I'll have to check mine. I had a shop install them this past June, and I told the tech which set is front/rear. He was going to install them the reverse way. This was the 2nd time I brought the rig in -- I had ordered the shocks on Amazon, and quickly checked the boxes when they arrived. I saw the suffix number 18 on 1 box, and 19 on another. Good, right? Nope. When I dropped the rig off with the shocks the 1st time, I got a call a while later, saying the tech found 3 18s and 1 19 in the package. I had to pick the rig up, return the wrong shock and order a new one on Amazon. Lesson learned: don't assume the stock picker selects the right parts from the warehouse inventory. Check each piece when received.

I install them on mines but before I did I made sure that I didn't install them incorrectly, I think that I watch this same video.

You do quads on back? We did not, but have Sumos in back.

No sir I didn't do the quads, but I did though about it those my next mods is going to be the Sumo Spring I have the front in my cart on Amazon and I will be doing the rear soon after or if the people give me some Amazon gift cards I will get both.


I would be interesting to hear how did the rear Sumo install go for you, did you remove the rear wheel to do them? I'm going to try not to remove the rear wheel, I went to HomeDepot the other day and bought a right angle drill motor so I can get behind the wheel.

Still waiting on getting back to dealer to fix. They had sewer line break, keep delaying me from bringing in.

Here are pics of the cluster_ _ _ _

Notice the Roadmaster aux rear facing sway bar. Highly recommend. Has factory 2 front/rear sway bars, new in 2021 F53s. Rear trac bar/Sumos all around installed too.

Once I get Konis put on right, last upgrade will be radius rods.

Look good, now on the Roadmaster sway bar how hard was it to install I thought about installing this also and also have you install the Sumo Spring and did you remove the rear tires?

I have the front Sumo Spring but I can't install them because the dealership still have it, my plan is to get the ones for the rear, hopefully by the summer time.

On my setup with the Roadmaster Sway Bar I have to take off that bottom four bolts to put on that one plate for it, I have a powerful torque motor but I'm not sure what to retorque those four bolts to.

It looks like that your Roadmaster Sway Bar is connected differently than the one for the one that goes on mines. Can you take more pics?

Not sure. It was installed with rear trac bar by the dealer back in 2021.

Finally got it back in for service for them to fix the Koni’s on Monday. Dealer was convinced their Sr. Tech had them installed right, had to send pics. Customer is always right, ha!

Okay thank you, do you have the Sumo Spring installed? I would love to see pics, this is going to be the first install when I get my back, I have the front but need to buy the rear, all I can say, they are not giving them away. A few times I thought about just installing Timbern in the rear because they are cheaper and easier to install but I will probably just bite the bullet and go with the Sumo in the rear.

Hey big,
You might want to check with someone who has your rig and how much improvement rear sumos had. For my vision 29f (same as alante), the fronts made a huge difference and the rears were only a slight improvement (I did fronts first). Since the rears were about 6 or 700 and then another 1500 for install, I would not have done them again. The fronts, I was able to Install myself in about an hour and was well worth the money. My $.02

Agree above. Do in increments. I have the 2021 with V8 18k GVWR.

Supersteer folks may suggest quad Koni’s in rear and skip Sumos. Some are ok with just dual Koni’s.

Mine handles great around corners and highway corner ramps.

Okay, mines have been at the dealer since November 10, the dealer just emailed me and said that it have been a while he knew but he just got the okay to replaces the parts from Jayco, so it will be another month.

I have heard that also, some just do the front and didn't need to do the rear but before I do the rear I will see what if I need to do the rear, but looking at the rear bump stop I kind of want something else with the oem bump stop.
