mount diagram

This unique adjustable ball mount from Gen-Y Hitch has a vertical shank that is made up of 4 stacked 2" receivers that can accept almost any hitch-mounted accessory. This lets you easily adjust the height of the included ball mount, or any other accessory you choose to use. This mount 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 mount 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 mount 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 mount, which is similar to that of a torsion axle.


torsion w/cutaway

Pivot points are built into the Gen-Y mount. This allows for movement between the base, which slides into your vehicle's trailer hitch, and the stacked receivers, which provide the connection point for your trailer. When your trailer hits a bump, the stacked receiver portion of the mount 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 receivers rise or fall, these inner bars twist inside of the tubes, attempting to follow the receivers' motion. 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 zerk to keep the components in working condition. No airbags to fill. No small parts to repair or replace. No hassle.


Multiple Stacked Receivers for Easy Adjustment

stacked receivers

This unique mount from Gen-Y Hitch includes a ball mount that can be easily positioned in one of the 4 stacked receivers that sits along the vertical shank of the unit. This dual-ball mount lets you tow a trailer with a 2" ball coupler or a 2-5/16" ball coupler.


pintle hitch

Also included is a pintle lock, which can be inserted into the receiver directly above the ball mount to create a pintle hitch for hooking up a trailer with a lunette ring. Unlike other adjustable pintle hooks on the market, there are no nuts and bolts to remove and retorque when you change the positioning of this hitch. Just move the ball mount and pintle lock up or down to get the proper height and secure them in place with the included pins.


With the 4 stacked receivers, not only do you have the ability to adjust the height of the included ball mount, but you also have the ability to add various other hitch-mounted accessories. Insert a bike rack or cargo carrier. Mount a spare tire carrier. Use a tow bar to flat tow your vehicle. Or just add a fun hitch cover.


Easily Check Your Tongue Weight

scale

This mount features a built-in mechanical tongue weight scale. The highest arrow on the scale indicates the mount's maximum tongue weight (1,700 lbs). The lowest arrow indicates no tongue weight (0 lbs). There must be a minimum tongue weight of 1,200 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 middle arrow when you hook up your trailer to tow.

I love this heavy duty--emphasis on HEAVY--hitch! I barely felt my trailer on my truck while driving it was so smooth! The only drawback is how heavy it is... It is a bit of a feat for me to lift and insert then remove this hitch at the end of a race weekend--but I feel it is well worth it!

Review from a similar Torsion Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


I did my research before ordering. I know exactly what I need and want. My boat trailer tongue weight is 750lbs so I went with the Gen-Y Torsion Flex 2" Hitch - 7.5" Drop/Rise 10k. (Works Best with 400-1,000lbs tongue weight). Also got the BEST price due to their 110% Price Match Guarantee.

Everything described, will meet all nee ds!


Comments
I got pingd by this web site to follow-up on my first review ... gladly!! The GenY Torsion Hitch is phenomenal ... I like to say go big or go home and this thing is big enough for everything I need and that my truck can handle. And the torsion aspect really makes a difference when pulling. One word of caution is that thing is also very heavy Im guessing 110lbs - 120lbs ... not a problem for me now but when Id bought it last year I had torn one of my biceps just before and had to get one of my sons to help attach detach. Just fair warning ...

Review from a similar Torsion Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


It works great. Highly recommend, but beware of two things: price and weight. It’s not cheap, and it weighs roughly 90 pounds. Tows like a champ. The ride is so much smoother while towing.


Comments
The shock absorber feature only works when the trailer has significant tongue weight. Granted, when I have a heavy load, it’s nice, but when I have an empty trailer, it’s like any other hitch. Also, it sets off my backup sensor alarm. My other hitches don’t do that. I wouldn’t buy it again.

Review from a similar Torsion Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


I have yet to tow with this hitch because I just received it today. Upon receiving the box I knew this hitch was not for the faint of heart. It felt like a massive hitch weighing in at 118lbs. Taking it out of the box I could see that this hitch is built like a beast and will likely be more hitch than I will ever need, but I needed a drop hitch and after asking etrailer questions and doing my own extensive research, I decided this was the hitch I should buy. I like the fact that it will give a little more space between the trailer and the truck, it can be used as a pintle setup if the need arises, and it comes with two ball sizes. Using this for my enclosed landscape trailer I am hoping it extends the life of tires and suspension components. I will try and update in the future after towing with this hitch.


Comments
Product is still amazing. Really takes the bounce out of trailering. It’s almost like the trailers aren’t there. The real noticeable difference is my dump trailer when it’s loaded up. You can really notice the difference between this hitch and a regular hitch. Just in comfort it’s worth the money.

This hitch helps a lot with the jerk caused by a bumper pull trailer. There is still some backlash between the pickup and trailer but I've excepted that you are going to have that with a bumper pull trailer. Thanks

Review from a similar Torsion Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


This hitch is a beast. You will not need any more hitches; last you will buy. When received the packaging was a little damaged. I suspect this is due to the overall weight. I figure the hitch alone is about 75-80 pounds. I tow trailers almost every weekend. My enclosed car trailer weighs in at about 10K pounds. My Ram 3500 DRW would buck slightly due to all the road construction. First tow was for about 160 miles. Not once did I feel any push or bucking. If you tow a lot, this is your hitch. Little pricey but worth it.

Review from a similar Torsion Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Bought this hitch a year ago for my new car hauler trailer. I used a standard hard hitch for a few months before deciding to bite the bullet and purchase this hitch. This completely eliminated the hard bumping the trailer would give the truck on some of the rough roads in Missouri

Review from a similar Torsion Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


This receiver hitch is amazing. Most of all, I appreciate the safety, performance and limited wear and tear it provides to my family and the truck. One thoughtful suggestion, would be to include the lifetime warranty for the hitch rather than having to pay additional for it. Unfortunately, did not purchase the warranty in faith that our USA built product will not need any repair. Thanks again!

Review from a similar Torsion Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


I bought the hitch because I frequently tow my 24 foot toyhauler down some pretty rough stretches of interstate highway. Its the kind of highway that when a trailer is attached to your truck, it drives the tow vehicle up and down like a fast yo-yo. I think the hitch helps a little but not nearly as much as I had hoped.

Review from a similar Torsion Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


This is one of the greatest products ever made! I cannot feel the trailer bouncing up and down every time I hit a bump on the highway while trailering my boat. Yes the hitch is heavy but that is also the reason why it works so well. My only suggestion would be that with the 10K pound hitch there needs to be a 2.5 inch receiver not a 2 since all 2500 trucks now are using the 2.5 receiver.

Extremely well built. I use mine to pull a 18k Pintle hitch equipment trailer with a f550. Huge ride improvement on dirt and rough roads. Would recommend to anyone pulling heavy equipment.

  • How Would Gen-Y Horizontal Torsion Clevis and Pintle Hook Combo Connect to Pintle Setup
    To use the Gen-Y Horizontal Torsion Clevis and Pintle Hook Combo w/ 2-5/16" Ball # 325-GH-1124 in a pintle setup would require you to pull the ball up through the top of the clevis opening and then put the loop between the clevis and secure the ball back down through the loop. Essentially you'd be connecting the clevis to the pintle loop.

  • Will Road Shock Still Be Absorbed Using Gen-Y Torsion Ball Mount 325-GH-1124 W/ 7000lb Trailer?
    You are dead on. Using the Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers - 2-1/2" Hitch - 5" Drop/Rise - 16K # 325-GH-1124 will be perfect for your 16000lb trailer, but on your trailer weighing 7000lbs will just not absorb as much road shock. This is due to the stiffness of the torsion flex tubes in the hitch, and the 7000lb under 50% of the max rating of the hitch. I included a video of the # 325-GH-1124 for you to take a look at.

  • Can Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers Be Used With Weight Distribution
    Gen-Y doesn't recommend using one of their stacked receiver ball mounts like # 325-GH-1124 for a weight distribution system, because you'll get some movement between the weight distribution shank and the receiver provided by the # 325-GH-1124. Doing so would allow for more banging and movement which will defeat the purpose of using a torsion ball mount, to a degree. You'd be better off using one of their products that's been specifically designed to work with weight distribution, like...

  • Cushioned Shank for Blue Ox Weight Distribution System
    Yes, Gen-Y does make weight distribution shanks that are cushioned and compatible with the heads of Blue Ox Weight Distribution systems like what you have. For that theres the # 325-GH-1302 for a 2-1/2 inch hitch that can provide up to 7 inches of drop. Or for a 2 inch hitch there's the part # 325-GH-1202.

  • Recommended Gen-Y Hitch for 2019 Chevy Silverado 2500 and Trailer with DO45 Coupling
    It looks like the pin part of the DO45 (which takes the place of a standard hitch ball) has a shank with a 1-1/4" diameter so I recommend using the Curt Heavy Duty Forged Ball Mount # C45340 with a Gen-Y hitch as this ball mount has up to a 17K towing capacity. For the Gen-Y hitch it all depends on the height of the trailer and if your 2019 Chevy Silverado 2500 is stock height or not. If your Chevy is stock height then you should be just fine with the Gen-Y Shank # 325-GH-303 which gives...

  • 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...
