Most OEM coil suspensions have a difficult time supporting heavy front loads like winches, brush guards and snowplows. If your coil springs are totally squished under a load, the lack of shock absorption can be harsh on your backside, especially if you spend long hours sitting in your vehicle while clearing snow. Insert these helper springs in between the individual coil loops in your front coil springs to help defeat driver fatigue and to better support heavy front loads.


Coil SumoSpring installed between rungs of coil spring

Each doughnut-shaped spring has H-shaped channels at the top and bottom that fit to a rung of each coil in your front coil springs. Inside each round spring, a core of microcellular polyurethane foam adds cushioning between your coils. The cushioning absorbs shock, but also works progressively to better support front loads, and it keeps the front end more level. Unbumpify your ride with these SumoSprings for coil suspensions.

As advertised, simple install and dampens sway in my classB motorhome.



by:
2008 Dodge Ram Pickup

These seem to make a big difference on the sagging front end of my '08 Ram 1500. Tip: Use LOTS of dish soap and install on a warm, sunny day. My first attempt at installation was on a cold day and the springs were inflexible and would NOT go on. They went on easily when warm.

Still working great. No problems or regrets!

It does take some
time and sweat equity to install. I think some may have a harder time if both tires are not off the ground at once. Lifting only one side, the front sway bar may transfer some of that compression to the tire in the air possibly causing that spring to have less room between coils.

They work as advertised however may need not be for everyone. I like how I can take corners at higher speed as if it is on rails (I also have the rear sumos). No nosedive during emergency stops. Not too intrusive when driving on smooth pavement but over rough or broken road can be tiresome over time. I guess they took a little more "spring" out then I was hoping for.

I am considering taking them out and installing a larger front sway bar.



by:

Helps with trailer squat tremendously - Installation was very difficult to expand strings wide enough



by:

Went in quite easily with great pics



by:

These springs did not really change the unloaded ride quality. They also added about 1/2 of lift to the front of my truck. I wasn't expecting that, but it worked out for me. I installed a 2 inch front leveling kit about a year ago and I wished I went with a 2.5 leveling kit.



by:

They don't seem to be the right ones for my silverado 1500 4x4. Too much play between spring even without lifting vehical?

You mentioned that they had too much play and I wanted to see if you could send a picture of them installed.

The instructions stated that when you install them that you put the bottom on and move up or down on the spring until top is snug and pop in bottom. On my truck even on the ground there is no area where this happens.

Product came as described, fast shipping, works great. Bought it to stiffen front end because of snowplow. Thanks



by:

Easy to install, didn't affect ride, made carrying my plow much better.



by:

Works Great

by:

Works exactly how I needed. The Ride is still very nice. There's about 350lbs with the weight of the box & rack. Suspension in the rear used to sag a bunch, even with a 2" suspension lift.



by:

Install went fairly easy once I figured out the best spot to put the jack to lift the van. Really helped to have an oil filter wrench to get the old springs off the back. Took it out for a drive after an much better cornering and much less effect from wind and 18-wheelers. This was on a fairly windy day. No big difference in softness of the ride.



by:

I ordered these for my RAM Promaster 3500 because I had heard from fellow owners that they are a worthwhile addition, for increased stability on the road. The instructions are good, and they weren’t too hard to install myself. They are kind of expensive for a couple of rings of dense foam/plastic, but I guess they must be petty heavy duty. I look forward to my next trip to see how they perform.



by:

Ok installed outside january 27th. Temp 10 degree windchill -5. I used canola oil since it stays slippery when cold. I recommend taking off the tires. Also wirebrush the coil spring to get rust and debris off. Coat coil spring in canola oil. Also 1997 crv rear will require about 3/4"-1" off of the helper spring before hand. The driver side took 15-20 mins the passenger less than 5. My car rear was sagging it sits level or slightly above level now in the rear. Mileage of vehicle is 73k shocks struts and springs are original. Curt class 3 hitch is also installed on vehicle. I am curious to see how it does while pulling a 5x8 trailer. Overall seems good only time will tell. Wondering how installing two on a side would do?



by:

I could not place the SumoSprings in the middle of the coil springs to start installation. Rather I had to start lower on the coil springs, where the spacing is wider, and then slide the SumoSprings up to the middle.
I used a screwdriver run into the holes for that purpose to help slide the SumoSprings to the middle of the coil springs. Otherwise, the installation went well. There seems to be less squat in the rear of my '04 Highlander when my camping trailer is attached.



by:

Installed the CSS-1168R Coil SumoSprings Custom Helper spacers on a 2011 Honda Ridgeline 4 wheel drive rear springs. Installation took about 45 minutes including removal of tires. Once spacer was started the installation was easy.
Zip ties were a little more difficult because of the dust strut covers installed by Honda.



by:

I was very excited about these for my 4x4 2015 Nissan Frontier. I am not completely displeased with them because they do make a mild difference over bumps, but they aren't worth over 100 bucks no way, the fact that I had to CUT THEM to fit due to them being too long made me feel like the company does not due their research when manufacturing them. It was so long that it lapped the beginning on it, so in order to have them installed as shown on the instructions I had to cut nearly 3 inches off... Which meant I had to comely install them, mark then uninstall, cut to fit, then install again. For an item to cost this much I expected better build quality.

Bang for buck it's not worth it, it's overpriced and I wouldn't recommend them for that cost.



by:

Not easy to install. Took to a trailer shop for installation. Seem to stabilize my vehicle when towing, haven't towed after dark yet to see if oncoming traffic flash their lights at me.



by:

The installation was quick and easy. I did remove the tire to ease in the installation, it just made it easier for me. It took longer to stage the pictures for the review than install them. I took a measurement I think I gained a 1/4 to 1/2 inch in lift and doesn’t seem so floaty



by:

About all I can say for these is that they did raise the back of my Expedition EL about a 1/2". However, they didn't stay in place for even a year. As far as helping the ride of the truck with the travel trailer, I *think* it helped, but I really don't know if it is anything more than the placebo effect. I removed them before having Bilstein 5100 series shocks installed, with the spring collar set to raise .4", which did make a noticeable, positive difference in the way the truck handled when towing.



by:

Took a chance and ordered rears for my 2021 AWD Pacifica even though the AWD model wasn't listed. After cutting a couple of inches off they fit perfectly! Coils are tight so you'll need to unbolt the bottom shock bolt to gain an extra inch of decompression. Once installed there's no difference in ride hight or ride with the van unloaded. Once loaded up it gives the extra support needed to prevent scraping my muffler pulling in and out of driveways. I know this mod voids the warranty, but it was a chance worth taking.



by:

They were very easy to install. Yes I use the instructions. They help keep from blinding people from my headlights when I have people in the rear seats. Great product.



by:

I did not remove the front tire as I add more than enough room to slide them in. Quick and easy install. The front did not need to be trimmed.

  • What is the Difference Between the Coil SumoSprings Parts # CSS-1168 and # CSS-1168R
    All 3 options are the same Coil SumoSprings: # CSS-1168 # CSS-1168R # CSS-1168F The difference in the part numbers just has to do with R is for rear, F is for front and then we have the regular number in case someone is looking for the part to fit a specific end of their vehicle.

  • Suspension Enhancement Needed for 2015 Ram 1500 with 6 Lift and Front Winch and Off-Road Bumper
    As long as you have the 4WD version of the 2015 Ram 1500 then the Coil SumoSprings Custom Helper Springs for Coil Spring Suspension # CSS-1168F is the best option to help offset the load of your winch and off-road bumper. Since these install on the springs themselves you don't have to worry about finding a spacer to accommodate the 6" lift on your pickup. We have even been told by SuperSprings that you can install more than one of these on a single spring as long as there is enough room. Attached...

  • Suspension Enhancement For Front Axle of 2012 Ram 1500
    Actually the coils you mentioned are for the rear suspension of your truck and would not work for the front of it. What you can use though to support the front coils is the part # CSS-1168F which will give back some of the lost height you had.

  • Can Multiple Coil SumoSprings Be Used On a 2021 Ford Expedition
    The Coil SumoSprings Custom Helper Springs for Coil Spring Suspension part # CSS-1168F which are a fit for a 2021 Ford Expedition will help the coil springs from compressing which will in turn prevent sag/squat. There will only be one spacer per side needed. It would not be advised to install more than one per side as they would likely not fit and the ride would be very harsh if done so.

For your 2019 Ford Expedition 4WD Platinum you will want the Coil Spring Suspension item # CSS-1094F. These springs will reduce the sag of your front suspension when it is under a load such as installing a snowplow or a heavy grille guard.

  • What Is The Difference Between The Coil SumoSprings CSS-1094F And CSS-1168F?
    Though both the Coil SumoSprings # CSS-1094F and # CSS-1168F are listed as fitting your 2021 Ford Expedition, there is a difference between the two. That being the height of the spring. # CSS-1094F - 2.25" tall # CSS-1168F - 3" tall The # CSS-1168F will fit both 2 wheel and 4 wheel drive models, but the # CSS-1094F will fit only the 4 wheel drive models. You will need to measure the gap between coils on your springs to make sure which would be the better option for you.

  • Front Helper Springs for a 2000 Jeep Wrangler TJ Sahara with Sno-Way Snowplow
    For your 2000 Jeep Wrangler (TJ) I recommend Timbren front helper springs # TJFTJ. These springs will provide better support than the Coil SumoSprings. Air bags could be used, the durability is not an issue, but for this application I find air bags to be unnecessary. They require maintenance, you have to add and remove the air compared to the Timbren springs that require nothing after the initial installation.
