How to Reduce Suspension Sag When 2017 Hyundai Sante Fe AWD is Towing a Trailer


Id like to find a way to support the rear suspension of our 2017 Hyundai Sante Fe AWD now that we tow a trailer. Since it has a multilink suspension, I havent been able to find a way to add any extra support or leveling. Hoping you experts know how. Thanks.

I wish we had suspension enhancement that fit your 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe, but at this time we don't have anything that fits. I do have a really great option though that's actually better for trailer towing than suspension enhancement. Instead I would recommend you get a weight distribution system. WD systems are better than suspension enhancement for towing situations as it helps level the tow vehicle by redistributing some of the tongue weight of the trailer up to the front axle. This improves braking and handling much more than suspension enhancement.

The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of the setup when it is loaded and ready to tow. This figure also includes the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. I attached a help article on determining tongue weight for you to check out as well. You will want the loaded tongue weight of your setup to fall right in the middle of the tongue weight range of the system you use.

Once you know your tongue weight you will want to check out the link I attached that has all of the weight distribution systems we carry. You will be able to select your tongue weight from the filters to see what would be rated for your setup.
