Bought along with Equalizer hitch. Arrived packaged with the hitch. Measure the coupler height before you order. Our couple is 31" high so standard shank will not work. Knowing that in advance saves money and hassle. Great customer service. 666408

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

Review from a similar Repl WD Shank in Accessories and Parts


My husband wanted this 18" thingy so he could put down the back tailgate on the truck with the RV attached. He took the truck and the RV to our local RV place. For a couple of packs of soda and a big smile, they put this on for him. He could have done it with some effort. But, they had the tools and the time. He is now very happy. He says every time, everything he has bought from etrailer has been the exact product he has wanted. Never a problem. 738279

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

Review from a similar Repl WD Shank in Accessories and Parts


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

Review from a similar 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.

Totally satisfied with price, shipping and quality. Solved my tailgate problem, while still maintaining the integrity of the Equalizer WDH system. The additional 6” allows me to drop the tailgate while still hooked to the trailer. Thanks for the prompt shipping 735122

  • Can Equal-I-Zer shank part # EQ90-02-4200 Be Used with Fastway Weight Distribution
    Yes, the Equal-I-Zer shank part # EQ90-02-4200 that you refernced is compatible with the Fastway weight distribution system you mentioned part # FA92-00-0600.

  • 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. For a weight distribution system, there are few better than the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System part # EQ37061ET...

  • Best Weight Distribution for 2019 Buick Enclave for Ground Clearance and Level Towing
    For your trailer to sit level you do need ability to have more drop on the hitch ball. Now I realize you are pretty low on ground clearance already, but since you are using a round bar setup you could make switch to trunnion bar setup and you'd have much better ground clearance. So since that is going to require you to buy a new shank, head, and bars it you'd be at a point that it would make the most sense to just go with an all new kit. The best option for that would be Equal-i-zer...

  • Is There An Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System For A Truck With 6 Inch Lift
    Yes, if you have a lifted truck then you would want to purchase the weight distribution system and shank separately as this will then allow you to obtain a shank that has the correct amount of drop for your truck without having to purchase an extra one. 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...

  • Weight of Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System
    The head unit of the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System # EQ37101ET weighs a little over 20 lbs while the pair of spring bars weigh about 35 lb (total, not each). This system does not come with a shank so depending on the rise or drop you need you can use Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Shank - 12" Long - 8" Rise, 4" Drop # EQ90-02-4200 or Equal-i-zer Weight Dist Shank - 12" Long - 7" Rise, 3" Drop # EQ90-02-4100.

  • Weight Distribution Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Ford Raptor Towing Airstream Globetrotter
    In order to choose the correct weight distribution system for your truck and trailer, it is really important to know your trailer's loaded and ready to tow tongue weight. Since this is the primary weight being distributed by a weight distribution system, it is the main factor in choosing a properly rated system. If you end up towing your camper at it's max gross vehicle weight rating of 6,500 lbs, and the tongue weight falls between 10% and 15% of the total trailer weight, we can expect...

  • Needing Deeper Drop Shank for Husky HT32215 Center Line Weight Distribution System
    The shank originally supplied with your Center Line weight distribution allowed for a maximum of a 1-1/4 inch drop. Since the shanks are brand-interchangeable with identical spacing of the adjustment holes, you'll just need to find a shank that has a deeper drop. The # EQ90-02-4200 from Equal-i-zer would provide up to a 4 inch drop or the # EQ90-02-4300 would provide up to 6 inches of drop.
