  • Recommended Suspension Enhancement for a 2019 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 3500
  • I recommend using the SuperSprings SumoSprings for your 2019 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 3500. These are a one-time installation that you never have to worry about checking up on and they provide more support (become more rigid) as you load more things into your Sprinter. For the front axle you need the kit # SSF-106-47 and then for the rear you need the kit # SSR-338-54. The SumoSprings are superior to the other suspension enhancement options because they tend to provide more cushion so...

  • How to Choose the Correct Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement for a 2019 Ram 1500
  • If you have a 2019 Ram 1500 that is the standard pick-up truck, the correct Timbren system is the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System # TDR1500DQ, which were designed for standard trucks. The difference between these and the Timbren System # TDRTT1500 is that the latter is made for service trucks, like a tow truck. The reason for this is the design of the springs; if you take a look at the accompanying photo a customer sent in, you can see they are double convoluted, which means...

  • How To Decide Between Standard and HD Roadmaster RAS Leaf Spring Kit for 2018 Chevy Silverado 1500
  • The Roadmaster Active Suspension Custom Leaf Spring Enhancement Kit is an excellent option to provide additional load-leveling support and it will work just fine with an existing weight distribution system. The correct kit for a 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is part # RAS4611 for standard or part # RAS54FR for heavy duty. The standard would be fine for this application but you could go with the upgraded heavy duty option if you felt the need. Please note, we actually don't carry the...

  • Sumo Springs Versus Timbren Suspension Enhancement For 2019 Jayco Precept 31UL 22,000#
  • While both the Timbren Suspension Enhancement System # TFFF53B & # TFRF53A and the SumoSprings Rebel Custom Helper Springs # SSF-170-40-2 & # SSR-180-54-1 are both great solutions for your 2019 Jayco Precept 31UL, there are some differences to take note of. Timbren is a bit more renown in this space and while a very solid product, that strength comes with the tradeoff that the ride quality can be stiff. Made from a rigid rubber construction, it can be less forgiving and this has been...

  • Comparing Timbren and SumoSprings Suspension Enhancement for 2019 Thor ACE 30.2 Motorhome
  • The biggest difference between the two for your 2019 Thor ACE 30.2 motorhome, and the reason why I highly recommend the SumoSprings over the Timbren, is what each product is constructed from. The Timbrens are made from a strong, rigid rubber while the SumoSprings are made from microcellular urethane. This is important because it means the SumoSprings will compress more gently, while the Timbrens are known to give a much stiffer ride. The front axle and rear axle fits for your 2019 Thor...

  • TorkLift StableLoad Vs. Timbren for 2020 Ford F-350 Super Duty
  • I talked to some of our guys down in our installation bays and based on the feedback I received, I definitely recommend the Timbren Suspension Enhancement System # TFR350SDJ for your 2020 Ford F-350 Super Duty. The TorkLift StableLoad # TLA7310S work by engaging your factory lower overload springs earlier than they would otherwise, which minimize sway and assist you when hauling heavy loads. However, disengaging this system requires you to get under the truck and use a rachet (not included)...

  • Which Will Have Better Ride Quality for 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500 the RAS Standard Duty or HD
  • If you are worried about ride quality I would go with the lower rated # RAS4611 over the higher rated # RAS54FR for your 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500 4x4. Both will work great but the lower rated one will be easier to fine tune the amount of support and ride quality you want without having to give up too much on either end.

  • What is the Difference Between the Roadmaster RAS3611-YHD and RAS3611-Y
  • The difference between the # RAS3611-YHD and the # RAS3611-Y is that the RAS3611-YHD is a heavy duty suspension enhancement designed to provide up to 3000-lbs of leveling and support; the RAS3611-Y is only designed to provide up to 2000-lbs of support. We do recommend the # RAS3611-YHD for trucks carrying heavy loads frequently or those towing heavy 5th wheels and trailers. These kits are easy to install and require no drilling, just attaching some bolts. I've linked a review video we...

  • Comparing the Timbren SES Part TFR350SDJ and Part TFR250SDJ for a Ford F-250/F-250
  • The Timbren Suspension Enhancement System part # TFR350SDJ is correct for your 2017 Ford F-350 whereas the Timbren Suspension Enhancement System part # TFR250SDJ is for a 2017-2019 Ford F-250. The brackets on both of these systems are the same so you can use one on the other but the F-250 kit has a 4-1/2" tall spring whereas the F-350 kit has a 5-3/16" tall spring. Therefore, the F-250 kit will not engage as soon as the F-350 kit when used on a F-350. The later engagement will equate to...

  • Correct Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs for a 2020 Ford F-250 4x4
  • The correct Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs for a 2020 Ford F-250 4x4 is part # F89ZR (Same as W217602620). This kit was redesigned specially for the 4x4 models. If you don't already have a compressor system picked out, the Air Command F3 Compressor System part # F2590 is what I recommend because it's wireless so no lines or wires need to be run inside the cab.

  • Best Suspension Enhancement for 2017 Ford F-150 to Reduce Towing Suspension Sag
  • The RAS systems are by far the best suspension enhancement kits out there for vehicles like your 2017 Ford F-150 to reduce suspension sag. Main reason is that unlike other system this does not make your ride quality when loaded or unloaded (many state that the ride quality improves greatly) and also does not require the maintenance that air bags do as well. For as much as you plan on towing I'd go with the HD model part # RAS3611-YHD which gives 3,000 lbs of suspension support over the...

I recommend to use the SumoSprings part # SSF-170-40-2 for the front axle and part # SSR-187-40-1 for the rear axle. The SumoSprings are easier to install and do not require any upkeep.

  • Choosing Between SumoSprings or Timbren for 2013 Fleetwood Storm 32BH
  • Although either the # SSR-187-40-1 Sumo Spring or the Timbren # TFRF53A would be a great choice, the Timbren Aeon spring is actually rated higher at 8600 lbs, versus 2600 lbs for the Sumo Springs alternative. Neither of these options will come into play unless the factory suspension gets compressed. If ride quality is the more important consideration, the Sumo Springs option is what I'd recommend as they' give a more supple ride. If reducing roll in the corners is foremost in your mind,...

  • Recommended Suspension Enhancement for 2020 Ford F-350
  • I recommend using the Air Lift LoadLifter 7500 XL Air Helper Springs - Rear Axle # AL55FJ, which will definitely beef up the rear end of your 2020 Ford F-350 and provide you with a fully customizable suspension enhancement. These air bags can be filled up as needed to provide you with as much or little support as you like, so they're especially helpful when you're towing or have a payload in the truck bed. To keep your air bags filled up at all times and give you the ability to constantly...

It is important though to keep in mind that any weight coming from behind the rear axle of your F-150 and from the trailer hitch itself should also be considered when choosing a suspension enhancement system, as this will be included to...

  • Does Roadmaster Leaf Spring Enhancement Kit Affect Unloaded Ride Height On 2021 Silverado 1500?
  • The Roadmaster Active Suspension Custom Leaf Spring Enhancement Kit for your 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 will not affect the unloaded ride height or ride quality. This system only comes into play when the truck is loaded down; when weight is added to the back of the truck this kit automatically adjusts to keep your truck level and reduce body sway on turns and also enhance braking and traction. When deciding if you should get the Standard Kit # RAS4611 (rated at 2,000lbs) or the Heavy...

The reason I recommend going with this spring is because it has the perfect combo of support/comfort therefore will help with reducing sag while loaded or towing while also not decreasing ride quality.

  • In regards to the SumoSprings Solo Custom Helper Springs part # SSF-106-47 for 1,000 lbs and part # SSF-106-40 for 500 lbs for a 2013 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, the difference is the hardness of the spring rather than length. Therefore, they will both engage at the same time but the amount of give for example will be different. The softer 500 lb spring will have more give therefore offers a smoother ride but also does not provide as much body roll reduction as the harder 1,000 lb version....

  • Differences Between AirLift and Firestone Helper Airbags For a 2019 Ram 2500
  • I recommend the Firestone 7,500 lb Ride-Rite Label Air Helper Springs part # F2706 for the 2019 Ram 2500 because of their durability compared to the Air Ride Helper Springs part # AL57589. Both of the brands have a 7,500 lb capacity like you mention however they are constructed differently. The Firestone bags are constructed of 4 layers of rubber compared to the 2 layers of the Air Lift springs. The Firestone bags also use a crimp rolled seal to keep the bags anchored compared to the Air...

I went out to the warehouse and double-checked these measurements just now. The 1" space for the # TFRTT350J kit is optional and does not have to be installed.

  • Can Spacers Be Added To Timbren Service Duty Model for 2020 Ford F-350
  • The correct Timbren Suspension Enhancement System for a 2020 Ford F-350 is part # TFRTT350J for service duty applications and part # TFR350SDJ for standard duty applications. The service duty models are smaller in height but more dense so they offer more support. The only time the service duty models should be used is with an in-bed camper in which case the truck would be loaded all the time so your space between the spring and contact point would be little to none.

The Hide-A-Goose # 9468-94 does have the highest weight capacity of the available goosenecks for your 2019 F-250, and the air bags are a great addition to keep the back end from sagging while your towing.

  • 7,500 lb or 5,000 lb Firestone Air Bags For 2021 Ford F-250 Super Duty

The weight ratings are exactly what you said, the amount of weight it can assist up to; so when towing a trailer, the air bags have a capacity of up to either 5,000 lbs or 7,500 lbs.

  • Recommended Air Spring System for 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500
  • I personally prefer the Air Lift # AL57288 over the Firestone # F2609, because of the design of the air bags themselves. The Air Lift bags are constructed using roll plates where the spring meets the mounting bracket. This actually increases the capacity as well as helping to prevent the springs from being damaged. You can use air springs along with a trailer that has weight distribution. Set the air springs as you'd typically have them, and then install and set up the weight distribution...

I checked with Firestone and they show the same two kits for this particular truck. I wonder if the kit numbers they use on their site (which are W217602598 and W217602706 respectively) might be adding some confusion. These numbers...

  • Will SumoSprings Help Sag With 2020 GMC Sierra 1500 But Keep Ride When Not Towing
  • The SumoSprings will do a fantastic job helping eliminate sag when you are towing with your 2020 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali, and won't affect your smooth ride when you are not towing. The reason is, when installed, if you aren't towing there will be a space between the SumoSpring and your axle and the spring won't come into contact with it. The only time you might feel it slightly is when going over a particularly large bump, but otherwise it won't be noticeable. There are two SumoSprings...

  • Differences in Torklift StableLoad Systems And Will They Replace Airbags
  • I wouldn't say that the TorkLift StableLoad Suspension Upgrade w Quick-Disconnect # TLA7310S takes the place of an airbag system and they can definitely be used together with a system like the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs # F89ZR. This StableLoad kit simply engages your overload springs sooner, which will help reduce sway. Some differences between these solutions are that airbags are easily adjustable and can adjust side to side to support off center loads. The StableLoads...

  • I reached out to my contact at SuperSprings to determine the best helper spring for your 2021 Trailboss truck. You were comparing the SuperSprings # SS45FR with the SuperSprings # SS65FR. These helper springs will have about a 1" gap before they contact the suspension and then they will compress and further support your load, so there will still be just a little bit of squat at the back of the truck. The # SS45FR springs are bigger and will support more, whereas the # SS65FR springs are...

We have the part # SSR-307-47 which can provide up to 1,500 lbs of additional support or we have the # SSR-307-40 which can provide up to 1,000 lbs of support. Since you will be on the higher end of your towing capacity the better option would be the 1,500 lb # SSR-307-47. Unlike other options (Timbren specifically) the SumoSprings aren't nearly as harsh so the higher capacity kit won't make your daily...

  • Difference Between Timbren Jounce Springs for 2019 Chevy Silverado 2500HD

The single-convoluted springs are designed for service vehicles like tow trucks because they have less travel - they won't compress as much - than double-convoluted springs, making them more rigid for heavier-duty work.

The Timbrens are much denser than the SumoSprings so although they will provide more support, they will also produce a rougher ride.

  • The best suspension enhancement we offer for your 2018 Ford F-150 that is towing would be the Roadmaster Active Suspension kit part # RAS3611-YHD. This will give you the support to prevent the porpoising, will improve ride quality and stability, and will reduce suspension sag as well. Other similar options might provide additional support but they will make the ride quality harsher. You will need to reset your weight distribution setup after installing this kit though.

However, what you're able to use is going to be dependent on whether or not your Sprinter has 2wd or 4wd.

  • 2019 Ram 2500 Suspension Enhancement that will Maintain a Comfortable Ride when Unloaded
  • The Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs, part # F2598, can indeed work with your 2019 Ram 2500. However, because of your desire to have an easy ride when not loaded, I do not recommend going with air springs. Even on the lowest psi, there will be some impact on your ride. You can avoid that by going with a different suspension kit. I recommend the SumoSprings Rebel Springs, part # SS27GR. These jounce-style springs are a two-piece suspension kit that are rated for 5000 pounds like...

The Timbren Suspension Enhancement System part # TFRTT350J is for models with constant loads like service bodies or truck bed campers therefore, not ideal for towing or hauling. The Timbrens are actually one of the most popular suspension enhancement systems on the market due to both cost and ease of installations. Furthermore, they will provide...

  • Choosing Between Air Lift Load Lifter 5000 or 7500 For 2018 Ram 2500 Towing 5th Wheel
  • It sounds like the purpose of getting the air helper spring would be to counteract the 1 inch compression you're getting in your rear suspension caused by the pin weight of your 5th wheel. If that's the case, I believe that the AirLift 5000 would be sufficient, as the pin weight of your 5th wheel is very unlikely to be more than 5000 lbs. When you're not towing, the 7500 series would make for harsher ride quality, so I'd go with the 5000. The 7500 series is better suited for folks that...
