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.

This solved the problem of the my 2016 F150 sagging when I have my work trailer hooked up. They lifted the rear of my truck up 2 3/8 inch from what it was. Funny thing is, its only 3/4 inch from the factory height. Now I will say I can tell a difference in the ride being alot stiffer when the trailer is connected. The difference when not using the trailer is just a little more stiff. I did use the spacers. I also complained to the staff at etrailer because of the stupid shipping times. I originally purchased the springs on 8/27/21 and according to the website, I was supposed to receive them by 8/31/21. Well that didn't happen. I even called and complained, but the blame was on the USPS. I didn't receive them until 9/7/21. The arrival date was the same on the free shipping as with the paid shipping according to the website, but they are wrong about that.


Comments
I apologize about the slow wait for your items. I do show that it shipped on 827 and it did go US mail. If you need your item faster next time, I would not go with the free shipping.

These things are awesome! Exactly what I was looking for to stop the sagg from towing my camper with my 2015 f-150


Comments
Still as it was when installed. Does what its supposed to do. Only partially negative affect is the ride when using this truck for my daily communtes on Michigan terrible condition roads, makes for an extra firm bounce.

Got them installed 2 days ago did not need to raise the truck off the ground. I installed them with the 1" spacer and drove the truck for a day. Since the springs were touching the axle tube it made the truck ride stiffer, took the 1" spacer out, and got the original ride back. Getting the trailer out this weekend will see how well they work with about 7800 lbs hooked up.

This installation was on a 2014 F-150. I tow a Winnebago Micro-Mini 5th wheel with a hitch weight of 1,060 lbs. Frame to axle stock was 7.5 inches. The Sumo springs without the spacer lifted my PU 0.5 inches. The Sumo springs are always in contact with the axle so my ride has greatly changed. As I am an outdoorsman and travel on a lot of gravel roads fishing and hunting, I will have to remove the Sumo springs when I am not using the trailer as the ride is totally unbearable on any unpaved road. As for using the Sumo springs with the 5th wheel, when loaded the springs compress 0.5 inches to a axle to frame distance of 7.5 inches (ie stock) The ride with the camper is very stable and there is no excessive bounce. The springs perform very well when loaded. In my research of this product it is advertised that there is a 1 inch gap between the sumo spring and the frame to allow for a comfortable ride. That is not true and is the reason for my poor review.

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.

Installed easy, work well. Transfer of downward weight became much more manageable allowing level towing of a heavy load. Unloaded, my F150 is a little bumpier, but not uncomfortable. Make sure you look close at difference between 2x4 and 4x4 units.

1 year review of Sumo springs on 2017 Ford F150. Install was very easy, initially used the 1" spacer, but ride without trailer was too rough. Removed the spacer and ride was almost as smooth as truck was originally. The springs definitely helped the ride and control when I attached my travel trailer. I would recommend the springs to anyone who pulls a trailer or carries heavy loads.

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


Comments
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.

My 2015 F150 Platinum sagged in the back end when I hooked up my 25 ft travel trailer. These were easy to install and fixed my problem. I had concerns that I would lose my ride, but that was not the case. I love them and would highly recommend them if you are having the same issues as I did.

Massive improvement to my 2018 Max Tow package F-150s towing stability with a 7500lb GVW travel trailer. Does not eliminate chucking and such, but dampens all of the undesirable movements to a negligible level. Towed over 5000 miles with Sumo Springs front and rear, and would not tow without them.

Ordering from Etrailer was great. Fantastic customer service and fast shipping. The Sumo Springs installed very easily in less than an hour. The additional suspension support feels like it is going to help greatly while pulling my 28' 6500# travel trailer with my F150. It has a bit stiffer ride while not towing but I'd say it is minimal. I think this is going to work well thank you Etrailer and thank you Emily in customer service!

In regards to the SumoSprings, you will always want to have a safety margin and the above will be perfect for your setup.

    Jounce-style springs like the SumoSprings # SSR-117-47 you referenced for the rear axle of your 2018 Ford F-150 do a great job of allowing your truck to better support heavier loads, but they aren't going to eliminate sag.
