Video Transcript for Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution EQ90-02-4400 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Shank, this is designed for use with Equal-i-zer weight distribution systems, you can use it in either the drop or rise positions. This would be known as the rise, flip it over where this is pointing down and that would be known as the drop position. It's going to feature a 6 hole design so it's going to allow for plenty of adjustment when it comes to your weight distribution head. It's going to be constructed of a sturdy high grade steel, so that's solid steel, really nice design, we have really nice consistent welds here for the bracing and just overall it's a nice, solid durable unit. It does feature a dipped finish, so it does provide protection from rust and corrosion and the product's made right here in the USA. This is designed to slide into a 2" x 2" trailer hitch receiver, the pinhole diameter fr your hitch pin and clip or your hitch locks is going to be around 5/8", it'll accept a standard 5/8" diameter pin. The gross trailer weight capacity for this weight distribution shank is 14,000lbs. Tongue weight rating is from 600lbs with a max capacity of 1,400lbs. A few measurements to go over with you real quick. We're going to take a measurement of the overall shank length. Measuring from the very back to the very front, that's going to give us a shank length of 12".

The front portion, from bottom to top. I'm just going to go ahead and turn that so you can see it a little bit better, that's going to give us an overall measurement of 14". The distance that we have between the adjustment holes on center is going to be 1-1/4", that's going to be the same for all 6. Taking a measurement from the center of the hitch pinhole to the back of the upright bar it's going to measure 7". To the center of the adjustment holes to the center of the hitch pinhole it's going to be 8".

To the front of the unit to the center of the hitch pinholes is going to be 9". 9", 8" and 7". If you're using this in the rise position, it's going to offer a maximum rise of 13". If you have your head assembly at the lowest setting with this in the drop position it's going to offer a maximum drop of 9". It can adjust in increments of 1-1/4" since that's going to be our adjustment hole separation. That's going to do it for today's look at the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Shank.

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.

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

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

Quick shipping. Product as described. The box was partially ripped open, but its a huge chunk of steel in a cardboard box, no big deal. Went from a 1/2 ton Chevy to a 1 ton Ford, needless to say I needed a longer shank. It looks great, very happy. 381408

Wow! Placed the order, two days later it is in my hands! With free shipping! I am impressed with etrailer once again! The EQ90-02-4400, 9" drop shank appears to be of the same quality as the original Equalizer short shank. While I haven't been able to install the piece as yet, I have no doubt it will work flawlessly. 5 Stars Plus to etrailer. I always recommend etrailer to anyone needing TT parts or accessories. You will not be disappointed!! 609354

We received our drop hitch last week, and we were not disappointed! It is a well made, heavy duty hitch. We haven't used it as yet due to having surgery and not being able to put it on the truck, but we bought it to lower our present hitch that was too high to pull our camper. 379828

nice web site, easy to get around and find what I was looking for. I ordered a 9" drop for my Equalizer hitch and a correct size ball. They shipped as promised by etrailer. However the train had a derailment on it's way here. I sent an inquiry as to the where about of my package and they responded the next day with the train problem. I received an email and a phone call follow up from etrailer. I wasn't expecting this great customer service from them but was VERY PLEASED with the service. Got delayed a couple days NO PROBLEM for me. Looking thru the cataloge now for my next purchase. Thank You etrailer John 365433

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


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.

Review from a similar Equal-i-zer 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

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

  • Recommended Drop Shank for Equal-I-zer Weight Distribution System on 2017 Ford F-250 4x4
  • Since you have the "upside down V" it sounds like you need a shank that has a lower adjustability. If you have a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver then I recommend the Equal-i-zer Weight Dist Shank - 12" Long # EQ90-02-4400 if you want to stay brand loyal. Weight distribution shanks for your system can be interchangeable so you can use a different brand. I personally would go with the similar Curt # C17124 which is rated higher and at a good price point. If you have a specific drop...

  • Weight Distribution Shank to Adjust for Taller Height of 2019 Ford Pickup
  • Ford trucks are getting taller and this can sometimes cause towing complications. The good news is that weight distribution shanks are standardized for hole size and hole spacing. This allows them to be interchangeable between brands. Since you have a reducer sleeve in your 2-1/2-inch hitch you will have that many more to choose from since you can use either a 2-inch shank with the reducer or a 2-1/2-inch shank by itself. All of the WD shanks we offer appear on the page I linked...

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...

  • How to Determine Best Weight Distribution System
  • No, if you use a weight distribution system on your trailer that is rated higher than you need, your trailer will be bouncing. In order to choose the best weight distribution system you will first need to know your total tongue weight (TTW), which is the tongue weight of your fully loaded and ready to go trailer plus the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. The tongue weight is typically between 10% and 15% of your trailer's GVWR but you'll want to verify...

  • Equal-I-Zer Weight Distribution Recommendation for 2018 Mallard M245 Trailer
  • The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of the setup when it is loaded and ready to tow. This figure also includes the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. I attached a help article on determining tongue weight for you to check out as well. You will want the loaded tongue weight of your setup to fall right in the middle of the tongue weight range of the system you use. From the research I did on your...

Therefore, yes you will want to use a weight distribution system.

  • Your 2014 Ram 2500 Outdoorsman pickup could be fitted with either a 2-inch hitch or a 2-1/2-inch hitch. For a 2-inch Equal-i-zer shank use part # EQ90-02-4400 which offers 9-inches of drop. For a 2-1/2-inch hitch shank you can use part # EQ90-02-4900 but note this has 6-inches of drop only.

  • Equal-i-Zer Weight Distribution System Recommendation for 11.4k Trailer and Lifted Truck
  • Based on the tongue weight you listed having and needing a larger drop shank the Equal-i-Zer Weight Distribution system you'd want is the part # EQ37141ET which has a tongue weight range of 1,000 lb to 1,400 lbs. For lifted trucks like yours a larger drop shank like the part # EQ90-02-4400 would be your best option as it allows you to do drops up to 9 inches which is about right for a truck like yours with a 2 inch lift.

  • Can a Shank from a Different Manufacturer be Used with Equal-I-zer Weight Distribution
  • Weight distribution shanks are almost all the same though there are a few exceptions. The majority use 3/4 inch diameter holes that are spaced 1-1/4 inches apart on center. That is what the Equal-I-zer brand uses so you can use a shank from a different manufacturer. One of the longer ones is actually an Equal-I-zer model, # EQ90-02-4500, which is 18 inches long. I have included a link to a video of it for you. If you need one with more drop there are lots of options such as # EQ90-02-4400...

  • How to Find the Correct Drop When Using Weight Distribution System

First, make sure both your 2018 Ram 2500 and Keystone Hideout Travel Trailer are parked on level ground; you'll then want to measure from the ground to the top of the inside of your hitch receiver. Next, measure from the ground to the bottom of your trailer's coupler and find the difference between the two measurements, which is the amount...

The 2 inch WD shank that has the greatest range with a 13 inch Rise and a 9 inch Drop is part # EQ90-02-4400.

  • Can B and W Stow and Tow Adjustable Ball Mount BWTS10050B Do Up to 8 inches of Drop
  • The B and W Tow and Stow part # BWTS10050B can do up to 9 inches of drop so in that regard it would work well since you need up to 8 inches. But if you have a spring bar type weight distribution system this can't be used with it. It really can only be used as a standalone ball mount setup. If you are looking for a weight distribution shank that works with a Reese system and can do up to 9 inches of drop we have the Equalizer Shank part # EQ90-02-4400 which will work well.

  • Larger Drop Weight Distribution Shank Recommendation for 2015 GMC Yukon Towing Camper
  • Sounds like you just need a larger drop weight distribution shank for your WD system. This is a very common problem with newer vehicles as they make them taller and taller. The part # EQ90-02-4400 that you referenced would do a great job with this as it provides quite a bit more drop than most shanks.

  • Does the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System # EQ37101ET Include the L-Pin w/Clips EQ95-01-9430?
  • I was able to go out to the warehouse and check the # EQ37101ET weight distributions for you and I found that they all have the new snap pin like the image of the # EQ95-01-9430 you referenced. The shank that offers a larger drop for the Equal-i-zer system that is compatible with a 2 inch trailer hitch is the # EQ90-02-4400. I have linked it to this page for you to check out. It has a gross trailer weight of 14,000lbs, a tongue weight of 600lbs to 1,400lbs, and an overall length of...

  • Drop Shank Recommendation for Equalizer Weight Distribution for Taller Tow Vehicle
  • All you need is a lower shank so that your setup can be towed level. The part # EQ90-02-4400 will fit your Equalizer system and will allow you up to 9 inches of drop. That would be perfect since that's exactly what you said you need.

  • What Kind of Weight Distribution Shank Will Give a 9 Inch Drop
  • Comparing the height difference between your trailer and hitch receiver you're going to need a shank with about 9 inches of drop. The Equal-I-zer Shank # EQ90-02-4400 is going to be the only shank we have that will work for you. The Equal-I-zer will still work with the Curt TruTrack Weight Distribution System # C17500 with no problem. I have included a video showing the installation of the Curt system and a review video of the Equa-i-zer shank as well as a help article on "Common...

  • Should a 9 Inch Long or 12 Inch Long Shank Be Used with Weight Distribution and Ram Pickup Truck
  • Going with the longer weight distribution shank would not be a problem and the little bit of additional clearance could be beneficial for turning or potentially for lowering the tailgate. That is why I recommend the 12 inch shank, # EQ90-02-4400.

  • 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.

  • How Level Does Trailer Need To Be Using Weight Distribution
  • It's really going to depend on how far out of level you are. If you're within an inch or two of level, especially if it's nose-high, you'll be just fine. Turning off the auto-leveling system is not a bad ideal, if it keeps the rear of the vehicle at the correct ride height so the trailer tows level, or nearly level. Keep in mind-when you tow, you'll likely have cargo in the rear of your Yukon, which would likely cause the rear to squat a bit more than it is now. This will likely put...
