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...

  • Suspension Enhancement Options for Winnebago View Based on 2015 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 3500
  • We do have suspension enhancement products for the 2015 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 3500 on which your Winnebago View is built. These are displayed on the linked pages and include jounce-style bumper springs and a leaf spring kit # SSA11MTKT from Super Springs that works with the 2WD model. You do not mention the specific ride quality issue you're trying to fix but typically Class C RVs suffer from sway more than anything else. Rubber jounce springs stiffen the rear end, not exactly what...

  • Recommended Suspension Enhancement for 2018 Ford F-150 Raptor Towing 8,000 Pound Trailer
  • For your 2018 Ford F-150 Raptor, I recommend going with the SumoSprings Solo Custom Helper Springs # SSR-117-47. These jounce-style springs feature progressive load control that will provide you with a much smoother ride when compared to the Timbren springs, especially when empty or hauling a lighter load. They have a 1,500 pound weight capacity so they will do a nice job of reducing the rear sag you are experiencing when hooking up the trailer. It will be a simple, no-drill installation....

  • 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.

  • SuperSprings Rear Helper Springs on 2016 Mercedes Sprinter 2500 are Not Engaging
  • Having that slight gap between the new SuperSprings # SSR-329-47 and the platform they make contact with is common not just with this brand but with others as well. It allows your suspension to compress some so as not to have too much of an effect on the unloaded ride quality. Since the springs are not engaging at the rear of your 2016 Mercedes Sprinter 2500 that means that the factory suspension is not compressed enough. And that means that the amount of weight you have in the van...

  • Will SuperSprings Suspension Stabilizer Work On 2008 Dodge Sprinter That Has Timbrens
  • The SuperSprings Suspension Stabilizer # SSA11MTKT is designed to work with your OEM leaf springs on your 2008 Sprinter. As long as the installation of the # SSA11MTKT does not interfere with the sway bar or the Timbrens, you can use this system.

  • 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 Select Weight Distribution/Sway Control System for 36-Foot 9000-lb Travel Trailer
  • Friction bar anti-sway systems work better on smaller and lighter trailers although doubling up with two units can work satisfactorily with some longer trailers. Still, the performance of an integrated weight distribution/sway control (WD/SC) system will beat simple friction units any day of the week. I suggest you first install a properly-rated WD/SC system, before making mods to your truck's suspension, since you may find that you do not need the Superspring kit at all. The key to...

  • 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....

  • SumoSprings Recommendation for 2018 Thor Vegas 27.7 Built on E-450 Chassis
  • Yes, we do have confirmed SumoSpring fits for your 2018 Thor Vegas 27.7. For your 2018 Thor Vegas built on a Ford E-450 van chassis you can use front SumoSprings # SSF-106-40 or # SSF-106-47 if the vehicle is 2-wheel drive. There is no SumoSpring option for 4-wheel drive models but if you have a 4x4 then you can instead use Timbren springs # TUMDF70. The difference between the 2 SumoSpring options is capacity. Set # SSF-106-40 is rated at 500 pounds at 50 percent compression whereas...

  • Benefits of Installing Sumo Springs # SSR-338-47 on Motorhome on 2013 Sprinter Cab Chassis
  • Although the Sumo Springs # SSR-338-47 can help reduce body roll when the vehicle is under load, the primary benefit is to provide additional support to the rear suspension, and therefore help keep the vehicle level, prevent the rear of the vehicle from sagging and to keep the vehicle from bottoming out when under load. The springs will progressively adjust, as more weight is added, the springs become more stiff. The Sumo Spring is meant to replace the factory bump stop, and the manufacturer...

  • 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...

  • 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.

These we do a great job at upgrading the suspension on your 12,340 pound motorhome. The SummoSprings feature progressive load control which will compress according to the weight of your cargo.

  • Will SumoSprings Solo Helper Springs SSR-207-47 Fit 2018 GMC Sierra 3500 Denali 4WD Pickup
  • Yes, the SumoSprings Solo Custom Helper Spring kit # SSR-207-47 fits your 2018 GMC Sierra 3500 Denali 4WD pickup. These jounce springs will usefully stiffen your rear suspension with progressive resistance when it is under load but they will not change the normal ride quality. Their 1500-lb leveling capacity at 50 percent compression means they can give you worthwhile suspension support when you need it without causing drastic changes to the feel of the vehicle.

  • Suspension Enhancement Recommendation 2001 Ford F-350 with Truck Camper to Help Reduce Body Roll
  • Since your 2001 Ford F-350 has stock shocks any shock replacement is going to give you improved ride and prevent body roll. Yours are 17 years old and are definitely worn out so even stock replacements will help quite a bit. The best suspension enhancement kit we have for your situation is the SuperSprings Stabilizer part # SSA13 which is a confirmed fit and does an excellent job removing body roll. It actually has the best reputation for removing body roll of all of the suspension upgrade...

  • 2013 Ford F-250 4x4 SRW with 6.7L Diesel 5th Wheel Trailer Towing Capacity
  • According to Ford, your 2013 F-250 Super Duty 4x4 SRW 6.7L diesel is rated for 15,900 lbs for 5th wheel towing. You won't have any problem with the 5th wheel hitch weight, but the super springs # SSR-103-47-2 will not increase the capacity of your truck, they will simply assist your factory suspension with carrying the weight. Your truck will be able to tow the 5th wheel you mentioned as long as you don't exceed the 15,900 lb capacity.

  • Timbren Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for 2010 Ford F-250
  • For unloaded ride quality you really want to go with suspension enhancement that does not make contact at all times. The Timbren kit part # TFR250SDF is going to be the best option as it does not contact when unloaded. This is the lower capacity kit at 6k. The 8,600 lb kit would be much harsher and would not be what you would want.

  • 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 Jounce Springs For 2013 Ford F-250 SRW 2 Wheel Drive
  • For your 2013 Ford F-250 Super Duty, I recommned the SumoSprings Solo Custom Helper Springs - Rear Axle, # SSR-114-54. These jounce spring replace your factory jounce which is there to basically protect your truck from completely bottoming out. The replacement jounces will engage the jounces when under load and the jounce springs are made to compress progressively for lighter loads and then heavier loads by as much as 80 percent. They engage independently to keep your vehicle level even...

  • Front Helper Springs for a 2010 Ford F-150 4x4 with a Snow Plow
  • For helper springs for your 2010 Ford F-150 4x4 I recommend the Timbren springs # TFF150F. They are going to offer the best support and ride quality out of the options available for your truck. And they would work great for a snow plow on the front of your truck. The SumoSprings, # CSS-1094F, would be adequate but not quite up to the standard and ability of the Timbren springs. I have included a link to the right to our informational article on Timbren springs for you.

  • What Suspension Kit to Correct Sagging Rear End on 2002 Toyota Tacoma During Occasional Towing

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,...
