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.

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

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

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

I would like to start by saying the lady with customer service was wonderful! She went over and above to get the part for me. It was not in stock but she contacted the warehouse and had them send it directly to me rather than to them first. I spoke with her on Wed. and the part arrived on Fri. That is exceptional service! The shank itself is actually better than the original and works perfectly. I highly recommend etrailer.com. Also they were more reasonably priced than other sites. 402199

All the products work very well. We traded trailers and made adjustments to the hitch accordingly. Perfect results! The brake controller required only slight adjustments for timing and intensity. Everything works beautifully. I recommend you to all who inquire about these products, and your services with very competitive pricing!!

I needed a drop hitch shank for my weight distribution hitch to put on my 2015 Ram 1500. My truck has a a 6" lift running on 35" tires. This drop shank allowed me to set up my weight distribution keeping my camper at level, and the truck within 1/2 of the unladen height. This shank is heavy duty and well made. It will give anyone who needs a drop shank the adjust-ability to keep their trailer level regardless of the lift and tire size. Great value for the money. 346151

I ordered this item to help raise the hitch ball about four inches on my 2006 GMC Sierra 1500. The truck sits low normally and my attempt to tow a 4700 LB. trailer only made the back end lower. I was 6 inches too low from being level to tow. To compensate, I installed a Firestone Air lift system to level out the truck bed, giving me 4" of height at 50 psi plus reversing the shank and adjusting the ball height two more inches corrected the problem! The combination of the two items now gives me a level tow! I recommend both products for any similar mismatches between truck and trailer. 322127

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

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. 489788

  • Husky Weight Distribution System Needing 5 Inches of Adjustment at Shank
  • It sounds like you are interested in a shank for the Husky Center Line Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control - Trunnion - 8,000 lbs GTW, 800 lbs TW, # HT32217. This weight distribution system comes with the shank that has a maximum rise of 6-1/2 inches and a maximum drop of 1-1/4 inches. If you need a different shank for larger drop or rise, you will want the Curt Welded Weight Distribution Shank 7" - 10 Hole Adjustment, # C17123.

  • 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.

  • Weight Distribution System Compatible With Lifted Truck
  • The Curt MV Weight Distribution System w/ Friction Sway Control - Round Bar - 10K GTW, 1K TW # C17062 is not available without the shank. 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.

Also it doesn't come with a shank so that you can order one with enough drop. For shanks that will fit this kit and give you more drop we have the part # C17123 or for even more drop we have the part # C17124...

  • 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...

Using this sleeve will allow you to use a 2 inch shank like the Curt Welded Weight Distribution Shank, # C17123.

  • 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 6-1/4" of drop if your Blue Ox system has trunnion bars or 8-1/4" if it has round bars. There is also the Curt # C17124 which gives you up to 7-1/2" of drop with trunnion bars or 9-1/2" with round bars; additionally,...

  • 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.

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...

  • 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.

  • Replacement Drop Shank for the Curt TruTrack Weight Distribution System Part # C17500
  • The shank included in the Curt TruTrack Weight Distribution System part # C17500 has a 7-1/2" rise and a 1/2" drop while using trunnion spring bars. Therefore, if your current needs require a 5-1/4" drop in order to keep the trailer level with your tow vehicle then you will need to replace the shank with one more inline with your rise/drop needs. I do have an option for you but the Curt Weight Distribution Shank part # 17120 only has a 3-3/4" drop while using trunnion spring bars. For...

  • Recommendation on a WD Shank That Will Give the Most Rise or Drop Adjustment
  • Either one of the weight distribution shanks, Reese # RP3344 or Curt # C17123, will fit the Reese Steadi-Flex Weight Distribution System w/ Sway Control - Trunnion, # RP66559, that you referenced. However to get the 8 inch drop that you need for your application, I recommend the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Shank, # EQ90-02-4400. This shank will give you a max drop of 9 inches. The shank has a tongue weight capacity of 1,400 lbs and has an incremental adjustment of 1-1/4 inches.

  • 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 about 5 more inches of drop than what you currently have. Since your loaded tongue weight is right around 800 lbs this system should work very well for you once you get the correct...

  • Recommendation for Cargo Carrier that Sits Nose High with Weight Distribution System
  • To add a drop from the trailer hitch on your 2017 GMC Sierra 1500 when using the Curt Short-Arm Weight Distribution System # C17331 referenced in your question, I recommend using the Curt Welded Weight Distribution Shank # C17123. This is an adjustable shank with 10 bolt holes, spaced 1-1/4 inches apart, that will allow you to adjust the drop with your trunnion bar weight distribution system. The maximum drop it will give you is 6-1/4 inches. I have attached a short demonstration video...
