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.

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.

I’ve used the heck out of it. Something in excess of 60,000 heavy pull miles. I really like it, would buy another, but won’t need to. It’s held up perfectly.

Review from a similar Rebellion XD in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


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.

The hitch works like day one. Still very happy with it

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)

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.

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


Since I needed to get an adjustable ball mount for my truck hitch anyway I decided to spend the extra dollars and go with the Rebellion XD. Really glad I did because there are times when I trailer my boat or camper over gravel and dirt roads for miles that are less than ideal and this helps with the constant pounding. Solid and well built - handles anything I need to trailer.

Ask the Experts about this Curt Trailer Hitch Ball Mount

  • Does Curt Rebellion XD Shock Absorbing Adjustable Ball Mount come with 2 5/16 Ball Installed?
    The Curt Rebellion XD Shock Absorbing Adjustable Ball Mount # C45949-2516 comes with a 2- 5/16" ball, but it is not pre-installed. This is a great option for anyone towing heavier loads up to 15k lbs. or who pulls multiple trailers with different heights. The ball mount does not come with a hitch pin. If you do not already have one, I recommend the MaxxTow Hitch Receiver Lock part # MT96FR to keep the slick black look and provide additional security. Check out the videos below for an...

  • Can Sway Control Be Added To The Rebellion XD Shock Controlling Hitch
    I contacted Curt on your behalf to look at what options you have to use a sway control system with Curt Rebellion XD Shock Absorbing Adjustable Ball Mount # C45949-2516. They did not have a solution allowing both a conventional sway control solution and the Rebellion hitch to be used together. A simpler option instead is the Hayes Sway Master Electronic Sway Control System # HA81775 that provides sway control through your trailer brakes. It is mounted on your trailer and does not...

  • Can the Curt Rebellion XD Shock Absorbing Adjustable Ball Mount be Used with Weight Distribution
    The Curt Rebellion XD Shock Absorbing Adjustable Ball Mount part # C45949-2516 is an excellent option for towing as it has built-in cushioning which does a great job of absorbing road shock thereby proving a smoother ride. In regards to weight distribution, this ball mount is not compatible. In regards to whether or not a system should be used, this really comes down to how well the truck can handle the trailer. We recommend using one if the weight of the trailer (while loaded) is more...

  • Comparing Gen-Y Torsion Cushioned Ball Mount and Curt Rebellion XD
    The Curt Rebellion XD like part # C45949-2516 and the Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount # 325-GH-1124 are the two most advanced cushioned ball mounts. As far as cushioning goes the Gen-Y is the winner as it has a design that allows for more cushioning movement and from our experience works so well it actually improves fuel mileage. Now the Curt Rebellion is a really solid option and does a great job but it won't cushion quite as much. It does have a weight advantage though as it weighs 44 lbs...

  • Weight Distribution Shank Replacement that is Cushioned
    Sounds like you have a weight distribution system and are looking for a way to cushion the ride quality for your rougher roads. For that we have the cushioned weight distribution shank part # 325-GH-1202 which fits all standard weight distribution heads and uses torsion springs to cushion the ride quality when towing.

  • Can the Curt Rebellion XD Shock Absorbing Ball Mount Be Used With a Weight Distribution System
    That's a good idea but sadly I don't think Curt nor Equal-i-zer would permit using the Curt Rebellion XD Shock Absorbing Adjustable Ball Mount part # C45949-2516 with an Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System like part # EQ37100ET. That said, if you are looking to soften the ride I would first try to release some tension from the spring bars but if this then causes you to sag too badly you could look into installing shocks on the trailer, the Lippert Components Bolt-On Shock Kit part #...

  • Weight Capacity of Curt Rebellion XD Shock Absorbing Adjustable Ball Mount with 2-5/16" Ball
    The Curt Rebellion XD Shock Absorbing Adjustable Ball Mount with 2-5/16" Ball part # C45949-2516 is designed for trailers 15,000 lbs and under. It has built-in cushioning which is great for a smoother ride via shock absorption. However, this limits weight capacity which simply does not work for larger trailers. For this, I recommend the BulletProof Hitches Adjustable 2-Ball Mount for 2" Hitch part # ED206 which is rated for 30,000 lbs and under.

  • Compatibility of Curt C45949-2516 Rebellion XD Adjustable Ball Mount with 7000 lb Utility Trailer
    The Curt # C45949-2516 Rebellion XD Shock Absorbing Adjustable Ball Mount provides a 2-5/16 inch trailer ball. It's adjustable from a 6-1/4 inch maximum drop to a maximum rise of 1/4 inch in increments of 1-1/4 inches. If that amount of adjustability will bring your trailer level, the # C45949-2516 Rebellion XD would be an excellent choice that will do a great job of isolating much of the rattling and banging from the connection between the trailer and the vehicle for more comfortable towing. I'll...

    I have another option for you, but the Curt Rebellion XD Shock Absorbing Adjustable Ball Mount with 2-5/16" Ball # C45949-2516 you were looking at is unfortunately not compatible with a weight distribution hitch. Instead I recommend the Gen-Y Torsion Weight Distribution Shank - 2" Hitches - 6-1/2" Drop/Rise - 1,100 lbs TW # GY54FR which is compatible with a weight distribution system and has a similar shock absorbing feature.

  • Which Provides More Cushioning from Ball Mount Convert-A-Ball Vs Curt Rebellion XD
    The Convert a Ball ball mounts like the # AMSC4HD and the Curt Rebellion XD # part # C45949-2516 offer cushioning in a similar way (front to back cushioning) but the Curt Rebellion is going to offer superior cushioning to the Convert a Ball. The reason I say this is because most of the time your ball mount would not be free to move enough for the cushioning to be effective since the tongue weight of the trailer on the ball mount prevents movement where it would be needed.

  • Is There a Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount For a Trailer Over 10,000 Lbs
    It sounds like you are looking for a Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount like part # WS6-2. That said, this Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mounts that fit into a 2 inch receiver will max out at 12,500 lbs due to the aluminium construction so none of them will work for you. The reason for this as noted is that the aluminium construction simply cannot handle the weight which is why you will need to look into a steel ball mount.
