Rear Suspension Support

Towing or hauling a heavy load can cause rear sag as your factory suspension compresses under the weight of the load. This means that the rear axle is trying to support not only the extra load but also the weight of your vehicle. And because there is less weight on your front axle, your front tires make less contact with the road, which causes problems with traction, steering, and braking. SumoSprings upgrade your vehicle's factory suspension to level your vehicle, improve driving performance, and keep your ride comfortable.


Installed spring when it is not compressed

SumoSprings provide progressive load control - the more you load them, the stiffer they become. With a lighter load, the springs will compress easily for soft engagement and a less bumpy ride. The closed-cell urethane material allows for smooth contact between the springs and your vehicle. And the springs act like a shock absorber to dampen road vibration.


Installed spring when it is compressed

The springs can also compress by as much as 80 percent to support a heavy rear load and to help your factory suspension bear up under the load. This evens out the weight, which levels your vehicle and ensures that your front tires are making better contact with the road. A level ride means that you have improved driving control, ensures safe headlight aim, and helps to minimize sway. The springs also support your factory suspension, which helps prevent sagging and reduces bottoming out.


The springs work independently from one another to support each side of your vehicle. This action helps to reduce body roll when you make a sharp turn. This also helps compensate for an off-center load.


Durable, Custom-Fit Springs

These microcellular urethane springs are tough. They resist abrasion, oil, salt, and UV rays that can more quickly wear out other springs, and they perform well in temperatures ranging from -25 F to 200 F (-33 C to 93 C).


SumoSprings compress vertically with minimum expansion to the sides, so they won't be damaged by nearby mechanical parts and they fit safely into tighter spots. And unlike air springs, SumoSprings require no maintenance or adjustment.


The helper springs are custom designed to fit your vehicle, and they install easily - no drilling required.

Video Transcript for SumoSprings Solo Rear Helper Springs Review

Hey guys, this is Jake here with etrailer. Today we're gonna be talking about the density differences in the different colors of SumoSprings. More specifically, today we're gonna be talking about the blue line of SumoSprings. So just to compare each one to start with, the blue is going to be for your lighter, more frequent use. The black is going to be a more heavier duty, constant use, and then your yellow is going to be a more extreme duty, if you're constantly towing at the max capacity of the vehicle that you're using. To go over each one a little bit more and what case is best for each one, the blue one, which is why it's most popular, is going to be for frequent towing.

If you're towing like what we've got back here, a couple of buckets of salt or if you're going to the store to pick up a load of lumber or different building materials, whatever you're hauling, if you don't have a constant load on these, these are gonna be a great option. If you're wanting to put a set of SumoSprings on, say a sprinter van that's always loaded down with tools or maybe a rigging truck that's got a welder in the back, and you just want a little bit more support than what the factory suspension can supply, the black ones are gonna be a great option if they're always engaged. The yellow is going to be your most extreme option. So if you're pushing your vehicle to its max weight capacities, the yellow's probably gonna be what you're gonna want to go with because they're gonna supply the most support if you're at that max capacity. Now focusing more in on the blue set, they are going to be made out of a softer compound, which is why they're so ideal for people who are not towing all the time because the suspension on the vehicle is designed to be soft for a comfortable ride.

Well, if you go and throw a super stiff add-on spring on there, then it's gonna completely eliminate the fact that you had a softer suspension before. So when you put these on, they're going to help to absorb the shock rather than resist it like the other ones are. For when you hit bumps, this one's going to absorb it. It'll be a soft-cushion feel, whereas those are stiffer, so they're going to hit the frame, and you're gonna feel it transfer through the vehicle. Now, being made out of a urethane material, it's going to make it quiet but still harsh.

With the blue ones they are, like I said, they're gonna be much softer. If you're not towing all the time, these are gonna be a great option to add to your vehicle because you're gonna get the support when you need it and you won't even know it's there when you don't. Now, when it comes to installation, SumoSpring does a great job of making a custom install for each vehicle that you purchase these for. For example, we installed some on this 2020 Nissan Frontier, and this lower bracket is identical to the bracket that the factory jounce bumper was bolted onto. Except this one is going to be a little bit beefier, which is always a good thing.

You want the hardware to be able to support the add-on that you're putting on there. So depending on your vehicle, you can use our fit guide to find the right SumoSpring to fit your vehicle. Let's go ahead and take this over the test course and see how the suspension performs without our SumoSprings, and then we'll get them installed. Now to start off our test course, we're gonna start with just a couple of little bumps. Oh, you can feel a lot of sag in the back end of this truck because it's already compressed, so when we go over a bump there's not much more room to travel after that. When I'm hitting these bumps, the steering on the front feels very light. The steering wheel is kind of doing whatever it wants, and we're going at low speeds too, so this is not even a, not really a true example of what you might experience on the highway with high winds or anything like that to cause sway or any other problems you might have. But this is giving us a very good example of how soft the suspension is. Even with 450 pounds in the bed, that's, I mean, that's hardly nothing for what the owner of this vehicle typically hauls with it. He hauls a heavier trailer to do some side work here and there, and he's got usually about 400 pounds on the tongue or on the trailer hitch itself. So that's a lot more leverage than just in the bed of the truck directly over the axle. So in our little slalom here, driving back and forth, you can feel a little bit of body roll side to side. So hopefully those SumoSprings are gonna help out with some of that roll and help to get this suspension a little bit more dialed in and provides more support for us. Now with our SumoSprings installed in that same 450 pounds in the bed of our truck, take another measurement, we're at 34 and a half inches, so that's only a half inch of sag compared to the inch and a half we had earlier. Now with suspension enhancement, it's designed to provide some support not get it back to that factory ride. We want to have a little bit of sag because that's how we get the correct amount of weight on our ball mount or the tongue of our trailer. For when we are going over bumps is really when it's gonna count. We're not gonna have that same drop that we had in the first run. So let's go ahead and take it through and see how the support is with our SumoSprings. To start off our test course with our SumoSprings installed, we've got that same double bump. You can tell there's a lot more support in the rear now. Now these SumoSprings are still going to be relatively soft compared to a set of Timbrens or something a little bit stiffer, but you can tell, yeah, on that double bump there, it still has that softness that we want, but it's supporting it, and that's definitely what we're looking for out of this set. Now coming around a turn, we didn't have a whole lot of body roll before, but I can definitely tell it's a little bit more solid back there. I went over some small bumps in the parking lot, and I think it's handling quite a bit better than it was before. Again, we've only got about 450 pounds in the bed, so it's not a crazy heavy load, but it's definitely enough to engage our SumoSprings to really see how they work. Now the only thing is with this kit, you're not gonna have the adjustability like you would with a set of airbags, but for the example of this neighbor of ours that owns this vehicle, he doesn't need the adjustability. He's hauling the same load all the time, and it just so happens to be a decently heavy trailer that makes his truck squat a lot more than he feels comfortable with. So this set of SumoSprings is gonna work out great for him. These are gonna be made out of a microcellular urethane, which is essentially another term for foam that has tiny little air pockets in it that allow it to flex enough but also be stiff enough to provide that support. They are also going to be a progressive spring, so the more and more they compress the stiffer they get to provide that support. There are a couple options for jounce-style replacement springs on our website. I do like these a lot because there's other types out there that are much stiffer. They may be able to hold a lot more than these can, but a lot of trucks, such as the Frontier, they don't need that much support. These being rated for 1400 pounds is more than enough support for this Frontier and what it can handle. And the reason for that is, with those stiffer springs, you almost have to be loaded to half the capacity that they can carry in order for them to give you a comfortable ride. These being that softer urethane material, when you go over a speed bump or anything unloaded, you're not gonna feel a knock up against your frame because those other springs, when they engage, since it's such a hard rubber you'll feel it every time you go over a bump or anything like that. With these, you're not hardly gonna feel it because they are that softer material. These jounce-style bumpers are gonna be for the rear of your vehicle, but if you're looking for a front-end suspension enhancement, SumoSprings does make a variety of different products for different vehicles, so be sure to check out our fit guide to see what kits are available for your vehicle if you're having an issue with your front end. Hopefully this video was able to help you decide whether or not the Blue SumoSpring line is the right one for you.

The SumoSprings Solo came to the RV Resort today. I installed them on my Titan SV today in less than an hour. Only drove 10 miles with them and they are what I was looking for. In my opinion it was a needed upgrade and thumbs up!

the best suspension enhancement i have ever made for this pickup truck



by:
2020 Nissan Titan

Installed these on my 2020 Nissan Titan to help smooth out the ride towing. 29 foot 6500 pound travel trailer. Easy install, reasonable price for the benefit, not a huge improvement, but noticeable improvement and enough to be worth it.



by:

Install very easy. Takes less then 20min. These work very well have hand them on 2 trucks now really help with overall stability and handling when bed is loaded with weight. Or have a heavy tongue on a trailer.



by:
2021 Nissan Titan

I had installed this model SumoSpring on my 2019 4Runner and had great results when towing the camper I had at the time. They greatly reduce the bounce when going over dips in the road at highway speeds. Now I have a 2021 Titan and a bigger heavier camper. I expect the same great results on the Titan. Installation was pretty straight forward and took about a half hour. The size difference between the OEM bump stops and the SumoSprings alone should give a better ride when towing my camper.

You can't go wrong with ordering from etrailer. As for the springs, install was truly a breeze. They don't bother your factory ride when empty which is important to me. Haven't hauled anything heavy yet.

I installed Sumo Springs on our 06 Xterra right after we bought our Casita 17' trailer. The back of the X squatted a bit more than I liked. I had also noticed before some tendency to bottom out if the car was full of people and stuff. These ingenious devices are a perfect solution for me! They are about 3/4" clear of being engaged with the axle when unloaded, so the ride is not overly affected, but progressively take up some of the weight when the back end starts coming down with load. It now sits very nicely with the trailer connected, no weight distributing hitch and stuff in the back, and no more bottoming. We've put a good number of miles on the X in the last year, towing and not towing, and they are still doing the job.

I should note, the back of my Xterra is lifted about an inch with AAL springs. If that were not the case, the Sumo Springs would be engaged all the time. That will vary with vehicle.

I will also note that they are non-adjustable, unlike airbags. I kinda like that, I didn't want to mess with adjusting air pressure and such. But once they do start kicking in as one or both wheels travel, they do stiffen it up quite a bit. I mean, there's no way around that; you can't take load without stiffening the suspension. As such I think they inhibit upward axle articulation a bit when 4-wheeling, but for us that's not a big deal. Since they do not connect to the axle, they don't affect downward articulation at all.

The pics are shortly after installation, one with the car unloaded, and two with trailer and gear loaded up.



by:

Very easy installation in about 20 minutes. Very ingenious concept as opposed to bolt on leaf style helper springs



by:

I believe it’s going to be a great addition to my truck when pulling our RV. Looking forward to a smoother, more even ride. I left the 2x4 blocks in overnig8ht and drove around to ensure a good seat for the springs.



by:

I originally purchased the yellow sumo for additional support when hauling a small trailer or taking trash to the dump so I wouldn’t strain the vehicles suspension that I just replaced . I also never like to see a truck squat . Yellows were too stiff when unloaded so I got these blues sumo and it was a great decision . The ride type is back to original “comfortable” and the sumo still provides great handling when cornering reducing body sway / shock absorbing bumps. A good investment !



by:

Gave it 5 because of ease of install - note they use SAE threads 9/16, truck frame and oem is metric 15mm wrench. Makes no difference but don't use oem nuts on spring. I installed all shims supplied and this left about 3/4" gap so hoing its the best for my needs. Easy to reduce if needed.



by:

I used the Sumo spring with the RAS system. I remove the pump stops and installed the sumo(without spacer) so the axle would be one inch from sumo so the RAS does the work when not pulling trailer and sumo sumos are activated with pulling the camper. The stability it created on highway and back winding roads was really great. Feels like a totally different truck when loaded up. The RAS came with an offset spacer to move the bump stop in a better place but I didn’t need it because the bracket with the sumo springs moved the unit back and in and had plenty of clearance for the RAC system. In total they only took15 minutes each side to install once the truck was up and the tires were off. The sumo spring and RAS together were amazing and would recommend them to anyone with an F150 that need a little more support near the bumper.



by:

These were shipped to me mid-trip so I had a good chance to do a before and after with same loads/ same roads for 3100 miles. They were easy to install (in my daughters driveway) in about an hour with one reluctant bolt in the original bump stop. I did not install the hard spacer, I figured I’d add it later if needed. I was able to do the install w/o jacking up the whole truck using a 1 1/2 ton jack under the hitch receiver w/ a jackstand next to it. I needed just a few inches as there’s lots of room under the stock height truck (I was lying on a piece of cardboard). The helper springs didn’t quite touch the axle when the jack was removed. When I first drove it in town with the Sumo’s on it they were not really noticeable. When loaded up with my 22’ Livin’ Lite Axxess trailer (4300lbs with 650lb hitch weight) the rear end would squish into the overload springs a good 3/4” but the truck was about level w/o rear end sag.
Driving home over many of the same roads I noticed it was better over railroad crossings and rhythmic bumps on the highway that previously pitched it fore and aft. The trucks manners were much better overall during big hits (like hitting a curb- yup) and pulling off-highway. The trailer is low so it doesn’t go very far off road so I can’t report on that.
Overall for ease of ordering, of install, simple usage w/o need of airlines and effective control of the rearend of the truck and the trailer I feel they deserve the 5 stars.

I bought and installed the 1000lb Sumo Solo springs to help alleviate rear end squat on my 2024 GMC Canyon Denali when pulling my boat. My boat trailer has a long mono tongue with no weight distribution installed. The boat weighs in at about 5500lbs, the truck fender lip measures 38” high unloaded, once I dropped the hitch down on the ball and the Sumos picked up the load, the fenders measured 36.25” equating to an inch and 3/4 squat. Empty the Sumos have an apx gap of 7/8” above the frame rails. The Sumos were recommended over the Timbrens for my situation of infrequent towing with this truck and to maintain the best ride possible when not towing. So far my ride is virtually unchanged when empty and feels controlled when towing. Installation is straight forward but the instructions could be a little clearer with a diagram showing the intended location of the springs. Luckily an etrailer customer had already done the install and provided some pics so there was no question. I chose to remove the tires to have good access and I’d do it again this way. I supported the truck with a jack stand under the receiver. IMHO the proper method to locate the over frame upper clamp brackets is to push the forward clamp as far forward until it contacts the bed stiffener and you’ll be in the correct location then let all the hardware hang to position itself, tighten as required and enjoy.



by:

These Sumo Springs were easy to install, even for a 70 year old guy. I tow a 7,000lb camper and even tho I have a nice WDH I still had som sag on my Tundra. These helped level it out when towing and got rid of “some” of the bounce. They were really a godsend when I overloaded the bed with about 2,000lbs of pavers. That weight squished the Sumos significantly but the truck drove and rode great. Better and less expensive than air bags.

  • Best SumoSprings For 2023 Nissan Titan
    Between the 1,500 lb SumoSprings # SS95GR and 1,000 lb SumoSprings # SS35GR that fit your 2023 Nissan Titan, the best option is the latter, the 1k springs: - SumoSprings Solo Custom Helper Springs # SS35GR The 1,000 lb capacity is more than enough support for the '23 Titan's suspension, and they aren't as dense as the 1,500 lb springs, which means they aren't going to be as stiff so you'll get a better ride.

  • Recommended SumoSprings for a 2023 Nissan Titan Towing a 6.5K Trailer
    I recommend going with the 1,000lb SumoSprings Solo Custom Helper Springs # SS35GR for 4WD or # SS35GR for 2WD. These are going to give you all the support and control you need, without affecting your factory ride quality on daily driving. The 1.5K capacity springs & higher are more for a setup that is constantly loaded like a built out van or truck with a camper on it full time.

    The SumoSprings Solo Custom Helper Springs # SS35GR will fit and work on your 2021 Nissan Titan PRO-4X just fine as the only exception to this product fitting a 2021 Titan is if the model is a Titan XD. Attached is a review video for you to check out.

  • Best Suspension Enhancement for 2021 Nissan Titan Towing Jayco Camper
    Hey Andries, we have exactly what you are looking for to stop the porpoising you described but it's not the SumoSprings kit. Instead I would highly recommend the Roadactive Kit part # RAS3611-HD which is a confirmed fit for your 2021 Nissan Titan. Of all of the available options the RAS kits do the best job at providing additional suspension suport, improving stability, reducing porpoising, and improve ride quality and handling when loaded and unloaded. Nothing else out there does all...
