Front or rear?

I am confused by this post. When I shop on-line, I get Sumos for many different vehicles with nothing specific to my MBS 2401 R. Then, there are Sumo-like non-air types.

Do these go on the front or rear, and are the Sumo springs the only recommended ones to get?

Micro-cellular Urethane

I think that I found my answer at eTrailer.com. They have the Micro-cellular Urethane from Super Springs (Sumo) for the Sprinter 3500 for $245. Foam blocks for that much money?

Is that what is being talked about?

Yes. I added them to my truck. They are very easy to install yourself (if you want) and make a big difference.

Yes- that's them. I paid the price for my tundra and do not regret. I like the no maintenance unlike airbags.

I think they really increase stability of the Mercedes chassis, especially in crosswinds or when a semi goes by

Here's a post from a while ago. It lists the sumo springs products which are relevant to most of our Sprinters and provides links to manufacturer product info:

I bought mine (SSR-338-47) from Amazon for $210 and received them on May 10th. Installed them myself in about 30 minutes and promptly drove up and over a rather curvy mountain pass the following weekend. I thought it was an exceptional performance upgrade and really felt like the coach was much more stable, especially in cornering and inclement weather (wind) without making the ride overly stiff.

Yes, there is some confusion as SuperSprings has three different products. Go to the following YouTube video, and all three are explained. Most people use the bump-stop helpers. They are the least expensive, easiest to install, and provide a great deal of support and ride improvement. The others are more for commercial use or instances where you need A LOT of assistance.
