Shock Absorbing Ball Mount

Cutaway views of the ball mount shank showing the polyurethane cushioning

Convert-A-Ball ball mounts are designed with a polyurethane interior that helps to absorb road shock to limit bouncing and vibration while you tow over rough terrain. It also reduces the slamming and banging that occurs during stops and starts. This helps to protect your vehicle's driveline, your hitch assembly, and your trailer's contents while you're towing.

This hitch works great, have pulled up to capacity, up to a dozen trailers a day, have small & large ball attached, easy to flip over to match trailer, cushion takes some of the roughness out of a stop, recommend it. 243614

That is how I like to shop, on the back porch sipping an ice tea instead of driving through traffic and wading through stores. Just received the product, looks great and excited about hooking the fast boat up to it and heading to the lake. 369141

This ball mount fits very smoothly, with virtually no "slop" when inserting into the truck's receiver. Don't know if this is the receiver or the ball mount that is made with good fit tubing, or both. The mount is clearly marked as to it's capacity. The "cushioning" effect of the mount is very subjective, but I have towed our trailer with load distributing that jerks all over the place. Some surging just cannot be avoided, but on the first trial run of about 15 miles the surging seemed reduced. On a side note, I have gone to this load bearing mount as opposed to the usual weight distributing system simply to avoid all the heavy hardware. I now have a F-350 long bed crew cab which very adequately tows with load bearing and it handles better than any tow vehicle-trailer combo I have ever owned. By the way, our travel trailer has a gross weight of 13,500 lbs and the tongue weight is 1350 lbs. The whole vehicle combo sits absolutely level. The rear suspension on the truck drops under the hitch weight so that the overload springs "just" pick up some load. The very long wheel base of my truck makes sway and sag a non-issue. I'm happy! 99956

I just received the Convert-A-Ball Ball Mount for 2-1/2" Hitches - 3/4" Rise, 2" Drop - 18,000 lbs - AMSCV-2 I also received the 2" ball mount for my old truck... They look to be well made... The hole to put a ball or drawbar pin is 1 1/4 " .....So I will be making a Bushing to bring it down to 1"...This will be better for my needs... 427340


Comments

I would recommend part # C21201
Curt Reducer Bushing for Ball Mounts - 1-1/4" to 1"
$2.35
to reduce your 1-1/4 diameter ball hole to a 1 diameter hole.

Still works well. Worth the purchase. If you are looking for a way to feel less jarring when start stop this product is worth a try.

Nice product, fits well. Works way better that using the 2" version and the adapter sleeve in my f450. Took all the slop out and my hitch mounted mud flaps don't wiggle around anymore. The only thing I don't like is there in not a convert-a-ball type system for this size. Received prompt service from etrailer. Thank you. 209458

I needed a 2.5 inch with very little drop for my 2017 F250 SD and a target 23.5 inch to top of ball for my trailer. Works great and has a good fit up with little movement of part in reciever. Appears well built and a lifetime part. 511421

This receiver hitch is the quietest I have ever owned. No more noise when going from stop to going again, and the quality of the product is good. 622069

by:

Works as it should. Cushions the movement of my Jeep that is being flat towed when I stop. It also dampens the sound that I don't even hear it in the cab. Shoot, it's so good that someone else helped themselves to my first one (read: stole) so I bought a second one. 588607

Awesome product! Yes the poly "cushions" work and make a huge difference. I pull a 10,000lb +/- equipment trailer on a 2 5/16 ball. Highly recommended for heavy trailers in traffic. Needless to say etrailer has the best price and makes on-line ordering a breeze. Shipped fast and well packaged. 365580

Still performing just like new. When I pull with other non cushion ball mounts it’s nightday difference.

Purchased this hitch to haul a 7x14 trailer full of goose decoys to Canada. Could not believe how nice to have no banging and jarring around on rough country roads. There were times you wouldn't have believed the trailer was behind us. Great product!! I would not hesitate to recommend to any one of my friends. 290585

Not an abundance of 2 1/2" ball mounts out there in any size much less the exact one I needed. This is it! Also has the cushion poly material at the pin area. This has greatly reduced the harshness and noise with metal to metal contact. This is a heavy duty piece of hardware. Rated at 18,000lbs...that ought to be enough. 118429

Easy Hauling Waited till I had put some miles on this hitch before doing a review as I was unsure of how well the cushioned hitch would perform, now done over 2000 miles towing 29ft cargo trailer with various weights and found that it performs very well under all conditions damps out most vibrations from the road and trailer and feels a lot better on the back of the truck than a standard solid hitch, especially at the weights and sizes a class v hauls would recommend this for anyone hauling larger size and weight tag trailers 5527

Review from a similar Convert-A-Ball Cushioned Ball Mount in Ball Mounts


I own a couple of these in different drops and really prefer them over solid mounts. The cushioning does help protect the driveline of the tow vehicle and removes the harshness sometimes related to towing a trailer. Not cheap but well worth it to me. 538491

Great! These are tough but easy on the tow vehicle. Still doing great even after a full year of pulling some fairly heavy loads. Recommended!

Super fast shipping as usual. Have not pulled anything over 5,000 lb yet. I assumed the insert on the draw bar would be bar stock - it's tubular. Will be interesting to see how that does dragging a 14,000 lb trailer to Alaska. If it doesn't egg out, I will be impressed. 269439

Ask the Experts about this Convert-A-Ball Ball Mounts
Do you have a question about this Ball Mount?


  • Is Sag Caused by Trailer Tongue Weight Considered When Choosing Ball Mount w/the Right Rise or Drop
  • At most the tongue weight of a trailer would cause about 1/2 inch to 1 inch of sag at the ball mount (give or take a little and different for every vehicle). But on a 2016 Ford F-250 the suspension is potentially beefy enough to limit the sag to even less than that. The trailer can be off of level one way or the other (high or low) by as much as 1 inch and still be considered level. For cushioned ball mounts that fit a 2-1/2 inch trailer hitch receiver we have the following options: #...

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for a Ford F450 with a 2-1/2 inch Hitch Opening
  • There are three ball mounts we offer that will work for the 2-1/2 inch hitch on your Ford F450 with a 2-1/2 inch opening. The problem that many encounter is that the Ford 2-1/2 inch hitches are very tight with round corners and many ball mounts like the Reese Titan Ball Mount # RP45323 that you referenced will not fit without modification. The ball mounts we have found to work on the Ford 2-1/2 hitches are the Cushioned Ball Mount # AMSCV-2, the Cushioned Ball Mount # AMSCV-4, and the...

  • Ball Mount Recommendation Rated for 14,000 Pounds Gross Trailer Weight on a Ford F-450
  • To determine the receiver size you have, I have included a link to an FAQ that will help. The Reese 2-1/2 inch Titan ball mounts like # RP45323 or the one found in # EBMK25318, tend not to fit the factory 2-1/2 inch receivers on Ford Super Duty trucks. You will need to use one of the Convert-A-Ball ball mounts. We have # AMSCV-6 with a 6 inch drop or 4-3/4 inch rise. We also have # AMSCV-4 with a 4 inch drop or 2-3/4 inch rise. And then we have # AMSCV-2 with a 2 inch drop or 3/4...

  • Using High Rise Trailer Ball to Achieve No Rise or Drop on Ballmount
  • When determining the required rise or drop of ball mount needed, there will be many instances where the available ball mounts will not match up exactly with the rise or drop needed. As long as the ball mount used places the trailer within 1-1/2 inches of level, you will be absolutely fine. Having the trailer above level is preferable to under level, as most vehicles will squat or settle a bit once the trailer is hitched to the vehicle. If the Curt # C40036 high rise 2-5/16 trailer...

  • The only 1-7/8 inch ball that we carry with a 1-1/4 inch shank is # 63017, but this is used for a pintle hitch combo hitch. What you can do is use a bushing like # F-2 to go from a 1-1/4 inch ball hole to a 1 inch. You could then use a ball like # 19260.

The most popular of the 3 we currently offer is part # AMSCV-6. It has a 4-3/4 rise and 6-inch drop. I included an FAQ and video reviews for you as well.

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for a 2013 Ford F-350 with Factory 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch
  • The OEM Ford 2-1/2 inch receiver has more rounded edges. Many 2-1/2 inch accessories, in this case ball mounts, have more squared off corners. This difference causes the squared off accessories not to fit. In some cases, some of the powder coating can be removed from the shank on the accessory as long as none of the metal is ground off. That could work on a ball mount like # 45123 since it has more rounded corners than something like # RP45323. If you use an accessory that has more rounded...

  • Ball Mount with 2-1/2 Inch Shank to Fit the Factory 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch on a 2009 Ford F-350
  • The Reese Titan accessories used to have more squared edges and the Ford Super Duty 2-1/2 inch receiver requires something with more rounded edges like # AMSCV-2. It still may be a tight fit and in those cases, usually if you remove some of the powder coat from the ball mount shank (not any of the metal) you can get those snug accessories to fit properly. But we have had confirmation from a customer with a 2011 Ford Super Duty that it does fit his 2-1/2 inch receiver.

  • Options for Long Ball Mount for a 2-1/2 Inch Hitch
  • You have two options, neither are ideal though. To get an extension 13 inches or more you are going to need to use a Titan Extension like part # RP45292. Only issue here is the minimum this extension this product can give is 24 inches, which may be too much. Then for a ball mount to go along with this extension you would want part # 4280 as this has a 2 inch drop like you requested. The other option you have would be a ball mount like part # AMSCV-2 which will fit your 2-1/2 inch hitch...
