Video Transcript for Fastway Weight Distribution FA92-02-4214 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Fastway E2 Weight Distribution Shank. This is designed for use with Fastway E2 Weight Distribution Systems. It can be used in either the drop or rise positions. It's going to be constructed of a sturdy steel construction, and the unit's going to feature a really nice black powder coat finish on it, to keep it safe from rust and corrosion. When you're installing this in your hitch, you slide it in the receiver tube, line up your hitch pin holes, and secure with a hitch pin and clip or hitch lock. The pin holes on this unit will accept a standard 5/8" diameter hitch pin.

Your hitch pin and clip or hitch lock are sold separately, so if you're in need of something like that, you can check out options here at etrailer.com. The product is made right here in the USA. It's designed for a 2" by 2" trailer hitch receiver. When it comes to the gross towing weight, we're looking at up to 12,000 pounds, maximum tongue weight up to 1,200 pounds. If you're using this with a round bar system, and you have the unit in a rise position, with the head assembly at the highest setting, this is going to give you a maximum rise of 7-1/2", measuring from the inside top edge of the receiver tube of your hitch, to the top of the ball platform. If you're using the drop position, and you do those same measurements with the head assembly at the lowest setting, you're looking at a maximum drop of 6".

With a trunnion bar system, maximum rise is 9-1/2", maximum drop is 4". The adjustment holes on the unit, see all those line up right there, those are separated on center by 1-1/4" apart. It's going to feature 6 holes, so the 1-1/4" measurement is your incremental height adjustment for this shank. If we take a measurement of the overall length, measuring from very front to very back, you can see that the unit measures 12" long. If we measure from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the adjustment holes, we're looking at right on 8", to the front is 9", to the back of the bar is 7". From the center of the hitch pin hole to the brace right here, that's going to give us a measurement of about 4", and then from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest point of the weld there for that support, that's actually going to measure 3-1/2". That's going to do it for today's look at the Fastway E2 Weight Distribution Shank..

I recently put a 5” lift and 35s on my 2012 Dodge Ram 3500. I needed a drop shank for the camper. This was the perfect drop for my setup. Put everything together and pulled my camper from NC to PA with no problems. Ordered on Saturday with 3 day shipping and received Wednesday. Very happy with my purchase. 528270

I have been using this for about a year now to pull my 32 ft RV. Works great on my truck 2015 ram with 6in lift and 35in tires. I even have 1 more drop adjustment left on the hitch if your truck is higher. 642812

My truck is lifted 12" between the larger tires and lift kit. Needed this longer shank in order to get my weight distribution hitch to level the RV I pull. Extremely heavy duty and built to last your lifetime. It won't disappoint and will handle any trailer you put behind it. 448124

Ordered this product on Tuesday, it was picked the same day and shipped out. I had my trailer set up by Friday. Great price and great service! This shank was exactly what I needed to get down to the trailer's 18" ball height using the receiver which came with my 2016 F250 4x4. Quality is great just like that of the Fastway e2 weight distribution hitch I purchase earlier. 320062

Product works as advertised. The distribution shank that came with the "Fastway e2 Weight Distribution w/ 2-Point Sway Control - Round - 10,000 lbs GTW, 1,000 lbs TW" worked fine for towing with a Ford Expedition. When I bought a 3500 HD, the original distribution shank wasn't long enough due to the difference in height of the vehicles. Swapping out the distribution shank was relatively easy. Simply follow the directions for setting and leveling the hitch. 57517

  • Recommended Drop Shank For Fastway E2 Weight Distribution System For 2-3 Inches Additional Drop
  • For your extra drop needed with your Fastway E2 weight distribution system, I recommend the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution Shank - 12" Long - 9-1/2" Rise, 4" Drop - 1,200 lbs TW # FA92-02-4214 this will give you a little under 2-1/2 inches of additional drop from your standard shank. If you need more, I recommend the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution Shank - 12" Long - 12-1/2" Rise 6-1/2" Drop - 1.2K TW # FA92-02-4315 which will give you the additional drop you need.

  • How Do I Know What Drop Is Needed For My Lifted Ford F-250 With Bigger Tires?
  • The Fastway e2 Weight Distribution w/ 2-Point Sway Control - Round - 10,000 lbs GTW, 1,000 lbs TW # FA94-00-1061, has a shank that will drop 1-5/8 inches from top of hitch receiver opening, so if you measure from the ground to the top of that inside receiver opening and then subtract the height to keep your trailer level, you will know what drop is needed from your weight distribution system shank. For a Fasway system, I recommend the Equal-i-zer Weight Dist Shank - 12" Long - 10" Rise,...

  • Shank with More Drop for Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System
  • We have a couple of Fastway weight distribution shanks that could work for you. First we have # FA92-02-4214. It offers up to a 4 inch drop. For a little bit more adjustability we have # FA92-02-4315 which has a maximum 6-1/2 inch drop. The shank that came with your system offers up to 1-5/8 inches of drop so either shank above will work since the new truck is just 2 inches higher than the old one.

  • Fastway Weight Distribution for a V-Nose Trailer with Limited Space on Frame
  • With a trailer weighing 3,820 pounds the tongue weight will be in the neighborhood of 380 to 573 pounds which is 10 to 15 percent of the gross trailer weight. But to that you also need to add in the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. So for example if you had 100 pounds of gear behind the tow vehicle rear axle that would make the tongue weight 480 to 673 pounds. The minimum tongue weight for the Fastway system, # FA94-00-1033, to be effective is 400 pounds....

  • Towing Set Up for a 2016 Honda Odyssey
  • To tow your 2014 Coachmen Clipper BH, you will need a Hitch # 75270, Weight Distribution System # FA94-00-0600 and a Brake Controller # 90885 to power your Clipper's Electric Drum Brakes. I recommend the Draw-Tite Hitch # 75270 for your 2016 Honda Odyssey because it is the best value and you are able to use a weight distribution system with this hitch. With a weight distribution system you can tow 5,000 lbs. and it has a tongue weight capacity of 500 lbs. But you will not want to exceed...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution Shank for Drop with Fastway e2 System
  • Because the top of the receiver opening can have different size collars from hitch to hitch, we measure from the top of the inside opening to make sure it is consistent. I've attached an article to assist. The Fastway e2 Weight Distribution w/ 2-Point Sway Control - Trunnion # FA92-00-0450 has a maximum rise from the ball platform of 6 inches, and maximum drop of 2 inches and adjustments 1-1/4 inches in between. If the top of your receiver opening is 20.5 inches and the bottom...

  • Which Weight Distribution Shank is Needed for a 2013 Chevrolet Silverado
  • In order to decide which shank you need for your Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System you will first want to measure from the ground to the top inside edge of the receiver tube opening on your tow vehicle. The distance from the ground to the bottom of the coupler on your trailer while level will then be subtracted for the above measurement in order to find out how much rise/drop you need to look for in a new weight distribution shank. With that being said, the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution...

  • Adding a Second Weight Distribution Head and Shank for a Fastway Weight Distribution System
  • Yes, we do have a head only that will work great for you. It is the replacement Fastway e2 head # FA92-02-1255 for 6K to 12K rated systems or # FA92-02-0410 for the 4.5K system. This head is the exact same as the ones that come in the full kits. You would have to use a Fastway head in order to use the Fastway spring bars. Another brand head will not work. You will also need replacement hardware kit # FA92-02-9600 since the above heads do not include this hardware. For a second shank...

  • Diameter of Holes on Fastway e2 Weight Distribution Shank part # FA92-02-4214
  • Yes, the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution Shank part # FA92-02-4214 that you referenced does have the standard 3/4 inch diameter holes that are 1-1/4 inches apart. This shank fits nearly all standard weight distribution heads from a variety of brands like Curt, Reese, Pro Series, Equal-I-Zer, Husky etc.

  • Fastway e2 Weight Distribution w/ 2-Point Sway Control - Trunnion - 6,000 lbs GTW, 600 lbs TW Item # FA92-00-0600 weighs approximately 75 pounds when you add a ball such as # A-90 for a 2 inch or # 19286 for a 2-5/16 inch. Keep in mind that the weight of the weight distribution you use is not factored in to the total tongue weight. To choose a weight distribution system you will need to go by the total tongue weight of the set up. This is calculated by taking the tongue weight of the...

  • Shank with More Drop for a Fastway Weight Distribution System and 2014 Ford F-150
  • Yes there are alternate weight distribution shanks that offer more rise or drop than the one that came with your Fastway system # FA92-00-0800. Shank number # FA92-02-4214 offers up to 4 inches of drop but it is measured differently than how you have measured. Rise or drop needed in a ball mount or shank is measured as follows: Park the truck and trailer on level ground and disconnect the truck from the trailer. Then measure from the ground up to the top of the hitch receiver opening...

  • Weight Distribution System Shank with At Least 6 Inches of Drop
  • To determine the correct rise or drop for a trailer you want to measure from the inside top of the receiver tube like you did. Then you want to measure from the bottom of the trailer's coupler to the ground. Both will need to be parked on level ground for a true measurement. Then you figure the difference. The shank that is included with the Curt MV Weight Distribution System # C17052 you have has a maximum drop of 2-1/2 inches. For a shank with 6 inches of drop # FA92-02-4214....

  • Shank with More Drop to Tow Trailer Level with Husky Center Line Weight Distribution System
  • The Husky Center Line weight distribution system # HT32218 uses a shank with 3/4 inch diameter holes that are spaced 1-1/4 inches apart on center. You will be able to use a shank with the proper amount of drop even if it is from a different manufacturer. Fastway shank # FA92-02-4214 has a maximum drop of 4 inches compared to the 1-1/4 inch max drop of the Husky shank so it will get you nearly 3 inches lower. For a little more adjustability you can use Reese shank # RP3215 which has...

  • Longer Shank Needed for Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System
  • If the shank that came with your Blue Ox SwayPro doesn't allow you to at least be within 2" of your coupler height then you will need to use a different shank. The Fastway e2 shank, part # FA92-02-4214, is a little longer than your current shank but that won't hurt anything. Most importantly it has 2 more inches of drop for a total of 4 inches as opposed to the 2 inches you currently have. This will allow you to properly setup your weight distribution system.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution Shank for 4 Inch Drop with Fastway e2 10,000 lb System
  • If you need exactly a 4 inch drop, then you will want the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution Shank # FA92-02-4214, but if you need just a little more than that you will want # FA92-02-4315 which will give you up to a 7 inch drop with your Fastway e2.

  • Needing Dimensions on the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution Shank
  • The measurement from the top of the Fastway e2 Shank, # FA92-02-4214, to the center of the top first hole is 3-5/8 of an inch. Each hole after this first hole will be an 1-1/4 inch apart. The last hole or the bottom hole furthest from the hitch shank measures 1-5/8 of an inch from the bottom of the arm to the center of the bottom hole. I physically measured the part and found the measurements that are listed on the product page to be true and correct.

  • Shank with More Rise/Drop than What Comes with Fastway Weight Distribution Systems
  • If you need a few more inches of rise or drop the shank you would want is the part # FA92-02-4214 which has a height of 11-1/2 inches instead of 9 inches like what you said your current one has. I attached a picture that has the dimensions of this shank for you to check out as well.

  • Recommendation For Weight Distribution Shank With Maximum Height Of 12-1/2 Inches
  • There are shanks like the Curt Weight Distribution Shank, Item # C17123, with a maximum length of 12-1/2 inches but they are not exactly the same. The Fastway e2 Weight Distribution Shank, Item # FA92-02-4214, is one of those that is similar and has a maximum height of 11-1/2 inches. Other options are available and I am attaching a link to our available inventory for you to check out.

  • Is 8 inches From Bottom of Weight Distribution System to Ground Enough Clearance
  • Eight inches from the ground to the bottom of your weight distribution shank would be fine for most situations but like you've experienced turning into inclined driveways can cause it to drag. Your trailer must sit pretty low to call for your shank setup to sit that low. It might be worth looking into raising your trailer suspension so that your shank settings could be a bit higher.

  • Distance From Top of Fastway Shank # FA92-02-4214 Down to First Hole

  • Will a Fastway Weight Distribution Shank Work with a Reese WD System
  • Yes, the Fastway Weight Distribution Shank part # FA92-02-4214 that you referenced will work with Reese weight distribution heads. Most systems (including this one), use 3/4 inch holes that are 1-1/4 inches apart so they can be used on various different setups.

  • Are Trunnion Bars for Reese Strait-Line 800 lb and 1,200 lb Systems Interchangeable
  • Yes! The trunnion bars for the 1,200 lb and 800 lb Reese Strait-Line weight distribution (WD) systems use the same head unit so they are interchangeable. I recommend going with the 12K system # RP66074 since it already has the tongue weight (TW) range of 600 lbs - 1,200 lbs and then getting the 400 lb - 800 lb TW bars # RP22225 when you need them. Please note that the trunnion bars come in a single unit so you need to purchase a quantity of 2 for your WD system. The cams that come with...

  • Weight Distribution Shank with Less Drop than Fastway Shank # FA92-02-4315
  • Sounds like you have the FastWay E2 shank part # FA92-02-4315 which is a 12 inch long shank that can do 12 inches of rise and 8-1/2 inches of drop The part # FA92-02-4214 is a similar shank that would give you a few more inches of ground clearance and would not hang below the head of the system like your current one is doing.
    view full answer...

  • Can a Shank with More Drop be Used with Fastway Weight Distribution System FA92-00-0450
  • Yes, you can use either shank, # FA92-02-4214 or # FA92-02-4315. The head from your system, # FA92-00-0450, will fit, the holes are the same diameter and have the same spacing. So with either of those shanks you will be good to go.
