Insert these helper springs in between the individual coil loops in your rear coil springs to defeat driver fatigue and add better support for heavy loads. Most factory coil suspensions have a difficult time hauling added weight. The rear coils may struggle with supporting the extra load placed on your rear axle when you're towing a trailer or using a hitch-mounted cargo carrier or bike rack. If your coil springs are totally squished under a load, the lack of shock absorption can be harsh on your backside, especially if you spend long hours sitting in your vehicle while driving to your campsite.

Coil SumoSpring installed between rungs of coil spring

Inside each helper spring, a core of microcellular polyurethane foam adds cushioning between your coils to make your ride more comfortable. Each doughnut-shaped spring has H-shaped channels at the top and bottom that fit to the rung of an individual coil in your rear coil springs. The cushioning absorbs shock, but also works progressively to better support weight, keeping your truck level.

Unlike air springs that fit inside your coil springs, these polyurethane springs require no air pressure monitoring, and they are easier to install. Say goodbye to air lines, valves and air tanks and hello to maintenance-free suspension support. Unbumpify your ride with Coil SumoSprings for coil suspensions.

Kia Soul

Under most conditions the springs do not compress enough to be needed, but pulling our pop up camper with our Kia Soul, they smooth the ride and keep us level

2013 Subaru Outback Wagon

The instructions, well!! lack a bit of detail. My first instinct was to return them . I called the manufactures tech line ,and got the 10-36 asap.

........ after that the install was a breeze !!
I am in the opinion these helper springs will stiffen the rear coil enough to balance a heavier tongue or small trailer weight.

Do these work well towing a 2200 lb work trailer hauling a moderate load with a 03 tahoe
-- comment by: Tracy - 06/08/2014

Subaru Outback Wagon

We purchased these for our Outback about a year ago. They definitely improved the ride when towing our tear drop trailer, especially over the “washboard” sections of I80 in PA, and some of the logging roads in northern Maine. Our mechanic complimented us on the choice as well. Not needing a total suspension upgrade, these helper-springs are a great alternative for an improved ride for small vehicle lite/medium load road hauling. We’ve made several purchases from e-trailer – these hit the mark like everything else.


These items worked great! Easy to install as the video guides helped a ton!


Etrailer customer service is always excellent.

product installs easily and quickly and performs as claimed. Provided just enough additional compressive loading resistance in conjunction with the rear struts to prevent bottoming out while towing a lightweight pop up camper. Quick fix for folks hauling something with 100 pounds or less of tongue weight.

Tips: 1" overlap worked best on my Subaru. SumoSpring elastomer cut easily and accurately with a band saw. Knife works but the elastomer is slippery and the cut is less than accurate.
As you push the zip ties through their holes put an index finger under the hole on the inside and direct the end of the zip tie upwards to make it easy to retrieve. Make zip ties snug but not so tight they distort the geometry of the elastomer.

Continue to be pleased with the SumoSprings on our 2005 Subaru Outback. The alternative was to spend $800 for new heavy duty rear struts. They work well to prevent bottoming out when towing a camper and dont seem to effect the overall ride quality when not towing a trailer.

Coil SumoSprings for a 2008 Honda Fit Sport. I ordered the correct springs based on etrailer's website and when it came time to install them, we discovered they were too big. I called etrailer customer service and was fortunate to be connected to Natalie L. Natalie was patient and after a couple of calls, found the springs that work for my vehicle. Natalie updated the website to reflect the accurate part number. Natalie, thank you for making the return process painless. Your customer service was outstanding, Natalie. As an aside, it's difficult finding and keeping good employees. I'd do what I could to keep Natalie.

The replacement springs have been installed and working as expected.

Subaru Outback Wagon

These work really well to keep the back end of my Subaru Outback from dropping when towing my 5x10 trailer.

2013 Volkswagen Touareg

Installed this on my 2013 Diesel Cayenne as I put larger tires on it and when hauling trailers it bottomed out. It still does from time to time, but it has been drastically improved.

2011 Subaru Outback Wagon

Just installed them on my ‘11 Subaru Outback and they appear to function well over 1 short trip. I was initially concerned as following the instructions demanded I trim almost 4” off of them, but a tech at the manufacturer stated it would be fine. I did and installation was a breeze

2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek

Easy Easy Install
Great directions
in minutes
Did remove the rear wheels
Cause it is easier
Can't wait to see how they work with a trailer on my Subaru XV Crosstrek


For me it's dont seem to make a big difference. Maybe if i double the kit I will fill it. But it hold nicely in place, they are in place about a year now and the tirap do the job. It's easy to install. But for the price I will figure to replace the coil spring by stronger one.


Arrived sooner than expected, installation was simple and quick. It seems as though I will havean additional 1” of lift. Looking forward to trying it out on a trip.
It fitted on my Forester 2015.

2011 Ford Crown Victoria

Coil SumoSprings-These supported my Crown Vic towing my trailer LOADED from Pennsylvania to Florida no bottoming out. In FL, I tow my 16 ft boat no problem. I like my Crown Victoria P7-F150!I recommend this product 100.Great service again from etailer!

Review from a similar SumoSprings Coil in Vehicle Suspension

Works exactly how I needed. The Ride is still very nice. There's about 350lbs with the weight of the box & rack. Suspension in the rear used to sag a bunch, even with a 2" suspension lift.

Ive kept them installed for the last year and the cars ride quality has never suffered. Great product!!
Trevor T - 10/17/2022


Review from a similar SumoSprings Coil in Vehicle Suspension

About all I can say for these is that they did raise the back of my Expedition EL about a 1/2". However, they didn't stay in place for even a year. As far as helping the ride of the truck with the travel trailer, I *think* it helped, but I really don't know if it is anything more than the placebo effect. I removed them before having Bilstein 5100 series shocks installed, with the spring collar set to raise .4", which did make a noticeable, positive difference in the way the truck handled when towing.


Review from a similar SumoSprings Coil in Vehicle Suspension

Installed the CSS-1168R Coil SumoSprings Custom Helper spacers on a 2011 Honda Ridgeline 4 wheel drive rear springs. Installation took about 45 minutes including removal of tires. Once spacer was started the installation was easy.
Zip ties were a little more difficult because of the dust strut covers installed by Honda.

Excellent product. Holding up great. When towing my camper, the squat is less the 1. Much better then before when 3 was the norm.

Review from a similar SumoSprings Coil in Vehicle Suspension

Took a chance and ordered rears for my 2021 AWD Pacifica even though the AWD model wasn't listed. After cutting a couple of inches off they fit perfectly! Coils are tight so you'll need to unbolt the bottom shock bolt to gain an extra inch of decompression. Once installed there's no difference in ride hight or ride with the van unloaded. Once loaded up it gives the extra support needed to prevent scraping my muffler pulling in and out of driveways. I know this mod voids the warranty, but it was a chance worth taking.


Review from a similar SumoSprings Coil in Vehicle Suspension

This one year review. We have a 2018 Mercedes Metris, it's just a big mini-van, but not a sprinter. The suspension is fairly soft, ok for city driving, but a little soft for 70+. When hauling a trailer we would gently sway, not great, so we got the rear set and it helped quite a bit, we followed with the front set 3 weeks later.

Overall it firmed up the suspension enough to really help without it being too firm. It raised the stance about 1/2" and is relatively easy to install.

Would buy again.


Review from a similar SumoSprings Coil in Vehicle Suspension

Did a great job helping with squat and not impacting unloaded ride quality. I have these installed in my 2019 Ford Expedition FX4 with a leveling kit so any sort of load really highlighted rear squat. I am pulling a 36' long 7000lb loaded travel trailer and I would consider these a must have. Install was pretty straight forward, take the weight off the rear tires, soap them up a little bit and they slide in with a little effort.

  • Will Rear Suspension Enhancement Springs Increase the Tongue Weight Capacity of a Vehicle
    Rear suspension enhancement will not increase the tongue weight capacity of a vehicle. They will only reduce the amount of sag in the rear suspension. I looked up the owners manual for your 2008 MKX and it looks like the maximum tongue weight capacity for your vehicle 350 lbs no matter what additional components are used. My recommendation would be to reduce the tongue weight on the trailer. If your travel trailer has anything mounted on the tongue such as propane tanks or storage bins,...

    So far as of June 2019 there aren't any suspension enhancement options for a 2018 Subaru Forester, but if you can get me some measurements of your rear suspension springs I can make a recommendation for correct Coil SumoSprings Custom Helper Springs like the part # CSS-1094R you mentioned.

    Ideally you want a ball mount that allows you to tow your trailer level, but this will not keep your 2014 Subaru Outback Wagon from sagging slightly when the trailer is hooked up. To prevent sagging you would need suspension enhancement like the Coil SumoSprings Custom Helper Springs for Coil Spring Suspension # CSS-1094R which is confirmed to fit your Outback as long as it is not a 2WD model.

    The # CSS-1094R Coil SumoSprings helper spring would indeed help reduce some of the minor sag caused by the tongue weight of a trailer being applied to the rear suspension of your Touareg. The product mounts in between the coils of your existing rear springs to provide additional support and dampening. They will also help reduce body roll experienced in turns. This is the only helper spring option we offer for your 2015 VW Touareg. I'll link to a video that explains more about the Coil...

  • Will Installing The SumoSprings CSS-1094R On A 2020 Subaru Ascent Lift The Rear When Unloaded?
    As the Coil SumoSprings # CSS-1094R will fit in between the slats of the coil spring on your 2020 Subaru Ascent, it will not lift the rear up at all. However, they will definitely help if the back of your vehicle is sagging as they will supplement your factory springs and give them a little support when needed.

    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.

    Since your 2014 Subaru Outback is not rated for use with a weight distribution system the best option would be a suspension enhancement kit that fits your vehicle like the Coil SumoSprings part # CSS-1094R. But no option will give your vehicle/hitch a higher towing capacity to tow beyond the capacities of your vehicle. We do have higher rated hitches that fit your vehicle like the Draw Tite part # 76227 but if your vehicle is rated for only 200 lbs tongue weight this also wouldn't give...

  • SumoSprings Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for a 2009 Subaru Outback Wagon
    Yes, there are SumoSprings available that are confirmed to fit your 2009 Subaru Outback Wagon. If you have the H6 engine you would want the part # CSS-1069R. If you do not have the H6 engine you would want the part # CSS-1094R. Other customers who have bought these two part numbers have left reviews saying the install was pretty easy and that removing the wheels helped. Soapy water can also be used if the spring is being stubborn.

  • Suspension Enhancement Recommendation For 2004 Chevrolet Tahoe 4x4
    Personally, since you are in the market for a smoother ride, I recommend the Coil Sumo Spring Custom Helper # CSS-1094R, which, as an added bonus will help support heavy loads on your rear suspension. The Coil Sumo Spring, unlike the AirLift # AL60769 that you referenced, will not have to be adjusted or monitored. I have attached the installation directions, but, basically, they simply fit within your existing coil springs and secures with zip ties.

The SumoSpring kit will give you rear suspension support that won't require maintaining air pressure so it's a maintenance free solution.

The two Draw-Tite hitches that fit this car are the Draw-Tite # 76227 and # 75673.
