How to Reduce Sag on a 2012 Ford F-250 Super Duty with Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer


I have a 2012. F-250 Super Duty 4 door 6.2 gas engine. I pull a 36ft fifth wheel trailer, She swats a little what is the best way to raise it up. Thank you

The best way to reduce the sag on your 2012 Ford F-250 when towing your fifth wheel trailer is to add a rear suspension enhancement system.

The two most common types of rear suspension enhancement systems are air bag systems and rubber spring systems. The rubber spring systems like the SumoSprings and the Timbren Springs, # TFR250SDG, are typically more economical than an air bag kit like the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Springs, # F2550. The Timbren springs and the Ride-Rite kit that I mentioned will fit your truck.

Since you are worried about your truck sagging when you are towing your fifth wheel, I recommend going with a rubber spring option. Rubber springs work best for situations where the load in the truck will stay the same. Air bag kits are more designed for applications that will have varying load weights like when you are hauling mulch, wood or rocks in the truck bed.
