Airbags and SumoSprings are types of air springs. The main difference between an airbag and SumoSprings is how the air is captured/controlled. With a traditional air bag, a compressor with hoses and valves is used to fill up the balloon inside of the airbag. This requires maintenance so the air bag does not crack and/or leak. The air inside of SumoSprings is captured in millions of air pockets inside the micro-cellular urethane material. You could drill a hole through SumoSprings and they would still work.
The capacity of SumoSprings varies depending on the height, diameter, and density of the spring. SumoSprings are rated by how many pounds of pressure it takes to compress the spring down to 50% of its original body height. You can view a SumoSprings capacity in the Product Guide, Application Guide, or in the Official SuperSprings Online Shop product additional information tab.
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. Scroll down to learn more about what color/density is right for you.
Both! SumoSprings are used for too many applications and benefits to list. Because of their progressive spring rate, and cushion like urethane material, SumoSprings absolutely increase ride comfort. SumoSprings are also springs! Meaning, they will help carry loads. Without SumoSprings, your original equipment carries 100% of the load. SumoSprings work in conjunction with your original equipment to share the load, helping level out sag and reduce wear and tear on your original equipment.
Does your truck/van have rear leaf springs? Do you regularly use your truck/van to carry heavy loads? Is your truck/van setup with a service body? Is your vehicle a crane truck, wrecker truck, tow truck, or other work industry truck carrying a lot of weight? Are you experiencing excessive rear-end sag negatively effecting drive-ability? Does your truck/van have noticeable body roll and poor handling while unloaded or loaded? If so, it sounds like SuperSprings are a great match. Are you an R.V. owner? Do you own a truck/van used for recreational purposes such as towing a boat? Are you looking for a smoother ride and want to dampen road noise and shock? Is your rear suspension not a leaf spring pack? Do you take your vehicle over rough terrain or off-road? If so, it sounds like you should check out SumoSprings.


Blue -40

Blue -40 density captures more air in the millions of micro-cellular bubbles, creating an air spring suitable for light and medium duty applications.


Black -47

Black -47 density balances the amount of urethane and air bubbles to create an air spring suitable for light, medium, and heavy duty applications.


Yellow -54

Yellow -54 density traps a smaller amount of air in the air spaces creating a stronger air spring suitable for medium and heavy duty applications.

Ride Comfort

SumoSprings absorb harsh bumps and jolts to provide a smooth ride over uneven surfaces, highway joints, and other rough terrain.

Driver Control

By reducing harsh movements, SumoSprings give drivers better control of their vehicle. This increases safety and makes for more comfortable travel.

Stabilizing

SumoSprings have a progressive spring rate. They start to compress smoothly with less resistance and provide greater resistance as they compress further.

Solution

SumoSprings increase comfort and control, help stabilize sway, and level loads. This makes SumoSprings a unique and complete suspension solution.

Safe. Supportive. Simply Super.

SumoSprings enhance vehicle safety by creating greater ride control and absorbing harsh movements caused by: rough road conditions, front end dip during sudden braking, side-to-side sway, bumps, highway joints, and more. They are an enhancement to your suspension, supporting not only the existing suspension components but reducing wear and tear on other vehicle components. SumoSprings are simply “super.”
