Install sumo springs in Tucson?

Any recommendations for where to get sumo springs installed on my Solera in Tucson? (Mercedes Sprinter 3500)

Thanks,
Steve

Depends, to some degree, on which version of the Sumo Springs you're installing. I installed the Solos, part # SSR-325-47, myself...here in Tucson. If you're looking at the Maxim, part # SSR-326-47-1, they look to be more involved. I don't know about the Sumos for the front - part # SSF-106-40, but they also look a bit more involved.

Installation of the Solos is pretty easy. Jack up the RV so the wheels are hanging (you may want to use jack stands...) then slide out the old bump stops and jam in the new ones. I think the only tool I needed beyond the jack was a screw driver to pry out the old one and jam in the new one.

In any case, I'd think any reasonable automotive place would be able to do it if they've got appropriate jacks. I had some work done at TCI Tire Center (W Glenn). They're mostly a truck tire place, so they have the right equipment. I don't know if they'd do this type of installation, but it would be worth a call.

YMMV

Dave

Freedom RV installed my 5th wheel hitch and did a real nice clean job. They have a pretty nice service department. Freedom RV Tucson, AZ RV Dealer

I installed #SSR-338-47 myself. You can do it yourself. As Dave told, we need jack stands(at least 21" lifted height) and screw driver or small pry bar. Good luck!

They were very east to install. I used my rear stabilizer jacks with a 4x4 and a screwdriver to pry with. Took about 15 minutes total.They took quite a bit of sway out of my rig.

I would not recommend the more aggressive sumo springs that bolt on. I installed them and the bilstein shocks now the ride is very rough. I will be removing the sumo's and replacing with the less aggressive type that just slide in.
