This unique weight distribution shank from Gen-Y Hitch has 8 mounting positions that can accept almost any weight distribution head assembly. This lets you easily adjust the height of your weight distribution system. This shank also has built-in shock absorption to ensure a safe, smooth towing experience. Using technology similar to that found in torsion trailer axles, the Gen-Y shank absorbs road shock, isolating any rough jarring or chucking at the connection point. This prevents the rough motion from transferring from the vehicle to the trailer and vice versa.


Built-In Shock Absorption for a Smooth Ride

Driving over bumps, potholes, and uneven terrain causes road shock, which can result in a rough, bumpy ride and even potentially damage your vehicle or trailer. This Gen-Y Hitch torsion shank is designed to absorb road shock at the connection point to create a safe, smooth ride. This is thanks to the internal construction of the shank, which is similar to that of a torsion axle.


Pivot points are built into the Gen-Y weight distribution shank. This allows for movement between the base, which slides into your vehicle's trailer hitch, and the vertical shank, which provides the connection points for your weight distribution head. When your trailer hits a bump, the vertical shank will move up or down accordingly.


torsion diagram

Built into the Gen-Y mount are tubes with inner bars that are surrounded by rubber cords. As the attachment points rise or fall, these inner bars twist inside of the tubes, attempting to follow the motion of the vertical shank. But the rubber cords prevent the bars from twisting too far. And as each bar turns, these cords compress to absorb the shock. This means that any shock experienced by your truck can be absorbed before it reaches your trailer, and the shock experienced by your trailer won't get transferred to your truck.


This type of shock-absorption system is easy to maintain. Just regularly apply grease to the built-in zerks to keep the components in working condition. No airbags to fill. No small parts to repair or replace. No hassle.


Multiple Mounting Positions for Easy Adjustment

adjustment points

This unique shank from Gen-Y Hitch includes 9 adjustment holes so that you can attach your weight distribution head in 1 of 8 different positions. With the 8 mounting positions, you have the ability to adjust the height of your weight distribution system to fit your application.


Easily Check Your Tongue Weight

scale

This shank features a built-in mechanical tongue weight scale. The highest arrow on the scale indicates the mount's maximum tongue weight (2,400 lbs). The middle arrow indicates no tongue weight (0 lbs). There must be a minimum tongue weight of 1,600 lbs for the built-in shock absorption to function. This means that the tongue weight scale's white indicator marker should be between the highest arrow and the arrow directly below it when you hook up your trailer to tow.

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the Gen-Y Torsion Weight Distribution Shank. Now, this torsion drop hitch is compatible with almost any existing weight distribution head assembly. The head assembly of your weight distribution system fits onto this area here, and it secures with the hardware that came with your head assembly. This area measures 2" wide. The adjustment holes are separated on center by 1-1/4", and they have a diameter of 3/4". The shank on the unit has two pinholes on it.

These pinholes have a diameter of 5/8". You can choose whatever one works best for your application. The shank is designed to slide into a 2-1/2" by 2-1/2" receiver opening.This unit features a 21,000 pound towing capacity, and a 2,400 pound tongue weight capacity. It features eight adjustable positions, so you can get your trailer as level as possible with your vehicle. That's always the best way to do it.

The drop and rise range is 7", and this can be used in either position, so you can use it in this position, which would be your drop. You could flip it over and use it in the rise position as well. It's fabricated with heavy-duty steel. It's made in the USA. It's precision milled and drilled for a perfect look and fit, and it features durable powder coat finishing to keep it safe from rust and corrosion.As you can see, this is no ordinary hitch.

It's actually a torsion hitch, so it has heavy duty torsion flex cords that are built into the hitch to eliminate shock transfer from the trailer to the towed vehicle. With rubber torsion hitches, only 10% of the trailer inertia transfers, compared to 100% using a hard connection hitch, so this system gives you much better control. This unit also helps reduce sway and trailer bounce. It helps increase braking control, and it reduces trailer and driver fatigue, so it keeps you and your contents safe.It has a low maintenance design, so there's no air bag or bearings, there's just a few grease zerks for easy lubrication when needed. You have two right here.

The unit comes pre-lubed. Then on the opposite end, you have two more. You can attach a grease gun, pump in the grease to keep everything working properly. Another neat feature is that it has this component right here. This is a built-in mechanical tongue weight scale, for balanced, safe loading. This allows you to get an idea of the tongue weight, so you can adjust your load if needed.Again, it is made in the USA. It's a really nice design. I did take a few measurements for you. I measured from the center of this hitch pin hole here, and I did a straight line measurement to the center of the adjustment holes, and got a measurement of around 12-1/8". From the back pin hole to the center of the adjustment holes measured about 13-5/8". When it comes to the warranty, we're looking at a 10 year warranty on all moving parts, and a lifetime guaranteed warranty on everything else. That's going to do it for today's look at the Gen-Y Torsion Weight Distribution Shank.

This thing was a waste of my money. It created a push/pull rubber band effect that made it un-usable. I called the manufacturer about the issues. They acknowledged that they have had this report from other users, but we're not willing to do a refund. All in all, very expensive, heavy, piece of scrap. 724906

  • 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...

  • Is Gen-Y Torsion Weight Distribution Shank Compatible With Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System?
  • I believe you were asking about the Gen-Y Torsion Weight Distribution Shank # 325-GH-1302 because there is not a Gen-Y hitch that fits your 2018 Ram 2500. If so, the answer is yes, you can absolutely use that shank with an Equal-i-zer weight distribution system such as the Equal-i-zer # EQ37101ET. You will need to find the best weight distribution system for your Rockwood 2507S. In order to choose the best system you will first need to know your total tongue weight (TTW), which is the...

  • 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...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System and Sway Bar for 3 Horse Trailer
  • Thanks for all the information and attempt to show me a comparable trailer. I was able to find one online to assist with the visual. For your trailer I recommend the Curt Short-Arm Weight Distribution System with Sway Control - Trunnion Bar - 15K GTW, 1.5K TW # C17422. This is based on the fact you already have the pop up brackets and the weights you mentioned for your trailer. This system already comes with the pre-torqued 2-5/16 inch hitch ball and it comes with the friction sway...

  • Availability of 2-1/2" Weight Distribution Shank That is 12" Long for Fastway System
  • If you are just looking for a typical shank for your Fastway # FA92-00-1000 or # FA94-00-1000 weight distribution (WD) system then the closest thing we have which will fit your 2-1/2" receiver is the shank # EQ90-02-4900, but it will only extend the WD head out 9". We do have the Curt shank # C17122 which sticks out 14" but it is for a 2" receiver so you would need to use your adapter like part # C45405. Another option is to use the Gen-Y Torsion Weight Distribution Shank # 325-GH-1102....

  • Longer Weight Distribution Shank to Tow with Tail Gate Down
  • We have a few options that may work for you. You didn't say exacty how much longer you need the shank to be and I don't think we have one that fits every piece of criteria you're looking for but here's some ideas that could fit: Part # RP63971 is 14 inches long overall. The drop is only 6-1/2 inches and that's with a round bar weight distribution system. If you have a trunnion bar system it won't work because the drop is only 4-3/4 inches. It's also for 2 inch receivers so you'll...
