Front SumoSprings (left) have a one-piece design. Springs are made of proprietary (and patented) microcellular urethane and are maintenance-free. The springs can compress up to 80 percent of the original height and will rebound fully. Two-piece configuration of the rear SumoSprings (right) allows for unlimited travel, a more progressive spring rate and better damping abilities. The blue kit used for the Ram test trucks is the most popular for towing trailers.
