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.

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

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

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

  • 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...

  • 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...

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.

  • How to Choose the Correct Shank for an Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System
    The general rule of thumb is that if the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the trailer is more than 50% of the GVWR of the vehicle, a weight distribution system is recommended. Therefore, yes you will want to use a weight distribution system. In order to choose the correct weight distribution system, you will need to find the total tongue weight (TTW) of your towing setup by adding the tongue weight (TW) of both your loaded ready to tow trailer and any cargo stored behind the rear...

  • Edge to Edge Dimensions on Husky WD Shank # HT30859

The Equal-i-zer # EQ90-02-4400 measures 12 inches long on the hitch receiver shank and 14 inches along the adjustment holes. The Curt # C17123 measures 11 inches long...

  • 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...

  • 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.

    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...

    The weight distribution shank we offer that has the most drop that fits a 2-1/2 inch hitch is the Curt Shank part # C17132 which has a drop of 8 inches. Depending on if you calculated the drop you need with the trailer's tongue weight on the hitch or not this could work. If you came up with 9 inches of drop with the tow vehicle unloaded 8 inches of drop might be right when the weight of the trailer is on the rear suspension. Otherwise we have a 2 inch shank with 9 inches of drop as the...

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. The 2-1/2 inch WD shank that has the greatest range with a 10 inch Rise and a 6 inch Drop is part # EQ90-02-4900.

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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Replacement Shank for Equal-I-zer 4,000 Pound Weight Distribution Systems
    For your 4,000 pound Equal-I-zer weight distribution system I recommend shank # EQ90-02-4340. It has the proper hole diameter to mount the head to the shank (5/8 inch). You can also use # EQ90-02-4240 or # EQ90-02-4140. The Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Shank # EQ90-02-4400 has the mounting holes with a 3/4 inch diameter. The head on your 4K Equal-I-zer system should be using 5/8 inch diameter bolts so it would not work with this shank.

The Equal-I-zer will still work with the Curt TruTrack Weight Distribution System # C17500 with no problem.
