This shank offers both rise and drop positions. It measures 7" from the hitch pin hole to the bolt holes. 10 Bolt holes let you adjust the height of your weight distribution system. Powder coated steel resists corrosion.


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. The large adjustment range lets me level my trailer when towing with my 3/4 ton Silverado. I have now towed my trailer about 15,000 miles with it and had no problems.



I an still using the shank and am very pleased with the performance. I expect to use it for many years to come.


It is exactly what they described it to be. Very happy with etrailer,I recommend them very highly, I put down the wrong address so i emailed them and they got it corrected with no delay on the delivery,and called to inform me they took care of it. Great place to do business with. Now I can go camping

Rick S.


Still working great, my camper pulls nice and level. And I still highly recommend etrailer.


Was exactly what I was looking for.


Every time I place an order with etrailer I know it will be correct. The service is great, Thank you!


I recently bought a new truck (Ram 2500 3/4 ton). My old truck was a Ram 1500 1/2 ton. My Husky hitch was fine on the 1500 truck, but not on the 2500, it sits a LOT higher off the ground. I needed a drop hitch that fit my Husky, and you guys HAVE IT. It worked out great, first trip out today with it, everything level and no sag on truck or camper. As stated in your catalog, this Curt brand DOES fit my Husky brand, NO PROBLEM. Thank you, what a life saver on not having to buy a whole new hitch.


Heavy and solid, extremely well built. 100% what I need.


Wow, ordered a very heavy part on Monday afternoon, got it Wed morning. Its perfect! Thank you


Great selection of products and excellent customer service!!!


This is one heavy duty weight distribution shank. I am very happy with etrailer, Now I have all Curt equipment on the truck, and super fast delivery. A+ job thank you


This is a good drop shank if you have a truck that is leveled with oversized tires.


Very good quality, heavy duty construction and nice finish. Recently changed tow vehicle and needed to add more drop. This shank did the job.


My initial review of the hitch’s quality and finish is impressive. However, I haven’t had the opportunity to hook it up to the trailer yet due to our current snow conditions. That being said, my transfer of my previous receiver looks flawless to this one and should work very well. Going from a Tundra to a Ram 2500, there is a significant height difference. All my measurements in the garage look to be just what I needed. I’m very confident I’ve made the correct purchase!


Exactly what I was looking for. Plenty of room for the adjustment needed. Excellent quality product, well fabricated. Very good customer service and speedy delivery time. Ordered on a Monday morning and had the part before 1pm the next day.

Tim C.


The part I ordered works perfect and we’re ready to begin another season of hauling our 27’ camper tomorrow.


Ordered on Tuesday and in my hand on Thursday. Love this company


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.





I needed a weight distribution system and quickly realized that Curt was the best around. You get what you pay for so why not get the best!? Very simple to install and with the correct routine maintenance this will last forever, Shipping was fast and box was In good shape when it arrived.


Needed a new shank as I bought the Class 5 hitch for my dodge,, I bought the class 5 that fit under the stock hitch and wish I had not, but after thought etc,, should have just removed the class 3 and bought a different 5,., all in all worked out but a new shank because my hitch was now lower than what it was, I probably didnt need a new one because after all the measuring etc,, ( Have to go to a parking lot as I live in dirt) to make it level, worked out fine.



Still good thanks


After shopping around for a hitch ,I was recommended to etrailer by a friend and found exactly the hitch I needed at a much better price than all the other places that I had looked at,even for the same brand and model of hitch !!



excellent quality, worked great and was major improvement towing my race car


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!!



Its a shank, what can I say. It was exactly what I needed and its still towing my trailer perfectly.


This product fit my needs for lowering my hitch point to make the trailer tow level. Absolutely no problems!



Still working fine.


After getting a new truck that sets a little higher I thought I would have to buy a complete new weight distribution hitch. I was able to find just the shank part at etrailer.


etrailer customer service is outstanding. I needed a long drop down receiver for my lifted truck and Meghan L talked with me on the phone for about 45 minutes. We did measurements and looked for a while to make my trailer ride level. Meghan was very helpful and the product has been top quality. Thank you for all your help.


It is what it says, it's a good quality drop or rise shank. measure carefully to make sure of how much drop or rise you need.

Dave P.


Awesome, I love this hitch!!


I have been ordering from etrailer for years. The items I receive are always of good quality and are Ata reasonable price.


Solid design. Worked out great with my new Titan XD. My new truck sits higher than my old 04 Silverado Z71. The old shank that came with the weight distribution hitch just wasn't long enough. I needed an additional 4" drop. This shank is solid like the original and gives me up to 6.5" additional drop.

Shipping was fast. About 4 days.

I am a repeat customer and will shop here again.

  • Choosing Weight Distribution Shank with Correct Rise or Drop for 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe
    You can certainly use a Curt shank with a Reese weight Distribution system. Weight distribution shanks from Reese and Curt Manufacturing both use the same 1-1/4 inch hole spacing. Ideally, you'd want the manufacturer of the W/D system and the shank to match, but if Reese doesn't offer the specific rise/drop you need, you can use a Curt shank. Because your Tahoe sits six inches higher than your previous tow vehicle, you will need a shank with 4 inches more drop. Check out the Curt shank...

  • Can I Use the Curt Weight Distribution Shank with an Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System
    Yes. The holes on the Curt Welded Weight Distribution Shank 7" - 10 Hole Adjustment # C17123 are spaced the standard 1-1/4" apart (center on center), so you can use this shank with an Equal-i-zer weight distribution hitch.

  • Can The Curt High-Low Adapter C27KR Be Safely Used For Towing A Trailer?
    We should have a potential solution for you, but to answer your question, no, you cannot safely use the Curt High-Low Adapter # C27KR for this purpose. The Curt adapter is to be used for flat towing only and cannot be used for towing a trailer, regardless of weight. Are you trying to raise/lower the height of a weight distribution hitch? Generally this is done by using a shank with the appropriate amount of rise or drop such as the Curt Welded Weight Distribution Shank # C17123. I am...

  • Lower Drop Weight Distribution Shank Recommendation for Reese Dual Cam Setup
    The Curt shank part # C17123 would be what you need. It works with the Dual Cam setup and it has 10 holes that can be used so it will give you the additional drop you need without sticking down too far.

  • Replacement Shank for Weight Distribution System to Allow for Fitting 2 inch Hitch
    You'd want to go with a 2 inch shank. Anytime you try to go from a larger hitch accessory to a smaller hitch you have to use an adapter that cuts capacity of the hitch so switching shanks would be what you would want. The shank part # C17123 is a 2 inch shank with 10 holes of adjustability so that you can tow your trailer level. The great thing about the weight distribution shanks is that the manufacturers all decided to make them the same dimensions so they all work on each others systems.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • What Part of Weight Distribution System Can be Swapped Between Brands
    Some parts of weight distribution systems can be interchangeable between brands, but not heads and spring bars. We have no parts for Quality S products. These will be brand-specific and can even be product line-specific too, working with only one particular style of system from a given maker. Shanks like # C17123 all use standardized hole size and spacing so this particular item in a WD setup if perfectly fine to swap to another brand if needed.

  • How to Get Additional Height From Weight Distribution System
    What you need is a taller weight distribution shank so that you can move the head of the system up higher and get the additional height needed. For that the Curt part # C17123 which would give you additional height.

  • Shank For Curt TruTrack Weight Distribution With Holes to Adjust Drop
    Okay, so the short answer is that while there is a shank that has adjustment holes, there is not an adjustable ball mount/hitch that you can use (with any receiver size, not just 3") with the Curt TruTrack Weight Distribution System w/ Sway Control - Trunnion - 15,000 lbs GTW, 1,500 lbs TW # C17501. What you will need, which gives you 10 adjustment holes for up to 8-1/4" of drop or 11-1/2" of rise, is the Curt Welded Weight Distribution Shank 7" - 10 Hole Adjustment # C17123. This shank...

  • 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 8-1/2 inches for round bar systems and a drop of 8-1/4 inches for the trunnion system. For even more drop the part # C17124 would give you up to 9 inches of drop for trunnion systems and 10 for round.

  • Drop Shank Recommendation for Curt Weight Distribution
    I would strongly recommend you go with a shank that offers more drop than the one that comes with the Curt TruTrack Weight Distribution System # C17500 that you referenced if your trailer is sitting nose high by about 2-1/2 inches with the included shank. The part # C17123 should be perfect as it offers up to 8-1/4 inches of drop, which is more than enough for your setup. Since your loaded tongue weight is right around 800 lbs this system should work very well for you once you get the...

  • Shank With Drop for Blue Ox Weight Distribution System
    I believe you are asking about a shank with drop for your Blue Ox weight distribution system. Shanks are interchangeable so as long as you know how much drop you need you can choose what will work for you. For example, the Curt # C17123 shank will work and gives you up to 8-1/4" of drop if your Blue Ox system has trunnion bars or 8-1/2" if it has round bars. There is also the Curt # C17124 which gives you up to 9" of drop with trunnion bars or 10" with round bars; additionally, each of...

  • Will the Curt Welded Weight Distribution Shanks C17123 or C17122 Reduce Trailer Hitch Capacity
    The Curt Welded Weight Distribution Shanks part # C17123 and part # C17122 are not considered extensions, therefore the hitch would not lose capacity as a result of this but it would if the weight capacity is under that of either shank which for part # C17122 is 15,000/1,500 lbs. The shanks are made of solid steel and have a gusset for added support. Therefore, you should not be concerned about strength so long as you abide by their weight capacity.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution Drop Shank To Tow Trailer Level
    To achieve the necessary drop with your weight distribution system in order to tow your trailer level, I recommend switching to a different weight distribution shank such as the Curt Welded # C17123. This shank has a maximum drop of 8-1/2 inches with round bar systems and 8-1/4 inches with trunnion bar systems. This will work with your weight distribution system as long as it uses shank holes with a 3/4 inch diameter. The measurement between the adjustment holes is 1-1/4 inches on center....

  • 10 Hole Welded Weight Distribution Shank
    For a longer shank for your Curt weight distribution system I recommend the Curt Welded Weight Distribution Shank 7" - 10 Hole Adjustment item # C17123. This shank fits a 2" receiver, is compatible with your trunnion bar system, and has a overall height of 13-1/4". I have linked a diagram.

  • 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.

  • Shank Recommend for Curt Weight Distribution to Allow Trailer to Sit Level Towing V-Nose Trailer
    I can help you with both issues. What you need to allow your trailer to be towed level is a longer shank like the part # C17123 which allows for a drop of up to 8-1/2 inches which is much more than what comes with the # C17057. Then to fit the chain hangers around the V-nose of the trailer you'd want the # C17005. These can bolt underneath the V-nose on the trailer frame in the location needed so that you can hang the chains in the right location.

  • Replacement Weight Distribution Shank to Keep Hitched Trailer Level When Towed by Lifted Truck
    The shank component of a weight distribution system has standardized hole size and hole spacing so you can use any brand of shank to get you the rise or drop you need to keep your hitched trailer level with the ground. This ensures the best handling from the trailer. You can see all shanks on the linked page. Since your truck could have either a 2-inch or a 2-1/2-inch hitch be sure to click on the appropriate size shank at the top of the page. For each shank we will indicate the rise or...

  • 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 greater,...

  • Weight Distribution System for a 2014 Jeep Wrangler with 3 Inch Lift
    There is only one size shank that comes with the Curt weight distribution systems so you would have to get a different shank separately if more drop is needed. What I recommend though is Fastway system # FA94-00-1033. It doesn't come with a shank so you can order one to go with it that has the right amount of drop such as # C17123. With this system you will also need a ball, # 19286, for a 2-5/16 inch ball. I have linked a video review of the Fastway system for you.
