Rear Suspension Support

Towing or hauling a heavy load can cause rear 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 Review of SuperSprings Vehicle Suspension - Jeep Gladiator Rear Axle Suspension Enhancement - SS62XR

Hi there. I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today, we're going to take a quick look at the SumoSprings Solo Custom Helper Springs. These are going to upgrade your vehicles, rear suspension. It's going to help improve your control and comfort as you're driving down the road. This will help to keep your vehicle level while you're towing or hauling a heavy load.

It's also going to help absorb bumps and shocks to kind of smooth out the ride make it more comfortable for you. And they're also going to help minimize sway. These are designed specifically for your 2020 and newer Jeep Gladiator. They are going to install very easily. You're not going to have to do any drilling.

Basically, you just remove your factory bump stops and put these up in their place. So very easy to get installed. Most people, when you think about a suspension enhancement system the most prevalent thought for most people is airbags. So these are going to be a little bit different from airbags. There's going to be some benefits and some disadvantages to these.

The biggest advantage is that these are going to be a constant workhorse. So you're not going to have to do a whole lot of adjustment for these. Whereas with airbags, you have to make sure that you have the minimum amount of air in the bag at all times, and then you have to manually inflate them depending on your load. These are made of a micro-cellular urethane. So they're going to work to continually.

You're not going to have to air them up or anything like that. They are very dense material. They're going to work really well in temperatures ranging from -25 degrees Fahrenheit all the way up to 200 degrees Fahrenheit. And they'll also resist damage from oils, road salts, and UV rays. So they're going to be very resistant and very low maintenance. Like I said, I'm not going to have to worry about changing them from one load to another. They have a progressive load control. So basically the spring is going to compress according to the weight of your cargo. So under light loads, the springs will compress very easily. So it's gonna give you a nice soft engagement to cushion that ride give you a less bumpy ride. The heavier, the load the more the springs are gonna compress and that's going to make them a lot firmer for you. So it's going to give you more support as you add more weight. These do have a max weight capacity of 1000 pounds. Now keep in mind that's not going to increase your vehicle's weight carrying capacity. No vehicle suspension system is going to increase your weight capacity. It's all across the board whether it's airbags, Sumo Springs, or others they're just there to help support your system. So think of it less like a second set of hands that's helping you lift more weight. Think of it, more like a back brace. It's there to just kind of help support make sure that it's not gonna damage your system. Just kind of help to increase the longevity of your suspension system. So these are going to do a much better job than your factory bump stops of engaging softly and helping to give that support up to that 1000 pounds. These springs do work independently. So if you do have an off center load you've got a heavy water tank or gas tank or something on the one side of your Jeep. That's making that side heavier. That one side will compress to give you more support there. The other side will still be independent. So if you are taking sharp turns or something like that, the weight is going to be distributed independently. So it's going to work really well for you. These do have a lateral minimal lateral expansion so they are going to compress vertically. So it's not going to take up much space. You're not going to have to worry about them getting damaged, going off to the side getting pinched or anything like that. So it's going to be great for your tight spaces. So these are a really nice option compared to airbags. You're not gonna have the adjustability that airbags give you so you can't air up one side more than the other. You're not going to have to worry about the maintenance. Like I said, making sure that it's always got air in it but you are going to lose some of that adjustability that airbags might give you. So depending on whether you want just a set it and forget it kind of suspension system or an adjustable suspension system would determine whether you would want these or an airbag. These are my preference personally. I like being able to just get them installed the one time and never have to worry about it again. They're just gonna always be there to help you out your suspension and give it some extra support. These are made here in the USA, so you can trust they're made to the high quality standards that we've come to know and trust for products that are made here in the US. They do come with a limited lifetime warranty. So if you we're to have any problems with them you're more than welcome to reach out to us. We're always happy to work with our customers make sure that you're getting good quality products and having a good experience. So I think these are gonna do a really good job for you. You will probably notice a substantial difference between these and your factory bump stops. Just giving you a little bit more cushion as you're going down the road and more support if you have a heavy loads in the back of your Jeep. So that's going to complete our look for today. Again, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Thanks for watching..

Review from a similar SumoSprings Solo in Vehicle Suspension


We pull an off-road teardrop camper with our 2013 Toyota Tacoma and were looking for a little help with the rear end sag when we have that hitched plus putting some weight in the back of the truck (firewood, water, etc). Our Tacoma is lifted (2.5") but the lift kept the stock springs with an added Deaver leaf to help with the notoriously soft Toyota springs. However, with the shell and ~300 pounds of weight in the back, it still sagged, especially with another 250 lbs of tongue weight from the trailer. The Sumos have eliminated that sag, even with bigger loads in the bed, eliminated body roll (also notoriously bad with Tacomas) and didn't destroy the ride for day to day driving. There might be a slight bit more stiffness when hitting speed bumps, but definitely not bad at all. If anything, I would say it IMPROVED the ride and handling. The springs themselves were simple to install, less than half an hour start to finish. Some reviews have said they were bumping the frame after installing but we had about 1/2" gap on both sides. The only "specialty" tool would be a torque wrench capable of 90 lbs to get it to spec. We considered Firestone air bags but after talking with the reps at e-trailer, we decided on these and couldn't be happier. Reasonably priced (half the price of air bags), no maintenance, great customer service...can't argue with anything at all.


Comments
One year and working better than I imagined it would. Carrying loads in my Tacoma is no longer an exercise in fear and my shocks are way happier happier with a little help!

Review from a similar SumoSprings Solo in Vehicle Suspension


Instructions were adequate. installer has to contribute to the outcome with bolt cleaning, match marking axle saddle and finding out "u" bolt torque value. I think the mount should be radiused where the "u" bolt contacts it as opposed to the square edge. Was unnecessary to jack up truck to get clearance to screw on spring, I put a wood between frame and leaf and raised the box 1/2" with a wedge. I got the ride height I was looking for, the blue springs are very close to offsetting trailer tounge weight allowing for a bit of takeup with my Andersen hitch. Barely noticeable change in unloaded rear end stiffness.

Couldn’t have been a simpler install! Total time was less than 15 minutes which included digging the floor jack out, blocking the tires and cleanup. Makes a heck of a difference in keeping the nose of the truck up when towing trailer or hauling 16 golf cart batteries.


Comments
Still awesome. A year later, have hauled up to 16 golf cart batteries with no issues due to the weight. A real help in getting the work done without the fear of bottoming out.

I have an ARE Overland camper shell on my 2019 Toyota Tacoma. Installed these to help with the over all ride especially over hard bumps. Sounded like I was hitting the bump stops hard. Installed and ride did improve for the back. Also less body roll. P.s. George J is the best! Always on it when it comes to getting parts out!.

Review from a similar SumoSprings Solo in Vehicle Suspension


Not driven under load, but think it is the answer. I may have to remove the spacer. I had to have them installed, not as easy /smooth as their video portrays. The instructions do not advise as what it suppose to look like (for F350 SRW) . IE: barely touching the axel? Above the axle? The 2800 load was recommended, I will follow up after my RV trip. I want it to set level, but not ride stiff W/O a load.


Comments
You are going to want at least 1 inch of space between the bottom of the spring and the axle otherwise it will create a rough ride. I do recommend removing the spacer.

Super easy to install, and is a perfect fitting, direct replacement of OEM hardware. Half an hour, and done. Don’t forget to torque fasteners properly, and use Type-E torque seal/mark, to do it like a pro.


Comments
Way better ride and control over the airbags with on board compressor. F250, Lance 825 For my application, yellow Sumo Springs are a superior product. And 110 the cost!

Review from a similar SumoSprings Solo in Vehicle Suspension


We love our Sumos. They are easy to install and they helped with our sway and jouncing. Unfortunately, we just added a new rear suspension package which lifted the rear about 2 inches. Now the Sumos don’t touch the axle and won’t provide much sway damping. They act now more like a very fancy jounce bumper. Still good to know that the rear Sumos will give us extra protection should we hit a wicked pothole. Front sumos still snug against the axle and helping with sway and crosswinds

This is one of the best upgrades ever. The sumo springs were like adding pillows to the back. Took out the bad body roll and rear shock chatter from the factory junk rancheros. On my Sierra 1500 2017 z71. Easiest install and upgrade spent on this truck.

2018 silverado z71 crew cab 6'6 bed Replaced air bags with 1000# sumo springs. Do a lot of offroading and bags limited travel. With these I can use my suspension and stay level on the trip with all my gear. Nicer ride unloaded and even sweeter when loaded. Easy 40 min install if you're use to working on your own stuff. A definite upgrade.

The springs do work fine on my 2013 tacoma , really help prevent sway when pulling my 15ft travel trailer . needed to cut some foam off the top to get some clearance for the shocks to work .

After a year or so the sumos are working fine under all of the trailers and loads I have been able to haul or pull

Review from a similar SumoSprings Solo in Vehicle Suspension


I found these springs while researching a towing question. I was more than impressed with portrayal of part, adequate info and glowing reviews. I was further delighted by speed of arrival and impressed with branding of the packaging. Top notch. Front and back installed in about an hour. Instructions are clear. I did find it easier to pre-assemble the stop to the bracket in order to determine if I was going to use the spacer or not. (I did). Note on this RV chassis, the bracket mount stud had to also clear an additional harness bracket. There was adequate threads for locknut

I would have give it a 5star but the bolts are 1/4” I think it should be at least minimum of 3/8” or1/2” bolts to hold the sumo springs. I like them toed the camper handles very well. Wishi got these a long time ago worth getting. With out camper can tell that it’s there but rides ok. I wanted the same ride it not quite. I ask what the how high they are said 5” with bracket but it’s actually 6” with bracket see picture. I would recommend getting the sumo springs ssr-610-47.

Review from a similar SumoSprings Solo in Vehicle Suspension


Added these to my 2001 Chevy Silverado 1500 (regular bed, regular cab) after noticing the original bump stops were missing. I use my truck frequently for hauling, and occasionally for towing. Pros -- really tightened-up the suspension. When towing and when the truck is loaded, it performs much better. I don't doubt these have increased the amount the truck can safely carry and tow. The truck even seems to corner better. Cons -- These really tightened-up the suspension. When driving unloaded, the truck rattles you more than it used to. Though they are called "helper" springs, they are basically constantly helping, even if you are unloaded. Ultimately, it's a trade-off, and if you use your truck for its intended purpose, then it's a good trade. But if you primarily want comfort driving an empty vehicle on the interstate, then this upgrade is not for you.

took about 45 mins to a hour to install mostly because of bolt up other wise probably 30 min install if bolt up was not in such a tight location. I did leave out the spacers which left me with about a 1 inch gap where as I had about 3 before install with OEM bump stops. I have not loaded a trailer on my truck yet but I did load around a 1000lb bail of hay right after install into the bed and you could not really see a drop in the back. Moment of truth will be when I load my travel travel which is the main reason I bought these due to sag. 2014 Ram 1500 4x4

Love the product fairly easy to install. Took just about two hours for all four Sumosprings. The front was a bit more challenging and I’ve seen somewhere else about using a plastic bag that you can cut up and inserted in the 13 mm deep socket, this will keep the nut in place while threading. Your videos are very helpful and strongly suggest that you create a how too for the front replacement

The Sumosprings solved the bad wind swaying problem in my 2016 Roadtrek Simplicity RV built on a Ram Promaster 3500 high roof chassis. Before it was white knuckle driving, now it drives like a sedan. My local RV dealer installed them for a one hour labor charge. The improvement is amazing! Right before going bankrupt, Roadtrek began putting SumoSprings on their special "National Parks" vehicle - they are a necessary addition!

still handles very well. A very necessary upgrade!

Review from a similar SumoSprings Solo in Vehicle Suspension


The installation was a bit slower as this was a 2002 GMC Sierra 1500 and the bump stop did not have the bolt in the hollow opening. Instead, the bump stop and cup came off by removing a nut between the bracket and frame. Access to that bolt is more difficult but doable with an open end wrench. Then use the provided spacer and in my case one washer, and the provided nut and bolt to secure the spacer. The Sumo spring then simply screws on. Both fit very well leaving a gap between the spring and Axle. This installation was on a quadrasteer Denali. Very pleased with etrailer's written instructions (although a video for this vintage truck would have been great) and their delivery time.

So managing a travel nurse's life we tow all over the country.. The Sumo spring has helped tremendously with ride level and stability for tens of thousands of miles in this first year.. With no hassle of leaky air hoses or blown bags along your ride it is by far one of the easiest ways to help support your load!!!!

Pretty easy install on a Winnebago Solis, built on the Ram Promaster 3500 chassis, took about an hour to install on all 4 wheels. I only parked on a level surface and used the factory jack, didn’t even lift the van off the ground all the way but enough for clearance to install, no tire removal done. I gained about an inch of clearance which is nice for my onboard generator and hoping for a better ride on windy days. The pictures are before and after of (in order) front, rear, size difference of Sumo vs. oem and the generator.
