Sumo Springs

The Sumo Springs are only good for 2000 lbs.
The Vehicle Suspension for 2015 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter - Timbren TMBRSP35A
are good for 7000 lbs.
Tried the sumo first, didn't do the trick.

The link you shared seems to be for rear Timbrens and this thread is about steering? Did you have Sumo's in the front, as well?

If you are talking about rear Sumo's, they are actually 3000# per spring. What is more important than that is what they are made out of.

Sumo's are made of very dense progressive closed cell foam as opposed to rubber in the Timbrens. I've used the Timbrens in the past on company fleet sprinters and they were too harsh.

I have several Winnie View MBS owner friends jealous of my ride with Sumo's all around. Very smooth and stable. Other MBS owners with Sumo's on this forum will agree as well as on the Sprinter forums.

Cheers,

Steering stabilzer

There's not any difference. I installed then both front and back and it did make a Big difference. The thing about steering stabilizers is it keeps the front wheels pointing straight.
