Sumo Springs Recommendation for 2018 Ford F-250 SuperDuty when Bumper Towing Reflection 312BHTS


I have a 2018 F250 4x4 that I use to pull a bumper pull reflection 312BHTS with a Husky WDH using 800-1,200lbs bars Item # HT32218. Im looking to add a little more stability to my towing experience and the Sumo Springs look like a great add-on. Looking for some advice and opinions on what to purchase. I was thinking of adding the Sumo Springs to the trailer Item # TSS-107-40 along with Sumo Springs to the truck, Front - Item # CSS-1168F and for the Rear I was looking at the following but not sure what I would need considering I have a WDH already. Item # SSR-127-47 Item # SSR-127-54 Item # SSR-128-40-2 Item # SSR-128-47-2 Thank you for your time and expertise.

When it comes to adding some extra support to improve your towing experience I love the SumoSprings because they're easy to install and they provide you with progressive load support that doesn't effect the unloaded ride quality on your vehicle. With that said, the TSS-107-40 (for trailers) and CSS-1168F (for coil springs) are not the parts you're looking for.

Because of the 800-1200-lbs tongue weight of your trailer, I recommend using the SumoSprings # SSF-111-47 (front) and # SSR-127-47 (rear) which will do a great job of helping fight body roll and swap you're experiencing while towing. If you use this truck to carry some heavy payloads in the bed when you're not towing or you carry a lot of extra gear when you're camping, going up to the # SSR-127-54 (rear) and # SSF-111-54 (front) are a better choice since they'll provide more support for the heavier loads.

I've linked a cool review video of the SumoSprings that shows how they work and what the different colors of the springs mean when it comes to load bearing.
