Draw-Tite Tested Tough

Draw-Tite Tested Tough

Draw-Tite's Tested Tough program provides testing standards far superior to those outlined by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), the go-to source for engineering professionals.



Each Draw-Tite trailer hitch receiver undergoes extensive fatigue testing and static testing with the ball mount that is either supplied or recommended for use with that particular hitch, thus ensuring results that are applicable to real life use. Fatigue testing is also conducted on hitches rated for use with weight-distribution systems.


In addition, Draw-Tite performs static testing on a simulated automobile, as opposed to the rigid fixture used for SAE testing, resulting in a more true-to-life scenario.

Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2006 Subaru Impreza - Draw-Tite

Today on our 2006 Subaru Impreza we're going to take a look at and show you how to install the Draw-Tite custom fit sport frame trailer hitch receiver. This is a class one 1-1/4" hitch. Its part number is 24710. Here's what the hitch is going to look like once you've got it installed on your Impreza. As you can see, it comes across the rear pretty nicely. Just hangs down from that bumper slightly no more than what the rear cover did on this one, which was the STI. Uses factory mounting locations on each side so you're not going to have to worry about pulling through any wires, any kind of fish wiring, anything like that.

It's actually a pretty easy hitch to go on. With it being the STI, we did pull a couple of exhaust hangers that it didn't say to, but those are an easy thing to do. This is going to have the square tube design that comes across so it keeps it pretty symmetrical, which the rear of the vehicle kind of is. We've got loop-style safety chain connectors, so there's not a big plate hanging out there that we've got to look at. This is going to be a good hitch for your light duty towing applications, being the class one. This is going to give us a 200 pound maximum tongue weight and a 2,000 pound gross trailer weight rating.

Now of course you need to look into the Impreza's owner manual to see if that does in fact carry over, or if not, go off of whichever of those numbers are the lowest. It's going to work good for your 2-bike racks and any kind of light hitch applications that you might need getting your bikes around, or maybe one of the small class one cargo carriers or something of that nature. Now let's go over a few measurements that will help you in selecting your ball mount, bike rack, or maybe cargo carrier. From the ground to the inside top edge of the receiver tube opening it's about 12". From the center of your hitch pinhole to the outermost edge of our bumper, it's about 5. With this Subaru being an STI version, we've got this center panel that comes down.

We're going to go ahead and take it down just to give us some room to work, and then we'll fit it later, see if it's able to go back up there or not. There's four bolts on here to remove if you do have the panel. It's just a 12mm bolt. Now once we have that center panel out of the way we're also going to remove two bolts, one here and one here. That holds the bracket in place that acts as that panel's rear support. We're going to start here on the passenger side.

We've got one, two, three bolts that we're going to remove. Do a little spray lubricant on there just in case they've got any built-up corrosion or anything. Our purpose is to take down our canister here. Now we're going to be able to get a better angle at that bracket bolt if we have these removed first. These are also going to be our attachment locations, so by removing these we're taking a step forward there and just getting it done before the instructions say. There's the second. Be careful around this little elbow here. We don't want to damage that at all. That's part of the evaporative emissions system. Then you're going to need a wrench to get into this back one, maybe a real short socket if you have it. I don't so we're going to do a wrench. Now it's time to get our exhaust bracket off on our driver side here. Again, lubricating our bolts here won't be a bad idea. We'll also put a little bit on that one because we're going to be pulling this bracket off and also separating it from our rubber isolator. See we'll then be able to rotate that down out of the way and then take that bolt out that runs right through the middle. We'll return that to the customer or put it away if you ever want to reinstall this hanger later without the hitch, you'll be able to put it back in there. Now with that bracket out of the way you'll be able to see our last mounting location right up there, so we'll want to remove this as well. Now let's take a look at our mounting locations. Here on the driver side we're going to be using the three holes here in the back that are all the same size. This one, if you remember, had our exhaust mounting bracket on it, and that was the bolt just in front of that. On the passenger side we'll be using this rear hole location and the two in front of it that are the same size, both here on the passenger side and the driver side. We'll be skipping the small hole that's between the first two. Now an optional step that you may want to do is to lower this rear exhaust pipe down a little bit. This is the STI so it's got that really big tip on it. We're going to lower it down just to make it a little easier for you to see and for us to get the hitch in, but it's going to be optional. Be sure if you do lower it down though that you support it from the underside. Somewhere in the middle section here find a good spot to hook in a strap. Then we'll just cinch that down a little bit just like that. Now we'll have a hanger here that we're going to be removing, as well as one right in front of the other muffler here. Now we're going to get our hitch up into position. We just guide it up over the exhaust and under the valance here on this side. We're going to install one of the factory bolts that we removed. That's one of our factory bolts right into the factory mount location. Now we'll finish up by putting our bolts in the rear and front location here, and the same thing over here on the driver side. Now we'll take a quick look just to be sure we have our hitch centered with our vehicle. Then we'll start snugging down our fasteners. Now we'll take the bolt that's provided with the hitch. We're going to place one of our flat washers on and we're going to bring that right through the hitch as you can see there. We're then going to take all remaining flat washers that we have, with the exception of one. We can stack those up just like that and slide those on the bolt as well. That's going to act as a spacer just like that. Then our factory isolator will come right down onto that bolt. It's then going to get a flat washer, lock washer and nut, and then we'll tighten this down to the specifications listed in our manual. Now we'll go through and secure the rest of our fasteners to the specifications as well. Now we'll get our exhaust hangers put back into place here. Just want to bring them around, and the one right here in the front. Then we'll pull down our support strap there. With everything nice and secure and put back where it belongs, that's going to complete today's installation of the Draw-Tite custom fit class one trailer hitch, part number 24710, on our 2006 Subaru Impreza. .

This hitch was a replacement for the Subaru OEM hitch that I've had on my 2004 WRX Wagon since new and was damaged in a rear-end collision. The OEM hitch is $240 online and this Draw-Tite is less than half the price. Surprisingly, it's also half the weight. Seriously, the OEM hitch is a beast! The Draw-Tite hitch required some minor underbody sheetmetal clearancing but fit perfectly and was easy to install. It does contact my STi muffler tip where it goes over but it's snug and under tension so hopefully it won't bang around too much. I have the STi back box, which has a large fart can on the end versus the original twin-tip which will most likely clear the hitch. Overall, I'd recommend this product as a lighter, cheaper alternative to the Subaru OEM hitch. 577939

Check your hitch and exhaust! If your hitch is at the same height as your exhaust you will be putting hot exhaust gasses right on the rack. If possible you may want to go to a rack that has a rise in it. 2862

Got the Draw-Tite hitch for our 2002 WRX. Hitch arrived rapidly and fit perfectly . It's a a well-built Class I hitch with good welds. The only negative, is that the instructions don't mention that you need to get extended exhaust hangers (just the rubber hangers) to drop the muffler down about 1" to clear the hitch. You can reuse the original hangers, but they are very tight and will eventually allow the muffler to contact the hitch. 153795

I was very happy with the trailer hitch I ordered. I bought the hitch for my 2005 Wrx. I got it on my door step in 1 week and install was easy and simple. Took 45 min max to put on and it fit perfect. One thing that should be stressed more is that you need extended exhaust hangers. You can stretch the stock ones but then your exhaust will rattle on the trailer hitch. Overall I'm extremely happy with the product and how easy it was to put on. Also it hides up in the bumper amazing. One thing to add also is I have a aftermarket exhaust and the hitch still fit perfect! I deffinetly would recommend this! 131589

Hitch installed perfectly, hitch pin is included (I ordered one, so now I have two), also included hardware to lower/re-mount the muffler so it doesn't hit the hitch....I thought I could keep the exhaust higher and re-use the OEM mount, but it hits the exhaust. Use the included hardware for this. 88045

Hitch was ordered on a Monday and received that Thursday afternoon, UPS standard ground delivery. Vehicle is a no-frills, base model 2007 Subaru Impreza sedan, std. trans. The left side of the hitch with the elongated holes was bent inwards slightly. The rearmost frame bolt hole lined up in the hitch slot but the front hole was blocked by about 3/8 inch. I couldn’t tell if the hitch had been dropped/damaged in shipping since the box had been discarded before I noticed the misalignment. A bench vice and large plumber’s wrench bent it back into alignment with modest effort. The six frame bolts are fine thread and felt like they wanted to cross-thread so I cleaned up the threads with a wire wheel. Hitch fits perfect and there were no clearance problems with the muffler as some posts have reported. I highly recommend watching the installation videos. Also, use a torque wrench - 68 ft/lbs. is a lot of torque especially if you’re on your back using a creeper and jack stands! This is the second hitch I’ve purchased from e-Trailer. The first was for a 1991 Subaru Legacy and it has served me quite well. 165424

Thought I mention the 2 things I found not quite right when installing my hitch. I needed to bend the body sheet metal tab at the rear of the spare tire cavity down a bit to get clearance between it and the hitch. Could be variances between vehicles as to where it ends up, but I had to pull the hitch back out to do this. The other issue was the placement of the hole to remount the muffler hanger. It was not close to where it needed to be to reattach the muffler rubber mount. It was too low and causes the rubber isolator to be totally squished to install the bolt/tighten. If I could have gotten a straight shot at it with my drill (without again removing the hitch), I would have drilled another hole in the right place. Otherwise, the area the hitch is located is very restrictive and they did a good job of getting it in there without hanging it excessively low. 107196

2002 Subaru WRX

I purchased this hitch for a 2002 wrx wagon so I could attach a bike rack. I ordered it a few months ago and finally got around to installing it with a friend. The clearances for the drivers side are very tight. We got the passenger side bolted in and then we couldn't get the drivers side to touch the frame. The hitch or the car frame could be slightly deformed. I know that my car was in one wreck before I bought it because of carfax. We fixed the issue by putting a jack under the center of the receiver and putting light pressure under it (not enough to make the rear wheels come off of the ground). Someone else mentioned that the muffler sits right on the receiver and you will have hot exhaust very close to your stuff if you use a hitch basket. I noticed that too and I bought a hitch with a 2 inch lift and that seems to provide a good enough barrier. 36358

I am pretty happy with my hitch. Installation was easy. The instructions do say that extended exhaust hangers are needed. Even with extended hangers the hitch still barely touches my factory suburu exhaust. I had to ziptie a piece of high temp rubber/silicon in between the hitch and exhaust to keep it from rattling. As I am looking at the fitment, I think the main hitch bar could have a slightly bigger bend in it to avoid contact with the exhaust without the need for extended hangers without reducing the strength of the hitch. Overall I am happy with my purchase. 461064

This hitch receiver is exactly what I was looking for. Its one flaw that I (and others) have observed is too tightly fitting near the muffler. If it were filed down a bit, I would expect it to solve the problem without significantly affecting the strength of the product. Otherwise, very satisfied. 413655

Bought this hitch to mount a 2 bike Swagman rack for carrying a couple of mountain bikes. It's performed fine for that purpose. Nothing really to complain about with the hitch - paint is holding up fine, and it does its job. 409406

Draw-tite hitch was received quickly, well-made, no parts missing. Took a little longer than expected to install. My '04 Outback Sport (Impreza) had a different muffler than the diagram showed and it took a little doing to get hitch to fit. E-trailer kept me informed on delivery and other things. This was my first experience with them and I will use them again. 50789

Fits good. Takes a little bit of coercing to get it to fit. Had to slightlly bend a couple of brackets on my 2002 Subaru WRX wagon to make it fit. Took about 2 hours by myself, in the driveway, without jacking the car. 38687

1996 Subaru Impreza

I received the product quicker than expected. Ease of installation was a definite plus. Only one small problem. Where the mounting bracket meets the crossing square tube, it's at an angle. My muffler rattles it on left turns.It could be because my exhaust pipes were modified. The problem will be easy to fix, when I take the time to do it. Other than that, I'm really satisfied with the product. 36991

Great hitch--perfect fit. I installed this on a 2003 Outback Sport. Already tried one that was supposed to fit from a different maker/retailer, and it was off. This one fits perfectly, and DrawTite is smart enough to make the holes on one side oval shaped so you have a little freedom to make sure it fits just right. 2577

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • Extra Exhaust Hangers when Installing Trailer Hitch on a 2007 Subaru Impreza WRX
  • Based on the exhaust you have and the unknown compatibility with Curt hitch # C11497 on your 2007 Subaru Impreza, I recommend getting 3, if not a couple extra just in case because you never know what you might need. Its better to be prepared. You mentioned using the hitch with a bike rack. Since the hitch is a Class I, you will need a bike rack that is Class I compatible and you are limited to 2 bikes at most. Also, Curt requires the use of stabilization strap # 18050 when using the...

  • Recommended Hitch for 2007 Subaru Impreza Wagon with 2 Inch Bike Rack
  • Depending on the weight of your current bike rack and your bike will determine if using a 2 inch adapter will work or not. The hitch adapter will reduce the capacity of the hitch by 50 percent causing the tongue weight of the hitch to now be 100lbs. If the combination of weight for your bike and 2 inch rack is below this then a 2 inch adapter will work for you. I recommend the Draw-Tite hitch # 24710 over the others because of the price and you will not have to use a stabilization...

  • Trailer Hitch for 2005 Subaru Impreza WRX Wagon
  • The Class I trailer hitch I suggest for your 2005 Subaru Impreza WRX Wagon that is NOT the STi version is Curt # C11497. It delivers the same rated capacity as the similar Draw-Tite # 24710. One important difference between the two hitches is that Curt's warranty policy requires you to use a support strap # 18050 for any non-trailer load, such as a Class I bike rack like the BikeWing # B01311. The Draw-Tite hitch does NOT have this requirement and neither hitch needs the strap to tow...

They even share the same instructions. Since you are planning on doing some light duty towing I recommend the Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24710 and the appropriate ball mount, # 3593. For a 1-7/8 inch ball use # 19256 and for a 2 inch ball use # 19258. And for trailer wiring you can use # 119147KIT...

  • Solution for Installing Hitch with Broken Weld Nut
  • If you can access an open end of the frame where the weld nut broke off you could fishwire a new carriage bolt in place of the weldnut. Otherwise you may have to weld the hitch on or see if a local garage like you mentioned could come up with a way to re-weld in a weld nut. For a bolt leader you could then use the # C58400.

Class III and higher have 2 inch receivers so really you are looking for a Class III. I have linked an FAQ on hitch classes for you.

  • Recommended Hitch for 2013 Impreza Sport for Carrying Bike Rack
  • According to my research, the Impreza Sport is the hatchback model. The correct hitch for your vehicle will depend on whether it has single or quad-tip exhausts. For the single exhaust, I would recommend the Draw-Tite Class I receiver, part # 24866. If you have the WRX or WRX STi model, you will need to use the Curt Class I, part # C11120. The Draw-Tite model will install without the need to drill any holes in the vehicle frame, but the holes in the frame rail will need to be enlarged...

This should work well to tow your boat and trailer that weighs 1,500 lbs since this hitch has a 2,000 lb capacity.

The platform style typically is easier to use, because the bikes do not have to be lifted as high to place on the rack. The ratcheting arms securely hold the bike, with...

  • Is the Draw-Tite # 24710 Compatible with a 1997 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport AWD
  • Yes, this Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24710 will work on your 1997 Outback Sport AWD as it will fit all model Subaru Imprezas from 1993-2001. I attached installation instructions for this product for you to check out also. This hitch comes with a pin and clip, but to complete your towing setup you may be interested in purchasing the following products: Tow Ready Wiring # 119179KIT (installation instructions and installation video attached) Ball mount # 3593 Hitch Ball 1-7/8...

  • Is Ball Mount Included With Hidden Hitch # 60823 for a 2005 Subaru Impreza
  • The Hidden Hitch Trailer Receiver # 60823 (no longer available) does come with a drawbar, pin and clip. The drawbar that is included is the Sportframe # 3593. In this application, the drawbar can only be used in the rise mode. The rise mode is 2-1/8 inches. If you need a ball to mount on your drawbar, I have attached a link with all the 3/4 inch shank diameter choices. Check your owners manual for weight capacity limitations.

  • Is 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver Available for 2006 Outback Impreza Sport Wagon
  • The only hitch receiver available for your 2006 Subaru Impreza Sport Wagon is going to be a Class I with a 1-1/4 inch opening like the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver, # 24710. The frame on your Impreza is not able to handle the towing capacities of the higher class of hitch so they do not make a 2 inch hitch for your vehicle. Since it sounds like you already own a bike rack that is designed for a 2 inch hitch you would need an adapter like part # HTAD to be able to use...

  • Replacement Installation Hardware for Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch on a 2005 Subaru Impreza
  • When installing Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24710 the exhaust hanger will be suspended from the hitch using a 7/16 inch hex bolt. But you should know that none of the hitch hardware can be reused. You have to get all new hardware because it is meant to be torqued down only once. For replacement hardware you will need # RHK. Enter the hitch number and manufacturer on the RHK page to get the correct hardware for the hitch. I have linked a video showing installation of the hitch as well...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Wiring for Towing Small U-Haul Trailer with 2004 Subaru Impreza Wagon
  • Your 2004 Subaru Impreza wagon is as you stated allowed to pull up to a 2,000 lb max trailer with brakes. A U-haul will not have brakes on a trailer that size, so you will need to stay under the 1,000 lb max without trailer brakes. For your components, I recommend the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" # 24710 which is the same installation on the wagon as the sedan in the attached video. Then I recommend the Upgraded Circuit Protected ModuLite...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for Towing Motorcycle Trailer With 1995 Subaru Impreza
  • Of the hitches available, I'd recommend the Draw-Tite # 24710. The Draw-Tite model has the full thickness crossbar that spans the distance between the mounting flanges for extra rigidity. You will need a ball mount. You'll also need a trailer wiring harness, part # 119179KIT is recommended. Finally, you'll need a trailer ball like # 19256. Although the hitch has a 2000 towing/200 lb tongue weight capacity, you might be limited by the towing capacity of the vehicle, if it is less....

  • How to Carry 4 Bikes with a 2000 Subaru Impreza
  • There are only Class I hitches available for your 2000 Subaru Impreza. The best way to carry 4 bikes would be to use a hitch rack for two of them and then roof racks for the additional two. The Draw Tite Hitch part # 24710 that you referenced would be a great choice for a hitch and then for a bike rack you would want the Swagman XTC-2 part # S64670. This is a great rack that is very popular that has a ton of positive reviews. I attached a review video for you to check out. For a roof...

  • Trailer Hitch Fit Info for 2007 Subaru Impreza
  • A hitch like the # 24710 that is a confirmed fit for your 2007 Subaru Impreza would not fit any newer vehicles as that was the last year for that generation of Impreza. If you need a hitch for the 2018 Subaru you will need to order it when you get the vehicle.

  • What Bike Rack Solution do You Recommend for a 2007 Subaru Impreza with a Dealer Installed Spoiler
  • Trunk mounted bike racks are test fitted on vehicles without any dealer or aftermarket modifications. A bike rack that fits a 2007 Impreza 4 Door with factory spoiler may not fit a vehicle with a dealer spoiler. In this situation, you have two options, either a roof rack and roof mounted bike rack or a hitch and hitch mounted bike rack. I always recommend going with a hitch and hitch mounted bike rack. I think a hitch is more subtle than a roof rack as far as aesthetics. Plus with...
