Video Transcript for Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution EQ90-02-1000 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the replacement head for Equal-i-zer weight distribution systems. This replacement weight distribution head fits Equal-i-zer systems rated at 10,000 pounds gross towing weight and 1,000 pounds tongue weight. Mounting hardware, washers and spacer rivet are sold separately. The product is made from a steel construction and it's going to feature a black powder-coated finish to resist rust and corrosion. It's also made in the U.S.A. You can see here it has the connection points for the end of your spring bar.

It goes in there. You line up the holes, you secure in place with the pin and clip. It's got the hole right here for the ball. If we take a measurement of that we can see that it's going to give us a ball hole diameter of 1-1/4. This unit does come with a new set bolt right here which applies pressure to the weight distribution shank. Then the shank sits in here and then this is where your hardware would insert and spacer rivet and spacers or flat washers.

That's going to do it for today's look at the replacement head for the Equal-i-zer weight distribution systems.

Adjustable head assembly works with Equal-i-zer weight distribution systems with a maximum tongue weight rating of 1,000 lbs. Hardware sold separately.


Excellent hitch head and weight distribution/sway system. It came a day earlier than expected as well!


Bad mfg. !!!! Sockets for the spring bars were too large for the head. Tried to remove and clean them up but could see that they were forced into the head as the steel was cut and scarred from forcing them in. Spoke with Progress Mfg. and they are going to replace the head. We'll see what happens.


After a visit to the trailer dealership and discovery of a long lead time to receive my part, I was able to order/receive my replacement part in a reasonable amount of time from etrailer (Thanks!) Had an issue with the jam bolt and wear on the old head (after lots of miles, and lack of lubrication) decided to replace the head. On this head I'm spending more time cleaning and lubricating before each use and it appears to be helping reduce the amount of wear on the spring bar receivers. Kind of a pain to lubricate wish the manufacture would install grease fittings top and bottom both sides.


Always have what I need at a competitive price and quick shipping.


Purchased all the necessary parts here to duplicate the weight distribution hitch for a second tow vehicle used for our travel trailer. The etrailer website had all the Equalizer parts numbers making ordering easy and accurate. Tracking info was forwarded to me by email as soon as order shipped. Parts arrived quickly and well packaged. Now we’re ready to tow using either of our vehicles. Thanks etrailer!


Ordered equalizer hitch head thinking it was gunna be bolt on and go. Not exactly the case. The inserts for the distribution bars were powder coats in a fixed position and could not get them to move. Had to remove and grind off all the powder coat and reassemble it back together for it to work properly. Also had to change hardware, soon as you tightened down the supplied nut and bolt even after everything was grinder down the inserts still wouldn't move. So be prepared to spend a couple hours making it right.


OEM part. Bought this to upgrade my from 6K to,10K pounds.
etrailer got parts from MO to Virginia Beach using their free freight in 4 days. Ordered Sunday, delivered Thursday. Excellent

Working well. This part is an upgrade to an existing hitch unsized by my dealer. I am glad Eual-i-zer is a “family” of parts. Only had to buy the head and 2 bars. All else is the same. etrailer did exfellent with timely shipping and packing. Towing experience is much better, now.

If you own a towed vehicle and need replacement parts, e-trailer is the only company you’ll ever need. The website is easy to navigate and shipping was fast. I ordered a new hitch head to pull my camper and when it arrived it was spot on correct. With e-trailer you get what you expect to get. I have ordered from them a few times with perfect results. I highly recommend e-trailer to anyone!!


Great hitch! I use a Chevy Colorado to tow a 24' Jayco, works great. I also tow the same trailer with a HD 2550 and while it might be overkill I also use this hitch.


I received items ordered which arrived several days ahead of schedule.


I received my part today, just as they said!
bought this to upgrade my current hitch from 6,000 lbs. to 10,000 lbs.
Bought a new trailer that is a bit heaver than my old one. I want to be safe when towing!


Picture perfect transaction like all of our orders.
Highly recommend


Very good experience with etrailer. I called in to check to make sure I was getting the right part and they ordered it for me right away. It was delivered promptly and they followed up.


Great experience ordering parts I needed. The parts were shipped exactly the day they promised. Definitely would use etrailer again. Thanks again.


Fast shipping, just what I ordered.


The item was exactly what I needed and wanted. I will continue to review items on your website. The staff was quick to respond and guided me through the whole purchasing process. Thank you very much!


Exactly what I wanted


Excellent quality parts. Thank you for fast shipping.



This was shipped extremely fast. Product is exactly what I was looking for


Shipped quickly and was the product i asked for.

  • Are Sockets From Equal-i-zer Heads Interchangeable?
    I reached out to a representative of Equal-i-zer, who told me that the sockets from the 1,200 lb tongue weight head # EQ90-02-1200 will not fit in a 1,000 lb tongue weight head # EQ90-02-1000 because they are too big. If you need additional sockets for the 1,000 lb tongue weight head you would need replacements # EQ90-03-1000.

  • Normal Wear and Tear on an Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Head
    I spoke with my representative at Equal-i-zer and the grooves that you see at the top and bottom of the spring bar receiver on the head is normal wear. He also mentioned that keeping the receiver lubricated will help reduce on wear in the future, but not to be immediately alarmed with this type of wear. The head would only need to be replaced if the system is not effectively distributing the weight or controlling trailer sway when it is properly adjusted. I would first recommend checking...

  • Upgrading Equal-i-zer System from 600 lb Tongue Weight to 1,000 lb Tongue Weight
    The Equal-i-zer weight distribution spring bars and heads are both designed to fit specific tongue weight ratings so you'd have to replace both. So to uprate your system to 1,000 lbs tongue weight you'd need the head part # EQ90-02-1000 and the spring bars # EQ90-02-1099.

  • Replacement Bars for an Equalizer Hitch, 14,000 to 10,000 Solution
    At one point Equal-i-zer bars could be swapped easily to convert a kit to a higher/lower tongue weight range, but we now know that you have to replace the head of the unit with the bars. So with the bars part # EQ90-01-1099 that you need you will need to swap the head # EQ90-02-1000 in as well. Also if you are getting persistent sway try moving more weight of the trailer up to the front to increase the tongue weight as that typically is the easiest fix for sway.

  • Can Spring Bars of Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System be Changed to Change Rating
    Yes, you can just replace the spring bars and head of your current system to change the weight rating. All you would need is the part # EQ90-01-1099 for a set of bars and # EQ90-02-1000 for the head that are rated lower at 1,000 lbs tongue weight.

  • Replacement Hitch Head For Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution 1,000LB/10,000LB System
    If you move up to the 1,200LB Equal-i-zer Hitch Head # EQ90-02-1200 you will need to use the larger 1,200lb weight distribution Spring Bars # EQ90-01-1299 with the hitch as they use larger spring bars. To use your current spring bars you will need the 1,000LB Equal-i-zer Hitch Head # EQ90-02-1000.

  • Troubleshooting Angle Head Bolt of Equal-i-zer System that Won't Thread Past 1/4 Way In
    I would recommend checking out the threads of the head of your system as it's very possible they were damaged or stripped. If the wrong size bolt was threaded a quarter of the way into it or the right size bolt won't thread past that point that would indicate an issue with the threads. Most likely you'll need a new head for the system which will depend on the system you have. The # EQ90-02-1200 would be for if you have the 1,200 lb tongue weight kit part # EQ90-02-1000 for 1,000 lb kit,...

  • How To Upgrade from the 600 Lb to 1,000 Lb Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System
    The Replacement Socket for Equal-i-zer 1,000 Lb Weight Distribution Systems part # EQ90-03-1000 is larger than the Replacement Socket for Equal-i-zer 600 Lb Weight Distribution Systems part # EQ90-03-0600 therefore, it cannot be used with the Replacement Head for Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Systems part # EQ90-02-0600.

  • How Much Does the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System # EQ37100ET Weigh
    The Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System # EQ37100ET that you referenced has a shipping weight of 109 lbs so it is a little hefty like the majority of WD systems out there. If you take away a few pounds for the shipping materials you are left with about 105 lbs. The Spring Bar # EQ90-02-1099 weighs in at about 17 lbs so if you removed both that would be 34 lbs, making the leftover weight 69 lbs. Keep in mind that there are some other components that you will not be removing at the same...

  • Parts Needed to Upgrade Spring Bars of Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution to 1,000 lb Spring Bars
    You are on the right track Brian! So what you'll need is an upgraded set of spring bars and a new head and you'd be set with a higher rated system. The shank and spring hangers are totally fine. So the two components you'd need are the # EQ90-02-1000 for the head and two of the spring bars # EQ90-02-1099.

  • Dimension of Equal-I-zer Weight Distribution System # EQ37100ET from Hitch Ball Center to Hitch Pin
    The Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System w/ 4-Point Sway Control # EQ37100ET has a measurement of 8 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the adjustment holes and then the head # EQ90-02-1000 has a center of hole to center of hitch ball measurement of 4-1/4 inches. So your total length will be 12-1/4 inches from the center of the ball to the center of the hitch pin hole.

    The Replacement Head for Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Systems, part # EQ90-02-1000 comes assembled just like it is when you purchase an entire WD system like part # EQ37100ET.

  • How Much Does the 6,000 lb Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System Weigh
    The 6,000 lb Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution (WD) System # EQ37060ET weighs about 10 lbs less than the 10,000 lb System # EQ37100ET. It has a shipping weight of 98 lbs so if you take away about 5 lbs for the shipping cartons that leaves you with about 94 lbs. If you are concerned about moving it around, the spring bars # EQ90-02-0699 weigh about 14 lbs each, the shank # EQ90-02-4100 weighs about 20 lbs, and the head unit # EQ90-02-1000 weighs about 21 lbs. These are the biggest components...

  • Replacement Weight Distribution Hitch Head for Equal-i-zer System
    Since the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution (WD) friction bars feature a 4-point sway system you will not have to worry about anti-sway bars. We do have a selection of Equal-i-zer WD Replacement Heads that you can choose from you will just need to select the one that corresponds to the weight range of the bars that you have. Here is our selection of Equal-i-zer WD Heads: 400 lbs - # EQ90-02-0400 600 lbs - # EQ90-02-0600 1,000 lbs - # EQ90-02-1000 1,200 lbs - # EQ90-02-1200 1,400 lbs - #...

  • Upgrading 600 lb Tongue Weight Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution to 1,000 lb System
    The issue is definitely that you have an underrated system, which is why you are experiencing sway. The Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System # EQ37060ET you said you have now is rated for total tongue weights - the tongue weight of your fully loaded and ready to go trailer plus the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of your truck - of between 200 lbs and 600 lbs, with the ideal system being one in which your total tongue weight is in the middle of the system's rating.

  • Dimensions of Equal-I-zer Spring Bars EQ90-01-1099
    The Spring Bars for Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Systems # EQ90-01-1099 are the same as those included in the complete 10K system # EQ37101ET. I measured these bars with a digital caliper to get you accurate dimensions. The dimensions of the end of these bars that enters the head assembly is 1.35 x 1.35-inches (or 34.5mm x 34.5mm). These fit the head assembly # EQ90-02-1000.

  • Are Spring Bars on Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System Interchangeable?
    You would not be able to simply replace the spring bars on your Equal-i-zer # EQ37060ET weight distribution hitch. Instead you would need to get both the 1,000 lb tongue weight spring bars # EQ90-01-1099 as well as the 1,000 lb head unit # EQ90-02-1000.

  • Replacement Shank, Head and Hitch Ball for Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System # EQ37100ET
    For your Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System # EQ37100ET, you can use the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Shank # EQ90-02-4100, which has a maximum rise of 7 inches and a maximum drop of 3 inches. For the system head, you will use the Equal-i-zer Replacement Head # EQ90-02-1000. This is designed specifically for the 1,000 pound tongue weight system you have and for the compatible 2-5/16 inch hitch ball you will use # EQ91-00-6100.

  • Can an Equal-I-Zer Head be Used with Fastway Spring Bars
    I believe you have the Fastway version which is a # FA92-00-1000. It is made by Equal-I-zer too. The Fastway and Equal-I-Zer heads are not interchangeable though. If you want to go to a 4-point sway control you would have to switch the whole system to Equal-I-Zer using # EQ37101ET. This is the complete system minus the shank since the shank is the only part that you can reuse. Keep in mind that for weight distribution the tongue weight would also include the weight of anything loaded behind...

  • Is an Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System Head Compatible with the Gen-Y Hitch # 325-GH-1102
    Most weight distribution systems mount on shanks that are 2" wide and have mounting holes that measure 1-1/4" apart on center. I spoke with my contact at Gen-Y Hitch who confirmed that the Torsion Weight Distribution Shank for 2-1/2" Hitch # 325-GH-1102 does have the standard width of 2" for the head and mounting holes 1-1/4" apart on center. If you are using a weight distribution head from Equal-i-zer like part # EQ90-02-1000 then they are compatible with each other.

    The 10K and 12K Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Systems like part # EQ37100ET and part # EQ37120ET use different heads and spring bars so if you wish to switch back between the two capacities you will need both of these items which I have listed for you below. Equal-i-zer 10K Head part # EQ90-02-1000 Equal-i-zer 10K Spring Bars part # EQ90-01-1099 Equal-i-zer 12K Head part # EQ90-02-1200 Equal-i-zer 12K Spring Bars part # EQ90-01-1299

  • Will Equal-i-zer Hitch Ball # EQ91-00-6120 Fit Head # EQ90-02-1000
    Yes, the hitch ball part # EQ91-00-6120 that you referenced will fit the Equal-i-zer weight distribution head part # EQ90-02-1000 that you also referenced. You'll need a thin walled socket like part # ALL643216 to install the ball though due to restricted clearances.

All 3 components are rated for at least 10,000 lbs and the Equal-i-zer head is compatible with the adjustment holes on the Curd shank and with the Curt hitch ball.
