I forgot to mention that I also have the upgraded Bielstein shocks on all four corners.

The biggest difference in a safer riding feeling (aka reduction of white knuckles) I observed after the installation of the rear track bar.

The chp would add some much needed side to side sway, but I haven't done it.

On the 22 and 24000 lb chassis super spring suggests maxim not solos. Before you buy talk with the company for good advice. And I know there is a big difference in price but you get what you pay for.

E-trailer recommended them, too. I just wonder whether the would be a little stiff for my 16,000 chassis?

From what super spring told me 22 and up maxim and 20 and down solo. That is not saying the solo won't help a 22 or 24 chassis but they are not going to do the same job the maxim will. They also said the maxim seems to be to stiff for the lighter chassis.

And that is the problem. The parts finder of Super Spring brings me to the maxim, and E-trailer seem to use the same parts finder, because they also say I should get a maxim.

My motorhome is very light loaded, it is only the dog and I who occupy it. Most of the time we do not carry water with us, and not much luggage or food supplies either. The heaviest individual component is my moped scooter on the back and that weights 200 lbs only.
With other words, my rig is pretty light weight, and I do not want helper springs installed that are to hard.
I mainly want to control the hard bouncing of the front section when it hits a pot hole or other pavement problems.

The newly installed Bielstein shocks in combination with steer safe and the CHF and the rear Blue Ox track bar provide me with a pretty stable ride, it is just the hard hits that I don't like much.

It was weird and yes now maxim is the only one they suggest ... But I swear at one point it showed the solo as well. I went for the solo because 1. Bang for the buck 2. Super easy diy install

Good Sumo Spring Review

Don't know if anyone follows RV Blogs, but I found this website and Youtube channel both entertaining and informative (note - not mine).

Specifically related to this discussion is the detailed report along with video of the Sumo Springs installation and road test.

Here's the link:

Rvlove Suspension Upgrade


I have a Southwind 32VS on a Workhorse chassis that rides fairly well, but would like to eliminate some of the sway, so Sumo Springs are on my list.
