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.

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

Excellent service and products, quick shipping; I come to etrailer originally for trailer jacks, and then bought the Equalizer anti sway trailer system which is heavy duty, well-made, and also came quickly. Very happy with the knowledgeable staff! 664691

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 Equal-i-zer 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

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


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

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


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

Received this item yesterday on 10/25/2018 and put it on today 10/26/2018. Everything was 100% correct. This item was needed to allow my tail gate on this 2017 Tundra to open without hitting the lift post. Your service was outstand and I am considering replacing the mirrors at a later date. Thanks, I'll be back. 577689

  • Height of Equal-i-Zer Shank # EQ90-02-4200

    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. These two brands are actually made by the same company, but also the shanks are made to fit basically all other brands as they are made to same dimensions.

  • 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...

  • 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.
