Video Transcript for Review of Blue Ox Replacement 1500 lbs TW SwayPro Spring Bars - BXW4008

Hi there. I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today we're gonna take a quick look at these Blue Ox replacement spring bars for your SwayPro weight distribution system. Now this kit is going to include the two spring bars, lift chains, and necessary hardware needed to replace your SwayPro spring bars. Now, one of the really nice things about the SwayPro system is that you can simply switch out your spring bars. So if you get a lighter trailer or a heavier trailer, make sure that your ride is gonna be nice and smooth.

You can simply switch out the spring bars so that it's got the right weight capacity for you, rather than having to get a whole new system. So we do have lots of different spring bar sets that will range from a tongue weight of 200 pounds, up to a tongue weight of 2,000 pounds. So you just need to make sure that you're getting the right set for your setups. Tongue weight of the bars do all look very similar. They are going to have slight thickness differences, but the easiest way to tell which bar set you have, they use a dot system.

So the 350 pound bars are not gonna have a dot. Your 550 pound max tongue weight is gonna have one dot like we have here. So these are our 550 pound max tongue weight. But then on that list there, you can see those dots on the right side. So it goes up to five dots for your 2,000 pound tongue weight rating.

So just make sure you're getting the right one for your setup so that it's not gonna be too rigid, and it's going to engage properly for you. All these sets are going to work with both your older locking pin style pivot tubes. So they've got the divot there on the top. So your locking pin will grab onto that to secure these into your head unit, and they are also going to work with your newer style through pin style locking tube so that you can get that pin passed all the way through there to secure that. So whether you have the older style or the newer, this will work great for you.

These are made here in the USA so you can trust they're made to the high quality standards we've come to know and trust for products that are made here in the US. But more than that, because they are a Blue Ox product you can trust the are gonna fit right into your SwayPro system, and you're not gonna have any issues with it. It's just going to accommodate for either replacing spring bars that you already have, or adjusting your setup for that different tongue weight. So that completes our look for today. Again, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Thanks for watching..

@Acftmd We're glad to hear that!

Didn’t receive the part number that I ordered. I was shipped a lesser capacity part than I had ordered. I am confident that the product quality will be fine once I receive the product that I ordered. For now, I have to deal with the hassles of a time consuming product return process. Customer service appears to be supportive towards correcting the problem.



by:

the product is 5 stars and so is E-Trailers service thank you.



by:

37' camper and it pulls wonderful with these bars forcing it to stay stay in line! The blue ox system is the best! Many years of pulling large trailers and these are simple to use...backing and turning is a breeze!



by:

Love Blue Ox. Best WD hitch in the market. Pair it with etrailers customer service and you have one happy customer.



by:

Service was excellent, good and timely updates. Order arrived in a timely and as scheduled.



by:

I had originally purchased my Blue Ox Sway Pro and Weight Distribution hitch for a smaller travel trailer that we had purchased. when we up graded to a larger trailer I had no need to purchase another hitch, all i had to do was up grade to the heavier sway bars.
The purchase was quick, easy, and I received the bars in the mail quickly.
I am very please with the Blue Ox Sway Pro as it is a quick and simple product to install and use. Hitching and unhitching is a breeze. I am also pleased with with the service I received from etrailer.com.

We are glad we upgraded two levels heavier than the literature suggested. The original spring bars are entirely too light and allow too much sway in slight cross winds. I totally agree with other reviewers that state to go with heavier bars than the recommended rating.



by:

Blue ox should be removed from the market. What a useless and expensive device. I put on the equalizer after having horrible sway problems with blue ox. And it is almost half price. I can't notice any sway with the equalizer. Blue ox was white knuckle driving, especially when semis passed me. If you have a RV trailer, DO NOT BUY BLUE OX!!!



by:

Have been using for a Blue Ox sway weight distribution system for several years and new trailer had heavy tongue weight. And these new bars have been working perfectly for several months. Recommend this system to all.



by:

Brand new weight distribution bars came fast at a great price! I needed 4-dot bars but the trailer came with 3-dot. Using etrailer was an elect choice.

The 1500lb tow bars are great! The are great for my 28 Airstream.



by:

I ordered the item on 5/9/21 and received it on 5/21/21. I did get exactly what I ordered and it was packaged really well. My only issue was the amount of time that it took to receive it. I have ordered from etrailer before and the shipping was good and prompt but I have no idea why this has taken so long especially for an item they said they had in stock.



by:

Purchased a new travel trailer and needed heavier spring bars for my blue ox hitch. They were shipped same day and received two days later.
I have ordered several items in the past few years from e trailer. Staff is very knowledgeable and willing to help. Extremely satisfied with them.



by:

Had great experience with the Blue Ox hitch set but discovered our hitch weight was more than the 1000# bars we had been using so these heavier bars do the trick!



by:

Jena D, thanks for the fast, courteous order, help and shipping. Product works great. Tongue weight was over my 1000lbs bars and needed the 1500lbs bars before trip. Bars arrived two days before I was leaving. Blue Ox SwayPro Bar System exceeded my expectations and the ride and handling is very smooth now.



by:

These do exactly what they're supposed to do when attached to a Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distributing Hitch.

I'm very happy with everything I've bought from eTrailer and Blue Ox. Blue Ox support is also very hellpful and patient. I've contacted them both by phone and email and they were very resposive.



by:

This product is for an upgrade to my Blue Ox weight distribution system. It is exactly as expected. The package shipped in the manufacturer’s original packing, on time, and in perfect condition. The price for the item and cost of shipping was good. I plan on purchasing from Etrailer.com in the future.



by:

I just received my Blue Ox Sway Pro 1,500 lb. replacement bars via UPS. This is my first order with etrailer and I am very pleased. Free shipping and great price! I will be doing business with them again.



by:

The replacement bars were an exact match for my Blue Ox towing hitch. Fast service and friendly/helpful service.



by:

Blue Ox is a great product! Fantastic sway bars that does a great job controlling my 35ft RV from swaying. Ordered over the phone. Staff very helpful! Received product in 2 days!



by:

I 'm moving to a larger camper and needed to upgrade my spring bars. Etrailers website helped me decide what size to get, my tongue weight empty is 880 lbs. I followed their advice and went with heavier bars since adding stuff to camper and truck I would be over 1000 lbs.

  • Troubleshooting Travel Trailer Porpoising While Using Weight Distribution System
    The porpoising is partially due to your tongue weight being far greater than your weight distribution system is rated for so the system isn't able to distribute the weight effectively. The Replacement Spring Bars for Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System - 1,500 lbs TW # BXW4008 will allow you to upgrade your current system to better distribute the total tongue weight. You also want to make sure you calculate any weight behind the rear axle of your truck into that total tongue weight...

  • Blue Ox Weight Distribution Recommendation Tongue Weight of 1,080 lbs
    You are correct in that your current spring bars are not rated high enough to properly distribute the tongue weight of your setup. Going with the # BXW4008 will be the best solution and will allow you the proper distribution of weight. There is no way to know exactly what the tongue weight reduction would be, but your tow vehicle will be able to sit level now.

  • Which Blue Ox Weight Distribution Spring Bars Should be Used for 1,300 lbs Tongue Weight
    You will need to go with the lower rated Blue Ox spring bars # BXW4008 since your tongue weight is 1,300 lbs. The tongue weight range of the bars you bought is for 1,500 to 2,000 lbs and would be very harsh for a 1,300 lb tongue weight setup. The # BXW4008 has a tongue weight range of 1,000 to 1,500 lbs so it would be perfect for what you have.

  • Should Lower Rated Springs Bars Be Upgraded on a Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System
    You are correct. Since your tongue weight falls between the 1,000 lbs - 1,500 lbs range, you would want to switch out your 2 dot spring bars with the 4 dot Replacement Spring Bars for Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System # BXW4008. This will give you the same set-up as the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control # BXW1500. When hooking up the chains, you should start with the 9th chain from the top (opposite the u-bolt). You can then adjust the chains from there to get...

  • Which Blue Ox Spring Bars For Tongue Weight Right Under 1,500 lbs
    If you are under 1,500 lbs of tongue weight you'll be best served going with the lighter rated # BXW4008. Being on the high end of a tongue weight range is much better than being too low for a system's tongue weight range as that would give you a very harsh ride quality.

  • Which Blue Ox SwayPro Spring Bars Should Be Used for a Trailer with a 730lb. Tongue Weight
    The Replacement Spring Bars for Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System # BXW4008 (1,500 lbs.) work for tongue weights between 1,000-1,500 lbs. so if your tongue weight is at that 1,000 lb. mark you will be ok. It may ride stiffer due to the lower weight, but it would be ok. That being said, we do have the Replacement Spring Bars for Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System # BXW4007 (1,000 lbs.) available for your system which work for tongue weights between 750-1,000 lbs.

  • Troubleshooting Vehicle Sag with Blue Ox Sway Pro Weight Distribution Sytem
    The Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control - Clamp On - 10,000 lbs GTW, 1,000 lbs TW # BXW1000 is rated for a total tongue weight (including the loaded trailer tongue and any cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle) between 750 and 1000 lbs. It sounds like a couple of things may be the issue. You may need to go to the 9th link and use the spring bars to support more weight. If that doesn't really change the sag you may need to upgrade the bars to a heavier capacity...

  • Lower Rated Spring Bar Recommendation for Blue Ox Weight Distribution System
    If your loaded tongue weight is 1,500 lbs you are at the very bottom of the tongue weight range for the Blue Ox weight distribution system part # BXW2000 which has a range of 1,500 to 2,000 lbs. This will give you a harsh ride quality like you have. The best option would be to go with a lower rated bar. The Sway Pro systems from the highest to the lowest rated all use the same weight distribution head. To change the weight rating of the system, you'd simply swap out the spring bars. So...

  • Recommended Blue Ox Weight Distribution Spring Bars for 1,000+ Pound Tongue Weight
    If you are needing replacement spring bars for your Blue Ox Weight Distribution System, I recommend going with the 1,500 Pound Spring Bars # BXW4008. This will provide you with a tongue weight capacity range of 1,000 to 1,500 pounds, so even when you are on the low end of your potential tongue weights, the system will still work nicely and be within its operating range. This particular kit includes 2 spring bars, lift chains and the necessary hardware. I have attached a short video demonstration...

For your 10,000 lb GVWR trailer, what you will need are the following: - Replacement Spring Bars for Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System # BXW4008 These spring bars are rated for total tongue weights between 1,000 lbs and 1,500 lbs, an since a trailer's loaded tongue weight will be in the range of 10% to 15%...

  • Upgraded Spring Bars for Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System for Towing 11,000lb Trailer
    So you're looking for higher rated spring bars for a Blue Ox SwayPro weight distributing system, is that correct? The spring bars you use will depend on the fully loaded tongue weight of the trailer. The weight of any cargo carried behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle should be included as tongue weight. I'll link you to an FAQ article that explains how to determine your actual trailer tongue weight. The highest rated spring bars Blue Ox offers are rated for 15,000lbs towing, 1,500lbs...

  • Should Blue Ox 1,000 Pound WD System be Upgraded for Trailer with 1,000 Pound Tongue Weight
    If your trailer's loaded tongue weight is at 1,000 pounds I do recommend upgrading your system by replacing the spring bars with the 1,500 pound # BXW4008. This will be a simple swap and they will work with the existing head on your Blue Ox System. It's important to keep in mind that your total tongue weight also includes any added cargo weight you have stored behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle.

This figure also includes the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. I attached a help article on determining tongue weight for you to check out as well.

    I would recommend using the Replacement Spring Bars for Blue Ox SwayPro # BXW4008 1,000-1,500 tongue weight bars. If you're already seeing close to 1000lbs of tongue weight as it is, I would only imagine when traveling that number will start to increase. If you don't have the SwayPro system let me know what you do have and I will make a recommendation based on your hitch.

  • Can You Use Spring Bars Rated For 1,000 lbs With Bars Rated For 1,500lbs
    The 3 dimples on the Replacement Spring Bars for Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System # BXW4008 indicate they are rated for up to 1,000lbs total tongue weight, and the 4 dimples mean they are rated for up to 1,500lbs. That being said you can not mix these because they would need to be matching, as well as they are sold in pairs. If you wanted to swap your 3 dot bars rated at 1,000lbs # BXW4007 with 4 dot bars # BXW4008 rated at 1,500lbs, you'd have to change both bars.

  • Can Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution Upgrade to 1,500 lb Spring Bars
    Thanks so much for that good info, and one of the nice things about the Blue Ox SwayPro weight distribution hitches is that when you upgrade your trailer to something heavier (or lighter) you can simply swap out the spring bars to ones with the right rating, and you're set. So you don't have to purchase anything else for the system, you can just add the spring bars. Since loaded tongue weight rating is going to be in the range of 12 percent, you will want to go with the SwayPro bars rated...

  • Can Existing 750 lb Capacity Spring Bars on Blue Ox SwayPro Be Swapped for 1000 lb Capacity Bars?
    Assuming you currently have a Blue Ox SwayPro system such as part # BXW0750, you can indeed swap out your existing spring bars and replace them with the # BXW4007 1000 lb capacity spring bars. You'll retain your existing trunnions, and will simply remove the retaining clip that holds your existing bars in the trunnions, slide them out and replace them with the higher-rated spring bars. They will be fully compatible with an existing SwayPro weight distribution kit.

    If your actual loaded tongue weight is 1000-lbs and you're using system # BXW1000 then you may simply be overloading it. The spring bars in this system work over a TW range from 750 to 1000-lbs. This particular system is ideally suited to a TW of 850 to 900-lbs.

This total TW needs to include the weight...

  • Can Regular Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution be Used on Trailer with Underslung Coupler
    If you now have a trailer that has an underslung coupler then yes, you will need to use the SwayPro for an underslung coupler instead of the current part # BXW1000 that you are using. To make your current system compatible with an underslung system all you have to do is swap out the head to the underslung option using part # BXW4012. This is because the pitch that those bars connect to the head unit changes to accommodate the lower coupler. I confirmed this with my contact at Blue Ox. When...

    Yes, you'll want to use larger bars than the ones that came on your 3.5K Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control # BXW0350. If all of your cargo will be in your trailer and you can keep the tongue weight at about 942 lbs once it's loaded then the 1K Spring Bars # BXW4007 are the correct replacements for you. If you will have up to 60 lbs of cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle though that will count as tongue weight as well and you'll need to use the 1.5K Spring Bars...

  • How To Choose Correct Weight Springs Bars for Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution
    The correct way to select the right Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution is based on the tongue weight of the loaded trailer plus any gear behind the rear axle in the tow vehicle. The two dot bars part # BXW4006 are rated for up to 750 lbs, the three dot bars part # BXW4007 are rated for up to 1,000 lbs and the four dot bars part # BXW4008 are rated up to 1,500 lbs. It's best to be just a bit under the weight capacity but so long as you are not exceeding this you'll be fine.
