Rear Suspension Support

SumoSprings helper springs are great for pickup trucks. Towing or hauling a heavy 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 truck's weight. 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 factory suspension to level your vehicle, improve driving performance, and keep your ride comfortable.


SumoSprings Rebel installed showing separation of 2-piece springs

The innovative 2-piece design of these Rebel springs allows for unlimited suspension travel. This means that there will be more movement in your suspension when you're unloaded or off-roading, which makes your ride smoother and more comfortable.


Each spring has 2 pieces. One piece attaches to the frame of your vehicle. And the other piece attaches to the axle, typically above your existing factory leaf spring. The pieces come together to provide support when you are towing or hauling a heavy load. When you're unloaded, they separate so that they don't restrict the movement of your suspension. The closed-cell urethane springs also act like a shock absorber to dampen road vibration.


SumoSprings compressing under load

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 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 expand and 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.


This kit comes with custom-fit brackets that are designed to easily bolt onto your vehicle.

Dodge Ram Pickup

I like the Sumo Srings on my Ram thirty five hundred thinking about a pair for my fifth wheel trailer.



by:
Dodge Ram Pickup

We have a Ram 3500, carrying a 5000 lb (plus), extremely tall truck camper. The floor sits ABOVE the side rails of the truck bed. I came to the RV dealer, and of course, they would not let me have it till they inspected the truck. It HAD to be a dually to handle street corners. The inspector saw the air bags that the truck dealer had installed and commented that "You will be a lot better off when you buy some Sumo Springs. After one trip cross country, I ordered Sumo Springs, and have not regretted it since. Stabilizes this super high load on corners, cross winds, and general driving. At night, truckers no longer flash their headlights at us. This is the way to go.



by:

Swapped out a set of air bags for a pair of Sumo Springs. The truck now self-levels when I load my slide in camper or other heavy loads. Truck handles better as it's not floating on two balloons. More stability in turns and cross winds.



by:

Easy install. Took me like 30 mins to install. Haven't towed yet...but looking forward to the improvement



by:

Product bolted up as designed. An empty truck ride quality did not change. A loaded truck ride was good and could tell the extra stability they provided.



by:
2019 Ram 3500



by:

The front Sumo Springs made a major difference in the stability of my Winnebago motorhome. It handles the bumps much better without major jarring of the passengers and dampens the side to side motion in turns and under crosswinds.



by:

Sumo springs along with a steering stabizer, new shocks, and oversized sway bars seriously tightens the ride on older model RV with an f53 ford chasis. Long hauls become a lot less strenuous. I also put a memory foam and high density foam seat cushion on the driver's seat. We can travel all over with a lot less fatigue from fighting the wheel and pucker factor from blowing around the road. I took about 3 hours to unstall all 4 sumo springs.



by:

These helper springs made an amazing difference in the stability and ride comfort in our coach. Improved cornering and bounce control were immediately apparent. Plus, crosswind driving is much improved. The split design makes leveling easy as I typically raise the front of the coach rather than the rear. Installation is a lot of work, but can be done yourself with the right equipment. Very pleased.



by:

The work great! Was going to go with the Air-Ride air bags in the front but folks had noted that the bags are strained when the leveling pulls the front wheels up to the point of coming off the ground. Glad we went with these. The person I put this on for is Handicap (or Handicapable as she says!) and these do not require air or making sure the pressure(s) are correct and holding.
It was a pain in the butttt get the original jounce bumper off the drivers side, but we muscled through it!! Thanks, Amy, for your help in ordering!! v



by:

Ordered the sumo springs on a Thursday and received them on a Thursday used the on line video they have had had them installed in no time this isn’t the only product I have gotten from them and will continue to use them great service



by:

We have a 2009 build F53 chassis on our 2010 Windsport 32A. I ordered these Sumo springs for the front axle. Hated how bad our coach dashboard would shake and rattle when going over bridge transitions, potholes, and concrete roadway section breaks. Took about an hour and were easy to install alone. Couldn't believe how much these helped the front axle. Worked so well I recently bought a set for the rear axle also. Those are a bit harder to install due to having to drill holes in frame rails to mount the upper bracket and glad I had friend to assist me. Would have only taken a little longer without the help but still easy to do by basic mechanic skills. With having both now we can certainly tell the difference and wished I had bought them sooner.



by:

I think they helped with the side to side roll I put on front and back sumo’s the roadmaster sway bar and front safety steer. Drove from Michigan to Utah . I think the ford f-53 is not a great place to start



by:

A friend and I installed these, if was not difficult to figure out and was a big savings. My wife noticed the difference without knowing it. On a trip to a frequent location she would complain the entire trip after installation on the same trip she did not complain at all. Success!



by:

The installation went very well. The ride seemed smooth.



by:

My THOR motor coach has the Ford F-53 chassis. I rides like a truck. That should not be surprising as "it is a truck." I purchased and installed these Sumo Springs and even though it will never be "air bag" suspension, the Sumo Spring made a wonderful difference in improving the ride. I would recommend this add on to everyone and as I meet similar motor coaches on the road, I show them the Sumo Springs and I do recommend them.



by:

Just Installed my Sumo Rear Springs. They went in real easy on my Dodge Ram 3500. The thing that took the most time on the install was jacking up the frame 3-4" to make enough space between the axle base and top of frame to slip in the entire lower and top sections of the Sumo Springs. Once I did that, I narrowed that space by letting the frame down a little but not all the way. Just enough to catch the receiving spring and leaving a half inch gap between the two sections. This allowed me to easily rachet the bottom u-clap without a problem and keep good alighment. I know I'm going to love this product once I hitch up. No more 2' drop in the rear end once hooking up to my 15k 5th wheel. These springs are stout but no so stout I'll beat the hell out of my body when hunting the rutted roads of the great North West. Thank you Jessie for your expertise and steering me toward the perfect application to meet my pulling and off-road needs.



by:

Front and rear Sumo Springs installed. Have not had a chance to hit the highway as yet. Locally a very good ride. Thanks to Joanne K. for all of her help.



by:

Preston did a great job helping me spec in the correct springs for my 2016 Thor Hurricane 27K on a F53 chassis. Placed order with him over phone and received springs two day's later. I just installed them and took Motor home on a test drive around town on bumpy streets and what a difference it made. Drives more like a truck now and less like a boat. I also installed a steering stabilizer spring and did the cheap handling fix to the sway bars. Well worth the time and effort. I did notice that the etralier installation video shows the bottom brackets of the spring installed with the "U" down which is opposite the mfg's printed instructions. I did mine according to the printed instructions cause it seemed to make more sense. Probably no big deal either way.
Thanks etrailer. I'll be contacting you guys when ready to do the back end of my motor home.



by:

The product was delivered on time and is installed. The SuperSprings are as advertised. They were a little difficult to install as Winnebago run some cables in the way and were difficult to move.



by:

I really like the improved ride that these SumoSprings made in the ride of my motorhome. I changed out the old style Sumos for these two piece Sumos and would definitely do it again. It doesn't necessarily take away the bumps but it makes them smoother or not as hard of a bump. Also James was very helpful and easy to work with while placing my order and kept me informed on the status of my order.



by:

Immediate improvement in sway control and ease of driving. I installed these in a few hours at my leisure. Did I mention I am 65? 2019 Winnebago Sunstar 35LX



by:

My driver said the ride in his truck improved dramatically with a loaded gooseneck trailer, we'll definitely be getting these for all of our trucks this winter



by:

THEY WORK GREAT MADE MY FR3 HANDLES SO NICE NOW THEY SHOULD BE ON ALL NEW RVS



by:

The Sumo mount had to be slightly modified on the drivers side (removed a 1/2" by 1/2" chunk of the plate) with a grinder to get it to fit on my 2022 f350 4x4. I contacted the manufacturer prior to making the modification. They did not have an issue. The Sumo reduced truck squat (approx 3/4") allowing the truck to ride level with a trailer (8k hitch mount and 17k gooseneck). When you hit a pothole, the impact felt in the truck was jarring and caused the truck to become unstable. The Sumo eliminated this problem. I chose the blue over the yellow after watching a video on etrailer about ride comfort. I added front Sumos after I installed the rear Sumos. The rear provided the a more noticeable improvement. I chose Sumos over air bags because they eliminated air leak maintenance and air pressure adjustments depending on the load.

    Yes, the SumoSprings Rebel Custom Helper Springs # SSR-301-47-2 you referenced will fit and also help with the sagging you've been experiencing while towing your fifth wheel.

  • Recommended Rear Axle Suspension Kit for 2018 Ram 3500 DRW with 5000-lb Truck Bed Camper
    If you want a rear-axle suspension support kit for your 2018 Ram 3500 dually to help with sag from your 5000-lb truck bed camper, but you do not want an adjustable air bag kit, then I suggest the Super Springs jounce spring kit # SSR-301-47-2. These jounce springs are rated for 4600-lbs, closer to the camper's weight, and like the leaf spring kit it installs without any drilling. These springs will both provide leveling under load and absorption of road shock. Progressive resistance means...

    Thanks for the picture! I do believe the SumoSprings Rebel Custom Helper Springs item # SSR-301-47-2 you were looking at will significantly improve the ride comfort of your 2017 Ram 3500. These springs have a two piece design that do not come in contact until weight is put on the rear of your truck. The 5,000 lbs capacity will absorb bumps and road shock while also minimizing sway. This will make for a more comfortable travel experience for you and your horses. Another issue I noticed...
