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.

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

Ask the Experts about this Gen-Y Hitch Accessories and Parts

  • Does Gen-Y Torsion Weight Distribution Shank # 325-GH-1302 Fit Equal-I-Zer Brand Heads
    Yes, the Gen-Y Torsion Weight Distribution Shank # 325-GH-1302 that you referenced will work with an Equalizer weight distribution system. I attached a picture that shows an Equal-I-Zer brand head attached to this for you to check out as well.

  • Can Gen-Y Torsion Weight Distribution Shank be Used with Husky WD System
    The Gen-Y Torsion Weight Distribution Shank # 325-GH-1302 referenced in your question can be used with your existing Husky Weight Distribution System, as it is compatible with any standard system like this one. The heavy-duty rubber torsion flex cords will do definitely great job of reducing or eliminating shock transfer and bounce, which will offer great benefit considering the type of load you are hauling. From the center of the hitch pin hole on the shank, to the center of the adjustment...

  • 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...

  • How Does Cushioning of Gen-Y Torsion Weight Distribution Shank Work with Spring Bar Tension
    That's a really good question, but basically the cushioning movement of the Gen-Y cushioned weight distribution shanks like the part # 325-GH-1202 for a 2 inch hitch or part # 325-GH-1302 for a 2-1/2 inch hitch moves straight up and down and since the weight distribution spring bar tension is more like a fulcrum and "twists" for lack of a better term they both end up function just fine together. That's the simple answer at least.

  • Pole Tongue Adapter and Blue Ox Weight Distribution that Can Be Used B and B Deck Over Trailer
    The Blue Ox Pole Tongue Adapter part # BXW4023 does fit your frame dimensions and capacity so it would work well with the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control # BXW2000 which has a 20k capacity like you are wanting. The clamps would then go over the top of the pole tongue adapter and clamp to them. Then for a cushioned weight distribution shank you'd want the part # 325-GH-1302 for if you have a 2-1/2 inch hitch.

  • Is There a Cushioned Weight Distribution Shank that Fits 2-1/2 inch Hitches
    Sounds like you are wanting a cushioned weight distribution shank for a 2-1/2 inch hitch which we do offer, but the Curt Rebellion is not available for the 2-1/2 inch hitch size and also isn't compatible with weight distribution. So what you would want is the Gen-Y Torsion Weight Distribution Shank part # 325-GH-1302 which does fit this hitch size and uses torsion springs to provide the cushioning you are looking for. This also fits all of the standard weight distribution head brands....

  • How Does Gen-Y Torsion Adjustable Ball Mount Compare to Weight Distribution System
    The Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers # 325-GH-1324 that you referenced doesn't have the same features as weight distribution or sway control so it's hard to compare them. It will cushion the ride quality when you are towing but it won't distribute tongue weight up to the front axle of the tow vehicle like a WD system does and it won't really minimize sway like a sway control system would. So it depends on what it is that you are looking for. If you have a higher capacity...

  • 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...

  • 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 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...

  • Cushioned Shank for Blue Ox Weight Distribution System

  • 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...
