SumoSpring VS Timbren for 2017 Ram 3500 for Ride Quality and 5th Wheel Towing Support

Question:

I am looking between the SumoSpring Solo and Timbren. I have a Ram 3500 SRW 4x4 Diesel and tow a 39foot toy hauler with about 3000lb pin weight. I want to stabilize that load but ride is what I am most concerned about. Which between those two would you recommend?

Expert Reply:

Since you really want a good ride quality the SumoSpring Solo # SSR-312-54 is the way to go. This will give you the support you are wanting without making the ride quality harsh like the Timbrens do. Timbrens provide a lot of support but the ride quality (specifically unloaded) isn't great. The SumoSpring option is a much better balance between support and ride quality so it's what you'll be the most happy with.

Question:

Thank you Jameson. I’m not very concerned about unloaded ride as the truck is used 95 percent of the time for towing. So which do you think would provide the best loaded ride as well as increasing stability?

Expert Reply:

In that case I'd lean towards the Timbrens # TDR3500CA since they do have the most overall support. They are harsher when unloaded but when loaded they tend to provide the best support and stability.
