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.

Equal-i-zer Weight Dist Shank - 12" Long - 13" Rise, 9" Drop - 600 to 1,400 lbs TW - EQ90-02-4400

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (287 Customer Reviews)

Shank offers up to a 13" rise and a 9" drop for your Equal-i-zer weight distribution system. Measures 12" long and fits 2" x 2" trailer hitches.


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.


Great product at a reasonable price. Customer service was very helpful in determining the drop I needed and selecting the right shank.

The right shank for towing our Airstream.
Kerry - 11/25/2021


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.

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.

The part is working great.

Can't say how happy I'm am with my purchase experience, good price, quick shipping, and came just as it should. Actually came quicker than expected so was able to use the new truck to pull the camper with.


This is the offset that I have been looking for. It was difficult to find - except at e-trailer!


Perfect fit for my camper set up on my 21 Ram 2500


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.


Great quality and fast service.


It is excellent quality, the right size, and delivered very quickly. I am 100% satisfied.

Very well

Needed to lower the height of my hitch ball after upgrading to an HD pickup truck. This adapter did the trick!!


It worked out well.
Thank you for your
response time.


Good product. Came on time, and fits perfectly. Very heavy duty.

No problems. I have a heavy trailer 8,000 pounds. A lower quality hitch would not have served my needs.

Fast deliver, item as described.


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


Product showed up when promised with no issues. It's the exact drop shank I need for my lifted truck! Thank you!

Great and have had no issues with it!

in a word, SLICK
A must have.

Weight Distribution Shank was required to fit up my Grand Cherokee to Bullet trailer. found it necessary to cut -off bottom of shank3 0r 4 inches to achieve ground clearance. Fair amount of time to dial it in but worth it. Could not be happier with the results .


Heavy duty extended drop works for my new 2020 Ram 2500 which sits higher than my previous Ram 1500.
etrailer kept me informed of my order.


Ordered a longer shank for my lifted truck and it worked perfect.nice n level to pull the toy hauler travel trailer. No wobbles no sway perfect thx!


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.


Just what we needed to make our e2 sway/weight distribution system fit our new Chevy Tahoe. We are pulling a 1961 Aristocrat Land Commander and the Tahoe's receiver is about one foot higher than the receiver on our previous tow vehicle. This shank is built like a tank and made everything fit perfectly.


Had to cut an inch and a half off the end as it was occasionally dragging on the pavement. Was looking for a 7". Solid construction as it is made out of 2 solid pieces of steel stock.


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!!


Arrived early and was exactly what I needed to raise the hitch on my SUV to match up to the trailer hitch.


It was exactly what I needed for my truck with a 6 inch lift.
