Has anyone run these replacement hangers with a TC? Seems like the big 5th wheel guys like them.

Also, Bigtruckbigrv on youtube has done a review.

Yeah. The best $300 spend on the truck so far.
Only initial worry was short warranty, but I inspected them lately on the beginning of 3rd seasons and the rubber looks good. My camper can put 7000lb on rear axle, but the benefit is really noticeable on empty drive.
Now I don't panic seeing street cover on my path.

Did you get any increased sway with them?

Dually tracks like rollercoaster.
Hangers or not, so if there is any difference, it is not noticeable.

Rollercoasters seem out of control and at the last moment aren’t. I’m glad my dually doesn’t ride like that. [emoticon]

Once you find any truck who can't go out of control - let me know?

Maybe he meant more like RAILS (of a rollercoaster) vs. whiplash (of a rollercoaster) [emoticon]

I run a Kelderman two stage air ride kit which works in a similar way.
It replaces the rear spring hangers with a big hinged bracket that rides on airbags, to take the harshness out of the ride. It’s mainly for when you’re driving the truck empty and don’t want to be beat half to death.
If the sulastic hangers work as well, they’re worth having, IF you drive your truck without the camper more than with it.
My camper is on less than 1% of the time, that’s why I have that plus overload airbags rather than stiff springs and Timbrens.
If you only own a truck to carry a camper then I’d skip any of this and just put in big springs.
