SumoSprings Solo Custom Helper Springs - Rear Axle

Greetings all.

Haven't found this info anywhere in the forum if it exists. Looking at installing the above product on the rear axle of my tow unit. Looking to see if anyone else has installed same, which poundage 1500lb or 2500lb, what was the results, do they recommend, or what you would do different.

Thanks Much

Not sure what you are looking to add them on...
but I have them on a 2018 F250 CC 4x4.

I waited and caught them on Amazon one day when they hit a large discount. The 1500lb ones. Install was a breeze. I added them because the F250 sat a little low with the 5'er attached. I was happy with them. They helped enough with the squat and I felt like they improved the ride. It was good to begin with, they mainly helped on bridges. I was happy with them. If you are looking for particular information just let me know and I or someone else on here should be able to help.

Good luck.

Thanks for the quick reply. Looking to put them on my RAM 2500. I've got a 8000lb toy hauler with equalizer hitch. Like you, it squats a little in the rear. Just looking to level that out along with a little help on harsh bumps. eTrailer is recommending the 2800lb over the 1500lb. Can't figure that out. I figured the 1500 would be plenty.

Call supersprings direct. They will also recommend the 2800 being that it is closer to your cargo capacity. The install looks easy enough

I have Sumo’s on both frack and front of my Chevy 2500. I can throw 1.25 tons in the bed and it sits level. And that is even after I put on a set of McGaughys 2” drop shackles to get some of the “cat in heat” rake out of the back. I push snow in winter so I put Sumos up front also. Great product. Oh... the ones in the back are 1500#

Bump stops

The Timbren are the same as Sumo w/ higher weight cap. I have on a Tundra, well worth the cost and no maintenance. Corrected rear squat w/ 7500 V-frt, no effect when empty. I got mine from E-Trailer, they carry both brands. Best price I found.

Timbrens are not same as Sumos. Sumos are a cellular foam structure that somewhat equivalent to air bags.

Bump stops

You are correct. Timbren work the same way and will handle a heavier load. Look on E-Trailer, it shows specs for both. When I asked around, I was told the Timbren tended to be more durable. This was from a frame shop that did work for me and E-trailer. I have been very pleased w/ mine after 2 years and 12K + towing. We drive thru Louisiana, horrible roads, w/o pogo stick ride. These controlled ride largely. Given, I was pulling a 1100 tongue weight trailer w/ short wheel base Tundra, at limit.

Well, not sure how some classify “durable”. I have had Sumos on my 2015 2500 since I got it brand new. I live on pretty bad rural gravel roads that it is two miles to nearest hard top. Over 100F many times in summer and teens to twenties below 0 in winter. The pickup primarily is a working truck for my property, various towing needs, lots of hauling, and snow plow work. The Sumos are doing the same job and doing it well.

In the back, they rest right on the rear axle even when empty. They are progressive in their resistance as they are collapsed. On mine just as the pickup reaches a level stance, they provide the full 1500# air ride quality support.
