SumoSprings Recommendation for 2015 Ram 2500 Towing 8-9K Steel Trailer


I haul a 21 foot steel trailer 5 days a week. With product and trailer weight Im guessing its 8 to 9k. I use a 2015 ram 2500. My question is which sumo spring to get. The black or the yellow. If I went with the yellow would it sacrifice quality of the ride? If I went with black would it be enough to stop sag and keep truck level. It has a leveling kit in the front.

I do have a solution for you, however the black SumoSprings Solo Custom Helper Springs # SSR-610-47 you referenced in your question are not a confirmed fit for your 2015 Ram 2500.

The yellow SumoSprings Solo Custom Helper Springs # SSR-312-54 are a great option for your Ram 2500 for upgrading the rear suspension and keeping your vehicle level. These have a 2,800 pound capacity and the springs will help support the heavy load you're pulling and also minimize sway. They offer progressive load control, which means that even when you are not pulling your trailer or you're carrying a lighter load, the ride quality will not be greatly affected. The springs will compress according to the weight of your cargo.

Another option I recommend looking at is the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs # AL57289. This will provide up to 5,000 pounds of load-leveling support. With this Air Helper Spring system, you can actually manually adjust the air pressure to get the even load distribution and support that is needed, regardless of the type of load you are carrying. I have attached a video demonstration for you to look at.

I have attached a video review of this product for you to check out.
