Video Transcript for Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution EQ90-02-4200 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution Shank. This is designed for use with the equalizer weight distribution systems. It can be used in either the drop or rise positions. It's going to be constructed of a really nice sturdy steel construction. Nice solid design here at the shank. End of the unit's been dipped for rust and corrosion protection and resistance.

Now, the shank of the unit is this piece right here. This is going to be the piece that slides into the receiver tip of your hitch. To secure it inside your hitch you will need to use a hitch pin and clip or a hitch lock. Those items are sold separately. They can be found right here at etrailer.com.

This unit will accept a standard 5/8" diameter pin. The product's made in the USA. It's designed for a 2" x 2" trailer hitch receiver. When it comes to the gross towing weight, it's rated from 6,000lbs to a maximum of 14,000lbs, and the tongue weight is rated from 600lbs to a maximum of 1,400lbs. Now, if you're using this in the rise position with the head assembly of your weight distribution system at the highest setting, it's going to give you a maximum rise of 8". That's measuring from the inside top edge of the receiver tube of your hitch or the top of the shank, so the top of the ball platform on the head assembly of your weight distribution system.

If you're using it in the drop position, and if you have the head assembly at the lowest setting, this is going to give you a maximum drop of 4" doing those same measurements. You can see these right here. These are our adjustment holes. This one's going to feature a 6 hole design. The distance between those holes measuring center on center measured 1 1/4" so that is your incremental height adjustment. The overall length of the unit measuring from front to back.

That's going to give us a length measurement of right at 12". If we measure from the hitch pin hole to the center of the adjustment holes, we're looking at 8". To the front of the unit, we're looking at 9. To the back of the bar, we're looking at 7. Measuring from the center of the hitch pin hole to the brace right here, that's going to give us a measurement of about 4 1/4". If we measure to the welded portion at the bottom of that support, that's going to be about 3 3/4" from the center of the hitch pinhole. That's going to do it for today's look at the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution Shank.

Great service, nice/knowledgeable people, and very good price. Thank you. The longer shank arrived a day early and it was in great condition. I attached the head to it this morning without a hitch (that was an attempt at humor). I will be setting up the weight distribution and trailer alignment in a few day. Thank you for the great service on both the equalizer hitch I purchased a few weeks ago and the longer shank that I need to set up our 21 foot Escape with the Jeep Grand Cherokee. 472784

Not sure what happened, but it collapsed during a vacation trip. Had to replace it with a solid shank which is much heavier, but did the job. Mobile technicial said he had never seen a hollow shank before. 634120


Comments

How heavy is the trailer you were pulling? This weight distributing shank is only rated for trailers with a 400 lb tongue weight/4000 lbs towing or less. If your trailer exceeded those specifications, the shank could indeed fail.

I purchased this to replace my 12” long hitch. This allowed me to keep my tailgate down and pull my camper. The hitch came in 2 days and took 10 min to swap the head from my Husky Weight Distribution Hitch. Still has the same 14,000lb rating as the 12” I took off. Of course my wife and kids were happy that we were able to take the golf cart for the first time with the camper. Great product! For reference, my truck is a 2015 Sierra 2500HD duramax pulling a 2018 Cruiser Embrace EL280 @ 6360lb dry. 628531

The first one they shipped was the wrong one. Called customer service on Wednesday had right one by Friday. Exchange/return was a minor inconvenience. I will give them great marks for their expedient handling as I needed it to set up hitch for weekend hunting excursion. Went from crossover to truck, thus the need for more drop. Went together with hitch head in about an hour and I was on my way. Thanks for the great service. 231281

We went from a 1994 Chevrolet C1500 to a 2018 F150. The receiver hitch was 3” higher on the Ford. The shank we had would not give me enough drop and the F150 tailgate could not be opened without hitting the RV’s tongue jack. This shank solved both problems. Excellent! 583955

Allows me to tow a travel trailer with my tailgate down (2011 Ram). I did not notice any difference in feel when towing compared to my previously shorter shank. There is no issue with the travel trailer hitting the tailgate- the length is perfect. This is much safer than using a hitch extender. The bolt pattern mated to my existing Husky brand hitch head. 386597

Review from a similar Equal-i-zer Repl WD Shank in Accessories and Parts


My order (107131659) arrived, but after test-fitting the extended shank onto my vehicle, I only have 6" of clearance on level ground. This will definitely not suffice, given the slope of my driveway. I'm hoping to get some help. What I'm ultimately trying to do is get my tow vehicle & camper trailer's Equal-i-zer hitch set up correct so that the trailer couple and the vehicle hitch ball are relatively level with one another before the hitch is connected (as per Equal-i-zer's instructions). Unfortunately, this requires that I either lower the hitch (which, as I found, results in too low of clearance at the shank), or raise the trailer. Do you have any suggestions? What about an "axle swap," where the under-slung springs are moved to the top of the trailer's axles? Thank you for your assistance and any recommendations you may have. 575939


Comments

Depending on the diameter of your axle tube, it might be possible to swap the leaf springs from the underside to the top of the axle. This will gain you about the diameter of the axle as a gain in height. For a 2-38 inch diameter axle, use part K71-384-00 or for a 3 inch diameter axle, use K71-385-00.

Toughest shanks on the planet that we have found for our customers come from etrailer and Equalizer (Progress Mfg). Don't let trying to save a few bucks put your rig at risk like the cast iron drawbar did in the photo below that was sent to me by a customer. If you buy the cheapest shanks, make sure you have good safety chains you will likely need them. Get the best from etrailer, Equalizer. 551524

I needed the extra length of this hitch shank to get my trailer hitch ball out from under the spare tire on my Jeep JK Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon. It works absolutely perfectly and is built extremely strong. I am using with an Equal-i-zer hitch system, but would be suitable for most other weight distributing hitch configurations if the centering between the adjustment holes is correct for your ball mount. 529658

Functionally the hitch is fine. The finish on it was very bad, it looks like they got the hitch from a scratch and dent sale and sprayed on some cheap paint. The hitch was supposed to be dipped but you could see the chipped paint underneath and smell the paint they put on it. I hope it will not rust out right away. 388918

Ordered a trailer hitch shank in a longer length (18" instead of the original 12") to provide more clearance for opening my tailgate when my travel trailer is attached. Service was excellent, arrived when promised and in good condition. Item was as advertised and of good quality. 248678

Not much to you can say about a shank. However, the service was great. I had ordered a different (to short) shank from Amazon and it took a week to arrive and wasn't packed or wrapped with anything. The paint was chipped and the edges banged up so much it wouldn't go into the receiver with out filling the edges. etrailer had it delivered in 2 days and the custom packing was so so good I didn't think the box UPS deliver was the shank. Great job etrailer! You'll be the first place I now look for accessories for my truck and trailer. 223907

I did not realize that I would need a longer shank when we switched tow vehicles, but the Nissan Armada receiver is actually higher than my GMC 2500HD. So much so that the 3" drop I was using didn't work. Fortunately eTrailer had this in stock and got it too me in 2 days (I had it expedited). It looks and works exactly like the Equalizer shank I had originally, but with a longer drop. 414359

I have a 2500 gmc sierra short bed and travel trailer. We purchased a golf cart and wanted to take the cart with us as when camping sites allow golf carts. Since my bed is 78" long I have to take the front cover of the cart off ( ezgo rxv) and I have to remove the tailgate because there is not enough room to lower it because of my trailer's electric Jack stand. My original equalizer weight distribution shaft is 12" so this gives me an extra 6" so I can leave my tailgate on and down. I no longer need to take the front cover off of the cart and the rear wheels are completely on the truck. Thanks George 451315

I'm now able to open the tailgate of my truck with the trailer attached. Side effects of using the longer shank are; power cable almost too short and original safety chains were too short and had to be replaced. But, the goal to be able to open the tailgate with the trailer attached was accomplished. 396883

  • How To Prevent Rear End Sag on a 2018 Ford F-150 Raptor While Towing
  • Yes, you can use a weight distribution system on your 2018 Ford F-150 Raptor. However, you will need to make sure the trailer hitch is rated for use with a weight distribution system. For one that is, I recommend the etrailer.com Trailer Hitch Receiver part # E98871 which is a direct fit so no drilling is required and it will exceed the weight limitations of your vehicle.

  • Can Equal-I-Zer shank part # EQ90-02-4200 Be Used with Fastway Weight Distribution

For starters, you will need the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System part # EQ37101ET and then you can obtain one of the following: Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Shank - part # EQ90-02-4200 (4" Drop) Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution...
