Lifting the Fuse - Sumo Spring Option

Editors note:  This is a post from Arlene Cassels who has a 2017 Winnebago Fuse and is a member of the Facebook group.   She decided to lift her Fuse using Sumo Springs and was nice enough to share her experience.  This was already posted in the Facebook group.  Please comment in the Facebook Winnebago Owners Group so Arlene can respond to everyone directly:

Chapter 3, and hopefully our last chapter on raising our rear end on our 2016 Fuse with a T35 Chassis.  Took it in to Straight Line Suspension on Main in Mesa, AZ.  They looked at it and said the Sumo Springs would work.

Ordered them and installed.  This raised our rear end from 26 1/8" to 28". We can see the difference.

The frame used to ride low over the tires. Now rides just above.

They used Part No. SSR-121-54, if that will help.

Incidently, they said with the previous height, when we hit any bump, our left tire was hitting the fenderwell - not good! See pictures. Hopefully this will help some other owners.
