Rear Suspension Support

SumoSprings helper springs are great for pickup trucks. Towing or hauling a heavy load can cause 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 truck's weight. 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 factory suspension to level your vehicle, improve driving performance, and keep your ride comfortable.


SumoSprings Rebel installed showing separation of 2-piece springs

The innovative 2-piece design of these Rebel springs allows for unlimited suspension travel. This means that there will be more movement in your suspension when you're unloaded or off-roading, which makes your ride smoother and more comfortable.


Each spring has 2 pieces. One piece attaches to the frame of your vehicle. And the other piece attaches to the axle, typically above your existing factory leaf spring. The pieces come together to provide support when you are towing or hauling a heavy load. When you're unloaded, they separate so that they don't restrict the movement of your suspension. The closed-cell urethane springs also act like a shock absorber to dampen road vibration.


SumoSprings compressing under load

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 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 expand and 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.


This kit comes with custom-fit brackets that are designed to easily bolt onto your vehicle.

Bought these for my 3/4 ton. Oh my god, roughest ride . Removed these springs and replaced with air bags.



by:
2016 Chevrolet Silverado 2500

I installed these this afternoon. The install was relatively easy but had to deal with e-brake line guides that had to be modified. The springs have very little gap between top and bottom (close to zero). Unlike the reviews I read before purchasing, the unloaded ride quality was extremely uncomfortable. I'll check with etrailer tomorrow for possible remedies (1" lift block on rear end to create gap?) If the unloaded ride can't be fixed I will try for a return and buy air springs. Stay tuned, the rating can only go up.

The instructions state that e-brake lines and other possible cables may have to be rerouted and pinned up by zipties. These springs do not have a gap when on the ground. Item # SSR-203-40-2 would be good for recreational towing jobs. The springs you purchased are higher rated and would be used for constant work applications. The higher rated springs are stiffer and will have a rougher ride than the recreational lower rated springs.

Outstanding!



by:

They fit fine and installed as described in the printed instructions. Reasonably easy overall, even for a novice like me. My only comment is that the video that was included showed a different set up than what was delivered. That made me unsure if I had the proper system for my truck, which indeed I did, but the difference between what was shown in the video that was "for my truck" and what was in the box had me wondering. Never-the-less, all was correct and went well.

Product is excellent. The springs really reduced the squat I used to have in my truck when I hooked up my fifth wheel camper. Actual reduction in squat was around a 2 inch change. This also keeps the nose of the truck from rising in response to the rear sag I used to have, which makes the overall handling of the total rig a bit better as well. Also, the ride, while connected, is noticeably smoother and feels more stable while driving in stout crosswinds, which we frequently enjoy, here in Oklahoma.



by:

Everything came in a timely manner and was as advertised. No issues with the order or product.



by:

Springs performed exactly as described. The professional staff described how to measure the truck with and without 5th Wheel load and sent the springs I needed. Since installation the level has maintained and steering and ride improved. Etrailer staff got me exactly what I needed.



by:
Nissan Leaf

Installation was quick and easy. the instructional videos were the deciding factor to purchase this product. after installation everything was just as claimed. adding a 2300 load in the bed of the truck cause very little squat and actually lowered the front about an equal amount (1" in the back and 1/4" in front). since 60-70% of the trucks braking is from the front wheels this was import to me. options were airbags, adding additional leaf springs or this option. I was cautioned that when your vehicle is service with airbags installed putting the truck on a lift for oil change for example you might tear the airbag. this option on a lift the two sections just separate and go back together when lowered. I was happily surprised by the side to side stabilization removing the need for additional suspension additions.

Received SumoSprings and installed them on Chevy HD2500 Duramax that same afternoon. Took about 1-1/2 hrs. and instruction was straight-forward. Watch etrailer [install video] first...it will save you some time. Will test out ride this weekend while pulling 5th wheel RV.

Front and rear Sumo Springs installed. Have not had a chance to hit the highway as yet. Locally a very good ride. Thanks to Joanne K. for all of her help.



by:

I put a small leveling kit in my 2500hd Silverado. I noticed afterwards towing my excavator or dump trailer I was getting some rear sag when I had my trailers loaded heavy. I considered doing air bags for the rear. Instead I installed the sumo springs. I installed them in about an hour. Very happy with them. No noticeable difference in ride quality while empty. And they keep my truck level when I’m hauling my trailers. 5 stars!



by:

The front Sumo Springs made a major difference in the stability of my Winnebago motorhome. It handles the bumps much better without major jarring of the passengers and dampens the side to side motion in turns and under crosswinds.

  • Recommended Suspension Enhancement To Level A 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500 Out While Hauling A Trailer
    Hey John, If you're referring to the SuperSprings # SSA13MXKT you wouldn't really be getting much of an improvement over the RAS system since they operate the same way and both have similar capacities. Air springs would allow you tor adjust the height quite a bit more precisely but require a maintenance and you'd need an air compressor to adjust the psi levels. You could increase the capacity of your jounce springs to ones like the # SSR-203-47-2 but that could affect you unloaded ride...

  • Recommended SumoSprings Rear Helper Springs for 2022 Chevy Silverado 3500
    We have two options of SumoSprings for your 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 3500. The # SSR-203-40-2 is rated for 3,000 lb. capacity at 50% compression and the # SSR-203-47-2 is rated at 5,000 lb. capacity at 50% compression. The 3,000 lb. rated # SSR-203-40-2 are typically adequate for most and my recommendation needed for lighter towing or have light or mid-size fifth wheel trailers. If you need for heavier-duty application such as towing a larger 5th wheel or toy haulers, I suggest you...

If the trailer weighs 14,500 lbs then the pin weight is likely around 2,200 lbs. I'm sure the 3,000 lb option would be alright but you are...

    The SumoSprings Rebel Custom Helper Springs part # SSR-203-40-2 are what I recommend for a 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 2500. These springs will be great for all recreational towing jobs whereas the higher rated part # SSR-203-47-2 will be more geared towards constant work applications. The reason you just don't want to go with the highest rated options is because the higher rated springs are stiffer and will have a rougher ride when you rated for them.

    You're experiencing the harsher ride because the overload springs engage when you tow, so what you're really needing to do is add some support to either prevent or delay the overload springs from engaging. I spoke at length with my SuperSprings representative, who tells me that the # SSR-203-40-2 would significantly improve your ride quality while towing, but using the product could possibly make your ride a bit more harsh when you're not towing.

    As you mentioned not towing all the time, I do not recommend going with the SumoSprings Rebel # SSR-203-47-2. This will be far to heavy duty as is intended more for full time towing or an in-bed camper. Your suspension will end up being affected pretty severely when not under load, so I suggest one of the lower rated options. Specifically the SumoSprings Rebel # SSR-203-40-2.
