Today we're going to be taking a look at the replacement spring bars for the Blue Ox Swaypro weight distribution systems. This kit's going to come with everything you need to replace your Swaypro spring bars. These bars will flex appropriately, which is going to offer a nice controlled, even ride. These bars have a tongue weight rating 1,000 to 1,500 pounds. You can use these bars as a direct replacement. Because these bars are interchangeable with other Blue Ox spring bars, you can also use them to change the tongue weight capacity of your system.

This kit includes two spring bars, lift chains, and the necessary hardware. The bars are made from a steel construction and feature a powder coated finish, which is going to do a great job at resisting resting corrosion. Nice tapered design, very strong and durable. This end right here has a connection point on it, that engages in the weight distribution head and locks into place, and they're made right here in the USA. That's going to do it for today's look at the replacement spring bars for the Blue Ox Swaypro weight distribution systems.

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!!! 477966

Comments

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.

Recently purchased a new TT and needed to upgrade the spring bars on my Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System for the added tongue weight. New spring bars arrived on time and packaged well. I haven't had a chance to use them yet, but have no doubt that they will perform as advertised. 282866

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! 282160

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. 273309

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. 261961

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. 223112

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.

  • How to Determine the Correct Replacement Springs Bars for a Blue Ox Weight Distribution System
  • The Replacement Spring Bars for Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System part # BXW4008 are best suited for a towing setup with a total tongue weight (TTW) between 1,000 and 1,500 lbs. The TTW is calculated by adding the loaded ready to tow tongue weight of the trailer by an weight stored behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. As long as these two things do not exceed 1,500 lbs then the above spring bars will work well for you. However, if the TTW of your towing setup exceeds 1,500...

  • How To Determine Blue Ox Spring Bar Weight Capacity
  • Blue Ox has an easy system for determining the weight capacity of your spring bars, whereas other companies may use measurements or printed capacity to assist. With Blue Ox, there is a 5 dimple system: No dimples means it is rated for up to 350 lbs total tongue weight. One dimple means it is rated for up to 550 lbs. Two dimples indicates up to 750 lbs. Three dimples indicates up to 1,000 lbs. Four dimples indicates up to 1,500 lbs tongue weight. Five dimples indicates up to 2,000 lbs...

  • When To Use Suspension Enhancements With Weight Distribution On A 2013 Ram 1500
  • I understand your confusion due to the various opinions out there on this subject. I will certainly do my best to clear things up for you. If you need any further clarification, please don't hesitate to ask. In regards to the use of suspension enhancements with a weight distribution system, I can say that a properly installed and rated weight distribution system will not require any further suspension enhancements. If you are still experiencing squat with your current system, I recommend...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Clamp-On Weight Distribution System Needed for a Variety of Trailer Sizes
  • We do have a weight distribution (WD) system that will fit your various trailer size needs, but if your current trailer hitch/ball mount is already hitting the ground during some of the driveways you have to turn in to I'm not sure if adding a WD system to the mix is a good idea. The shank and head unit will hit the ground and if your driveways are steep enough I doubt the bars are meant to flex that much. If you still need the WD system then the Blue Ox SwayPro systems have clamp-on...

  • 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....

  • 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,...

  • Recommended Replacement Spring Bars for Blue Ox Sway Pro Weight Distribution System
  • 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. Weight distribution spring bars like those on your Blue Ox Sway Pro need to be rated so that the fully-loaded trailer tongue weight (TW) falls near the middle of their operating range. This total TW needs to include the weight...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for Towing Car Hauler with Alternating Loads
  • Using the same weight distribution system with such a drastic difference in the amount of weight you're towing can be an issue. If your load is too heavy for the system then it won't be able to do its job, go too light and it will make your trailer ride rough. The Reese Steadi-Flex you mentioned, part # RP66560, is certainly too heavy when your trailer is on the light side and may not even be enough when fully loaded. Instead I recommend using a system that you can convert based on your...

  • Are Long or Short Torsion Arms Better for a Weight Distribution System
  • The reason long bars on weight distribution (WD) systems, like the Strait-Line # RP66074, are so popular is because that means the clamps for the trailer frame will sit about 30" away from the coupler. Typically this avoids items that sit on the tongue, like propane tanks. Short arms are a great substitute for when things like propane tanks get in the way. There really is no advantage or disadvantage of using long or short arms other than the location of other things on the tongue of...

  • Spring Bar Recommendation for Blue Ox Weight Distribution System with Over 1,000 lbs Tongue Weight
  • The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of the setup when it is loaded and ready to tow. 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. You will want the loaded tongue weight of your setup to fall right in the middle of the tongue weight range of the system you use. Since you will be over 1,000 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...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution And Adjustable Shank For 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500
  • From my research I found the Timber Ridge 250 RDS has a dry weight of 6,700 lbs and a maximum weight of 8,500 lbs. I also found the Airstream has a maximuim weight of 3,500 lbs. For a weight distribution system you will want to know the tongue weight. The tongue weight is typically about 10 to 15 percent of the gross towing weight which would mean for the Airstream it would be between 350 and 525 lbs, and for the 250 RDS the tongue weight would be between 850 and 1275 lbs. This weight...

  • How to Determine the Correct Weight Distribution System
  • It is possible you may not have the correctly rated spring bars with your Blue Ox weight distribution system which is why sway is still occuring so you will want to verify the weight you need. To do this you will need to know your total tongue weight (TTW), which is the tongue weight of your fully loaded and ready to go trailer plus the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. The tongue weight is typically between 10% and 15% of your trailer's GVWR but you'll...

  • 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 along with your 1,000 pound trailer tongue weight would put you comfortably within...

  • Troubleshooting Vehicle Sag with Blue Ox Sway Pro Weight Distribution Sytem

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...
