Sumo springs

Has anyone bought or used the sumo springs on their rigs instead of air bags? I checked them out on my buddies 2011 cummins and they seem to work same as air bags but require no maintance or adjusting. Plus when your driving without a load its like there not there. What you guys think?

I ordered a set of the sumo springs yesterday. I talked to the president of the company and got a good discount!
I picked these over the air bags because they require no maintance.

I am curious how they work out as well. I am leaning air bag route...but I don't tow often. So, if this helped keep it level when I do tow, it may make a lot of sense...especially if the price is right.

How much are they?

I'm making a 960 mile trip towing a 25' goose neck flatbed on Tues haulling some metal sheeting. I'll post back how it rides with the sumo springs.

And price depends which setup you need.
Since I have a b&w hitch I needed the set that replaces the rubber bumper stop just to the inside of the leaf springs. Which are $233

If you don't have a 5th wheel or b&w hitch you can get the set that installs within the leaf springs which are about $560 or so.

If interested in which set you might need. Call sumo springs co. And ask for Mike. He's the president of the company.

Let us know how you like them! Those would be nicer not having to adjust air pressure all the time
