w/ signs posted Max Speed 20 MPH. Before the Timbrens, even going over these at 20 the rear end bottomed out. After Timbrens I tested at up to 30 w/o bottoming out. A bit stiff, but better than the bump before the install. I'll keep mine.

I believe there are two different sizes and some people here have also stated their's sat on the axle without lift. However there are are others without lifts that also have Timbrens that do not touch.

you may be right. I always assumed that the people whos timberens werent touching was just because their leaf springs havent fully sagged all the way.... or those whos timberens were touching had springs that had sagged a little more than normal. Either way good luck finding somebody to trade.
