Expert Answers about Supersprings

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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-170-40-2 for the front axle. I have linked them both to this page for your convenience.

  • What is the Difference Between the SumoSprings Helper Springs # SSR-187-40-1 and # SSR-184-40-1
  • Both the SumoSprings Helper Springs, # SSR-184-40-1 and # SSR-187-40-1, are confirmed to fit the F-53 Ford Chassis of your 2016 Thor Ace RV. The difference between the two sets of helper springs is the # SSR-184-40-1 helper springs has a weigh capacity of 3,000 lbs at 50 percent compression, while the # SSR-187-40-1 springs have a 2,600 lbs capacity. Other than the weight capacity difference, both of these helper springs sets are identical in construction and installation. I have...

  • Sumo Springs Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for 2016 Ford F-53
  • For your 2016 Fleetwood Storm RV that is built on a Ford F-53 chassis you would want the part # SSF-170-40-2 for the front axle and then the part # SSR-184-40-1 for the rear since you said your GVWR is 18k.

  • 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.

  • 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 Rear Suspension Enhancement For 2000 Pace Arrow 36z Motorhome on Ford F53 Chassis
  • The SuperSprings Custom Suspension Stabilizer and Sway Control Kit # SSA41 is a confirmed fit for your 2000 Pace Arrow 36z on Ford F53 chassis. These springs will install over your current springs and will automatically adjust to reduce sway and prevent sagging. Your other option for suspension in the rear is the SumoSprings Maxim Custom Helper Springs - Rear Axle # SSR-185-40-1. These springs mount to your chassis on the top and bottom to maintain support even when not under load....

  • 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 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,...

  • SumoSprings Recommendation for a 2015 Toyota Tundra Towing 22 ft Camper with Dirt Bikes in Bed
  • For your 2015 Toyota Tundra I would recommend the heavier duty SumoSprings part # SSR-610-47 since you will be towing and carrying such a high amount of weight. The lighter duty part # SSR-610-40 would still help, but not nearly as much as you would need the HD version would be the one to use. You would only notice either of these springs if you were to hit a pretty large bump when unloaded.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Recommended Suspension Enhancement System for 2013 Ford F-150 3.5L Ecoboose 4x4
  • Your 2013 Ford F-150 Ecoboost 3.5L 4x4 has a rated 5th wheel towing capacity of 9,600 lbs with your 3.31 axle ratio. You cannot tow more than 5,000 lbs when towing with bumper only. You should have no problem on PA roads with your 28.5 foot 5th wheel as long as your loaded weight is under the 9,600 lb capacity. I recommend adding the SumoSprings Solo Custom Helper Springs - Rear Axle # SSR-117-47 to help prolong the life of your factory suspension when towing. These springs are a...

  • 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....

  • Will SumoSprings Custom Helper Springs # CSS-1168R Reduce Trailer Sway on 27-Foot Travel Trailer
  • The SumoSprings Custom Helper Springs # CSS-1168R that you referenced are the only rear-axle suspension enhancement we offer currently for your 2007 Ford Expedition. These rear coil helper springs are designed to minimize rear-end squat in the tow vehicle, but really will not have much effect on trailer sway. They may improve vehicle ride quality when you are not towing by providing progressive resistance to support cargo loads in the truck but they will not have a significant effect...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Can SumoSprings Be Added To 2002 Chevrolet 4WD Tahoe With Front And Rear Timbrens In Place
  • The first thing you will want to do is inspect your suspension system to make sure it is in good working order. If you have a weak suspension and relying on the Timbrens you already have installed, you will get more bounce than normal. The Timbrens are intended to help with a properly working system to help add support when carrying heavy loads. I called my contact at Timbren and they told me that adding additional support to the rear coil springs on your Tahoe like part # CSS-1094R...

  • Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for 2015 Ram 3500 to Help with Body Roll and Front End Dive
  • For the body roll the best solution for the rear suspension will be the part # SSA23 as it is designed specifically for fighting body roll and providing rear suspension support. The Timbrens would be the way to go for the front suspension. I would go with the 3,000 lb part # TDF25004B though as the 11k Timbrens will give you a harsh ride. These will engage after an inch of suspension travel. You wouldn't want them engaged all the time as that would also give you a harsh ride quality.

  • 2014 Toyota Tacoma Vehicle Suspension Enhancement Recommendation to Prevent Compression or Sagging
  • According to my contacts at Super Springs both the # SSA7 or # SSA1 are confirmed as fit for your 2014 Toyota Tacoma 2 Wheel Drive Access model. However, if you have a Pre-Runner edition of this truck, then the # SSA19 is what you will need. You are correct that the Super Springs # SSA7 is a heavier duty application suspension stabilizer and this will engage when the vehicle suspension is under a load and it will not engage until the vehicle suspension is placed under an additional...

  • 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.

  • Front Anti-Sway Bar for a 2015 Georgetown/2014 Ford F53 Chassis w/Steering Stabilizer
  • You can install the front anti-sway bar # RM-1139-140 on your 2015 Georgetown built on the 2014 Ford F-53 chassis. It is meant to replace the factory bar with upgraded parts including the bushings. Since it fits in place the factory bar it will not interfere with the steering stabilizer. The only thing left would be to install suspension enhancement # SSR-180-54-1 which will fit models with a 16k to 22k gross vehicle weight rating. These springs will further reduce sway, rear end sag,...

  • 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...
