SumoSprings or Timbren Suspension Enhancement For a 2017 Toyota Tacoma Pulling Car Hauler Trailer


I have a 2017 Tacoma TRD Sport and occasionally 2-3 times /year tow an 18 ft car hauler which would be near the Tacos towing capacity. With 90 of my driving is with an unloaded bed, should I go with the Sumos or Timbrens?


Helpful Expert Reply:

I recommend the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System # TTORTUN4 over the SumoSprings Solo Custom Helper Springs # SSR-612-47 for your 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Sport. The Timbrens have a much higher weight capacity at 6,000lbs versus the SumoSprings at 1,000lbs. This will give you a better ride level and stabilization when you are towing your car hauler.

A Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System # EQ37100ET may be a better option if you only need the suspension enhancement when you are towing. This will also give you a sway control when you are using the trailer, making it safer when you drive in windy conditions.
