Rear Suspension Support

A heavy rear load can cause sag as your factory suspension compresses under the weight of the load. This means that the rear axle is trying to support not only the extra load but also the weight of your vehicle. And because there is less weight on your front axle, your front tires make less contact with the road, which causes problems with traction, steering, and braking. SumoSprings upgrade your vehicle's factory suspension to level your vehicle, improve driving performance, and keep your ride comfortable.


Installed spring when it is not compressed

SumoSprings provide progressive load control - the more you load them, the stiffer they become. With a lighter load, the springs will compress easily for soft engagement and a less bumpy ride. The closed-cell urethane material allows for smooth contact between the springs and your vehicle. And the springs act like a shock absorber to dampen road vibration.


Installed spring when it is compressed

The springs can also compress by as much as 80 percent to support a heavy rear load and to help your factory suspension bear up under the load. This evens out the weight, which levels your vehicle and ensures that your front tires are making better contact with the road. A level ride means that you have improved driving control, ensures safe headlight aim, and helps to minimize sway. The springs also support your factory suspension, which helps prevent sagging and reduces bottoming out.


The springs work independently from one another to support each side of your vehicle. This action helps to reduce body roll when you make a sharp turn. This also helps compensate for an off-center load.


Durable, Custom-Fit Springs

These microcellular urethane springs are tough. They resist abrasion, oil, salt, and UV rays that can more quickly wear out other springs, and they perform well in temperatures ranging from -25 F to 200 F (-33 C to 93 C).


SumoSprings compress vertically with minimum expansion to the sides, so they won't be damaged by nearby mechanical parts and they fit safely into tighter spots. And unlike air springs, SumoSprings require no maintenance or adjustment.


The helper springs are custom designed to fit your vehicle, and they install easily - no drilling required.

Video Transcript for SumoSprings Solo Custom Helper Springs Installation - 2017 Ford F-150

Speaker 1: Today on our 2017 Ford F-150, we're gonna be taking a look at and showing you how to install the Sumo Spring solo custom helper springs for the rear axle and that's gonna be part number SSR-117-47. Whenever we're towing or hauling something heavy, the back end typically sags. That's gonna put a lot of stress and strain on our factory suspension in the back, not to mention in the front, it's gonna lift up, which will misalign our headlights and take less contact of our tire touching the road. So we'll go ahead and measure the factory measurements. The back here, the center line of the wheel, it's gonna be right about 40 1/4". Now at the front, it's gonna be right at about 37 1/2" and that's with no weight in the bed of the truck.

So let's go ahead and add some weight and see what those measurements are. We have a water tank at the bed of our truck as a heavy load or to simulate the tongue weight of a heavy trailer or a fifth wheel. So let's go ahead and take the measurements and see what it did.At the same point, it dropped our truck about 3" in the back. It raised it up about 1/2". So it made a bit of a difference.

So we have the same load in the back of our truck and we can already see that it's definitely helping out. So if we take a measurement, the back end is still sagging just a little bit. But it definitely helped out. Right now, we're sitting at right above 38 1/2". So it made about an 1 1/2" of difference.

Now in the front, we're just over 37 3/4. So it is still bringing that front end up. But it's definitely keeping it to a minimum with only about 1/4" of difference. So whether you're hauling a heavy load in the bed of your truck or pulling a heavy trailer, our Sumo Springs are gonna give us the support we need to get down the road safely and take the strain off of our suspension while all still being very comfortable. So here's what our Sumo Springs are gonna look like once we have them installed.They're gonna replace our factory jounce staffs and sit right between our frame and our rear axle.

So whenever we're carrying a heavy load, they're gonna give us that extra support that we need. To begin our installation, you're gonna want to lift the rear end of your truck up by the frame so the axle can hang down freely and we have adequate space between our axle and our factory jounce stop. Now if we look on the very bottom of our factory jounce stop, there's gonna be a hole and there's gonna be a bolt that's holing it in place. So we're gonna grab a 13 millimeter socket and an extension so we can reach it and we're gonna pull the bolt out that's holding it in place and we can go ahead and remove the jounce stop and the bolt and set them aside. We can grab one of our brackets from our kit now and you'll notice that there's gonna be two little tabs or ears that are sticking up. You want to make sure that those are towards the inside of the frame. We're gonna have two holes.We're gonna wanna use the forward haul to mount it up. So we can take our included M10 bolts. I'm gonna slide it through the hole just to get everything lined up. Then we're gonna go into the factory mounting spot of where we took our jounce stop out. So right now, I'm just gonna get it loosely started just so the bracket will hang and support itself. I'm gonna grab a 9/16 socket or a 15 millimeter socket. Then we can go ahead and tighten it up. So now in our kit, we can grab our 1" spacer and our spring and you'll notice that there's a small hole in the bottom of the bracket we just mounted. We're gonna take our long serrated bolt. We're gonna drop it down through. We're gonna line up our spacer so that the bolt comes through and then we're gonna have threads on our spring itself. So we can line it up and again, just loosely get it started. You want to hold the bolt on top and just spin the spring on until it makes contact.Then again, we're gonna come back with a 9/16 or 15 millimeter socket and tighten up that bolt. Now with this side down, we can go ahead and repeat that same process on the other side and that'll finish up your look at the Sumo Spring solo custom helper springs for the rear axle, part number SSR-117-47 on our 2017 Ford F-150.

Excellent addition to the truck and easy to install. Greatly reduces squat when pulling the RV and eliminates rear end hop when going over bumps with no load. 756809

The installation was relatively easy and straight forward. I’ve not yet attempted to hook up to my 5th wheel to see if it’s going to reduce the sag I was seeing that moved me to try this product. So this review is really about the install. 620456

Shipped fast. Easy to install. Work seamlessly. I put these on a 2018 F150 HDPP. I wanted to retain the factory ride quality when empty and have more support when loaded near my GVWR. With the 1" spacer, they nearly touched the axle (1/8" space) and make the ride very firm. So I removed the 1" spacer and the ride quality was indistinguishable from stock on all but the largest bumps. These Sumosprings engage so smoothly that you can't feel the initial contact, it feels like the springs just get progressively stiffer at a rate that is faster than the stock springs alone. Note, I slightly rerouted a cable because I thought it might contact the Sumospring and wanted more clearance for piece of mind. I don't know if this is necessary on the f150 or not, but it I know others that have done this as well. This adds a little time to the install. But still under an hour including finding misplaced tools. 520312

I installed these on a 2017 Ford F-150 SuperCab to stop the initial rear-end sag common with towing a trailer. These pickup trucks have springs regulated for a very smooth ride WHILE EMPTY, as most PU's are used as a personal sports car. The SSR product removes the rear sag, without causing a harsh ride. Easy to install... no maintenance needed... no air-bags to constantly leak. I had already installed Hellwig after-market sway bars on the rear, and also replace the puny Ford OEM front sway bar with a Hellwig product. Together with the Sumo product, there is NO side-sway at all. This product provides extra support, without detriment to the ride comfort. 682449

Install was super easy and the product does what it claims to do. Hauling the horse trailer with these added on is much more stable (no pun intended) and the sway is almost eliminated. 545406

This helped so much with bounce. Install was very easy on my 2018 F150 did not even need to remove the tires even with the extra 1 inch spacer. Thing to remember when you install them you put the bolt in the right hole. If you dont it will not sit right on your axle when you put weight on it. After my long trip with TT my back end did not bounce like crazy. My tuck does not have max tow so suspension is not tight. This made it like i had max tow package. After my trip I removed 1 bolt and removed the 1 inch spacer and now back to normal ride. You can leave spacer on it will make ride a little stiffer. But wife did not like that. I don't mind removing 1 bolt and add/remove spacers when needed. Also no bag to pop or leaks. People that post pics or say did not site right. Only 2 things can cause that. 1. Put into wrong bolt hole when installing. 2. Too much weight. You can't go wrong with them. They do what they said they do. 705252

The product was easy to install. The Tools needed list needs to be updated. Removing bolt is 13mm. Installing new bolts are 15mm. Also the nuts that are tack welded inside the frame will break loose if any rust or debris are on the threads. Back up wrench is near impossible if to fit if the size is not known. End up cutting the old bolt because of this. That’s not your products fault. That’s Fords issue. With the 1” spacers provided it raise my F150 4 1/2”. Stiffened the ride up. Ready to haul my 5th wheel. NICE 452641

The Sumo Springs are still performing well. I Hauled our 29.5 5th Wheel from Upstate NY TO Florida through a major 4 State nor’easter. We have also bought a 16’ cargo trailer and hauled it to it’s full weight capacitie. The truck is still sitting high.

Installed on my 2010 F150 XLT to help with sag when pulling our camper. Very easy to install, even with my tires on. Used my large floor jack and raised the frame to create more room. To help with the removal of my stock jounce bumpers, I sprayed PB Blaster on the end of the bolt-located in the opening in the frame. Sorry, I didn't take any pics on the project. 800956

I don't really notice a difference on my Ford F150 truck when it is empty but when I attach my 26' trailer that's when I notice a big difference. The truck stays parallel when the trailer is attached and the handling is quite noticeable, much better than without. I would highly recommend this product. 771809

Review from a similar SumoSprings Solo in Vehicle Suspension


This product does what it says it will do. One of the issues that I have is the difficulty to install this product. The 2020 Ram 1500 on the passengers side has a stabilizing bar that interferes installing all the nuts on the rear of the mounting plate spring. My truck supposedly has a 1 inch lift from the factory (Big Horn North Edition). I used the plastic extension as recommended in the installation instructions and even with the 1 inch factory lift, using the plastic spacer makes the spring rest on the rear axle with no load in the truck. I'd recommend to not install with the plastic spacer. The ride is much stiffer but I'm OK with that as when my trailer is attached the ride is as expected. 764466

These jounce-style springs feature progressive load control that will provide you with a much smoother ride when compared to the Timbren springs, especially when empty or hauling a lighter load. They have a 1,500 pound weight capacity so they will do a nice job of reducing the rear sag you are experiencing when hooking up the trailer. It will be a simple, no-drill installation....

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for 2016 Ford F-150 Towing 7,500 lb Travel Trailer

Especially in emergency situations. The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of the setup when it...

  • Recommended Suspension Enhancement for 2020 Ford F-150 with 1,500 Pound Trailer Tongue Weight
    For the 1,500 lb tongue weight on your 2020 Ford F-150 I recommend the SumoSprings Solo Custom Helper Springs # SSR-117-47 if your F-150 is a 4-wheel drive or # SSR-116-47 if your F-150 is a 2-wheel drive because they reduce sway while keeping your truck level to give you a smoother, more controlled ride. The SumoSprings are made of a microcellular urethane which compress independently based on the amount of weight being transferred, which is why they greatly reduce the amount of sway and...

  • SumoSpring or Timbren Suspension Enhancement for 2011 Ford F-150
    The payload you reference on your 2011 Ford F-150 is the max capacity with or without helper springs. Adding the SumoSprings Solo Custom Helper Springs - Rear Axle # SSR-117-47 you referenced is a great option because they are additional support that progressively help as the load amount increases meaning they get more firm as they compress. My favorite part about the SumoSprings is they don't change the ride when not loaded but give the strength and support for a better ride when...
