45949 Curt Rebellion Shock Drop Dimensions

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 Rebellion XD ball mount.


Shock Absorbing ShockDrop Technology

Curt ShockDrop Technology

The Rebellion XD ball mount features Curt's innovative ShockDrop technology, which is engineered to suppress vibrations and rattling while you're towing. It can even help limit sway. When you hit a bump, the ball mount compresses around the built-in, flexible polyurethane core. This durable material absorbs excess shock 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.


Unlike other shock-absorbing systems, which use air bags that require constant monitoring or bearings that are subject to excessive wear, the Rebellion XD is nearly maintenance-free. And it's tested for thousands of cycles to ensure lasting efficiency.


Adjustable Height

Curt Adjustable Ball Mount

The Rebellion is built with an adjustable shank that lets you raise or lower the ball platform to get the rise or drop that you need for your setup. No more swapping out ball mounts to tow different trailers.


To adjust the height of the Rebellion XD ball platform, remove the 2 stainless steel pins and clips and slide the platform along the shank to the desired position. Six positions allow for plenty of versatility so that you can use this ball mount with all of your towing setups. Re-insert the pins once you've found the correct height and replace the clips to secure them in place.


Premium Construction

Curt Ball Mount Premium Construction

The Rebellion XD is built to last with its solid carbon steel construction and premium teridium finish. The flexible, shock-absorbing polyurethane core withstands extreme heat for long-lasting performance. Stainless steel hardware provides superior durability and corrosion resistance.


Curt Ball Mount Grease Zerk

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

I bought this hitch to reduce chucking and bouncing when towing a 3500# boat with a Suburban. Many concrete roads where I live, lots of uneven surfaces and expansion joints. This hitch is a night and day improvement over my old hitch. Much less bounce and no more rattle. Much more comfortable ride. High quality construction with stainless steel hardware. Very pleased with the ride improvement.

This hitch works great. Pulling a very heave horse trailer that I've been pulling for 15 years with a few different trucks I can tell a huge difference. The ride is deffients smoother and quieter too. I should've bought one of these years ago.

I haven't actually used it yet, but I have unpacked it and checked it out. Very heavy duty and I have no doubt it will perform well. It also showed up 1 day before it was projected to!

High quality product! Well built and engineered - appears to be worth the investment. Looking forward to a proper test run. As always, excellent service from the folks at etrailer.

Love the hitch. Towed a car from MD to WA and a truck from MN to WA. I loved how it absorbed the shock when starting/stopping. The adjustability is also a handy feature to deal with different trailers.

Hitch is built strong. It definitely takes out some of the jerks & bumps when pulling a trailer over a regular hitch! I pull 3 or 4 different trailers so would like the hitch to drop 1 or 2 inches more but it still works great for a majority of my pulling. It would be nice to be able to switch ball sizes easier. Overall the hitch works great & I use it for most of my pulling. It is easier to fill the grease zit when the hitch is off. Used for over 4500 miles! Worth the money!

The folks at etrailer.com were very helpful and professional in assisting me obtain an alternative to my initial order which was on back order until December due to the Covid-19 virus. I initially ordered the Curt Rebellion XD Shock-Absorbing Adjustable Ball Mount - 2" Hitch - 6-1/4" Drop - 15K with a 2" and a 2 5/16" stainless steel balls. Due to their diligence I was able to learn of the backorder status immediately. Consequently, they were able to provide a work around (chrome balls as opposed to stainless steel). While their dedication facilitated on-time delivery saving the day. I not only recommend them, but I will definitely shop with them again.

Review from a similar Rebellion XD in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


It’s a beast! Installed it n pulled my dump trailer no more rattling jerking nosies etc, wish it was 20lbs lighter my only complaint, The locks could be better I won’t be leaving the hitch installed, the locks are light weight n I believe a hammer will break them off, curt needs to use steel or stainless steel for the locks ( body of locks)

Review from a similar Rebellion XD in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Thank you etrailer for this great hitch! I did some research on this hitch and etrailer had the product in stock, and offered free shipping. I ordered the product on a Monday evening and received the product on a Wednesday afternoon. That is 1 day sooner than I was told. [online vendor] offered this product,but wanted $[XX] for shipping and wouldn't be shipped until 8/20/21. This hitch tows my 16 foot 14,000 pound dump trailer with zero problems, and as smooth as butter. Thank you etrailer!

Have owned the shock absorbing hitch for approximately 1 year and have had no problems. It’s easy to adjust and set up and I feel that it definitely “cushions” the harshness of today’s highways. Great product!

I have been looking for this product for years! Finally, no more jarring, bumping, or rattling of my teeth! I should have known etrailer would carry such a great product. Pulling my trailers empty or full of equipment has completely changed for the better.

Ask the Experts about this Curt Trailer Hitch Ball Mount

  • Does The Curt Rebellion XD Shock Absorbing Adjustable Ball Mount Require A Minimum Tongue Weight
    There is not an exact set minimum tongue weight for the Curt Rebellion XD Shock Absorbing Adjustable Ball Mount w/ 2" part # C45949-22516 however it is not going to be very effective on a light weight trailer. We have asked Curt before about lightweight trailers between 2k and 5k and they do agree there won't be enough tongue weight to compress the cushioned isolator so you would essentially be paying for something you can't use. I recommend to use the Convert-A-Ball Dual-Cushioned part...

    We do have an option for you, though there isn't a standalone cushioned ball mount like the Curt Rebellion XD Shock Absorbing Adjustable Ball Mount # C45949-22516 that is compatible or rated for use with a weight distribution system.

Just keep in mind you will still need the Curt Hitch Lock - 2" and 2-1/2" Hitches # C23519 in order to secure the ball mount to your hitch.

  • Can Curt Rebellion XD Adjustable Ball Mount Prevent Trailer Sway
    The Curt Rebellion XD part # C45949-22516 normally is not going to help with trailer sway...unless your trailer is currently sitting nose high and this would allow you more drop than what you have currently which would allow the trailer to then sit level. Going from nose high to level will reduce sway but if you are experiencing sway with a level trailer this wouldn't make a big enough difference. So the best way to prevent sway is with proper loading of the trailer to allow the tongue...

  • Will the Curt Rebellion XD Ball Mount Work With Rock Tamers Mud Flap System

Instead, I recommend the B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount # BWTS10040B as we know this works with the Rock Tamers and it has the multiple adjustments slots just like the Curt Rebellion and a stowaway feature.

  • Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount VS Curt Rebellion XD For Towing 4,000LB Boat Trailer
    Since you have such a light boat trailer I recommend the Curt Rebellion XD # C45949-22516. This will work better with the lighter amount of tongue weight that you have of 400lbs. The hitch will also be much easier to use for you as it weighs only 38lbs compared to the Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers # 325-GH-1124 which is more than double that at 92lbs. The Gen-Y will still work but for optimal performance out of their hitch they want to see 1,000lbs of tongue weight....

  • Can 1-7/8" Hitch Ball be Used for the Curt Rebellion XD Shock Absorbing Adjustable Ball Mount

Just make sure it has a 1-1/4" shank like the Curt Hitch Ball # C48810 does and you're good to go!

Rock Tamers like the # ERT00108 require 1" of clearance between the face of the receiver and the ball mount, so since from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest part of the # C45949-22516 measures 3" you will need to have...
