Upgraded SumoSprings for Sprinter 2500

SuperSprings Product Bulletin 16 Comments

SuperSprings International (Carpinteria, California) announced new upgraded rear SumoSprings for Sprinter 2500 van and RV applications. Part number SSR-329-47 supersedes part number SSR-325-47. The ease of installation for the new part number is identical to the previous version. What has been upgraded is 50% more of SumoSprings’ patented micro-cellular urethane material is used for the new SumoSprings. This provides additional support and sway reduction, particularly for heavily loaded RV’s and vans. The added material increases the amount of energy the SumoSprings can absorb and dissipate, increasing ride comfort and driver control.

    Now for the rear springs I dont see any color code ??? witch model fits for light load ?

    I am looking for comfort by adding theses springs

    1. Hi John,

      Correct, the SSF-106-40 (blue) are for a lighter load capacity. For the rear, we recomend going with the SSR-329-47 which are designed to improve overall driver control and ride comfort. Please see below for a direct links to the products in our store.

      As I told you in my previous message, my van as a very light load on it

      So it does not do any improvement because there is a 1 inch gap before touching the axe

      What ca you do to solve the problem !!!

      1. Hello John,

        My name is Peter. First off, thank you for trying SumoSprings out! Now, regarding your question, every application is unique, so this does happen from time to time. The Sumosprings Solo kit is designed to leave anywhere from 1/4 of an inch to an inch of clearance between the SumoSprings, and the nearest contact point. The amount of clearance varies, but may be closer to that one inch mark on lighter applications (as you’ve seen with yours). We do have a couple other options available for a 2015 Sprinter 2500 2WD, but in order to recommend the best possible option, is there any way you’d be able to email me a picture of the current set-up? Preferably with the SumoSprings installed. My email is [email protected].

        Once again, thanks for trying SumoSprings, and for contacting us. I look forward to hearing back from you.

  2. Hello there, I own a 2016 Sprinter 2500 passenger van, I have recently replaced ball joints, struts and shocks and fitted Michelin M+S tires.
    However, my van rides hard on the front end, especially over bridge expansion joints and uneven pavement.
    I want to buy the best ride improvement possible. i typically carry 5 or 6 people at most.
    Any ideas?

  3. We own a 2016 Winnebago View Sprinter diesel. The actual Chassis is a 2015 Sprinter. We have developed some sway as things age. It is now noticeably swaying when parked and in windy / highway situations. Exactly what upgrade would you suggest without overkill. Thanks for your time.

    1. Hi Mike,

      Let’s get that sway taken care of! We have a wide range of part numbers that can help your situation. However, the model of the Sprinter will tell us exactly which SumoSprings part numbers we should be talking about. Can you answer these two questions?

      Is your Sprinter a 2500 or 3500 model?
      Is your Sprinter 4×2 or 4×4?

      Thanks again Mike!

  4. Hello, I have a 2011 Solera Freightliner 3500 motohome and installed the SSR-338-47. Would the SSR-338-54 or SSA11 work better for body roll on the motorhome?

    Thanks

    1. Hi John,

      If you’re looking to keep one of our suspension solutions, I recommend the SSR-338-54. You might also want to look into a Hellwig helper-spring, or a forward-facing sway bar on the rear axle (both of which we do not offer). The SumoSprings are designed to act as more of a supplement, rather than fully control the suspension. We typically only recommend the SSA11 SuperSprings on a commercial application, as this kit would give lift but not really help with the body roll.

  5. Hello, We have a 2006 Sprinter Conversion van. We love our van, however, the vibration during driving on pavement has become unbearable. We feel the vibration through the floor under our feet and through the dash/steering wheel while driving. It has come to the point of wanting to sell it if we cannot find a way to reduce vibration. Not to mention that gravel roads are MISERABLE! Any ideas? Thank you

    1. Hi Kay,

      We definitely have some ideas. Hopefully we can lessen your misery and help you Journey Better! Can you please let me know if your Sprinter is a 2500 or 3500? Also, 4×2 or 4×4? Thanks Kay!
