Front suspension spring

Truck Parts | August 14, 2013

SuperSpringsfront-suspension-SumoSpringsSuperSprings’ low-density SumoSprings, now available for Isuzu N-Series’ front suspensions, bolts directly to the truck’s frame to help impede bottoming-out on rough roads. The device is designed to operate like an airbag and to provide smooth load engagement, reduced side-to-side body roll and an overall improved ride.

SumoSprings are composed of a proprietary microcellular urethane engineered to offer a progressive spring rate so that the vehicle’s suspension receives extra support only when needed. Each SumoSpring can be compressed by 80 percent of its original height with full memory rebound.
