Expert Answers about Supersprings

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Should Front or Rear SumoSprings be Added to 2015 Thor Motor Coach First
  • When improving the ride for your 2015 Thor Motor Coach 24C on a Ford E-350 chassis the best thing to do would be to install all of them. The SumoSprings replace factory bump stops and the sway bar replaces your factory sway bar. If you had to choose just one I recommend installing the rear SumoSprings # SSR-130-54 as they will help with both the sway and the jounce as opposed to just sway with the sway bar. Next I would install the front SumoSprings # SSF-106-47 as it will help with...

  • SumoSprings Helper Springs Fit for 1999 Fleetwood Bounder Motor Home on F-53 Chassis
  • We have SumoSprings rear axle helper springs that will work well on your 1999 Bounder Motor Home on F-53 Chassis, but the # SSR-186-54 springs you referenced will not fit your motor home, these springs fit F-53 chassis starting in 2005. For your 1999 F-53 chassis, there are 2 different SumoSprings help spring options, and the correct kit for your motor home will depend on the vehicle's Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR). If your motor home's GVWR is between 16,000 pounds and 18,000 pounds,...

  • 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.

  • Best Way to Soften the Ride on a 2018 Fleetwood Bounder 36D
  • The best option you have to improve and soften the ride on your 2018 Fleetwood Bounder 36D would be to use the SumoSprings Maxim Custom Helper Springs part # SSR-187-54-1. These springs install between the frame and leaf spring pack. They will work to absorb shock, minimize sway, and improve the wear life of your existing suspension components. The springs are made in the U.S.A. and come with a 2-year warranty. If you would like to get a better idea of how they work you can take a look...

  • Best Heavy Duty SumoSprings for a 2016 Fleetwood Bounder 35K
  • The SumoSprings Rebel Custom Helper Springs # SSF-173-40-2 will fit the F-53 chassis on your 2016 Fleetwood Bounder 35K but is rated for motorhomes with a GVWR from 24,000 lbs - 26,000 lbs. Since your 35K has a GVWR of 22,000 lbs I recommend going with the SumoSprings Rebel Custom Helper Springs # SSF-170-40-2 instead which is for motorhomes with a GVWR of 16,000 lbs - 22,000 lbs. We are continually trying to update our fit guide to better serve our customers. The reason that we...

  • Recommended Sumo Springs for 2018 Ford F53 Chassis 24,000 lbs
  • The SumoSprings Rebel Custom Helper Springs - 2 Piece - Front Axle # SSF-173-40-2 will support the load and compress together on your motorhome all the time when there is weight. The split design is a benefit for the individual springs when the suspension travel is greater than what a single non-split design could handle. In other words, when one wheel travels lower on a turn, the spring will not take weight off the wheel so it has more weight in contact with the road for better traction....

  • 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...

  • How to Prevent Trailer Axle from Hitting the Frame
  • Installing a 4,000 lb capacity leaf spring on a trailer with a 3,500 lb capacity axle will make the suspension stiffer which could then in turn minimize the risk of the axle contacting the frame. However, this is not what I recommend to fix your problem. Instead, I recommend using the SumoSprings Trailer Helper Springs part # TSS-105-47 which will provide you with a rubber bumper between the suspension and frame as you can see in the attached photo. They will not produce a continuous rough...

  • 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...

  • Is SumoSprings Trailer Helper Springs # TSS-105-47 Compatible with Tandem Shock Axles on Trailer
  • Thanks for attaching pictures of your setup. Based on that I can tell your trailer is compatible with the SumoSprings Trailer Helper Springs # TSS-105-47 that you referenced. I attached a picture that shows what this kit looks like installed which shows that it would fit just fine with your current shocks. Since you have a tandem axle kit you'd need two sets of these. This is the properly rated kit too so it's the correct kit you'd need.

  • Recommended SumoSprings Front and Rear for 2017 Fleetwood LXE 31B
  • So your 2017 Fleetwood LXE 31B is built on a Ford F-53 chassis and has a GVWR of 18k so the correct SumoSprings for the front and rear are # SSF-170-40-2 for the front and # SSR-187-40-1 for the rear.

  • Will SuperSprings Custom Helper Springs Help Rear Sag on 2012 Toyota Highlander with Tent Trailer
  • The SuperSprings Coil SumoSprings Custom Helper Springs # CSS-1145R referenced in your question is confirmed to fit your 4WD 2012 Toyota Highlander. These springs will simply insert between the individual coils of each coil spring to enhance the suspension's ability to support loads like your trailer. This will definitely do a nice job of preventing the rear sag you are experiencing when hooking up your tent trailer. I have attached a short video demonstration on this product, along...

  • 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....

  • Recommended Vehicle Suspension For Front And Rear Of Fleetwood Bounder RV
  • For your 2014 Fleetwood Bounder The SumoSprings Rebel Custom Helper Springs # SSF-170-40-2 are recommended for the front. Your Fleetwood Bounder RV has a GVWR of 22,000lbs. These springs are made for models ranging from 16,000 to 22,000 lbs. These springs will mount both on top and bottom but are not connected. They will absorb the road shock, but will also allow full axle movement so you will have the best steering ability and traction. For the rear, I recommend the SumoSprings Maxim...

  • Sumo Springs for 2011 Newmar Canyon Star on Ford F-53 Chassis
  • The 2011 Newmar Canyon Star was built on a Ford F-53 chassis, so the SumoSprings that fit will be ones that fit that chassis. The correct front axle SumoSprings are # SSF-173-40-2 while the correct rear axle SumoSprings are # SSR-187-54-1. I've added links to video reviews of both SumoSprings for you to take a look at.

  • 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.

  • The 1,000 pound capacity SumoSprings Solo Custom Helper Springs # SSR-117-40 for 4 Wheel Drive and # SSR-116-40 for 2 Wheel Drive referenced in your question will offer a smoother empty ride in your 2016 Ford F-150 than a higher rated alternative spring. It is important though to keep in mind that any weight coming from behind the rear axle of your F-150 and from the trailer hitch itself should also be considered when choosing a suspension enhancement system, as this will be included to...

  • Recommended Front-Axle Suspension Jounce Spring Kit for 2015 Ford F-53 2WD
  • SumoSprings discontinued the kit SSF-180-40-1 for the 2015 Ford F-53 application and replaced it with the 2-piece jounce spring kits # SSF-170-40-2 for vehicles with GVWR of 16K to 22K and # SSF-173-40-2 for GVWR of 24K to 26K. Usually a new spring design relates to changes made by the RV makers who may be installing other OEM equipment.

  • 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. Super Springs will allow you to also cut them to size if you find 2 are too long for your springs to function as desired. The material is microcellular polyurethane foam so it uses pockets of air for cushioning and support. This is a great option for your coil springs on your 2017 Ford Expedition and are a confirmed fit.

  • Helper Springs, Steering Stabilizer, and Anti-Sway Bars for RV Built on 2013 Ford F-350 V10 Chassis
  • To start I actually recommend Timbren rear helper springs # TFER35092B because they were specifically designed for RVs built on the 2013 Ford E-350 van chassis, have a lifetime warranty, and cost less than the SumoSpring options. They are rated at 3,600 pounds. For a steering stabilizer use the Roadmaster Reflex steering stabilizer # RM-RBK24-RSSC. For a front anti-sway bar you can use # RM-1139-176 which will replace the factory sway bar. And for the rear you can use # RM-1139-117....

  • Height of Sumo Spring # SSR-207-47 For 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500HD
  • The # SSR-207-47 SumoSpring is 5 inches tall. Usually, the underside of the spring would sit about 1-2 inches above the axle. For crew cab models, the extra weight of the cab would cause the rear to settle a bit more, with the bottom of the spring sitting just above or right on the axle.

  • When Will A C-Clamp Be Needed to Install SuperSprings Suspension Stabilizer SSA28
  • There really is no way to know if you will need a C-clamp to install the SuperSprings custom Suspension Stabilizer and Sway Control Kit # SSA28 on your 2015 Ford F-150. A C-clamp is listed in the instructions as a needed tool for installation. The clamp comes into play when installing the rear shackle of the SuperSpring. In some situations the clamp is needed to hold the rear shackle down while the bottom bolt is installed. The clamp keeps the shackle in place so it can be installed...

  • Recommended SumoSprings for a 2015 Ford F-150 with 800 Lb Load
  • The SumoSprings Solo Custom Helper Springs part # SSR-116-47 is what I recommend for your 2015 Ford F-150. The SumoSprings Solo Custom Helper Springs part # SSR-116-40 would also work for you but you will be near the capacity of 1,000 lbs with your 800 lb setup which is why I recommend the set rated for 1,500 lbs. This will ensure that the springs offer you with the correct amount of support and comfort. I have attached a review video for you as well.

  • Is Weight Distribution Needed With Suspension Enhancement on 2018 Toyota Tacoma?
  • Those are very good questions and let's start with the capacities of both systems. The SumoSprings Solo Custom Helper Springs # SSR-612-40 has a 500 lb capacity and SumoSprings # SSR-612-47 has a 1,000 lb capacity, which means that is the highest amount of weight that the springs will actively still help your 2018 Toyota Tacoma's suspension. Anything over that and you won't see the benefits of the system. If 3,500 lbs is the max weight of your enclosed trailer when it is loaded then...

These 3,000 pound capacity springs will support a heavy load to level your ride and minimize sway.

  • If you wanted to install SumoSprings on your 2017 Fleetwood Bounder built on a Ford F-53 that are designed for the higher GVWR chassis you could but you should note that it would probably give you a harsher ride quality than you'd want. For GVWR between 20k and 26k you'd want the part # SSR-187-54-1. The kit for 20-22k like what you have would be the part # SSR-180-54-1 which would give you the support you want without sacrificing ride quality. I can see how it would be tempting to...
