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...

  • Suspension Enhancement That Fits the 2018 Thor ACE 27.2 GVWR 16000 on Ford F-53 Chassis
  • I think I can help make some confirmations for you and we'll go one-by-one on fits for your 2018 Thor ACE 27.2 with a 16,000 lb GVWR built on a Ford F-53 chassis. - Roadmaster Rear Anti-Sway Bar for Motorhomes # RM-1139-149 is NOT a fit as it is designed for vehicles with a chassis GVWR of 22,000, 24,000, or 26,000 lbs. Instead you would need the Roadmaster Rear Anti-Sway Bar # RM-1139-146 (assuming your Thor is less than 34 feet long). - Roadmaster Front Anti-Sway Bar for Motorhomes...

  • 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.

  • Suspension Enhancement for Itasca RV on 2014 Ford F-53 Chassis
  • I recommend having your suspension checked out to make sure there are no issues, but if everything is fine, suspension enhancement springs would help level your Itasca. I could not guarantee this will "fix" your lean but the SumoSprings Maxim Custom Helper Springs # SSR-187-54-1 are designed to help keep your RV level and minimize sway. These springs are for 2-wheel drive models - as each of the available springs we offer are - with a GVWR between 20,000 and 26,000 lbs. As for the bushings,...

  • SumoSpring Recommendation for 2018 Winnebago Intent 26M
  • To help smooth out a jarring ride quality on Ford F-53 motorhomes the best option is to go with a SumoSpring set like the part # SSR-184-40-1 which is designed to cushion bumps as well as help reduce sway. For the front you'd then want the # SSF-170-40-2.

  • 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....

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • SumoSprings Helper Springs Fit for 1999 Fleetwood Bounder Motor Home on F-53 Chassis
  • 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, you will want to use the SumoSprings Maxim Custom Helper Springs, Rear Axle # SSR-185-40-1. These springs have a weight capacity of 3,000 pounds. No drilling is required to install this kit and the installation instructions are linked...

  • Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for a Fleet of 2011 Chevy 3500 Express Vans
  • If your 2011 Chevy Vans are diesel models and cutaway models (service vehicles like ambulances or even RVs) then you can use the SuperCoils, # SSC-14 and it will help in reducing tire wear and wear of other components allowing them to last longer but it will not completely eliminate the problem. If your fleet does not have diesel and cutaway models then I recommend Timbren springs, # TGMFK15A. These springs will get stiffer and harder to compress the more weight is put on them so they...

  • 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.

  • 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....

  • 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...

  • Is Lockdown Kit Needed to Install SuperSprings Suspension Kit on 2014 Ford F-250
  • The SuperSprings Suspension Stabilizer and Sway Control Kit # SSA13 is designed for your 2014 Ford F-250 without overload springs. A lockdown kit is required if the factory springs sit above the axle and the included poly spring pads are necessary. SuperSprings recommends using the Off-Road Poly Pad Mounting Kit # P3KT if you'll be driving your truck off-road.

  • SumoSpring Recommendation for 2014 Itasca Winnebago 38Q
  • Your 2014 Itasca Winnebago 38q has a GVWR of 26k so the best rear set of SumoSprings that you'd need is the part # SSR-183-54-1 and for the front # SSF-173-40-2. I attached an install video for the rear set for you to check out as well.

  • Recommendation to Relieve Pressure on Weight Distribution System
  • Adding a suspension enhancement system like the SumoSprings # SSR-610-40 that you referenced might help to relieve some of the pressure you are having to put on your weight distribution system, but the actual benefits will be pretty minimal. This is essentially because your properly rated WD system won't really allow the springs to even engage too much, since the system is already distributing your tongue weight to the truck and trailer. These two components can also actually work against...

  • Recommended Rear Suspension Enhancement for 2016 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Motorhome
  • For your Coachman Motorhome with a 2016 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 3500 Chassis, I recommend looking at the SumoSprings Solo Custom Helper Springs # SSR-338-47 for the rear axle. These 3,000 pound capacity springs will support a heavy load to level your ride and minimize sway. Although the units provide progressive load control, these are maintenance-free springs, which means you will not need to adjust or monitor them like you would with air springs. I have attached the installation details...

  • Can I use Super Springs with a Weight Distribution System
  • Suspension enhancement systems, like the Super Springs # SSA28, can be used with weight distribution systems. However, Super Springs may not have much of an effect because a weight distribution system is going to be more effective at reducing sag and distributing the tongue weight. However, if you are getting a lot of sag, a weight distribution system is the best solution. If you still have sag after setting up a weight distribution system, I recommend double checking how much tongue...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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....

  • SumoSpring Suspension Enhancement for 2017 Fleetwood Bounder with 22k Ford F-53 Chassis
  • 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...

  • Difference Between the Timbren and Supersprings Suspension Enhancement Systems on a 2015 Silverado
  • While it will not hurt your vehicle, using two suspension enhancement products at the same time could render one product ineffective or will cause one system to be used at limited potential. For example, if you try using both the Timberen Rear Suspension Enhancement System # TGMRCK15S and the SuperSprings Suspension Stabilizer # SSA5MTKT, with a load in the truck, once the Timberen Springs engage the SuperSprings will not be doing much for the load. I do not recommend using both systems...

  • Solution for 2017 Toyota Tacoma that Has Suspension Sag When Towing
  • For your 2017 Toyota Tacoma the correct SumoSpring kit is the part # SSR-612-47 and not the kit you mentioned as that is for the older models. This will reduce the sag but what you might be better off with is a weight distribution system since that reduces the sag too but in doing so helps improve braking and handling as it distributes some of the tongue weight up to the front axle. The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of...

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.

  • Color Choices of # SSR-610-40 Sumo Springs for 2011 Toyota Tundra

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.
