Product arrived quickly and in good shape. Although the box was damaged, the shank was well wrapped and didn't seem to have any issues. Ordering was easy, and etrailer answered a couple of questions before I pulled the trigger, so overall the experience was outstanding. I wouldn't hesitate to order from them again. 502466

There is a little too much sideways play than I expected (of the insert into my receiver) , considering the cost of the unit. Other than that, I am happy with the hitch. 251468

Figured out on Saturday what type of anti-sway hitch I needed to order, receive and install by Wednesday night. Tried another site, they couldn't meet the deadline, turned to google and discovered etrailer. Called at 1 PM on Saturday and talked to Steve Z, he got the order placed, and promised to check the status and follow up with me on Sunday. Everything was delivered on Tuesday and that night the hitch was installed, a day ahead of schedule. I don't expect to have a high need for towing / trailering, but when I do I'll be checking and calling etrailer first. On a scale of 1 to 10 their customer service is a 15. 426870

I sought out a class V 2.5" x 2.5" drop shank because i upgraded from a Ram 1500 to a Ram 2500. The Ram 2500 sits quite a bit higher and the trailer was riding nose high. Etrailer carried the product I thought would resolve my issue, so i ordered it. I received the new drop down shank quickly. It dropped the ball on my new 2016 Ram 2500 to exactly where it needed to be. It is exactly what I needed.....fast delivery and excellent fit. Thanks George!!! 360027

It was exactly what I wanted and well worth the wait to get it. It removed a lot of movement in my hitch assembly. Anyone using a sleeve with a 2" shank should get this. Thank you again for helping me tow my camper easily. 361536

I ordered this Equalizer 4 point anti sway system without shank and added the 2 1/2 inch shank to fit properly on my new tow vehicle. All parts arrived in Canada within 5 days. I am very particular about setup. From the start of disassembling my old system to driving away with the new setup was over 3 hours. But it tows beautifully. Something I never said about my old spring bars with chains. This is the first time ordering from etrailer. They do a good job. 397311

When the original manufacturer of my Husky weight distribution hitch couldn't or wouldn't help me with my new truck requirements, I got a taller truck, etrailer's awesome customer service found a perfect alternative. Equalizer brand makes a 2.5 inch to 2 inch drop hitch shank and the kind folks at eTrailer were knowledgeable and helpful and found I exactly what I needed 422652



- EQ90-02-4900
by:

The Equalizer shank is exactly what we needed, our new F350 is taller so we needed more drop to tow our trailer level. I tried to order this from another company & eventually had to cancel the order due to numerous customer service issues. I called etrailer & Wayne was extremely helpful in the transaction. My husband really appreciated the speedy delivery of the item, as we needed the shank weeks ago. Thanks Wayne, Pam 373605

The drop hitch arrived in central Alabama in two days! And it was free shipping! Hitch was package much better than I expected. It was exactly as described online. I am using this on a stock 2017 F250 4x4, towing a Forest River Wildwood. Leveled out my camper perfect! My eaz-lift parts bolted right on. Thanks for a pleasant transaction with a personal touch from George J at etrailer.com. thanks! 549215



- EQ90-02-4900
by:

Purchased for my 2017 F250 with 2.5 inch receiver and equalizer 4 point sway control. Perfect fit. The top of my receiver is 22.5 inches, and this drops the base of the ball all the way to 16 inches on the lowest setting with the equalizer hitch head. Very heavy duty and just the shank itself weighs 30 pounds. If you are moving up from a 2 inch receiver, you will need a longer hitch pin. It's a beast and I have no doubt it will work for a LONG time. 503618

This Product works Great, make towing a large toy hauler almost as easy as just driving my truck. The sway bar holds the trailer stable, even when passing large trucks

Great Product! Perfect fit for my 2017 Ram 2500 with its 2 1/2" receiver. I was a little nervous about compatibility to my Re-Curv R3 hitch I use for our camper with our previous truck Ram 1500. Due to upgrading to a larger truck I was forced to replace the existing shank. After searching everywhere online including a ton of camping supply companies, this shank turned out to the be perfect fit! Just a piece of advice, I'd totally recommend buying this shank versus using a cheap sleeve that can extremely effect your towing negatively. Be safe and spend the extra dollars. Its totally worth it. Plus it looks pretty [email protected] on the new truck! RAM LIFE! 362495

Although the Quality of this item is great I ended up having to order another drop shank . This is listed as 6" of drop, but the Blue Ox Sway Pro head is 8" from the top of the ball to the bottom bolt. Which ends up with only 2" of total drop on the bottom hole. I have a 2018 Ram 2500 4x4 and needed 3 1/2 to 4" of drop to get my trailer level so I have now ordered the Curt C17132 which should get the extra drop. These are both for 2 1/2 " receivers. 653409

This worked great to get the hitch ball down to the right height on my 2016 Ram 2500 to our 26u Airstream. It is also 2.5” so no adapter was needed in my receiver. 642124

As advertised, let me hook up my Husky weight distribution hitch to my Ram 2500 without needing an adapter sleeve. Towed for 2500 miles this past summer and when I removed the hitch did not see any unusual signs of wear. Tongue weight on the trailer was just over 920lbs when weighed. 598606

I purchased this shank for my Ram 2500/ Lance rig to get enough drop for a level hookup. Worked out fine with a Drawtite hitch. Of course it is heavy ..... The shank is well made. 578866



- EQ90-02-4900
by:

This was exactly what I needed to get the correct height on my weight distributing hitch. The one that came with the hitch did not have enough drop for my 17 Ram 2500 4x4. It also is 2.5" to connect to a class V receiver without a sleeve. Shipping was fast and product was packaged very well. 577548

Extra drop worked perfectly. Appears to be well built. Just completed a 5000 mile trip pulling a trailer and everything functioned as it should. Only negative is the paint does not hold up well. 573183

We upgraded from a 2006 Silverado to a 2017 F250. The F250 has a larger receiver as well as it is taller, thus requiring a new shank for our equalizer hitch. We are pleased with the quality and finish but it is heavy!! 570517

Had the shank in 2 days after I ordered it. Perfect fit for my 2016 Dodge Ram. I was using the sleeve to fit my Ram and there was to much slop for my comfort so that’s why I ordered the larger shank. Excellent product and I highly recommend going with the larger shank instead of the sleeve. Money well spent. 538981

Got this so I didn't have to use the sleeve adapter on my 2018 Super Duty to reduce the 2.5 hitch. This worked great on my 12,000 lb. Equal-i-zer, enabled me to get the camper just right and no adapters required. 517122

No play now in my e4 . Reducer just didn’t feel right and noticed the hitch bumping a little when I stopped, decided to just do it right from the start and be satisfied. etrailer is great to use they have what you need and the shipping and tracking can’t be beat. This is a heavy duty shank . 477693

  • Weight Distribution Shank with 8 inch Drop for Equalizer System
  • We do carry a Curt weight distribution shank that offers 2 more inches of drop than the Equal-i-zer shank part # EQ90-02-4900 that offers a 6 inch drop. The Curt weight distribution shank for 2 1/2 inch hitches part # C17132 has a 8 inch drop and will fit into the weight distribution head that came with the Equal-i-zer system. The Curt weight distribution shank has the same hole spacing as the Equal-i-zer shank so they are interchangable. The majority of weight distribution shanks have...

  • Upgrading a 12K Equal-I-zer Weight Distribution System to a 14K
  • There area few differences between the 1,200 and 1,400 pound Equal-I-zer systems. The heads are different and the spring bars are different. If your tongue weight is over 1,200 pound then the 1,200 pound system is not rated high enough. When calculating tongue weight for weight distribution you go by the total tongue weight. This is calculated by taking the tongue weight of the trailer when loaded and ready to tow plus the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle....

  • Reducer Sleeve for Equal-I-zer Weight Distribution System in 2-1/2 Inch Receiver of 2016 Ford F350
  • The reducer sleeve does need to be a bit smaller than the interior dimension of the receiver or it could become stuck. Typically a bit of 'slop' between the shank and the receiver or in this case, the reducer and shank isn't much of a concern with a weight distribution system because the spring bars of the system are applying a good deal of upward leverage against the receiver. This is almost always enough leverage to prevent the shank from rattling around. Not in your case, however. Since...

  • How to Use an Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System on a 2017 Ford F-250 with a 2-1/2 Inch Receiver
  • There isn't an Equal-i-zer weight distribution system that directly fits a 2-1/2 inch hitch receiver. You can use a reducer, like part # 58102, as you said. Another option is to purchase a shank that will fit a 2-1/2 inch receiver. The Equal-i-zer Weight Dist Shank # EQ90-02-4900, for example, provides 10 inches of rise or 6 inches of drop. I've linked the selection for you so you can choose the correct rise or drop you need.

  • 2-1/2 Inch Shank for Fastway Weight Distribution on a Ford F-250 with 2-1/2 Inch Hitch Receiver
  • Fastway is made by Equal-I-zer so I recommend one of the Equal-I-zer 2-1/2 inch shanks: Shank # EQ90-02-4900 has a 10 inch rise or 6 inch drop Shank # EQ90-02-4800 has an 8 inch rise or 4 inch drop Shank # EQ90-02-4700 has a 7 inch rise or 3 inch drop I have linked a video review on one. The others will have the same features with the difference being the amount of rise and drop each offers.

  • Can a 2-1/2 to 2 Inch Reducer Sleeve be Used with Weight Distribution Systems
  • Generally speaking the use of a reducer sleeve does not decrease the capacity of a trailer hitch. However some hitch manufacturers may have a reduced capacity if a sleeve is used. There isn't a standard for all hitches and all reducer sleeves. It depends on the hitch and the sleeve. The weight distribution system may also have a reduced capacity which should be in the literature for your weight distribution system. The other option is to replace the weight distribution shank with one...

  • Weight Distribution Shank with the Most Amount of Drop for a 2-1/2 Inch Hitch on a 2014 Ram 2500
  • For a weight distribution shank that will offer the most drop and that fits a 2-1/2 inch trailer hitch receiver I recommend Equal-I-zer shank # EQ90-02-4900. It offers up to 6 inches of drop. This means that trailers with a coupler height of 17 inches will be off level by about 2 inches (the tongue weight will pull down the truck a little). The only way to get more drop is to use a reducer sleeve and a shank for a 2 inch hitch. However, some vehicle/hitch manufacturers will provide...

There are 3 Equal-I-zer options: # EQ90-02-4900 with 6 inch drop or 10 inch rise # EQ90-02-4800 with 4 inch drop or 8 inch rise # EQ90-02-4700 with 3 inch drop or 7 inch rise For some 2-1/2 inch hitches the use of a reducer sleeve such as # C45405 will reduce the capacity of the hitch so I would check on that first before getting a sleeve...

  • 2 1/2 Shank Recommendation for Use with the Husky Center Line HT32218 WD System
  • The Equal-i-zer Weight Dist Shank # EQ90-02-4900 would work well with your Husky WD System part # HT32218 and would fit your 2-1/2 inch hitch without the use of an adapter. For shanks that fit 2-1/2 inch hitches the # EQ90-02-4900 can do the most drop so it would be the best option we have.

  • Weight Distribution Shank for 2-1/2-Inch Hitch That Allows Increased Height Drop
  • Since weight distribution shanks are made to a common standard you can use any brand of 2-1/2-inch shank with your EAZ-Lift setup. Based on your dimensions you need a shank that will give you at least 4-inches of drop. The Equal-i-zer shank # EQ90-02-4900 that you referenced should work great since it gives up to 6-inches of drop (and so long as your actual tongue weight (TW) does not exceed its 1400-lb rating).

  • How to Use 2-Inch Weight Distribution & Accessories in 2-1/2-Inch Hitch on 2019 Ford F-250
  • You can go in either of 2 ways to use your Blue Ox Sway Pro 2-inch weight distribution hitch # BXW1500 in your new Ford truck that has a 2-1/2-inch hitch. One way is to keep using everything you already own and to simply add a hitch reducer sleeve like B&W part # BWRHXA2182 which slides into the 2-1/2-inch receiver and reduces it to the 2-inch size for your existing Sway Pro shank. If you already have other 2-inch hitch accessories like a cargo carrier or bike rack then the reducer sleeve...

  • Can Larger Shank Be Used with Fastway Weight Distribution Hitch
  • To use your 2-inch weight distribution setup in a truck that has a 2-1/2-inch hitch you can either add a reducer sleeve like # 58102 or # BWRHXA2182 to the hitch or you can change the shank to the larger size so it directly fits the 2-1/2-inch hitch. The linked page displays suitable 2-1/2-inch replacement shanks that will work fine with your WD system, such as # EQ90-02-4900 and # EQ90-02-4700.

  • Weight Distribution Shank Recommendation for Blue Ox Kit for 2-1/2 inch Hitch and More Drop
  • For a weight distribution shank that fits a 2-1/2 inch hitch that has a couple more inches of drop than the # BXW4018 you mentioned you'd want the Equal-i-Zer part # EQ90-02-4900. This shank also fits Blue Ox weight distribution systems like what you have as well.

  • Weight Distribution Shank for 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver with More Drop
  • For your 2-1/2 inch trailer hitch receiver, the shank with the most drop is the Equal-i-zer Weight Dist Shank - 2-1/2" Hitch - 10" Rise/6" Drop # EQ90-02-4900. This will give you 2 inches more drop than the # EQ90-02-4800 you referenced. Depending on your system you may alternatively be able to use a shank like the Reese Weight Dist Shank - Drop Only - 11" Long - 7-5/8", 8-5/8" Drop # RP3344 with a sleeve reducer like # 325-GH-007.

  • How to Determine Correct Shank for a Weight Distribution System and a 2014 Ram 2500
  • A properly rated weight distribution (WD) system will keep your trailer and your 2014 Ram 2500 level since it distributes the weight evenly across all of the axles in a towing setup. What you need to do is park your trailer and your Ram on a level surface and then measure from the ground to the bottom of your coupler (with the trailer level) and then from the ground to the top of the inside of your 2-1/2" receiver. Since you have a Ram 2500 you most likely need a shank with a drop. Simply...

  • Replacement 2-1/2 Inch Shank with More Drop for Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System
  • The Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Shank # EQ90-02-4900 features a maximum drop of 6 inches so it should work perfectly to keep everything level with your new Ram. The 2-1/2 inch shank is indeed compatible with your existing Equal-i-zer system and will hook right up to the head just like your existing shank. I have attached a short video review that you can check out as well.

  • Weight Distribution Shank with More Drop to Fit a 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver
  • I've linked our selection of weight distribution shanks for 2-1/2 inch hitch receivers. Most shanks are universal and will work with other brands of systems. As long as the holes are 3/4 inch in diameter and are spaced 1-1/4 inches apart they're interchangeable. Whether it's a shank for a 2 inch hitch or a 2-1/2 inch hitch the holes are normally the same. I've also attached an article to help you determine how much drop you need in case you don't already know.

  • Recommended 2-1/2 Inch Equalizer Weight Distribution Shank with More Drop
  • Based on the pictures you attached (thank you!) it looks like you have the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Shank # EQ90-02-4100 that allows for a drop of up to 3 inches from the top of the hitch receiver opening. The adjustment portion of the shank has an overall height of 9-1/2 inches, which matches up to what you currently have. The 2-1/2 Inch Equalizer Shank # EQ90-02-4900 that you referenced allows for a greater drop of up to 6 inches. It features a height of 11-1/2 inches on the...

I have attached photos of both of these shanks with dimensions shown you can check out.

  • Weight Distribution Shank for 2-1/2 Trailer Hitch Receivers
  • Most of our weight distribution systems do not come with a 2-1/2" shank. Some do but your options are limited at that point. The best solution I have for you would be to choose the weight distribution system you want without a shank, and use a 2-1/2" shank which is sold separately to allow you to use the system on your 2014 Ram 3500. The shank does not have to be the same brand as the weight distribution system you are using it on. The only thing you will need to know in order to choose...

  • Weight Distribution System Recommend for 1,000 lbs Tongue Weight with 6 in of Drop for 2.5 Hitch
  • The correct way to determine the amount of drop you will need is to measure from the top of the hitch opening to the ground like you mentioned but then on the trailer you will need to measure from the bottom lip of the coupler to the ground when the trailer is level. The difference between the two measurements is the amount of drop you would need. Based on the dimensions you listed you are most likely going to need a 5 inch drop. If you have a hitch with a 2-1/2 inch opening then a system...

  • Replacement WD Shank for a 14,000-lb Equal-i-zer System

  • Replacement 2-1/2-Inch Shank for Use with Fastway e2 Weight Distribution Hitch
  • Hitch reducer sleeves are the only type of hitch adapter that does not compromise weight capacity or strength so you can use any brand of 2-1/2 to 2-inch reducer sleeve along with your 2-inch Fastway weight distribution shank. You can see them all on the linked page. I like the B&W # BWRHXA2182 because it has a flared opening that keeps it from going too far into your hitch tube. If you do prefer to use a 2-1/2-inch shank you can choose from the Equal-I-zer models linked for you, such...

  • How to Measure to Find Weight Distribution Shank with the Right Amount of Drop to Tow Trailer Level
  • Measuring to find the right rise or drop needed to tow the trailer level is easy. First park the truck and trailer on level ground and uncouple the trailer from the truck. Use the trailer's jack to make the trailer level. Measure from the ground to the bottom of the trailer's coupler. Then measure from the ground to the top of the receiver opening on the truck. The height difference is the amount of drop you will need (since the truck is taller). I have linked a help article that explains...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System Drop Shank for 2-1/2 Inch Receivers
  • For your Ram 2500 with 2-1/2 inch receiver, the largest drop shank we have for your Reese round bar system is the Equal-i-zer Weight Dist Shank - 2-1/2" Hitch # EQ90-02-4900 which will get you the 6 inches of drop with a round bar system. The Reese Titan Weight Dist Shank # RP54977 is restricted to trunnion bar systems only so it won't work for your application. The only shank we have to give a round bar system more drop is the Gen-Y Torsion Weight Distribution Shank - 2-1/2" Hitches...
