Weight Distribution Diagram

Create a more stable ride for your tow vehicle and trailer with a weight distribution hitch. Adding spring bars to your towing system applies leverage, which transfers the load that is pushing down on the rear of your vehicle to all the axles on both your tow vehicle and your trailer, resulting in an even distribution of weight throughout. The result is a smooth, level ride, as well as the ability to tow the maximum capacity of your hitch.



Selecting a Weight Distribution System

The tongue weight rating is the most important factor in determining which size weight distribution system you should use. If the bars of the system you choose are rated too high for your setup, they will create a rigid ride, which can result in a bouncing trailer. If, on the other hand, the bars are not rated high enough, the system will be unable to properly distribute the weight, rendering it virtually useless.


To determine the proper weight rating for a weight distribution system, you must first determine your trailer's tongue weight. Then add to that the weight of the cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. These two measurements make up the tongue weight rating for a weight distribution system.


Features of the Equal-i-zer

Head Tilt Adjustment

Controlling head tilt with traditional washer method

The Equal-i-zer weight distribution system uses the traditional washer-style adjustment method to achieve the perfect tilt. Controlling the head tilt helps you to fine-tune the leverage on your entire system, making it easier to install and hook up the spring bars. To adjust the tilt, simply slide washers onto the spacer rivet and insert the rivet into the head assembly. To increase the angle, add a washer. To reduce the angle, remove a washer. Most setups take four to six washers to achieve the proper height. Once you get the desired tilt, insert the shank bolts to secure the head to the shank (sold separately) and then tighten it in place.



Construction of Spring Arms

The Equal-i-zer spring bars are not made of traditional spring steel. Rather, they are constructed of a chromium-molybdenum alloy steel. Chromoly steel has a high tensile strength for extreme durability. It also features excellent dexterity, which allows it to give as required and then return softly back to its original form. This pliability is important in minimizing trailer bounce while still ensuring that the weight of your rig is adequately distributed.


Fixed Sway Control Brackets

Installation of Sway-Control Brackets

The unique sway control brackets of the Equal-i-zer are easy to install and simple to use. They clamp onto your trailer frame and conveniently adjust to a position anywhere between 27 inches and 32 inches back from the coupler. These brackets provide the attachment points for the weight distribution spring bars. To position the spring bars during hookup, simply use the included snap-up lever to lift each bar into place on the L-shaped brackets. Then secure the bars in place with the included L-pins and clips.


Equal-i-zer Hitch 4-Point Sway Control

The Equal-i-zer weight distribution system works to stop trailer sway before it begins. This is achieved through the rotational friction that is present in the weight distribution hitch itself. Within the system head, the downward pressure that is placed on the hitch ball by the trailer is combatted by the upward pressure exerted by the spring bars that are mounted in the sockets. This upward force is placed on the spring bars on either side of the system, creating the rotational friction that, essentially, forces your trailer in line. This type of friction is responsible for two points - one on either side of the trailer - of the 4-Point Sway Control. To ensure that enough tension is present, make certain that the socket bolts in the head assembly are torqued to at least 45 foot-pounds.


Points within the Equal-i-zer system where upward and downward forces interact to create rotational friction

The other two points of sway control are created by the steel-on-steel friction that occurs when the spring bars slide within the L-brackets that are mounted on the trailer tongue. Most traditional weight distribution systems have spring bars that are suspended by chains. Although this ensures that the system is not so rigid as to create bounce in the trailer, it also allows a good deal of side-to-side play in the system. Letting the spring bars hang freely minimizes the rotational friction described earlier. It also eliminates your system's ability to create the type of direct friction that has been shown to be so effective in limiting trailer sway.


This direct friction that is applied to the spring bars in the Equal-i-zer system helps to stop sway once it has begun. The concept is similar to the way in which an add-on friction sway control device functions. When each spring bar moves forward or backward, or side to side, it rubs along the bracket, creating friction. The resistance created by this action limits the movement of the spring bar, thus preventing further side-to-side movement of the trailer.


Most add-on units feature some sort of friction material similar to that used in automotive brakes. But the Equal-i-zer uses direct steel-on-steel contact to create resistance. This is the same sort of friction that is used with locomotives that pull loaded railcars weighing tons. No additional materials are needed. The steel will outlast any of those other materials, providing an extremely durable, functional sway control system.

Video Transcript for Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution - WD With Sway Control - EQ37141ET Review

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at an Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System with integrated 4 point sway control. A weight distribution system creates a more stable ride for your tow vehicle and your trailer. This unit features a 2-5/16" hitch ball. It has a gross towing weight capacity of 14,000 lbs. It's designed for trailers that have a tongue weight capacity or a tongue weight of 1,000 to 1,400 lbs. It fits a 2"x2" hitch that's rated for use with a weight distribution system, and as you can see, your adjustable shank or weight distribution shank is not included.

It's sold separately, so if you're in need of one, you can check out options at etrailer.com.Adding spring bars to your setup applies leverage, which transfers the load that is pushing down on the rear of your vehicle to all the axles on both your tow vehicle and your trailer. This results in an even-distribution of weight throughout your towing setup. So that results in a smooth ride, a level ride, as well as the ability to tow the maximum capacity of your hitch.Now, this unit also features integrated 4 point sway control that works to stop trailer sway before it begins. So the head is responsible for creating two points of sway control using what's known as rotational friction, so the downward pressure placed on the hitch ball fights or battles the upward pressure created by the spring bars. The upward force is placed on the spring bars on both sides of the system, creating the rotational friction that forces your trailer to stay in line all the time.

The other two points of sway control are created by the steel on steel friction that occurs when the spring bars slide within the L brackets that are mounted on the trailer tongue. The unique design makes the system compatible with surge-type brake actuators, and these spring bars flex for a controlled, even ride. So they're constructed of a specialized steel for superior dexterity and spring, and that pliability is important in minimizing trailer bounce.It comes with a no-drill, clamp-on bracket, so these can be adjusted along your trailer frame. They don't take up much space above the trailer frame, so that way you can accommodate frame-mounted items such as gas tanks, battery boxes, tool boxes, generators, and so on. And then when it comes to the head assembly, the desired tilt is achieved with a traditional washer and spacer rivet design, so this spacer rivet installed in a slot directly under the hitch ball comes through this area back here, and then you simply add or remove washers from the spacer rivet to tilt the head up or down and fine-tune the leverage on your entire system.We're looking at a durable steel construction with a dipped design, so the steel has all been dipped when it comes to the coating, so that creates a nice corrosion resistant unit.

It also comes with a 5/8" diameter hitch pin and clip to secure your weight distribution shank inside of your 2"x2" hitch. It also comes with the snap-up lever that eases installation of the spring bars by reducing the amount of lifting required by the trailer jack. Also, underneath the hitch ball is a set bolt that can be tightened to take out any slack or wobble between the head assembly and your weight distribution shank.The sway control brackets will be positioned 27" to 32" back from the center of the coupler on your trailer frame. These will fit a maximum trailer frame height of 6", and the multi-hold design makes them adjustable to fit most trailer frames out there on the market. The product's made in the U.S.A., and covered with unlimited lifetime warranty.

And that's going to do it for today's look at the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System with the integrated 4 point sway control.

This was bought to support an F250 with a 20' BigTex equipment trailer. Prior to buying the hitch, I had a bad experience with my old truck and a non-equalizing hitch, which prompted purchasing this with the new truck. This hitch is outstanding. Very heavy duty, and the load equalizing features are excellent. The sway bars can be difficult to install when less than fully loaded, but can be swapped with different weight bars. All in all a great piece of equipment. 360679

Dena was very helpful and knowledgeable on the selection of my weight distribution hitch. I had purchased a thin wall socket, But my buddy had one that I could have, so she made it easy to return the socket. The distribution hitch is perfect for my truck and trailer, it was easy to assemble and with the instruction pamphlet that came with it, it was easy to set up as well. 565746

I have used a lower weight rated Equal-i-zer hitch for two years and have been so pleased that I ordered another when I traded for a heavier travel trailer. I barely know my trailer is behind me and am confident pulling under any conditions. Kirstin D was great to work with, answered my questions and helped with an unusual shipping issue. I will continue to use etrailer. They are great. 569176

Product is still great. The entire setup can be very loud (groans to wake up the neighbors) if you don't grease it regularly. Make sure you do. Other than that, definitely safer and a noticeable difference in sway and tow quality when using. 553064

Product is excellent and installation is a little challenging but the instructions are very helpful and easy to follow. Main difficulty is tightening the hitch ball.

Review from a similar Equal-i-zer 4-Point Sway Control in Weight Distribution


We made a trip to the Pacific Northwest from Arkansas and I have to say, the hitch performed perfectly. Even in a high wind, which is common in Wyoming and the plain states there was no problem keeping a straight line going down the road. One time, when I wasn't paying attention and ran off onto the shoulder of the road, the trailer didn't sway at all but kept straight and allowed me to return to the road without incident. I would recommend this hitch to anyone pulling a trailer of any significant weight behind them. I have a 33 foot RV and pulling it with a 2015 Chevy Silverado 1500. 474796


Comments

Its been over a year since I purchased my Equalizer hitch system and I am completely satisfied with it. Occasionally I have to spray some lubricant on the pivot points on the receiver end to keep the noise down but other than that It works as advertised and I would again rate it 5 stars.

From my limited experience with the hitch, it appears to be very high quality. Have not had it out on a long trip yet, but did do a 20 mile road test with speeds up to 70mph and it was very stable.

Review from a similar Equal-i-zer 4-Point Sway Control in Weight Distribution


I bought this hitch because the dealer I purchased my new trailer from undersized the new Equal-i-zer hitch I purchased along with the trailer. Even though I used the hitch for the last year I finally decided I had to upgrade it because the spring bars were just not quite adequate keeping the trailer level and transferring the weight. My experience with the Equal-I-zer hitch has been satisfactory because of ease of hooking up and unhooking. The integrated friction control has worked very well and the 4 point design makes backing up without having to unhook a friction control device is convenient. You can leave the spring bars on when backing up. I am quite happy with the Equal-i-zer brand and would recommend this hitch to anyone in the market for a new hitch. 575202

I must say that this isn't my first equal-i-zer hitch. Ive been a owner since 2008. I just needed to go up to a bigger size due to a bigger trailer, So there were no surprises. I knew exactly what I was buying. Just as expected, like my previous smaller 1000/10000 lb version, Excellent quality, simple set-up, and works great.

Review from a similar Equal-i-zer 4-Point Sway Control in Weight Distribution


Honestly a great purchase. Read a ton of reviews before buying. Had the traditional style weight distribution hitch with sway bar attachment before, and I'll definitely say that I have no intentions of going back! The sway control is absolutely great. Hauled a 30' travel trailer from Atlanta, GA to upstate New York and back with absolutely no sway issues whatsoever. If set up correctly, it should do the trick. I will say, however, that it can be slightly loud at low speeds, but is just something to get used to. Would recommend this hitch to anyone. Worth the investment. 338779

Great weight distribution system! Easy to install and adjust. I've used it for over a year now and find it quick and easy to use. However, I quickly lost the black 'persuasion bar' so paint yours red for better visibility when you set it down (although you'll rarely need it). 488981

Review from a similar Equal-i-zer 4-Point Sway Control in Weight Distribution


Product works as advertised. We pull a 10,000 lb 24' catering trailer that the weight distribution is far from even with convection oven, 2 door commercial refrigerator and more. We were having severe swaying problems on the highways. Bought this sway control and it stopped all swaying. Before I couldn't hit 55mph without uncontrollable sway and now there is no speed limit that causes sway. Very easy to hook up, follow directions and its a no brainer. After 1 year I still use it every time and seems to work just as well. Re-adjusted for a new truck in minutes. Doesn't interfere with any wire or chains and we have 3 camera system along with custom frame platform on front of trailer to support 2- 100 lb propane tanks and a generator and was still easy to fit on and works great. 517465

Review from a similar Equal-i-zer 4-Point Sway Control in Weight Distribution


This is one strong hitch. Assembly and adjustment instructions are well written and easy to follow but you'd better have the right tools and a level, smooth parking lot to do the work. The instructions do not mention how stiff the arm sockets will be when the hitch is being assembled and do not cover lubrication until later in maintenance. Be sure to get the correct height/drop shank. I used the Equal-i-zer "Find the right shank" wizard on their website and came up short (literally) so had to order a second, longer one. etrailer was great about taking the short shank back as long as it hadn't been used (installed and adjusted on vehicle was OK, just not having actually towed anything). etrailer also wasted NO time in getting my parts to me--three days via Big Brown to a small town in Idaho. USPS can't get a letter delivered that far away any quicker (not bashing USPS by any means). 564812

Review from a similar Equal-i-zer 4-Point Sway Control in Weight Distribution


Cuts down sway considerably. Noisy on turns because it uses friction on bars to control the sway. Definatly worth the price but not as good as a Hensley. Would I buy again, yes. Hook up is a little more physical getting the friction bars onto the L brackets but easier once you learn not to put full weight of trailer on the ball until you position the friction side bars on the brackets. Own several trailers and this purchase allows me to move to trailer needed by just buying an extra set of L brackets for each trailer. Seems to be well built and no problems after a year of use. Glad I paired my purchase with power post. This helps find the sweet spot when hooking up. 558212


Comments

If you hitch up the trailer, and use the trailer jack to raise both the front of the trailer and the rear of the tow vehicle by a few inches, youll find that enough of the tension is taken out of the system so the spring bars are easier to put in place.

This is one slick setup. I got it tuned in perfectly on the second try. Instructions are very specific and very accurate. I found only one thing that could be better - the bolts that hold the ball mount to the receiver bar are too long, at least 1" too long. A standard socket won't fit over them to torque the nut - shorter bolts or a warning that a deep socket is needed would be nice. This seems like an anomaly, as everything else was a perfect fit. Good price, speedy delivery, as always. One caution, this thing is heavy! 283591

after searching multiple websites for the Equalizer 10,000lb gtw/ 1000 lb tw weight distribution and 4 point sway control hitch, E-Trailer had the best deal for the this hitch. Not only the best deal but the best price and free shipping as well. In addition E-Trailer also offered a great price pledge, if you find an equal product cheaper they will price match. When I found a cheaper unit and emailed E-Trailer they matched the cheaper price and I saved another $xx.the hitch was also shipped quickly and I received it 3 days later. Their customer service was great. they were informative, polite and quick with all parts of the transaction, including the price match refund. great, price, great service, I would recommend them and will shop with them again. 319704

The 12k Equalizer Weight Distribution Hitch is an AWESOME product and did all it said it would do. Bombed hills, kept my ride steady, and most important kept my family safe on the SoCal/NorCal roads more than 28 hrs of driving north to the redwoods @ Jedidiah Smith then back south again. Next trip coming up quick in a week getting ready for another adventure. With the new EQ WDH set up is a snap! Thank you etrailer Team for all the help and great pricing!

Review from a similar Equal-i-zer 4-Point Sway Control in Weight Distribution


Worth every cent. We bought a 2008 26' Sun Valley Road Runner two weeks ago and immediately took it on a trip to the N. Georgia mountains behind our 2006 Silverado 1500HD. Very scary up and back with a serious sway problem that kept me from going over 50 mph. Upon returning I researched heavily on how to "prevent" sway and not just "reduce" it. Your website was extremely helpful in explaining the differences in all the products available. The product reviews were very favorable for the Equal-i-zer four point system so it made my decision an easy one. Within two days of ordering, it arrived and I just installed it today. It was very easy to set up. I took it out for a run on the interstate and WOW what a difference! I could run along at 65-70 mph with absolutely no sway and very little bounce. This is the first time I had to buy a weight distribution system and if I ever have to do it again I will certainly go back through etrailer.com. The Equal-i-zer is a great product. 281160

Review from a similar Equal-i-zer 4-Point Sway Control in Weight Distribution


The Equal-I-zer hitch was a night and day difference. The trailer tracked perfectly with no sway what so ever, even with a very windy day. The whole unit (truck and trailer ) has become very easy to handle and docile on the road. Thank you very much. The hitch worked as advertised and is easy and quick to install. I would recommend this hitch to anyone needing an anti-sway weight distributing hitch. 260967

First let me say that Katherine B was very helpful and answered all my questions. I received my equalizer 4 point WD/antisway hitch in 2 days. I have it installed will do a test run this weekend and update my review. 557321

Review from a similar Equal-i-zer 4-Point Sway Control in Weight Distribution


All good with this hitch! We have pulled in high cross wind without much noticeable sway. Our truck and the trailer are level. After I learned the trick of raising the tongue a little above horizontal, I can install and remove the arms without using the cheater bar. I had to adjust the hitch after I traded trucks but it was a simple thing and took very little time. We've had people stop to look at it because they were tired of using the hitches with chain adjustment. Couldn't be happier. The support from etrailer staff is great. 387470

Review from a similar Equal-i-zer 4-Point Sway Control in Weight Distribution


I had been using a less expensive competitor sway hitch with chains on a 27 ft. camper. I didn't think the performance of the hitch was too bad but I didn't know what I was missing. We recently purchased a 32 ft. toy hauler and I tried using the old hitch. The performance was horrible. After a recommendation on the correct hitch from etrailer and reading the reviews, I purchased the Equalizer 14,000 pound hitch. Man what a difference! The toy hauler pulls straight as an arrow. In addition, the semi trucks don't suck and push the rig all over the road when they pass. Lastly, the wife doesn't have a death grip on the door arm rest. She actually reads a book during the trip which says it all. The only complaint is that it is noisy when pulling through the campgrounds. But who really cares when it performs flawlessly on the road. Thanks so much etrailer! Walt 442118

I It’s working out great! I bought the plastic clips for the L brackets to reduce the hitch noise when entering and leaving in the campground but didn’t help. Nonetheless, still a wonderful hitch and would buy again.

The jackets reduce the sound by a very small degree, but remember that metal on metal friction that creates the noise is what's providing your sway control so eliminating the noise would eliminate the performance of that function as well.

Review from a similar Equal-i-zer 4-Point Sway Control in Weight Distribution


The Equal-i-zer hitch arrived in 3 days with free shipping. It was fairly easy to install with the proper tools. I had to find someone to tighten the ball to the hitch because it requires a 1-7/8 inch socket and needs to be torqued to about 300 lbs. Followed the directions to properly adjust the hitch for the trailer and tow vehicle and everything worked well. 277923

Review from a similar Equal-i-zer 4-Point Sway Control in Weight Distribution


Although we have yet to go on a long trip with our camper, the preliminary 20 min. test proved to be a success! This product significantly improved the ride of our truck and reduced the sway to close to nothing, but the main reason I am writing this review is to draw attention to the excellent customer service I received when ordering. Sierra was extremely helpful after I called to find out my original item would not arrive by the time we needed it. She got all of the needed information from me and consulted on of the technicians to make sure we got something comparable and within the same price range. I can say enough about how well she handled a potentially stressful situation for us. Not to mention shipping only took 2 days! Great job Sierra and etrailer staff! 277057

Great product except for one thing. If you are going to sell this hitch either sell it with ball already attached or include the 1 7/8 thin wall socket with it. Could not find socket anywhere locally and finally had to dismantle Equilizer bar sockets which is no easy task , and then use regular socket that I already had, what a pain. Other than that great service and ultra fast shipping. I think I ordered it Tuesday night and had it Friday night. Great job. Will repost once all is installed and try it out. 275437

Review from a similar Equal-i-zer 4-Point Sway Control in Weight Distribution


Just bought a new Travel Trailer, had been using a Reese Weight distribution set up with traditional sway bar. This system worked well but had the tractor trailers pushing me around and on windy days I had to reduce highway speeds dramatically. So, I chose to upgrade to the Equalizer for the new TT. I had the Professionals install it since it was raining but the videos and information on etrailer make me confident I could have done it with the correct tools. The Equalizer was fantastic on the 75 mile ride home in the rain with heavy Tractor Trailer traffic. Had little to no sway. Very pleased with my decision. This is a heavy duty system and is easy to hook up. I ordered by calling etrailer because I had a question about shipping and delivery since I needed the new set up for delivery of my new TT. Lisa was more than helpful answering my questions and getting the hitch to me on time. I strongly recommend The Equalizer and etrailer for your towing needs. 426708

Review from a similar Equal-i-zer 4-Point Sway Control in Weight Distribution


I purchased a trailer used over ten years ago. It was a 26 foot travel trailer approximately 7500 lbs. It was old and heavy. The previous owner had purchased this same equilizer hitch and gave it to me with trailer. It was on there since day one every time I towed so I never realized how well it benefited me. I sold that trailer some years back. Last year I bought a new travel trailer. 26 foot but only 6000lbs. I bought a harbor freight weight distribution hitch and installed it at rv dealer. I worked with the guys to ensure it was installed correctly. Well I can tell you the combo was the most dangerous rig I ever operated. I made adjustments over and over again but never felt safe. At that piont I decided it must be the cheap harbor freight hitch and started looking for a new hitch. I came across the equilizer and remembered how well and stabil that rig felt. So I sized the correct one and purchased it. I installed it as per manufacturer instructions. Right away it was a million times better. It took some adjustments but got it perfect. In my opinion it one of the best and good price too. Easy to use and adjust . Nothing fancy but a good old design that works quiet and safe. I have traveled at over 85 mph by accident because it's all so smooth. 388383

I bought a heavier truck in past year. Im using same hitch and trailer. I had to make a height adjustment but other than that the hitch is still delivering the same great stable service.

Etrailer is awesome! I called Monday evening and they answered my questions about the weight distribution hitches. I knew I wanted an Equalizer hitch but was unsure on the model. Etrailer recommended the 600/6000 model so I ordered it over the phone. They said it would take five days to ship to CA, but it was delivered today, on Thursday, and only took three days! Etrailer rocks!!! 525151

Just got the equalizer 14000 weight distribution hitch and the airlift bags in today from ups. Took a little over 2 hours to install both. The hitch I had before combined with the stock ram 1500 suspension was all over the road with my toy hauler. I couldn't go over 35-40 miles an hour with out feeling like I was going to lose my rig and anyone that's ever been in that situation knows what a white knuckle experience that is. I just got back from a test drive and it is unbelievable the difference those two items made. I got up to 70 and it drove like a dream. For reference my toy hauler is 8500#s with a 850# tongue weight. Thank you etrailer for the best product, fast/free shipping and definitely the lowest price. 382186

  • Upgrading a 12K Equal-I-zer Weight Distribution System to a 14K
  • There area few differences between the 1,200 and 1,400 pound Equal-I-zer systems. The heads are different and the spring bars are different. If your tongue weight is over 1,200 pound then the 1,200 pound system is not rated high enough. When calculating tongue weight for weight distribution you go by the total tongue weight. This is calculated by taking the tongue weight of the trailer when loaded and ready to tow plus the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle....

  • Recommended Equal-I-Zer Weight Distribution System For Loaded Trailer Weighing About 9,000 Lbs
  • I recommend going with the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System w/ 4-Point Sway Control, part # EQ37120ET. The # EQ37141ET system has a tongue weight rating capacity of 1,000 lbs and you may exceed that with the weight of your loaded trailer weight of 9,000 lbs. You want to make sure you do not exceed the towing capacity of your truck. The most important thing to consider is the tongue weight of your trailer.

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for Keystone Sprinter 37 Foot Travel Trailer and 2015 Ram 2500
  • When choosing a weight distribution system, it is key to know your trailer's loaded and ready to tow tongue weight. To this tongue weight you will also need to add the weight of any cargo carrier behind the rear axle in the bed of your 2015 Ram 2500. Once you know the loaded and ready to tow tongue weight of your trailer, it will be easier to choose a properly rated weight distribution system.

  • Upgrading from 1,200 lb Tongue Weight Fastway Weight Distribution to 1,400 lb Equalizer
  • Your best solution is going to be to go with the part # EQ37141ET. This is the # EQ37140ET but without the shank since you already have one. The head of your old system is not the same as the # EQ37140ET so new bars would not fit it. By the time you would piece together everything you would end up spending more than just ordering the part # EQ3714ET.

  • Reducer Sleeve for Equal-I-zer Weight Distribution System in 2-1/2 Inch Receiver of 2016 Ford F350
  • The reducer sleeve does need to be a bit smaller than the interior dimension of the receiver or it could become stuck. Typically a bit of 'slop' between the shank and the receiver or in this case, the reducer and shank isn't much of a concern with a weight distribution system because the spring bars of the system are applying a good deal of upward leverage against the receiver. This is almost always enough leverage to prevent the shank from rattling around. Not in your case, however. Since...

  • Equal-i-Zer Weight Distribution System Recommendation for 11.4k Trailer and Lifted Truck

For lifted trucks like yours a larger drop shank like the part # EQ90-02-4400 would be your best option as it allows you to do drops up to 9 inches which is about right for a truck like yours with a 2 inch lift.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for 2017 GMC Yukon Denali and ATC Enclosed Car Trailer

This will come with the 2-5/16 inch hitch ball needed, but not the shank. The shank I recommend to go with this system is the Curt Welded Weight Distribution Shank 7" - 10 Hole Adjustment # C17123 which combined will give you a 6-1/4 inch drop.

Ideally you'd have it basically already installed minus setting the spring bar angle to achieve the proper amount of spring bar tension.
