The answer depends on your definition of helper spring. If you think a helper spring is an “add-a-leaf” or “overload spring”, then the answer is no. Learn what a helper spring is in the learn more section of our site. By simple definition, yes, SuperSprings are helper springs in that they do help the original suspension components of your vehicle – and more!

The different SumoSprings colors identify their density. SumoSprings come in three different densities: -40, -47, and -54. Blue SumoSprings are -40, black SumoSprings are -47, and yellow SumoSprings are -54.

Trailer SumoSprings are a SumoSprings Solo air spring mounted to trailer leaf spring assemblies using unique steel brackets. The steel brackets are designed and manufactured by SuperSprings International, Inc. Their genius is in their simplicity, hugging the leaf spring assembly to hold the SumoSprings in place. As the frame lowers from weight or sway, the SumoSprings engage the frame, bearing some of the weight, limiting the load on the leaf springs.

Coil SumoSprings can be used on any application with a coil spring. There is no way to give an exact capacity for every application. We have tested Coil SumoSprings on trucks, passenger vans, sedans, utility vehicles, and more. From these tests, we have determined Coil SumoSprings consistently increase the capacity of the coil spring by 15% to 30%.

Yes and no. SuperStops are the same as contact pads in that they replace and bolt in the same place as contact pads. They are not the same in design and function. Contact pads are typically thin pieces of rubber. SuperSway-Stops are a tall piece of micro-cellular urethane. SuperSilent-Stops are a damping piece of urethane. Contact pads are more than likely not engaged because of their thin design, or engaged and creating excessive noise. SuperStops are designed to be engaged, allowing your top overload spring to do the work it was installed to do.

Some SuperCoils are intended to lift your truck. Depending on the application, this is typically an inch or two. The lift is a functional lift, to provide additional load support for your vehicle. Other SuperCoils are designed to be at stock ride height. In the interactive Application Guide, check the notes to determine whether or not your particular application has a lift.

Those who install more than one set of SuperSprings a year should consider purchasing installation tools. Our tools can cut installation times down to a few minutes! These tools will increase safety and reduce the chances of any injuries caused from the use of inadequate or inappropriate tools.
