Its heavy duty and fit however the metal wasn't cleaned good before manufactured. Ot had large chunks of paint coming off that was powder coated over. I didn't buy it because of its looks but one would think it would be cleaned before welding and powder coated. Not etrailers fault because it was built in China according to the box. 654350

I chose this one because it didn't stick out as far as the others but still had sufficient drop for my 5" lift on the Avalanche with a trunion style WD hitch (higher than bar). It's mounted on the 2nd and 3rd lower holes and I chopped off the bottom one to prevent dragging. Works great! 572521

Ask the Experts about this Curt Accessories and Parts

  • Can Different Brand Shanks be Used with Most Weight Distribution Systems
    Yes, almost all weight distribution manufacturers use the same dimensions between the shank holes which means that they can all use each others shanks if needed. The Curt shanks are very popular replacements as they offer quite a bit of drop and their prices are pretty good. The part # C17123 is a very popular option.

  • Curt Drop Weight Distribution Shank Recommendation for 2004 Dodge Ram 2500
    Most weight distribution shanks have the dimensions yours has with the 3/4 inch holes and 1/1-4 inches between the holes measured on center. The Curt shank # C17123 has a drop of 9-1/2 inches for round bar systems and a drop of 7-1/2 inches for the trunnion system. For even more drop the part # C17124 would give you up to 13-1/2 inches of drop.

  • Drop Shank for Weight Distribution for 2003 Ford F-250 with 4 inch Lift
    For what you have the Curt shank part # C17123 is going to be your best option. It can do a drop of up to 6-1/4 inches and has a 10 hole adjustment range. To determine the rise/drop you'd need you'd need to measure your coupler from bottom lip to ground on trailer when level and then from top of the hitch opening to the ground. The difference there is the drop you'd need. This shank fits all of the standard weight distribution shanks as well.

  • Recommendation For Weight Distribution Shank With Maximum Height Of 12-1/2 Inches
    There are shanks like the Curt Weight Distribution Shank, Item # C17123, with a maximum length of 12-1/2 inches but they are not exactly the same. The Fastway e2 Weight Distribution Shank, Item # FA92-02-4214, is one of those that is similar and has a maximum height of 11-1/2 inches. Other options are available and I am attaching a link to our available inventory for you to check out.

  • Can Equalizer Weight Distribution System be Used with Curt Weight Distribution Shank
    The Curt weight distribution shank part # C17123 that you referenced is confirmed to fit with Equalizer weight distribution systems. It will work with the 14k Equalizer part # EQ37141ET you are interested in which can be used with a hitch reducer.

  • How to Determine the Correct Rise or Drop Needed for a Weight Distribution Shank
    If you go over the options, see link, ahead of time then you will not have to worry about returning a shank to get a different one! Basically, you will need to determine what rise or drop you will need in order to tow the trailer level and then get a shank that has the proper amount of rise or drop. I have included a link to an FAQ article that covers ball mounts but the same technique is used to determine the rise or drop needed for a weight distribution shank. Shanks for the Blue...

  • Will a Curt Shank Work with a Reese Weight Distribution System
    Yes, the Curt weight distribution shank # C17123 can be used with a Reese weight distribution head. Both have 3/4 inch diameter holes spaced 1-1/4 inches apart on center.

  • How To Choose Adjustable Weight Distribution Shank
    The shank you choose would depend on the difference between the height of the trailer coupler and the height of the towing vehicle receiver. Park the trailer and the towing vehicle on level pavement. You then need to measure the distance form the top of the receiver opening to the ground. Then measure the distance from the bottom of the trailer coupler to the ground. If the towing vehicle receiver height is greater, you a ball mount with a drop. If the trailer coupler height is...

  • Dimensions of the Curt Welded Weight Distribution Shank # C17123
    Since manufacturers do not test their products together I don't necessarily know if they are compatible (although most shanks are universal), but I can give you the information that you need to do some measuring on your end. The Curt Welded Weight Distribution Shank # C17123 has holes that are spaced 1-1/4" apart on center and the shank itself is 2" x 2" both on the end that inserts into your hitch receiver on your 2011 GMC Yukon Denali and on the end that connects to the WD system....

  • Weight Distribution Shank Recommendation for Needing Up to 6-1/4 inch Drop
    The great thing about weight distribution shanks is that basically all manufacturers make them to the same spec so they are interchangeable with other brands. The best option we have that would cover the range you need is the Curt weight distribution shank part # C17123 which can do a drop up to 6-1/4 inch and since it has holes all along the vertical portion of the shank you can basically do anything between that and zero drop. Rise/drop is measured from the top of the hitch opening...

  • Are Shanks from Different Weight Distribution Systems Interchangeable
    The shank parts of most weight distribution hitches use standardized hole sizing and spacing so the shank from one brand of WD system will work with the head assembly from another brand. You do want to verify though that the weight capacities are the same. If your Pro Series shank were to be, just for example, rated for 1200-lbs of tongue weight (TW) such as # 63911, but your new system has a higher weight rating then you'd need to get another shank of the appropriate weight capacity.

  • Shank Recommendation for a Curt Weight Distribution System to Allow for Additional Drop
    You want to set the ball height adjustment so that the trailer is being towed as level as possible. Sometimes with weight distribution systems the included shank does not provide enough drop to allow this so then you would need to get a shank that allows for more drop. The part # C17123 will provide you with the additional drop you would need. I attached a picture with dimensions on it for you to check out as well.

  • Can Curt Weight Distribution Shank # C17123 Work with Husky WD System
    The Curt weight distribution shank part # C17123 that you referenced does fit Husky weight distribution heads like what you have and will sit at least 3 inches lower than most standard shanks so this would fit and work well for you.

  • What is the Weight Capacity of Curt Weight Distribution Shank 17123
    The Curt weight distribution shank # C17123 is going to carry the same capacity as the rest of the system used with it. The highest rated Curt weight distribution systems are rated for 15,000 pounds gross trailer weight and 1,500 pounds tongue weight so that would be its limit. It doesn't have an official capacity so up to 15,000/1,500 pounds is the safe, tested limit.

  • Can a Hitch Adapter Be Used with a Weight Distribution System
    The shank that would have came with your weight distribution system more than likely has multiple holes which you can use to further level the trailer to the tow vehicle. If you have run out of adjustment points then you are going to need a new shank which I have attached a list of for you. In order to determine the correct rise/drop you need to look for in a weight distribution shank you will want to take a look at the attached help article. Once you find the correct rise/drop for your...

  • Drop Shank for Reese Weight Distribution Used on 2017 Dodge Ram 2500HD 4x4
    You are on the right track and have everything thought out correctly. You want the trailer to sit as level as possible and to do this you have to measure from bottom of coupler when level to the ground and then measure from the top of the hitch tube to the ground as well. If your bottom coupler lip is the same height as the bottom of the trailer frame then measuring from the frame to the ground between the two axles will work as well. If you need 6-7 more inches than what the Reese...

  • Shank Recommendation for a Weight Distribution System For 10 inches of Drop
    Since your weight distribution system has a ball mount built into it there would be no way to use an adjustable ball mount with it. But what you might really need is a new shank for your weight distribution system that allows for drops of up to 10 inches. The Curt shank part # C17123 can do up to 12-1/4 inches of drop and should work for you as long as your current setup has holes in the shank that are 3/4 of an inch in diameter and are 1-1/4 inch apart.

  • Can a Curt Weight Distribution Shank be Used with a Blue Ox Weight Distribution Head
    If your Blue Ox head bolts on using 3/4 inch diameter bolts that are spaced 1-1/4 inches apart on center then you could use a different shank such as Curt shank # C17123 which has a maximum drop of 12-1/4 inches. Nearly all brands of weight distribution systems use the same dimensions for the shanks so it is not uncommon to use a Curt shank with a different brand head as long as the holes match up.

  • Drop Weight Distribution Shank Recommendation for a Draw Tite Weight Distribution System
    The Curt weight distribution shanks are compatible with your Draw Tite weight distribution system and would work well to provide you with more drop. The part # C17123 that you referenced measures 11-1/4 inches from the top to the bottom so this would give you 3-1/4 more inches of drop than your current shank.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System Shank for Blue Ox SwayPro 1500 for Maximum Ground Clearance
    Based on your measurement of your trailer and your receiver, you will need a drop of 6.25 inches. The Curt Welded Weight Distribution Shank 7" - 10 Hole Adjustment # C17123 has a maximum drop of 6.25 inches so it will work well with your Blue Ox System and offer you the most ground clearance. The manufacturer difference between the shank and the system is not an issue as this shank and your Blue Ox SwayPro BXW 1500 # BXW1500 are compatible.

  • Shank Recommendation for 3 More Inches of Drop for Reese Weight Distribution System
    The Curt weight distribution shank part # C17123 would be a great option for you. This shank fits Reese systems and it extends about 4 more inches down below what your current shank does. I attached a review video for this shank for you to check out as well.

  • When Should Weight Distribution System be Replaced
    There is not a specific lifespan for a weight distribution system. If maintained and the system is properly rated for your towing setup, it can potentially last for a long time. When determining if it should be replaced, you will just want to take note of its various components, checking for excessive wear, rust or corrosion. Also keep in mind that individual parts can usually be replaced if needed without replacing the entire weight distribution system. If you find that you do need...

  • Can Bulldog Winch Mounting Plate be Used with Curt Shank and Adjustable 2" Reciver
    Yes, the Curt Welded Weight Distribution Shank # C17123 and Replacement 2" Receiver # C45802 are compatible with both the Replacement Tri-Ball # C45800 and the Bulldog Winch Hitch Mounted Winch Mounting Plate # BDW20011. I went out to the warehouse and verified this. I also spoke with my contact at Curt to get his take on using the winch mounting plate with these parts since they are technically designed to be used for towing and he said that it would be best to not exceed the 6,000...

  • Is Curt Weight Distribution Shank Compatible With Pro Series RB2 Weight Distribution System
    Yes, you can use the Curt Welded Weight Distribution Shank # C17123 with a Pro Series RB2 Weight Distribution System such as # 49570 as shanks from different manufacturers are compatible.

  • Maximum Trailer Weight Allowed for Curt Weight Distribution Shank # C17123
    The Curt Weight Distribution Shank # C17123 does not carry a weight rating because it has enough capacity to be used with ANY Curt weight distribution system that fits a 2-inch hitch. The trailer hitch into which you insert this shank will have a specific towing capacity that should be indicated on its safety/warning sticker.

    For a drop weight distribution shank that fits a 2-1/2 hitch similar to the Curt # C17123 you'd want the Curt shank part # C17132 which can do a drop of 8 inches. The weight capacities for this are 1,500 lb tongue weight and 15,000 lb total trailer weight. I attached a review video for this shank for you to check out as well.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution Shank with 8-1/4 Inch Drop
    You mentioned a measurement to the bottom of the trailer coupler of 27 inches, but I think you may have meant to type 17 inches (just let me know if I am wrong). If that is correct, then you will indeed need a weight distribution shank that will provide you with a drop of 8-1/4 inches. I recommend taking a look at the Curt Welded Weight Distribution Shank # C17123. This shank will provide up to a 8-1/4 inch drop as long as you have a round bar weight distribution system (6-1/4 inch...
