Best SumoSprings for 2019 Ram 2500 with 1,480 Pounds of Trailer Vertical Weight?

For a great set of SumoSprings for your application, that is the rear axle SumoSprings Solo Custom Helper Springs # SSR-312-54. This model provides 2,800 pounds of load leveling capacity for your 1,480 pounds of added vertical tongue weight with your 5th-wheel trailer. It also helps accommodate some of the horizontal weight from the trailer. on your 2019 Ram 2500 4x4. This decreases rear sag and provides you with more overall control of your vehicle.

If you are open to suggestions, if your truck does not have a factory air suspension already, I recommend going with the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate Air Helper Springs with Internal Jounce Bumpers # AL88289 instead of the SumoSprings. The LoadLifter 5000 provides more support and customization. This is because with the air bags, you can inflate them to 5 psi - 100 psi for your desired firmness that you can test while the trailer is connected. Also, while the SumoSprings require uneven ground or bumps to activate, the air bags activate instantly with your suspension. While the installation is a bit more involved, it is truly worth the effort. Also, these air bags work with your fifth-wheel hitch.

For the ultimate air bag experience, I recommend a compressor system like the Air Lift Load Controller Compressor System for Air Helper Springs # AL25852 or the wireless AirLift WirelessAIR System # AL74000EZ. Since both of these compressors are dual-path systems, you will be able to inflate the air bags independently from each other for greater customization. In addition to the Bluetooth compatibility, the WirelessAIR also provides you with continuous diagnostic tests that let you know that the air bags are running safely and efficiently.

I went ahead and attached videos of all of these products for you to check out.
