Towing can be brutal, especially when your setup is outfitted with standard, metal-on-metal components. Steel and aluminum can only absorb so much vibration and chucking, so every time you hit a bump in the road, that shock gets transferred to the rest of your rig, leaving it vulnerable to wear and tear. Another unfortunate side effect is an uncomfortable ride for you and your passengers.


Protect your truck and trailer from road shock, vibrations, and rattling - and stay comfortable while you drive - with the shock-absorbing Curt RockerBall hitch ball.


Shock Absorbing ShockDrop Technology

Curt RockerBall with SockDrop Technology

The RockerBall hitch ball features Curt's innovative ShockDrop technology, which is engineered to suppress vibrations and rattling while you're towing. When you hit a bump, the ball compresses around the flexible, polyurethane core. This durable material absorbs excess shock at the coupling point so that it doesn't transfer from the truck to your trailer or vice versa. The result is increased control and comfort as you tow, as well as less wear and tear on your towing setup.


Premium Construction

Curt RockerBall Construction

This hitch ball is built to last with its forged steel construction and durable powder coat finish. The flexible, shock-absorbing polyurethane core withstands extreme heat for long-lasting performance, and the chrome-plated ball resists corrosion.


Curt RockerBall Zerk Fitting

The built-in zerk allows you to lubricate the isolator core when necessary, ensuring quiet and trouble-free operation.

Ball is not mounted. Pictures and videos show ball mounted. And when I have bought a “kit” in the past, the ball was mounted. I can’t attach the ball myself and only reason I purchased from eTrailer was that pictures implied that the ball would be mounted.


Comments
This ball mount comes to us from the manufacturer as a kit, without the ball mounted to the ball mount. We do have a ball mount with a 4 inch that comes with the ball torqued. It is part # C45154

Nice solid piece with weight. The only issue I have is that the ball is only secured down with a bolt and not lockable to prevent theft.

Changed over from the conventional Ball. Noticeable difference after installing Rockerball. Makes the ride quieter and when braking no noises and no trailer play when braking or accelerating. recommended Product.

Works Great. No wear or tear on the Rockerball and I’ve used it well over 25 times. Good as Mew.

Review from a similar RockerBall in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Received product before due date however, both our WD Hitches do not have the standard piece to allow the Anti-Rotation Plate to be useful. Pictures attached. Checking with etrailer to see what can be done before modifying either the ball or the hitches. Only other issue was packaging, it was well packed on bottom side but not on top which allowed the product to distort the box it was shipped in but it did come fully in tact with no visible harm. Mentioning this for future delivery of such items.


Comments
I was able to contact Curt and the Curt RockerBall is not compatible with weight distribution systems. It is only compatible with a ball mount that has a 1-14 diameter ball shank hole.

Review from a similar RockerBall in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


So I’ve been wanting the rocker ball for a while now and I’ve finally bought it. I bought the kit and it comes with a regular curt hitch, anti rattle kit, and the Rocker Ball. Construction seems solid on all Items. The hitch did arrived with a small area the size of half a penny of the powder coating chipped. I think it might’ve occurred during transit. Installation is fast BUT and a big BUT is very difficult to keep the rocker ball aligned to the hitch while you are torquing the nut. Mine ended up being noticeable sideways when I finished torquing it. I had to try it a couple of times and even then I couldn’t torque it all the way without 1. The rockerball assembly going sideways and 2. Without the tabs on the metal bracket bending.( one corner did bend. Anyways seems like a good product and if you don’t care of the Rockerball not being sorta aligned ( I honestly think that it shouldn’t be of fwhen fully tightened because then the rocker ball is not going to move straight back and straight forward) then I supposed it’s ok... If you are like me that gets bothered by details like this then find something else. I would’ve returned it but I scratched the hitch trying to get the Rockerball sorta aligned. Anyways take my experience with a grain of salt and good luck.

Review from a similar RockerBall in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Good idea, though actual towing feels chaotic. Pulling a 4,500 pound camper trailer with a F150 - Max Tow Package and this hitch causes the trailer to surge back and forth when braking, accelerating and/or rolling over bumps in the road. I don't know if my hitch is defective or not, but I will not be using this hitch anymore. The other issue is, when torquing the ball hitch to the specified 450 ft/lbs - the flanges that are supposed to hold the ball in place bent and I had to find an alternative to secure it from turning.

Really delighted at fast delivery and quality of product as well as ease of installation. Worst part was getting old bolt off but was my kind of switch-over and I needed the extra 1 1/2 inches because I was a little heavy on the tongue for my boat. Would recommend

Ask the Experts about this CURT Trailer Hitch Ball Mount



  • Will Curt RockerBall Interfere with Surge Brakes
    The Curt Rockerballs like the # C43KR will not interfere with your surge brakes. The movement they allow would not prevent the inertia of your vehicle applying the brakes from activating your surge actuator.

  • Rust Proof Adjustable Ball Mount w/ 5 Inch Drop
    For a rust proof ball mount you're going to want the Rapid Hitch Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mount Kit w/ 2 Greaseless Balls - 5-1/2" Drop item # AM3405. This adjustable ball mount has a 5-1/2" drop and 6-1/2" rise. It also has a two ball combo of 2" and 2-5/16" for hauling different trailers. The greaseless nylon cap allows for easy rotation between ball and coupler when towing this will help with rattle.

  • Weight Distribution System for Leveling Tacoma and Utility Trailer Under Heavy Load
    You can always adjust your ball mount an inch or two higher than you normally have your ball mount when you know your trailer's going to be loaded down. If you are wanting to level out your 2004 Toyota Tacoma and utility trailer when it is fully loaded you will need to use a weight distribution system like the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control - Clamp On - 8,000 lbs GTW, 750 lbs TW item # BXW0750.

  • Gen-Y or Curt RockerBall For 300-400 lb Tongue Weight in 2 Inch Hitch
    For your tongue weight, you are right about the Gen-Y Glyder like # 325-GH-12001 not being the best option as that requires a tongue weight of at least 400 lbs to reap the benefits. So for your tongue weight below that, I recommend the RockerBall for the best shock absorption. The Convert-A-Ball and its polyurethane interior won't give you as much cushioning as the RockerBall (which is not compatible with the Convert-A-Ball or other cushioned ball mounts), which is why I like it more....

  • Compatibility of Gen-Y Glyder Shock Absorbing Ball Mount With Surge Brakes and Lower Tongue Weight
    There will be no issues with using surge brakes along with the Gen-Y Glyder Shock Absorbing Ball Mount for 2" Hitches - 6" Drop - 7K # 325-GH-12005. Also, the Glyder can be used with a lower tongue weight and an empty trailer. The only problem is you need to be at the 4-700 lb range in order to benefit from the built-in shock absorption. If your loaded tongue weight is going to be 250-300 lbs then I would not recommend using this ball mount. Instead, I would recommend the Curt RockerBall...

  • Is The Curt RockerBall Anti-Rattle Towing Kit # C43KR Available With a 2-5/16" Hitch Ball?

  • Why is the Rise Measurement Different From the Drop Measurement on Ball Mounts
    The reason why ball mounts like the # EBMK4 have a different rise and drop measurement is because of the way they are measured. Rise is the distance from the top of the shank to the top of the ball platform when the ball mount is oriented for greater coupler height. Drop is the distance from the top of the shank to the top of the ball platform when the ball mount is oriented for lower coupler height. Both are measured from the top of the shank. The reason for this is because you use the...

  • Recommended Rise for Ball Mount on 2022 Subaru Outback Wilderness Towing Escapod Topo
    The Curt RockerBall Anti-Rattle Towing Kit # C43KR takes the additional height of the base of the RockerBall into account for the listed 4" rise and 5" drop. I have attached an image below showing how it is measured. Typically, you find the correct rise and drop by measuring the distance from the ground to the top of your receiver hitch opening and subtracting the distance from the ground to the bottom of the coupler. This should be done with your vehicle loaded for accuracy, you do not...

  • How To Prevent Sag/Squat While Towing or Hauling with 2021 Ram 1500
    If you are experiencing sag while towing then we have some great options for a 2021 Ram 1500. This is a common problem even for those towing within their capacity. The most popular fix and what I recommend is installing a set of suspension enhancements. These are going to beef up the rear end of the truck while towing or hauling so you won't have as much sag/squat and the issues associated with this. The best type of enhancement is an air bag kit as you can adjust the pressure for your...
