Default Sumo Springs on a roadtrek 210 popular

Hello all,

So i'm looking to raise my new C210P up 1-2" because of the low clearance and i was told that installing sumo springs could give it the lift and also reduce tipping and make it a better all around drive.

does anyone have experience with this? or do any of you know what kind of sumo springs to look for and where to get them?

thanks

Try Sumo or lift. When you search do several combinations.

Personally, my new favorite for the back of a Chevy is the latest AirLift air bags that have a Sumo spring type overload inside them. You can raise the van with air bag part without getting a lot stiffer ride and still have a good bump stop inside the bag for the big bumps and dips.

For the front a spring change really is the best way. Moog makes a spring that should give you the amount you are looking for.

For the sway and control, a big rear sway bar is a very nice addition. Hellwig makes one that fits if you don't have a generator, and Roadmaster has on the will fit if it does have a generator.

All of these options have been covered extensively in several threads here.
