Expert Answers about Supersprings

  • Towing Capacity of a 2013 Toyota Tacoma 4.0 Double Cab 4x4 with Factory Tow Package
  • I can help you out, no problem. What you are going to want to look at is the towing capacities of the truck. You need to know the gross combined weight rating. This is the most the vehicle, including cargo and occupants, plus the trailer can weigh. This information is usually in the owners manual or on a sticker in the door jamb. Looking at an online copy of the owners manual the 4 liter V6 model of the 2013 Toyota Tacoma with 4-wheel drive could have one of several capacities depending...

  • Experiencing Bounce When Towing 24 FT Pull Behind Trailer w/ 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
  • There are a couple things that come to mind that may help with the bounce that you are experiencing when towing the 24 ft pull behind trailer with your 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. I would start by checking to make sure that your trailer isn't overloaded. Next, make sure that the tongue weight is between 10 and 15 percent of the overall trailer weight. Not enough weight in the tongue can cause bounce in the truck/trailer connection and too much weight could cause bounce at the back of...

  • Rear Sumo Spring Recommendation for 2016 Thor ACE 29.3 Motorhome
  • Since your 2016 Thor ACE 29.3 loaded weighs 24,000 lbs the part # SSR-187-54-1 is the best choice. It's for vehicles with a GVWR between 20,000 and 26,000 lbs so your weight would be perfect. I attached an install video for this kit for you to check out as well.

  • Are Air Springs or Helper Springs Better For Sag When Towing a 5th Wheel With a 2008 Ford F-250
  • The decision between an air ride system or helper springs should be made based on how you will be using your 2008 Ford F-250 Super Duty. Air bags are a good option if you tow your fifth wheel trailer occasionally and do a lot of hauling with varying load weights. I would recommend using the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs, # F2550, as these air bags will work with a fifth hitch installed in your truck bed. Air springs should be manually adjusted for each load using an air compressor....

  • Recommended SumoSprings Suspension Enhancement for Thor Miramar on a 2016 F53 Chassis & 22K GVWR
  • The best and correct SumoSprings for your new Thor Miramar 34.3 on a 2016 Ford F-53 Chassis weighing in at 22K GVWR are the # SSR-187-54-1 for the rear axle and # SSF-180-40-1 for the front axle. I have linked them both to this page for your convenience.

  • Recommended SumoSprings for a 2016 Thor A.C.E 29.3 RV
  • Since your 2016 Thor A.C.E 29.3 RV utilizes a Ford F-53 chassis, you can use suspension enhancements designed for this chassis. I recommend using the following products depending on the weight of your RV. Front: SumoSprings Rebel Custom Helper Springs part # SSF-170-40-2 (16,000 and 22,000 lbs) SumoSprings Rebel Custom Helper Springs part # SSF-173-40-2 (24,000 and 26,000 lbs) Rear: SumoSprings Maxim Custom Helper Springs part # SSR-184-40-1 (16,000 and 18,000 lbs) SumoSprings...

  • Do the SumoSprings for a Tiffin Allegro Help with Crosswinds and Passing Trucks
  • The SumoSprings Custom Helper Springs Kit # SSF-182-54 that you referenced has been confirmed to fit Ford F-53 chassis from 1990 - 2016 and they do an excellent job with reducing body roll. These will help greatly with sidewinds and wind from passing trucks. If you want help with crosswinds these would be an excellent option that we would recommend for you.

  • Recommended Rear Helper Springs for a 2016 Ford F-150 4x4
  • Based on the weight of the trailers and the type of terrain you will be driving on I do recommend the SuperSprings helper springs # SSR-117-47 for your 2016 Ford F-150 4x4. These springs are designed for models with stock height (not lifted) and for models with a gross vehicle weight rating of 7,500 pounds. The ride quality, especially when loaded and/or going over bumps on rough terrain, will be much improved using these helper springs.

  • Color Choices of # SSR-610-40 Sumo Springs for 2011 Toyota Tundra
  • The # SSR-610-40 Sumo Springs by Super Springs are only available in blue, as shown on our product page. They would replace the factory bump stop, located directly atop the leaf spring over the axle, so they're not going to be visible from the side. Timbren offers a similar product in black, part # TTORTUN4.

  • What Suspension Kit to Correct Sagging Rear End on 2002 Toyota Tacoma During Occasional Towing
  • As you noted there are several different types of rear axle suspension enhancement products for your 2002 Toyota Tacoma: air-springs, rubber bump-stop springs and helper leaf springs such as the Super Springs # SSA18. Air-spring kits are more complex to install and require regular checks to maintain their required minimum pressure, but offer adjust-ability to suit changing tow and cargo loads. Rubber springs are not adjustable but do offer progressive resistance as the load increases,...

  • Rear Helper Springs for a 2016 Toyota Tundra with B&W Gooseneck Hitch Installed
  • I do have a solution for you but because of the way that the B&W gooseneck hitch brackets install on the frame rails of the 2016 Toyota Tundra none of the air bag helper springs will fit. What I recommend is to use SuperSprings # SSA4 because they will not interfere with the gooseneck hitch at all. Or, if you what a little more capacity and more adjustability you can use the Roadmaster active suspension kit # RAS4618AT. I have linked a video of this system for you.

  • How to Install SumoSprings Custom Rear Helper Springs # CSS-1168R on a 2013 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad Cab
  • SumoSprings Custom Rear Axle Helper Springs # CSS-1168R are a good choice for your application since they will provide progressive resistance as the load on them increases, and unlike complex air bag systems these Sumo helper springs require zero maintenance. I have attached the installation guide for your review. These include clear step-by-step instructions and excellent color photographs. You will need a floor jack, 2 jack stands and 4 wheel blocks for safe installation. Soapy...

  • What SumoSpring Heper Springs Fit a 2016 Thor Miramar 34.5
  • Your 2016 Thor Miramar is built on the Ford F-53 chassis so the SumoSprings Maxim Custom Helper Springs # SSR-187-54-1 that you referenced are a confirmed fit that will work well. I attached an install video for more info for you to check out as well.

  • Coil SumoSprings Custom Helper Springs for Coil Spring Suspension - Rear Axle - 2010 Subaru Outback
  • The SuperSprings Coil SumoSprings would be an excellent addition to your 2010 Subaru Outback Wagon to help reduce sag when you are carrying your motorcycle. Once the SumoSprings are installed, they will not raise the rear of your Outback. They are simply there to keep the rear coil springs from compressing as much when there is a load. To answer your second question, the difference between the SumoSprings, part # CSS-1069R and part # CSS-1094R, are their size. The number in the part...

  • Rear Helper Springs for a 2016 Ford Transit T250 Cutaway with KUV Utility Body
  • The chassis on your 2016 Ford Transit T250 cutaway is the same as the cargo van models so you can use SuperSprings # SSA11. But what I recommend that will work just as well and that costs less is the SumoSprings # SSR-121-54. They will help keep the van level, absorb road shock, and reduce sway or body roll.

  • Is There an Advantage to Installing 3000 lb SuperSprings over 2000 lb SuperSprings on a 2012 F-150
  • As long as the gross vehicle weight (GVW) of your 2012 Ford F-150 does not exceed 7,500 lbs, then you will be fine installing the 2,000 lb SuperSprings, # SSA5MTKT. The important thing to consider when you are choosing between the 2,000 lb SuperSprings or the 3,000 lb SuperSprings, # SSA28, is the GVW of your truck when it is fully loaded and hooked to your trailer. Your GVW will include the curb weight of the truck plus the weight of any passengers, cargo and the pin weight of your trailer....

  • What Would Cause Trailer Sway That Starts at 55 Miles Per Hour
  • The kind of sway/bouncing that you described right at 55 miles per hour is due to improper trailer loading nearly every single time. You want to have your tongue weight equal to 10-15 percent of the total trailer weight otherwise you will get sway. What you need to do is move the weight of as much cargo as you can forward in your trailer so that you can get your tongue weight higher. Doing so will get rid of the sway. Since you mentioned you have a weight distribution system and are...

  • Will the SumoSprings Custom Helper Springs Fit on a 2003 GMC Yukon XL With Coil Springs
  • I spoke with my contact at Super Springs and the SumoSprings Custom Helper Springs, # SSR-204-40, will fit on your 2003 GMC Yukon XL with coil springs as long as it is a 1500 model. These springs are designed to replace your factory bump stops. Once you remove your factory bump stops these springs will slide into the bump stop mounting location. The installation instructions are included in the box. I have attached a photo showing how the SumoSprings will look once installed.

  • Fit of SuperSprings SSR-610-47 Solo Helper Springs on 2014 Toyota Tundra w/ 1 Inch Lift
  • According to my SuperSprings representative, the 1 inch increase in ride height provided by the block won't do much to change the effectiveness of the # SSR-610-47 Solo Custom Helper Springs. As you can see in the photo I've provided, The spring sits about an inch below the frame member on a Tundra with a stock ride height. Your 1 inch lift will mean that the truck's suspension will need to compress a bit more before the Solo Springs come into effect.

  • Recommended Suspension Enhancement System for Occasional Towing with 2010 Xterra 4x4 on Rough Roads
  • I recommend the SumoSprings # SSR-210-40 for your 2010 Xterra 4x4 since you'll be towing and hitting rough roads occasionally. These are specifically designed to provide extra support to your existing springs while maintaining a smooth ride when driving down the highway without additional weight. The Timbren Suspension Enhancement System # TJRC01 is better suited for vehicles that tow heavy loads on a regular basis and they may be a little stiff on rough roads. Please check out the...

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for 2016 Ford F-150 Towing 7,500 lb Travel Trailer
  • When towing a bumper pull trailer the best way to fight suspension sag is actually with a weight distribution system and not helper springs. Not only does a WD system reduce the sag on the vehicle but in doing so it distributes some of the tongue weight up to the front axle of the tow vehicle which improves braking and handling. Especially in emergency situations. The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of the setup when it...

  • Recommended SumoSprings For Rear Axle Of A 2017 Toyota Tacoma SR5 4x4
  • The SumoSprings Solo Custom Helper Springs - Rear Axle, # SSR-610-40, are great jounce springs with a capacity of 1000 lbs at 50% compression. The # SSR-610-47 that you are referring to is a heavier-duty application with a 1500 lb capacity at 50% compression, and I recommend these if you will be doing a lot of hauling since they have a much stronger capacity, but for occasional hauling the 1000 lbs springs are more ideal and won't give as bumpy a ride when unloaded. These springs are...

  • Difference Between SumoSprings Solo Custom Helper Springs For 2016 Ford F-150 4-Wheel Drive Truck
  • The difference between the SumoSprings Solo Custom Helper Springs for your 2016 F-150 depends on the model and transmission you have. If you have a 2-wheel drive truck, or 2-wheel drive Raptor, part # SSR-116-40 has a capacity of 1,000-lbs at 50 percent compression. Part # SSR-116-47 has a capacity of 1,500-lbs at 50 percent compression. For 4-wheel drive trucks, and the SVT Raptor 4-wheel drive model, part # SSR-117-40 has a capacity of 1,000-lbs at 50 percent compression, and part...

  • Will SumoSpring SSR-610-47 Have a Gap Between Vehicle Frame When Unloaded
  • They are 6 inches tall. You do want a bit of distance between the SumoSpring and where it would contact the vehicle. This allows the ride quality to not be affected when the vehicle is unloaded. You don't want the SumoSpring # SSR-610-47 making contact all the time as that will give you a very bumpy ride quality.

  • What is the Weight Capacity of the SuperSprings part # SSR-207-47
  • When at 50 percent compression the Super Springs part # SSR-207-47 can provide 2,500 lbs of additional capacity. This will give you additional suspension support and will also allow for a smoother ride quality unloaded than the Timbren. You should note that these kits do not allow you to add their capacity to your truck capacity to get a new, higher capacity. These just provide additional support to help you carry your current capacity safer.

  • Are the Light Duty and Heavy Duty SumoSprings the Same Height for a 2015 Toyota Tundra
  • Yes, I would say that is a fair assessment of SumoSprings # SSR-610-47. the capacity is higher as well at 1,500 pounds. And of course it also fits a 2015 Toyota Tundra. Both it and # SSR-610-40 even share the same instructions.

  • SumoSpring Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for a 2014 Ford F-53
  • For your 2014 Ford F-53 Tiffin Allegro 36la you would want the SumoSprings kit part # SSR-180-54-1 for the rear axle and then part # SSF-184-40-1 for the front axle. These are the only SumoSpring options for your vehicle. These will help reduce sway, prevent sagging, and support your existing springs.

  • Rear Helper Springs for a 2017 GMC Sierra 3500 Dually 4-Wheel Drive
  • I do have a solution for you but I checked with SuperSprings and none of the Sumo Springs are listed as a fit for the 2017 GMC Sierra 3500 dually. But for a similar part that will fit I recommend Timbren springs # TGMRCK25D. These are also jounce style springs that get progressively stiffer as more weight is applied to them, no maintenance is required, limited lifetime warranty, and they work independently side to side. I have linked a video showing an example installation for you.

  • Jounce Style Suspension Enhancement Fit for 2016 Toyota Tundra
  • I have a solution for you, but the Timbren Kit part # TTORTUN4 that you referenced has not been carried over as a fit for the 2016 Toyota Tundra (as of August 2016), but the SuperSprings kit part # SSR-610-47 is a very similar jounce style helper spring that has been confirmed as a fit and would work well for you.
