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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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 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.

  • Adding SumoSprings to 2013 Itasca Sunova w/ Existing Roadmaster Anti-Sway Bar
  • Without being able to test the two together, I wouldn't be able to definitively tell you whether the two parts would conflict or not. I've spoken with both Roadmaster and SuperSprings by phone, and they both feel that the two products wouldn't interfere with each other, since the Sumo Spring unit will sit in front of the axle, atop the leaf spring to the inside of the frame member, as you can see in the diagram I've provided for you. Your best bet would be to visually compare the diagram...

  • Install Instructions For SumoSprings Custom Helper Springs For 2013 Winnebago On Ford F-53 Chassis
  • I have attached the installation instructions for the SumoSprings Maxim Custom Helper Springs, part # SSR-180-54-1. As the instructions show, it is an easy, bolt-on installation and all of the necessary hardware is included. Please note that installing these will not increase the load-carrying capacity of your Winnebago.

  • SumoSprings Recommendation for 2016 Newmar Bay Star Sport 3306 on Ford F-53 Chassis
  • Thanks for all the info on your RV! That makes my job pretty easy! For the front axle the SumoSpring kit you'll want is the part # SSF-170-40-2 and then for the rear you'll want the part # SSR-187-54-1.

  • SumoSprings for a 2018 Thor Challenger 37TB
  • From what I could find it looks like your 2018 Thor Challenger 37TB is on an F-53 chassis. If this is the case then you would want part # SSF-173-40-2 for front SumoSprings and part # SSR-183-54-1 for rear SumoSprings. These are rated for a GVWR between 24,000 lbs and 26,000 lbs. Please note that we haven't had a chance as of yet (April 2018) to test fit these on a Thor motorhome. For some reason the Thor motorhomes are a little more difficult to fit so you will want to review the linked...

  • Front and Rear SumoSpring Recommendation for 2017 Winnebago Sunstar 29VE
  • For the front axle you'd want the SumoSpring kit part # SSF-170-40-2 which is a confirmed fit for your 2017 Winnebago Sunstar 29VE then for the rear you'd want the part # SSR-187-40-1 which is also a fit. Both of these are setup for an 18k Ford F-53 chassis.

  • 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....

  • 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.

  • SumoSprings Recommendation for 2017 Thor Axis on E-450 Frame
  • For the weight of a 2017 Thor Axis on an E450 frame you'd want the higher rated SumoSprings part # SSR-130-54 for the rear and then # SSF-106-47 for the front axle.

  • 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...

  • Recommendation For SumoSprings That Work With 2010 Workhorse W20 Or W22 Chassis
  • Based on your information, I recommend the 5 inch tall SumoSprings Solo Custom Helper Springs, Item # SSF-280-47, for your front axle and they work with W20 or W22 variations of your 2010 Workhorse chassis. For rear axle support, I recommend the 8-1/2 inch tall SumoSprings Maxim Custom Helper Springs, Item # SSR-280-54-1.

  • How to Adjust Ride Height on the SuperSprings Custom Suspension Stabilizers
  • There are two levels of adjustment on the SuperSprings Custom Suspension Stabilizer and Sway Control Kit part # SSA46 for your 2017 Ford F-350. The adjustment is located on the shackle that attaches the roller to the bottom of your leaf spring. There are two bolt holes on the shackles. The bottom hole will provide the least amount of support which will in turn cause the vehicle to be raised about an 1" from factory while unloaded. The top bolt hole will provide the most amount of support...

  • SumoSprings Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for 2017 Winnebago Sunova 36Z F53
  • Your 2017 Winnebago Sunova 36Z has a 22k GVWR chassis so the correct # SSF-170-40-2 would be what you need for the front and # SSR-187-54-1 would be what you need for the rear axle.

  • Suspension Enhancement for 2014 Fleetwood Storm 28MS on Ford F-53 Chassis
  • There is a way to make the ride less jarring on your 2014 Fleetwood Storm 28MS, which was built on a 2013 Ford F-53 chassis. From my research your RV has a GVWR of 18,000 lbs, though you'll want to double check just to make certain. I recommend using Sumo Springs on both the front and rear axle, which are going to expand and compress independently of one another in order give you a much more comfortable ride. For your Ford F-53 with an 18,000 lb GVWR, the SumoSprings Rebel # SSF-170-40-2...

  • Recommended Suspension Enhancement for 2016 Ford F-150 with 1,500 Pound Trailer Tongue Weight
  • 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...

  • SumoSprings Recommendation for a 2016 Thor Axis Motorhome on E-450 Chassis
  • We have front SumoSprings that are confirmed as a fit for your 2016 Thor Axis Motorhome, part # SSF-106-40 but at this time we do not have any suspension enhancement setups for the rear. The kit I referenced is the lighter duty kit that would give you a softer ride than the heavy duty.

  • 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....

  • Trailer Equipped with W/D System and Sway Control Still Experiencing Trailer Sway
  • The way that your trailer is loaded can have a significant impact on the way your trailer handles. If most of the load (baggage, etc.) is to the rear of the trailer, it will contribute to the swaying condition you describe. Before proceeding further, I would recommend moving as much gear as possible toward the front of the trailer and see if this improves your handling issues. Keep in mind that increasing the amount of tongue weight might require you to readjust the weight distribution...

  • Recommended SuperSprings Front Suspension Enhancement for 2016 Forest River FR3 28DS
  • For your 2016 Forest River FR3 28DS, I recommend the SumoSprings Rebel Custom Helper Springs # SSF-170-40-2 for your front axle. 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 Custom Helper Springs # SSR-187-40-1....

  • 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 Air Bag Helper Springs for a 2015 Toyota 4Runner
  • The ideal solution to level a vehicle that is sagging when towing a trailer is weight distribution and not helper springs. I can recommend both but for weight distribution you need to go by the total tongue weight. This is the tongue weight of the trailer when loaded and ready to tow plus the weight of anything carried behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. Air bags such as # F4135 for your 2015 Toyota 4Runner are going to offer a better ride and more adjustability than Coil Sumo Springs...

  • Timbren or SuperSpring Suspension Enhancement for 2013 Chevrolet Silverado

Both systems actually do a nice job at maintaining a smoother ride when the vehicle is unloaded. I recommend the SuperSprings Suspension Stabilizer # SSA8MTKT over the Timbren because the suspension reinforcement it provides is a bit less noticeable over bumps...
