Anyone here know of or used the timbren axle-less suspension?

Trying to keep the overall height of the trailer as low as possible, saw the 4" drop spindles along with the no axle......... :?

Is it better than torsion axles? I will be a little worried about punctures on the rubber thingy.

capntelescope used them on his CNC build. He also has a write up on changing the polyurethane (IIRC) snubbers to derate them for a better ride.

On those ones, the "rubber thingy" is solid, not pneumatic. In theory, they can tear, but it's not likely. Here is a thread about replacing one of the springs, so you can get a better feel for it. viewtopic.php?f=35&t=65537
