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.
First of all etrailer.com has shown again they have the best customer service. There's a reason I keep going back for my truck/trailer needs.
The 1500# SumoSprings I ordered (SSR-610-47) for my Frontier installed very easily. The total install took about 20 min. Having an impact gun definitely helped. Getting the U-bolt nuts off without one would be a bear. I opted for the 1500# to assist with squatting when I pull my 5K# camper. I am using an e2 WDH but its still squatting a bit too much for my taste, these should help with that. The ride without a load is stiff but not harsh. There's virtually no body roll like there was before even with new shocks. I'm looking forward to my first camping trip of the year and will update after that trip which will be about 250 miles round trip.
I installed the black ones on my Tacoma a little more than a year ago. For the most part I am happy with them. They work great when pulling the trailer, keeping everything level. When driving without a load the truck rides as comfortable as it did before installing the Solo Springs as long as the temperatures are above 20 degrees. When temperatures fall below 20 degrees things get noticeably rougher however.
Product was for a 2016 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro. I purchased these in preparation to haul a 25ft travel trailer. I was concerned that the installation of the Sumo Springs would affect the unloaded ride, so immediately after install I took the truck for a test drive and purposefully looked for and hit wholes along my drive. I am very pleased to report that the unloaded ride was not affected in the least. I have not picked up my travel trailer as of yet to report on how they did keeping the truck level with the trailer connected, but will provide an update once I have trailer and some additional miles on these. So far very pleased though delivered within the two day requirement I had.
The Sumo springs work well for keeping the back end of the truck level, However, the Sumo springs have made the ride stiffer which was unexpected from their descri[tion. Overall I am pleased with my purchase.
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 .
I had these replaced on my 2016 Tundra SR5 4WD CREWMAX that I tow a 28 ft travel trailer. I had my local mechanic install, hour later, done. Test drove it on country road, WOW. It drove like a sports car. The rear end took the bumps and dips no problem. The new stop basically takes up all the clearance between the frame and the axle. The response of the new urethane stop is progressive; no load, slight interaction and the more up/down action of the truck, the more the reaction. Tundra owners know that the rear leaf spring suspension is soft, car like. I am gearing up for a cross country trip w/trailer this October. I'll update this review later. I chose etrailer over the online big box store, same price, free shipping, delivered a few days later.
I called etrailer and asked which sumo spring I should purchase. I explained my trucks set and which trailer I was going to tow. I was told get the 1500 black sumo springs. Ok I believed that the person I spoke with was knowledgeable. WRONG! My tundra now rides like shit-super stiff rear suspension. I called back, could you please exchange for the 1000 blue springs? I am told no, but maybe I could sell the black sumo’s online? what a load of shit! etrailer wont back the advice they give or the product for a un-happy customer. I am out $250 for the springs and $100 for OEM u-bolts( tundra) I am now stuck driving my Tundra with horrible rear kick and stiff bounce. Goodby etrailer, never again.
100% stock 2017 Tundra SR 4WD V8. Bought these to provide a bit more stability when towing 27' 8600 GVW tag along camper usually running around 8000lb actual weight. Weight distributing hitch w/ sway control. Wasn't horrible before but wanted suspension stiffened up some. Easy to install if you have a torque wrench and the most basic of hand tools. Did exactly what I wanted it to do.
Worked well to take the front end bounce out while towing. Did very little to help with the rear squat on my 2010 Tundra towing 8k pounds. In the process of removing and installing airbags.
This was the answer to my rear sag when the trailer was attached. My wife never said a thing about the ride on our trip and I did not notice any difference. It probably took me 45 minutes to bolt the SumoSprings on the truck not bad at all. Good product.
No pblm installing them on my '03 tundra. Hv used my truck for hvy loads constantly (alfalfa, firewood, lumber) and they are far superior than the air shocks i had previously. Would buy again.
Great product, easy to install. I use them as back up for my air springs. Work great without air springs too. Thanks.
This product fit my 2010 Toyota Tacoma perfectly. The Sumo Springs were easy to install and I expect them to help support any heavy loads I carry by taking some of the load off of the leaf springs. They will also help keep my truck level regardless of the load I am carrying without making the ride any harsher.
These Sumo springs are the real deal! Installed them on my Nissan Frontier that I tow a trailer with and instead of the rear dropping 2 1/2 inches it now only drops less than an inch. Originally tried to buy another big brand name but it said it wasn't compatible with my truck. These Summo springs are second to none. Took about 45 minutes to install. Very happy. Highly reccomend.
I installed the helper springs and they have worked greatly, hauling my 4 wheeler around in the Nissan - thanks.
This was the easiest thing to install i was done in ten minutes and that was only because i had the wrong size socket when i went under the truck and had get go get the other size. they clear very well. I will have my trailer on my truck soon and i know that this will work very well. I have tried many other things in the past i wish i had found this much sooner. this is on a 2016 toyota tundra and i pull a car trailer from time to time,
the trailer is a tilt trailer and is heavy duty so it has some tongue weight, This will solve the problem i have with the truck sagging in the rear
Pain getting old u bolts off after being on there for ten years but sumo springs went in easy with new u bolts purchased separately. Looks like the sumo springs will work well.
Easy to install and worked perfectly. The difference in truck bed sag was amazing after installing and hooking up the trailer. Handling and headlight up-tilt were corrected by installing this produce.
install was simple and they seem to do as expected would definitely recommend
Great product. I have Sumo Springs on the front and rear on both of my trucks. Does wonders for daily driving and handeling.
These work perfect on my 2017 Tacoma, almost no sag when pulling my cargo trailer conversion. Ride is a little stiffer for everyday use.
I have used these several times with great results, great product, great service
Easy to install simple bolt-on upgrade for better heavy load management for my 2008 Nissan Titan. After mounting these on my truck I noticed that my shocks were in need of replacement (i.e. 120,000 miles on the original shocks). The extra support of the Sumos made me more aware of the old age of my shocks.
I installed Sumo Springs on the front and rear of my 2019 sprinter van conversion for noticeable improvement of ride quality. Less sway and more control.
Got the SumoSprings 3 days after placing the order. Installed them on my
2009 Toyota Tundra in about 45 minutes, saved about 2.5" to 2.75" of sag
with my trailer hooked up. Had 3/4" space between frame and spring
when operating without trailer.

etrailer was very helpful with making sure I ordered the right product. As for the product... I love the addition to my 20201 Toyota Tundra TRD PRO. It made towing my 2021 Lance 2285 Travel Trailer a dream. The truck and trailer sit perfectly level now and the truck handles great. Easy install only took a couple of hours. In my pic... the stabilizer jacks are down because I was doing a quick overnighter and didn't want to unhitch. But the stabilizers aren't lifting the camper or truck.. just kissing the ground to keep the camper from rocking when inside. Its the only pic I had handy.
Installed easily, and used them to pull a heavy 24’ trailer across the country with a half ton pickup. The only thing I’d like to see is a manual leveling system with gauges and a compressor on board. I use a hand pump specifically for motorcycle air suspension to make the fine adjustments required to set the pressure. Works well.
They did their job perfectly.
It was a nice simple install and gives you the ability to adjust the firmness to the rear of your truck when towing. They take some of the cargo weight away from your rear springs.
It was an easy install and everything fit OK. I removed the spare tire to make it easy. I had to slightly bend the brake hose bracket on both sides and another bracket just slightly to clear the rear spring clamp at the bottom of the spring. I carry my 1,400 pound Honda Pioneer 700 and pull my travel trailer with a 400 pound hitch weight. I have your weight distribution hitch for some of the hitch weight.
Outstanding product!!! Well made and easy to install on my 2010 Tundra TRD. Just basic tools needed so anyone can do it!! Take your time and it is a fun 2 hour project. Made towing my trailer so much nicer. Level ride with comfort and good maneuverability. Think I am going to add these to my other GMC work truck as well.
These work great. No problems after one year. Made a big difference with 1020 lbs. tongue weight. I don't see any difference in ride when unloaded (10 psi on helpers), Really nice to have the boat tow level.
Install on 2010 Toyota Tundra CrewMax. Took about an hour with basic hand tools. Instructions are straight forward. Now truck doesn’t sag when towing.
Installed on my 2021 Toyota Tundra, These Firestone Ride Rite are phenomenal. I’m very pleased with the results AAAA++++
Installation was pretty straight forward. Completed in about 2.5 hours taking my time, in my drive with basic tools. Havent had a chance to test them out.

Excellent product, and a great solution to our “squat” issues while towing our RV. Two suggestions to buyers. 1) Wash your undercarriage before installation! I looked like Pig Pen before I was done and it took a couple of hours to get the grit out of my teeth! 2) Test fit both upper plates to your frame before pre-assembly of the units. The plates could go on in any of 4 different orientations (up or down, left or right) and it’s much easier to figure this out beforehand than when you’re trying to wiggle the assembly into place and worrying about the alignment stud.
Easy to install with all the right parts. I do wish they would ship it with a hose tee to tie the lines together. Makes airing them up much easier.
I installed this kit on my Toyota Tundra and it has worked great. Awesome product.
Does every thing that it should do love it. Thanks for a great product
Since I installed this Firestone Ride-rite Helper Springs (airbags), I have had a better ride pulling the Air Stream trailer across this country. This product even works really well without a trailer too. I'd recommend it to any truck owner.
Straight forward and easy to install even for a girl!! HA! So far so good but haven’t test-driven the Tundra yet hope to do that today.
Very straight forward. Had no problems with install!
Installation was easy. I use the Firestone suspension when I tow my fifth wheel. I can raise the truck back up to level with a load on the hitch, and ride is much improved.
Makes all the difference in my 2019 tundra when hauling anything heavy. I haul a 30ft camper maxing my weight out and with these bags my truck doesn’t even squat an inch.
They work great and easy to install. 2015 Toyota Tundra 5.7 pulling an 8600 lb travel trailer.
These are great for my 2020 Tundra. Had a saggy bum while towing my 30’ travel trailer. Fixed it right up. One thing I’m trying to find out is if I can put the truck on a two-post lift and have the suspension hang the whole way down without stretching the airbags too much. Also, great service!! Needed the parts for a long haul camping trip, they were out of stock. ETrailer got them in and shipped right away!
Install was straightforward with some help from Youtube. I haven’t loaded it with the trailer yet, but have pressurized to 70psi with no issue. So far extremely happy with this product.
They're very nice, easy to install. I did it on a 2015 toyota tundra in about an hour from start to finish. I removed the rear tires to cut the joist off to make it easier for me. Other than that extra step I made for myself their videos for the install is spot on. I recommend them to anyone who is hauling anything of weight to save wear and tear on the suspension,breaks and tires of their vehicle.
This kit was super easy to install. Matter of fact I did the install in the driveway of my in-laws with a basic tool kit as I found I needed these to provide a more pleasant towing experience when I was moving cross country. The hardware was very nice and the tubing and fittings were very easy push connect type. Instructions are well laid out and straight forward. These also are very beneficial for flexible needs. When I don't have any large load in the bed or when not towing, I keep them at about 7lbs and you basically have factory ride but with less roll in turns. When you are loaded up, just add air to level out and ride comfortably (any truck loaded to full capacity will squat and the steering and driveability is fairly compromised at that stance.)
instructions were great and made the job easy. They also work perfectly at keeping the truck level while hauling our travel trailer.
The parts I ordered got to me very quickly with every single thing I would need to complete the installation. It took me much longer to do the install but that may be because I’m 80. Once done the air bags worked great & noticeably improved our trucks handling.
