SumoSprings Solo suspension applications are designed to enhance ride, reduce body roll and eliminate sudden bottoming out on a full range of Ford Transit commercial vans, wagons, cutaways and chassis cabs.
The Solos feature a simple, one-piece design made of a proprietary microcellular urethane. The applications replace the Transit’s shorter factory bump stop and are installed using existing mounting holes in the frame.
The springs function like airbags, filling the gap between a vehicle’s axle and frame but SuperSprings says they won’t leak and require no compressor, lines or maintenance. Also, the SumoSprings Solo can be installed with in-house, standard tools.
The SumoSprings Solo comes in three different kits to ensure compatibility with any of the Transit’s variety of configurations which range from regular wheelbase van to an extended length, high-roof wagon and include chassis cab and cutaway models. Users can also select one of two urethane densities for each kit, depending on the vehicle’s intended use.
“The Transit can be adapted for many jobs and we have an optimal SumoSprings Solo setup for each one,” says Mike Visser, president of SuperSprings International. “The softer urethane density is good for light-duty ride control while heavy-duty hauling requires a more dense robust urethane.”
