Front Suspension Support

SumoSprings helper springs are great for RVs or motor homes that have slide-outs. Slide-out rooms and other heavy front loads can cause front-end sag as your factory suspension compresses under the weight of the load. This means that the front axle is trying to support not only the extra load but also the motor home's weight. And because there is less weight on your rear axle, your rear 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.


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. The pieces come together to provide support when you are carrying a heavy front 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 front 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 rear 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.

The Sumo Springs made a big difference in the handling of my 38 ft class A. I had already put Sumo Springs on the rear along with an additional rear anti-sway bar, replaced the front ant-sway bar and added a steering stabilizer. Each item made improvements but the front Sumo Springs had the most impact. So much easier to drive. Installation was very easy and the online videos were helpful. I would highly recommend these. 672241

Amazing! Installed Sumo springs on front of a new 2018 Thor 29.4. F53 frame. BEFORE was very unhappy with drive, could feel every imperfection on the road and steering was very unpredictable! AFTER: Dramatically eliminated the rough ride & steering issues . . . don't hesitate to buy these shocks you will be VERY HAPPY! My experience was so good I purchased the next week rear Sumo springs and the steering stabilize shock (much more improvements, but start with the front springs). 561311

When you look at the bumpstop and all the travel it can go, it makes sense to fill that space with a constant contact chusion, such as the Sumo Spring. I have a 2011 F53 chassis supporting a 32 Class A motothome. 16,000 GVW and no slide. I only installed the fronts to see how they worked. I did it myself and it took about 2 1/2 hours. If I can do it anyone that can work a wrench and understands basic mechanics can do it. I'm 60 and it's a tight space under there and takes some effort, but the jobs not hard, just doing it is hard and uncomfortable. My motorhome would ride very rough on the same roads my car ran smooth. The Sumo Springs were an improvement. They did not solve the rough ride on real poor highway, but on normal rough roads, they were an improvement that will benefit the ride on more roads than not. I now plan to do the rears when I get time. 500303

The SumoSprings item #SSF-170-40-2, for my 2017 Georgetown GT3, with the F53 Ford chassis was very easy to order from etrailer.com and was shipped in a very timely manner. They came with easy to follow installation instruction. Be advised that you will need a 1/2" socket with a 3" extension to insert into the factory bump stop to hold bolt while removing the nut on the drivers side. This is not mentioned in the instructions. You will also need the same socket and extension to remove the bolt on the passenger side. One other note, the nut on the drivers side is a 15mm. Other than the afore mentioned 1/2" socket and the 15mm the only other tool you'll need is a 9/16". About a hour and a half to two hour job. I took the motorhome for a test drive and there is a very noticeably improvement in the ride. Very satisfied with my purchase. Thanks, sumosprings for a great product and etrailer for a great price. 566821

The installation instructions for both the anti sway bar upgrade and the Sumo helper springs lacked torque values for their fasteners. Both suspension components fit correctly and have improved how our class A motorhome handles. Great service from etrailer. 556109

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. 649992

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. 868931

The SumoSprings were delivered two days early (great) and I started my install. I guess I'm getting older than I thought, it took me a day and a half to actually see the note at the bottom of the Diagram which show the orientation and the direction of the front of the vehicle. After I was clear on the proper install and working over my head and upside down everything actually fit very nice. The Test Drive was very good and the normal bumps that would rattle the contents of the kitchen cabinets was greatly smoothed out. The MH drove straighter and required less back and forth movement of the steering wheel. A big step of improvement. 861991

I unpacked everything and it was in good shape. All parts were intact and individually protected with paper. The directions were easily understood and very descriptive with all parts lettered with pictures and corresponded to a part and item #. One portion of the front diagram showing the leaf spring attached to a 90 degree I beam should state that is the axle. At the top of the diagram showing the frame rail, it would help if indicated somewhere we were looking at the outside of the frame rail. Those two things would help orient the viewer to what is being looked at. Also, the note at the bottom that says "Driver Side Front" with an arrow, should be in larger print and bold text. The actual pictures on the back side with the instructions should also say (at least in the first one) "outside of frame rail". To sum things up it took me 3hrs to install the driver's side. Mainly because I broke loose the welded nut on the frame that holds the bump stop and I had a heck of a time getting a socket that fit on it so I could get that darn bump stop off. Having said that, it only took me 45 to 50 minutes to install the passenger side once I knew what I was doing and had all of the tools handy. As a final note, it would be helpful to include a tool list such as 3/8" drive socket wrench with 4" or 6" extension. 13mm and 15mm deep sockets to remove Ford bump stops. Standard 9/16" ratchet wrench and or extra open end/box end 9/16" and a deep 9/16" socket. All of which only need to be 3/8" drive. I look forward to my next trip with the SumoSprings installed. 837245

    The jounce springs I recommend for your two wheel drive 2019 Ford F-53 chassis are from SumoSprings, the SumoSprings Rebel for the front axle and SumoSprings Maxim for the rear axle.

For your Ford F-53 chassis with an 18,000 lb GVWR you want part # SSF-170-40-2 for the front axle and part # SSR-184-40-1 for the rear axle.
