Video Transcript for Curt Weight Distribution C17123 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number C17123. This is the Curt weight distribution shank. It's going to have a ten-hole adjustment. This portion of the mount is going to slide into the receiver tube of our hitch; that's going to provide the attachment point to get us secured in the hitch and then here on the front face is where our attachment points are located for mounting our weight distribution systems head assembly. This is designed for use with current weight distribution systems. Again, you're going to have the ten-hole adjustment for attaching the head assembly; that's going to let you level your trailer with your tow vehicle; a lot of options there. The drop low rise position is available with this unit so that way it can fit your particular application.

With it installed on the hitch, and this pointing down towards the ground, that's going to be the drop position. This position here would be known as the rise position. This is a welded steel construction. It's very strong and durable solid steel so we don't have any hollow points except our mounting holes. It's going to have a really nice textured black powder coat finish on it, so it's going to stand up really well against rusting and corrosion. Again, this is designed for 2"x2" trailer hitch receivers.

It's going to give us a weight capacity of 15,000 pounds with a towing weight capacity of 1,500 pounds. We're going to take a few measurements real quick. Take a look at the overall length. What we're measuring is from the center of one outer pin hole to the center of the outer pin hole on the other side of the adjustment shank. If I take a measurement center on center, that's going to give us a measurement of 11-1/4". These holes, you can look down that ruler there; these are going to be separated on center from one another by 1-1/4".

That measurement's going to be consistent all the way down through those mounting holes. When used in the rise position, this is going give us a maximum rise of 8-7/8". That measurement is going to be taken from the inside top edge of the receiver tube of our hitch to the top of our ball platform. That would be with our platform mounted at the highest setting, again, 8-7/8" rise. Maximum drop would be 5-5/8". The diameter of our hitch pin hole to get us secured in our hitch, that's going to measure 5/8". A few more measurements.

From the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the shank is going to give us a measurement of 3". From the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest point of the support bar, that's also going to measure 3". Now from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of this upright bar right here, it's going to give us a measurement of 6", and then from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the pin holes here for the head assembly, that's going to give us a measurement of 7". Overall length back to front is going to be about 11". Overall length of the adjustment bar here with the holes in it, 13-1/4". That's going to do it for our review of part number C17123. This is the Curt weight distribution shank.

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

I recently purchased a 2015 Tahoe and since the trailer hitch is positioned above the bumper as opposed to my 2000 Tahoe which has the hitch located below the bumper, I had to find and purchase a new receiver. I found this product at etrailer and it fits perfectly. It is compatible with the Drawtite weight distribution ball. 211625

We searched high and low for this at a decent price with no prevail till we came across etrailer. Lucky for us it was EXACTLY what we needed we had previously purchased a used one and it had 2" space instead of 1 1/4 not even thinking of that before purchasing. anyway this is a quality product at a lower cost so dont second guess yourself like we did u will end up spending more and still end up back at etrailer lol 479219

Fit perfect. My wife installed the part herself. I was out of town when the part come in. I called etrailer for her and they were very helpful in explaining how to properly remove old parts and install new ones. She was able to install it along with new drop shank for hitch also. 375428

etrailer delivered on time as promised and I had no problems with the order. The product was as described and works perfectly with my Husky Centerpoint hitch.

I just purchased a Ford F-250. Needed a longer shank for my Husky weight distribution hitch for my travel trailer. This will work perfect. One issue I had was the weld on the receiver part of the shank protruded so that my 2 1/2" X 2" reducer sleeve wouldn't slide in all the way keeping my hitch pin from sliding through. A little hack saw work and now everything works great. 669144

by:

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

With the expert help from Tiffany J. at e-trailer I was able to locate the right shank for my 2017 Chevy 1/2 4wd Silverado that has 33" tires, with a 6" lift. When it arrived, I installed the shank, then added my dist. ball mount all the way to the bottom two holes. I usually set my pin height at 18", this set it at 21.5". I hooked up the car hauler, that took it down to 20", the trailer was a little nose high, with the car on it, the nose is slightly low, with the dist. bars, it sits perfect. I could not be happier with the customer service, and the part as well. 547617

The shank was not in stock when I ordered it and I was concerned it wouldn't come in time for my camping trip. I sent an email asking about the delivery date and I received a response the same day letting me know when it would be received from the manufacturer and shipped to me. I did receive it exactly when they said and also got an email letting me know when it shipped. It was a pleasure dealing with etrailer!! 508920

Do you have a question about this Accessories and Part?


  • Does Curt TruTrack Weight Distribution Shank have the Rise/Drop to Tow Trailer Level w/2016 F-250
  • Given that your 2016 Ford F-250 is a 4x4 and has large tires on it there is a good chance that the shank included with Curt weight distribution system # C17501 doesn't have enough drop to tow your trailer level. First we need to figure out how much drop (or rise if the trailer coupler is taller than the hitch receiver) is needed. With the truck and trailer on level ground but not hooked up to each other there are a couple of measurements needed. Measure from the ground to the top of...

  • Drop Shank Options for Husky Centerline Weight Distribution System
  • All of the weight distribution systems use the same shank mounting dimensions so other brands of weight distribution shanks can be used with your Husky Centerline TS. If you need just a few more inches of drop the Curt shank part # C17123 would work well. For a bit more of a drop the # C17124 would work well. The largest drop we have is the part # C17125 which probably would be too much for you setup.

  • Best Weight Distribution System for 2012 Ram 1500 5.7L Hemi W/4 Lift and 7,500 lb Travel Trailer
  • You will be okay with a 7,500 lb travel trailer with an appropriate weight distribution system based on the numbers you gave. Because you don't know what trailer you will be getting yet, the Reese Steadi-Flex Weight Distribution System w/ Sway Control # RP66561 is a great option because the total tongue weight range of this system is 700 to 1400 lbs which is a broader range than most. The total tongue weight is the loaded trailer tongue weight along with any cargo behind the rear axle...

  • Edge to Edge Dimensions on Husky WD Shank # HT30859
  • I went out to our warehouse to take a couple measurements on the weight distribution shanks that you mentioned in your question. The Husky # HT30859 measures 14 inches long (edge to edge) on the shank portion that inserts into the hitch receiver and 14-1/2 inches long (edge to edge) on the adjustment hole side. The Equal-i-zer # EQ90-02-4400 measures 12 inches long on the hitch receiver shank and 14 inches along the adjustment holes. The Curt # C17123 measures 11 inches long...

One of the most popular options that we carry is the Curt # C17123 which has a 7" long shank and allows you to adjust your round bar system to a max 8-1/4" drop or a max 11-3/4" rise. I have also attached a link to our selection of WD shanks that are compatible with a 2" hitch receiver. As long as they have a squared side and don't slope down like part...

  • Is it OK to Mix Different Brands of Weight Distribution Head & Shank Components
  • All other things being equal, yes, it is better to use a weight distribution head assembly and shank from the same manufacturer. This allows you to know with certainty what the weight capacity of such a set-up actually is. If parts from different manufacturers are mixed there could potentially be fit issues due to things like different machining tolerances or to the thickness of a powder-coat finish. Staying with the same maker tends to avoid any such concerns. That said, if the head...

  • Will the Curt 15K TruTrack Weight Distribution System Work On a Jayco Eagle 338RETS
  • Generally speaking, you do not need to upgrade your weight distribution system when triple towing because the weight distribution system only needs to be rated for tongue weight which would not increase when adding another trailer to your setup. That said, the Husky 12K Weight Distribution System you have now is underrated for the weight of your Jayco Eagle 338RETS so I do recommend you upgrade.

  • Measuring for Drop or Rise on 2006 Dodge Ram Pickup
  • To determine if the shank on Curt TruTrack # C17501 will provide you with enough drop on your 2006 Dodge Ram 3500 you will need to take a couple measurements. Ensuring your Ram and trailer are on level ground, measure from the top of the receiver on your Ram to the ground. Then measure from the bottom of your trailer's coupler to the ground. Assuming the Ram is higher, the amount the hitch is higher by is the amount of drop you will need to account for. Should you end up needing a shank...

  • Weight Distribution System Compatible With Lifted Truck

For your raised truck, you can interchange companies for the shank head, however the companies may void your warranty. I recommend using the Curt Welded Weight Distribution Shank 7" - 10 Hole Adjustment # C17123, for your lifted truck. This will give you a maximum drop of 5-5/8 inches. If you need a bigger drop than that, you will need to use # C17124.

  • 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.

This will come with the 2-5/16 inch hitch ball needed, but not the shank. The shank I recommend to go with this system is the Curt Welded Weight Distribution Shank 7" - 10 Hole Adjustment # C17123 which combined will give you a 6-1/4 inch drop.

  • Weight Distribution System or New Shank with More Drop to Tow Trailer Level
  • We cannot open the packages and swap out the shanks so the best option is to either just replace the shank that you have or choose a system that doesn't come with a shank and shank separately. You don't have to get a whole new weight distribution system if you just need a shank with more drop. You can buy just a shank. Most shanks are interchangeable amongst the different manufacturers. If the head of the weight distribution system you have now mounts to the shank using 3/4 inch diameter...

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for a Chevy Suburban that Needs 8 inches of Drop

  • Is a Taller Weight Distribution Shank Needed to Tow Trailer Level if Ball is Lower than Coupler
  • If the trailer does not sit level (which it sounds like it won't) then yes you will need to go with a different shank that will allow the trailer to sit level. Was the trailer sitting level when you took the measurement? Typically we see people needing more drop than rise with WD systems but anything is possible. If the holes on your current shank are 3/4 inch in diameter and 1-1/4 inch apart on center you could go with the Curt shank part # C17123 which has a total of 13-1/4 in shank...
