Is this right for you? Product Expert Alexander C says:

Yes, if you:

  • Tow a heavy construction trailer or dump trailer
  • Plan on towing off-road too - pintle lock can turn mount into a pintle hitch
  • Want a safe, comfortable ride

No, if you:

  • Can't lift an extremely heavy hitch
  • Want to keep your backup sensors clear and don't want to buy longer safety chains
  • Don't tow big loads often - shock absorption only works on heavier weights
Insert this shock-absorbing, adjustable mount into your hitch to get 4 stacked 2-1/2" receivers. Flexing rubber cords limit shock. Tongue weight scale shows if load needs to be adjusted. 2" Ball, 2-5/16" ball, and pintle hook included. Great Prices for the best trailer hitch ball mount from Gen-Y Hitch. Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount - 2-1/2" Hitch - 3" Rise/6" Drop - 21K part number 325-GH-1324 can be ordered online at etrailer.com or call 1-800-496-5010 for expert service.

mount diagram

This unique adjustable ball mount from Gen-Y Hitch has a vertical shank that is made up of 4 stacked 2-1/2" receivers. 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.


Easily Check Your Tongue Weight

scale

This mount features a built-in mechanical tongue weight scale. The red section on the top of the scale indicates your maximum tongue weight (2,400 lbs). The red section on the bottom of the scale indicates no tongue weight (0 lbs). A tongue weight of at least 1,600 lbs is recommended for the built-in shock absorption to function effectively. This means that the scale's white indicator marker should be in the green section when you hook up your trailer to tow.

Perfect, my second GenY Torsion hitch. Upgrading to the 21K from the 16K. There's not even a close second.




by:

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.

by:

Haven't used it yet, but it sure looks very promising for my 21000lb trailer.
Like the fact that it's torsion, has weight reader (safe or unsafe) and it also extends my trailer far enough from tailgate to where it doesn't hit it.

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 ...

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.

Awesome!! Great company and product!!

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.




by:

I purchased the hitch for my sons 2500 GMC. He has told multiple trailers with the hitch really likes it.

Solid hitch! Customer service was first class!! Waiting for this Corona stuff to pass so we can use it!!

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


Love the height adjustment for all 3 of my trailers suuper solid, I get compliments all the time when people see it "wow that things stout!" Keeps the trailer tongue from excessive bobbing, the pins it came with are a huge improvement from the standard Bobby pin style I was used to. Over all I do not regret a dollar spent and would highly recommend to anyone looking for an initial purchase or upgrade their tow life

It was well packaged shipping was great received it within a week installation was easy weighing only 73 pounds. It does affect the center back up sensors on a 2022 , 3500 long bed ram pick up.

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.

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


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


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.

  • Weight Distribution Hitch with Gen-Y Torsion 2 Ball Mount
    Yes. You can use your existing weight distribution hitch with the Gen-Y Torsion 2 Ball Mount # 325-GH-1324 without any additional components, but it is not the optimal setup. Gen-Y recommends that you use the Gen-Y Torsion Weight Distribution Shank - 2" Hitches - 6-1/2" Drop/Rise - 1,700 lbs TW # 325-GH-1202 as a replacement for your current weight distribution shank in order to use the Gen-Y Torsion 2 Ball Mount # 325-GH-1324 with your current weight distribution hitch.

    The Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount # 325-GH-1324 is a beast. If your 2017 Ford F-250 has a 2-1/2 inch receiver opening then you will not be disappointed with this ball mount. If you want something that isn't going to break then you will not be disappointed. If you want to be the envy of all your friends then you won't be disappointed.

  • How Does Gen-Y Torsion Adjustable Ball Mount Compare to Weight Distribution System
    The Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers # 325-GH-1324 that you referenced doesn't have the same features as weight distribution or sway control so it's hard to compare them. It will cushion the ride quality when you are towing but it won't distribute tongue weight up to the front axle of the tow vehicle like a WD system does and it won't really minimize sway like a sway control system would. So it depends on what it is that you are looking for. If you have a higher capacity...

  • Can a Gen-Y Hitch Torsion Ball Mount be Used with a 2017 Ford F-450 with a Kelderman Bumper
    I called Gen-Y Hitch to confirm this measurement for you. The Torsion 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers - 3" Hitch - 6" Drop/Rise - 21K, part # 325-GH-1824, has a distance from the 5/8" pin hole to the start of the torsion system of 2.875 ". It will not work with your current setup as is. However, there may be something that you can do. If you use an adapter like part # 58550, this will make it so you can use 2-1/2" products in your 3" receiver. Looking at the same Torsion Mount for 2-1/2"...

  • Recommended Gen-Y Torsion Ball Mount for 2017 Ram 3500 Towing Daily
    For your 2017 Ram 3500, I recommend the Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount - 5" Drop/Rise # 325-GH-1224 or the 7-1/2" Drop/rise # 325-GH-1225 depending on the height of your trailer in regards to your trailer hitch receiver. Both are rated for up to 16,000 lbs towing and tongue weights up to 1,700 lbs. These 2 inch stacked receivers are very durable and well made for even commercial grade level applications.

  • Extended Ball Mount For a 2-1/2 Receiver For Towing a 8,000LB Trailer
    I recommend the Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers # 325-GH-1324 as being the best way to extend your hitch ball on your F-250. Currently we do not have any 12-14" extenders that are rated to tow the 8,000lbs you are needing to tow. The Gen-Y hitch places the hitch ball at either 17-1/2" or 19" depending on which hitch pin hole your use. Included with the hitch is a 2 ball mount that has a 2" and 2-5/16" hitch ball. The shank fits your 2-1/2" receiver so that there is no...
