SuperSprings Vehicle Suspension - CSS-1168R

Get the cushioning power of SumoSprings for your coil springs and keep your ride comfortable. The wedge-shaped springs fit between the individual coils of your existing springs and help support heavy loads on your rear suspension.


Features:

  • Helper spring inserts increase ride comfort and enhance your coil suspension's ability to support loads
    • Inner core of microcellular polyurethane foam provides cushioning and support
  • Adjusts progressively to the weight of your load - the more you load onto your vehicle, the stiffer they become
  • Reduces body roll and helps level your truck
  • Withstands extreme temperatures
  • Durable springs resist damage caused by abrasion, oil, road salt and UV rays
  • Installs easily on rear coils
    • Inserts between the individual coils of each coil spring
    • Custom fit for your vehicle
    • Comes with additional zip-ties to aid in holding the helper springs in place
  • Requires no maintenance
  • Includes 2 helper springs
  • Made in the USA


Specs:

  • Application: rear coil spring suspensions
  • Designed to work with a suspension system that is in good working order
  • Coil SumoSprings will not increase your vehicle's weight-carrying capacity. Do not exceed the manufacturer's weight limit for your vehicle.
  • Dimensions:
    • Overall height: 3"
    • Inside groove height: 1-3/4"
    • Diameter: trim to fit
  • 5-Year limited warranty for non-commercial applications
  • 2-Year limited warranty for commercial applications


Insert these helper springs in between the individual coil loops in your rear coil springs to defeat driver fatigue and add better support for heavy loads. Most factory coil suspensions have a difficult time hauling added weight. The rear coils may struggle with supporting the extra load placed on your rear axle when you're towing a trailer or using a hitch-mounted cargo carrier or bike rack. 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 driving to your campsite.


Coil SumoSpring installed between rungs of coil spring

Inside each helper spring, a core of microcellular polyurethane foam adds cushioning between your coils to make your ride more comfortable. Each doughnut-shaped spring has H-shaped channels at the top and bottom that fit to the rung of an individual coil in your rear coil springs. Included zip-ties also aid in securing the helper springs to your coil springs. The cushioning absorbs shock, but also works progressively to better support weight, keeping your truck level.


Unlike air springs that fit inside your coil springs, these polyurethane springs require no air pressure monitoring, and they are easier to install. Say goodbye to air lines, valves and air tanks and hello to maintenance-free suspension support. Unbumpify your ride with Coil SumoSprings for coil suspensions.

Video Transcript for SuperSprings Vehicle Suspension - Rear Axle Suspension Enhancement - CSS-1168R Review

Today we're going to review part number CSS-1168. This is by Super Springs, these are the coil Sumo springs custom helper springs for front or rear axle coil spring suspensions. This is a custom fit part number, it is designed to fit many vehicles. What I would recommend is to go to our website and on our Fit Guide, put in your year and model vehicle and it will show if this part number will work for your application. This does come with two helper springs, some zip ties to hold them in place and some detailed instructions. These helper spring inserts will increase the ride comfort and enhance your coil suspension's ability to support loads. The inner core of this spring is a micro-cellular polyurethane foam, provided cushioning and support.

They do adjust progressively to the weight of your load so the more load you put on your vehicle the stiffer they become, helps reduce body roll, helps level your truck and it's able to withstand extreme temperatures. They are very durable springs to help resist damage caused by abrasion, oil, road salt and even UV rays. They do install very easily on your front or rear suspension coils. They do insert between the individual coils of each coil spring. Again they are custom fit for your vehicle and they come with these additional zip ties to aid in holding these springs in place. They require no maintenance and again this part includes the two heper springs and they are made in the USA.

Again the application for this is front or rear coil spring suspensions and they are designed to work with a suspension system that is in good working order. One last note is that you want to make sure these, that you know that these coil Sumo springs will not increase your vehicle's weight carrying capacity. We do make sure you do not exceed the manufacturer's weight limit for your vehicle. That should do it for the review of part number CSS-1168. These are by Super Springs, they are the coil Sumo springs custom helper springs for front or rear axle coil spring suspensions. .

I installed these on my 2010 Toyota Highlander FWD before starting a year long trip towing a 18ft camper trailer around the western USA. The Highlander did not have any options to “beef up” the rear suspension, so I installed these on the rear springs. They improved the ride and reduced the rear end “squatting”. We are 7 months and 13,000 into the trip and they are still doing great. 618035

So Far they have performed as advertised! Easy installation except they don't give you enough zip ties for both sides. I do notice the ride being more level and a bit stiffer which is exactly what I wanted. Thanks Sumo 448831

I have a 2015 Toyota Highlander with a hitch mounted cargo box and am moving and vacationing at the same time. Therefore have a lot of weight in the vehicle, though not even close to the max vehicle weight or axel weight. However the vehicle significantly sags in the rear. I'm glad I found theses helper springs as they did make a significant difference in reducing the sag (probably by an inch) and therefore handling of the vehicle (steering, body roll, etc.). I was actually very surprised at the difference it made in the handling. To note, I drove with the load without the helper springs from VA To SCand then with the helper springs from SC to OH before reviewing. They were also very easy to install. I only jacked up the rear end and slipped them on (without soapy water) in less than 15 mins with zip ties. The results from the product were well worth the purchase and will be recommending to friends and family. In regards to Etrailer, they ended up being out of stock after I purchased the item and they quickly called to let me know and when they'd become available (only a couple days for them to get the product, no big deal). Always great customer service. 282917

I installed on a 2014 Ford Expedition EL. I should have done this last year, it made it handle like it was new again both loaded down and when it was just me driving. It also retained the stock ride feeling with no harsh or roughness to speak of. For the folks that have a strut style rear suspension and put any kind if weight in their suv's and/or pull a tralier, this is a must. Also, no mentionable increase in ride height. 403904

As far as I can tell it has helped towing. I am not the best mechanic but was able to work through install of product. For my suv air bags were not something I wanted to install so this has been a great alternative 528343

2014 Toyota Highlander These Highlander things have the wiggles & leans badly, certain roads are worse than others, but after I installed these (About 20 Min. Total and Very Simple.) There is a definite improvement ! Although these seem way over priced, I am hoping they will last a heck of a long time, but only time will tell?? So If you can afford them it will make a positive improvement and dampen those dreaded wiggles & leans. I have yet to pull my trailer or add the wheel chair lift,but I am happy just with the way they are without it. 241910

I received the Sumo Springs Coil Helper yesterday and was able to install it in less than an hour on my 2007 Odyssey. May be even quicker if I had a better jack(i had to lift one side at a time). My van now has raised significantly. With a three Mountain bike rack, camping gear loaded with the roof box, the van's rear end was too sagged. I gained close to two inches after installation. I do notice a difference in the cushioning, but that is very marginal. Overall, I am very happy about this product and would recommend if your car's rear end needs a lift/ support. Installation was very simple with the hand soap applied. I will do a follow-up review after few weeks when I put a few hundred miles for my summer trips. 538473

2007 Toyota Highlander

Here's my story and I'm sticking to it. First off, the Toyota Highlander is built on a car suspension, not a truck suspension, so a lot of the towing accessories you can get for trucks do not apply. I have a boat and trailer that weight approximately 2200 lbs, and the tongue weight although not too big causes the rear end of my highlander to sink a bit more than I'd like, and you could feel the car suspension bounce a little bit too much when the trailer bounced. I purchased this product and had my mechanic install it. It did just what I expected, and the ride is much better now. Plus when the trailer is not attached, the little bit of rise makes the vehicle look meaner to the point where I might just paint sharks teeth on the front bumpers (okay maybe not, but I thought about it). 248527

Not as easy to install as noted in the documentation; Otherwise, they are performing as advertised. I have not lost the ride quality yet I noticed a difference pulling our fully loaded trailer with the Jeep or the bikes. Much better handling. I would have preferred air bags, but these are doing the job. 555912

Couldn't install them. Coil spacing on Expedition was exactly the solid rubber height, so couldn't bend the upper groove lip under and around coil. Gonna buy a real tow vehicle with a solid axle. 171971



- CSS-1168R
by:
2004 Toyota Highlander

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. 146775

There still seems to be less squat with my camping trailer attached. It is leveled out a bit.

2016 Ford Expedition

Purchased the Coil Sumo Spring for my 2015 Ford Expedition 4x4. First, the guys at etrailer provided me with awesome customer support when I inadvertently ordered the wrong product. They were able to quickly get the correct part shipped to me. I normally tow a 16 ft. enclosed trailer which would cause my Expedition to seriously squat due to the IRS setup. Needless to say, this was not safe for towing as it noticeably unloaded my front wheels. After a little research, the Coil Sumo Spring seemed like an easy way to alleviate some of this issue, so I made my purchase. Product arrived a day earlier than expected and showed no signs of damage. I watched a few videos online and discovered that most people struggled getting the sumo spring installed. I appeared to me that the install would be straight forward for anyone with little to moderate mechanical skills. I prepared me vehicle by jacking the rear and setting the frame rails on jack stands. Following removal of both rear tires, I cleaned the coil springs with dish soap as indicated on the included instructions. I then put straight dish soap on the coil sumo spring to ease installation. The sumo spring went in with minor effort on my part on both sides. Start to finish was a total of 55 minutes. With the sumo springs installed, my Expedition's static ride height was raised about 1". Unloaded ride quality seems to have improved slightly by reducing the "bounce" Expeditions tend to have in the rear. It feels more controlled over bumps and planted to the ground. With the before mentioned trailer hooked up, there was considerable less squat. The feel of the road via the front wheels was dramatically improved. I feel more confident pulling the trailer as the tow vehicle and trailer are now level. I highly recommend the Coil Sumo Spring for anyone with a similar vehicle. Even if you do not tow regularly, the improved ride quality by reducing the bounce will be greatly appreciated. The customer service from the etrailer folks was top notch! 486347

I can't say anything about their performance because I haven't pushed them yet in my 2011 Highlander. I can say that installation was so easy that that my 12 year old daughter was able to install them by herself while I handled the trailer wiring harness. I don't see any reason they won't help the sag that my Highlander has when it has a full load of people and gear even without a trailer. 548807

2006 Ford Expedition

I tow a 32ft travel trailer with my 2006 Ford Expedition. I am not over my max tow limit but I am close to it. while towing even with my weight distribution hitch I felt the vehicle had too much front lift and too much rear squat for my liking. After looking around and not finding a lot of towing accessories for my vehicle I found the Sumo Coil Springs and decided to give them a try. Install was pretty easy and I did remove my wheels to give me more room to work. after installing the Sumo Springs I found that stock ride height had increased by about 1/2" to 3/4" in the rear and the ride quality had not been realy changed. After hooking up my travel trailer I now have an acceptable rear squat of about 1 1/2" and the front lift is only 1/2" and the trailer tows great. 74749

Hello Patrick, I still thing the springs are great. They seem to still function today the same as they did a year ago. The only thing I had to do to the was install better and more zip ties on the springs than what came with them in the box, to better hold them in their proper position.Thanks for the follow up.

Overall I'm happy with these booster springs. They went on in about 25 minutes total time, and they improved the sagging in the rear when we're loaded up with people or have the boat trailer hooked up. Will increase the rating to 5 stars once I make sure they continue to their job even after repeated loading cycles. 647735

The product helped to stabilize the steering on my 2003 Expedition. The front end would tend to get "unsprung" when one hit a bump or depression in the road. The product increased my steering reliability on a recent 400 mile trip with my Jayco travel trailer. The installation was not so easy. I had to surrender and bring my Expedition into a shop to get the product installed. They had to take the rear struts apart to install the product. The product improved the handling on my vehicle which was the intent of the purchase. I am satisfied with the performance. Just wish it didn't cost me $176 to get them installed. 105371

Review from a similar SuperSprings SumoSprings Coil in Vehicle Suspension


Initial reaction is positive - I installed front and rear sumo helper springs yesterday (5-23-19) and did a test drive around the block. The side to side pitching of our Transit Class B+ motorhome was greatly reduced. I still need to test on highway. I did not install the optional spacers that increase the ride height and reaction time of the rear sumo springs. The spacers will be added later if needed. 646452

The instructions, well!! lack a bit of detail. My first instinct was to return them . I called the manufactures tech line ,and got the 10-36 asap. ........ after that the install was a breeze !! I am in the opinion these helper springs will stiffen the rear coil enough to balance a heavier tongue or small trailer weight. 65535

Depending on what a moderate load is, yes they can offset the trailer tongue weight nicely. Let us know what weight you're working with, it will help give us a better picture of your needs. Also, how far down does the Tahoe squat when you hook up the loaded trailer?

Review from a similar SuperSprings SumoSprings Coil in Vehicle Suspension


Works great for what I needed. I had issues with the rear of the 2016 Highlander bottoming out when loaded (5 people, luggage and a hitch bike rack). After installing this, the ride has improved. I had 5 people, full interior cargo area, 21 cubic foot cargo box on top and a hitch cargo carrier. While I did get some sag in the rear, I did not have the harsh bottom outs that I was getting with a much less loaded vehicle before. 425538

The Sumo coil springs helpers did help with the rear spring sag and subsequent unweighting of the front end when my 2015 Toyota Highlander is hooked to our 20 ft 3,000 lb Winnebago Micro Minnie trailer. The steering felt better after installing the Sumos, but I had hoped for a bit more support from them, however the situation is definitely better with them than without them. 312051

Super easy installation onto the rear coils of my 2008 Ford Escape. Definitely use a soap solution to help slide the device onto the coils. No noticeable different to the ride when unloaded, but prevents sag when carrying my dirt bike (250 lbs) on a hitch-mounted carrier. 517416

Been a year now with the SumoSprings, and they've been outstanding! No pictures but have a hitch and cargo carrier on the back of our 2005 Prius, and have loaded it down with four people, all our gear, plus a pressure washer and hose on the back carrier. Kept it level with no handling issues! No issues and looks good empty also. Easy to install, just pulled off the wheels to make it easier, zip-tied in place. So far so awesome.-Joe 249343

  • Recommendation for Weight Distribution System for Towing Horse Trailer on 2015 Ford Expedition
  • When selecting a weight distribution system for towing a horse trailer with your 2015 Ford Expedition you will need to first calculate your total tongue weight. This will include both the tongue weight of your fully loaded trailer and anything loaded behind the rear axle of your Ford Expedition. If we safely estimate around 200 lbs behind the rear axle of your vehicle, we can calculate your total tongue weight to be about 725 lbs. You will want this weight to fall somewhere near the middle...

  • Tow Package Recommendation for a 2011 Toyota Highlander
  • We have everything that you need to set up your 2011 Toyota Highlander for towing. First, if you don't already have a trailer hitch, I recommend installing the Draw-Tite Max Frame Class III Trailer Hitch # 75726 because it has more than enough capacity for your vehicle and it is rated for use with a weight distribution system if necessary. Next, if you don't already have a tail light wiring harness with a 4-pin connector like part # 118449, then you will want to install this item as...

  • Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for 2018 Ford Expedition
  • For your 2018 Ford Expedition the suspension enhancement kit I recommend is the SumoSprings part # CSS-1168R because this kit installs easily in the coils of your rear suspension and does not require air pressure maintenance. It also will reduce the rear suspension sag in your vehicle greatly when you are towing.

  • Difference of Suspension Enhancement Springs on a 2007 Honda Odyssey
  • Choosing between jounce-style springs, coil helper springs, and air springs depends on why you need them in the first place. All three improve your ride, absorb shock, and will help prevent your 2007 Honda Odyssey from sagging. However, the jounce-style are not engaged when the vehicle is not loaded and are there for additional support when it's needed. Air springs however are always being used to help your ride. Also, the psi can be adjusted based on the amount of weight in the vehicle....

  • Will Coil SumoSprings Fit a 2012 Kia Sorento EX All Wheel Drive
  • The Coil SumoSprings # CSS-1168R are designed to fit a gap between coils in a spring of 1-3/4 inches. For your 2012 Kia Sorento they could potentially be used if the space between the coils of the springs is 1-3/4 inches. They are listed as a fit for the 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe which is very similar to the Sorento (many of the same aftermarket parts fit both vehicles). But there was a chassis change in 2012 so the SumoSprings may not work unless that gap is 1-3/4 inches.

  • Recommended Coil Sumo Spring Helper Springs for 2017 Ford Expedition 4WD
  • Coil spring helpers like the Coil SumoSprings Custom Helper Springs for Coil Spring Suspension - Rear Axle # CSS-1168R can utilize more than one per spring if desired.

  • How to Setup the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System on a 2017 Ford Expedition
  • For starters, I would first make sure that the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System you are using is properly rated for the total touge weight (TTW) of your towing setup. In order to find the TTW of your towing setup you will need to add the tongue weight (TW) of your loaded ready to tow trailer to any cargo stored behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. The best way to do this is with a tongue weight scale like part # 5780. If your TTW is between 600 lbs - 1,000 lbs then part # EQ37100ET...

  • Suspension Enhancement Recommendations for 2012 Toyota Sienna
  • The SumoSprings # CSS-1168R that you referenced will install between the coils of your springs as shown in the photo I provided. They will make the springs harder to compress, but will not provide additional ground clearance. This is a passive system, that will allow no adjustment. The folks at SumoSprings do not recommend using more than one set of springs per axle, as additional springs would make for a harsh ride. In your situation, even though the idea of having air lines does not...

  • The SumoSprings Custom Helper Springs # CSS-1168R that you referenced are the only rear-axle suspension enhancement we offer currently for your 2007 Ford Expedition. These rear coil helper springs are designed to minimize rear-end squat in the tow vehicle, but really will not have much effect on trailer sway.

  • We have two rear-axle suspension kits for the 2013 Toyota Highlander and one works with the 2- and the other with the 4-wheel-drive models.

  • Rear Suspension Enhancement for a 2006 Toyota Highlander
  • Ideally you would use weight distribution but since Toyota says you cannot (consult the vehicle owners manual to confirm) then using some sort of suspension enhancement will work to take the sag out of the back of your 2006 Toyota Highlander. The Sumo Springs you actually need are # CSS-1195R for your Highlander. These will help to take out the sagging and ease some stress on the suspension.

  • Helper Springs or Weight Distribution for a 1999 Ford Expedition that Sags with Boat Trailer Coupled
  • You have some squat there but I've seen worse! Basically, there are two reasons that a vehicle can squat in the back. One is caused by the tongue weight of the trailer and the other is when you are carrying a heavy load in the back of the vehicle. When squat is caused by a heavy load carried in the vehicle that is when you would use suspension enhancement like helper springs of some kind. But when squat is caused by the tongue weight of a trailer the best solution is to use weight distribution....

  • Difference Between Fastway e2 And Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System
  • When choosing a weight distribution system, the most important thing to know is the total tongue weight. That is the tongue weight of the trailer when it is fully loaded and ready to tow added to the weight of any cargo placed behind the rear axle. To compare the Fastway system like part # FA92-00-0800 to the Equal-I-zer part # EQ37100ET, I would go with the Equal-i-zer. They both have trunnion spring bars and can handle similar weight but the Equal-I-zer has a 4-point sway control...

  • SumoSprings Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for a 2009 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • Yes, there are SumoSprings available that are confirmed to fit your 2009 Subaru Outback Wagon. If you have the H6 engine you would want the part # CSS-1069R. If you do not have the H6 engine you would want the part # CSS-1094R. Other customers who have bought these two part numbers have left reviews saying the install was pretty easy and that removing the wheels helped. Soapy water can also be used if the spring is being stubborn.

  • Better Solution for Vehicle Suspension Sag Than Helper Springs
  • Suspension enhancement is great for vehicles that are carrying a heavy load in the cargo area of the vehicle. But if the sag is from towing a trailer a much better solution is a weight distribution system. This will take the tongue weight of the trailer and partially distribute it to the front axle of the vehicle which will give it better braking and handling characteristics that with suspension enhancement. The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of...

  • Reducing Trailer and Vehicle Sway on a 2010 Ford Expedition
  • Roadmaster does not offer an anti-sway bar for the 2010 Ford Expedition but I do not think that is necessarily the problem. The issue is most likely the sway control on the trailer or a weight distribution system that is not rated correctly for your set up. The trailer should not be able to sway at all with a dual-cam set up when properly installed and adjusted according to the installation instructions I have provided. To make sure your system is rated properly you will need to first...

  • Suspension Enhancement to Create A Stiffer Ride On 2012 Dodge Ram 1500
  • The Timbren Vehicle Suspension, part # TDR1500DQ, is not designed to give your 2012 Dodge Ram 1500 a stiffer ride when unloaded. The manufacturer has designed this system so that it has a gap when installed between the Timbren springs and the axle which allows the truck suspension to work in a normal fashion. When the truck is loaded the Timbren system engages the suspension and will provide a more rigid ride. I recommend a system like the SuperSprings Vehicle Suspension, part # CSS-1168R....

  • Solution for Rear Suspension of 2010 Honda Odyssey That Sags When Trailer Is Hitched
  • As a starting point, I'd recommend having the rear suspension of your Odyssey examined to make sure everything's in good repair. Both the # CSS-1168R Coil Sumo Springs and the Air Lift # AL60815 will affect your vehicle suspension whether the trailer is hitched or not. Both types of systems can have their drawbacks. The air springs can leak, and although the Coil Sumo Springs work as they are supposed to, I'm not a huge fan of using zip ties to hold a suspension component in place.The...
