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. This distributes the weight evenly to reduce the strain on the vehicles and give you a level ride. It also improves your braking ability and allows you 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.


Dependent Sway Control

Weight Distribution Built-In Sway Control

The Husky Center Line TS is a weight distribution system that works to keep your trailer in line with your tow vehicle to help prevent sway before it begins. Most of this work is achieved in the system head, which is responsible for about 75 percent of the tension in the system. Because the Center Line TS has so much tension in the head that holds the trailer steady at the connection point rather than relying on the frame brackets to keep the trailer in line, there is less popping and shifting while you drive. This weight distribution system is also noticeably quieter than similar models, which depend mostly on the steel-on-steel friction of the spring bars in the frame brackets to prevent sway.


Center Line TS Anti-Sway Frame Brackets

The spring bars attach to the trailer frame with fixed, sturdy steel brackets. They sit on top of the brackets instead of being suspended by chains like the bars that are on traditional weight distribution systems. The chain suspensions typically allow a good deal of side-to-side play in the system. The Center Line TS brackets eliminate that unwanted movement of the spring bars to better hold your trailer in line. In addition, the Center Line TS brackets create the steel-on-steel friction discussed earlier, which chain suspension systems are incapable of doing. When each spring bar on the Center Line TS system moves forward or backward, or side to side, it rubs along the bracket and creates friction. The resistance created by this action limits the movement of the spring bar, thus preventing further side-to-side movement of the trailer. So, while the Center Line TS's system head prevents most of the sway before it starts, the frame brackets create a backup system to help prevent any additional movement.


Head Tilt Adjustment

Washer-Style Head Tilt Adjustment

The Center Line TS system uses the traditional washer-style adjustment method to achieve the perfect tilt. Controlling the head tilt helps you to fine-tune the leverage and maximize the amount of tension in the whole system. 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.


Weight Distribution Hitch Shank Attachment

Once you get the desired tilt, bolt the head onto the weight distribution shank and slide the shank into your hitch receiver. The shank has multiple bolt holes, which allow you to raise or lower the head so that you can get the hitch ball in a good position to connect with your trailer. The hitch ball comes attached and pre-torqued. The weight distribution shank is included, but a standard shank from any manufacturer will also work with this system.


Tapered, Steel Spring Bars

Trunnion-Style Spring Bar Stabilizers

The Center Line TS spring bars are made of hardened, heat-treated steel. Thermal and mechanical energy are applied to the steel, resulting in a finished product that is durable and resilient to impacts. The thick, round ends of the spring bars work within the limits of the tight trunnions in the system head.


Tapered Friction Sway-Control Spring Bars

As they extend out, they taper down to flat, wide bars that sit securely on the frame brackets. The result is a system that is rigid enough to effectively distribute the weight of your trailer, while still allowing enough flex within the bars to ensure a smooth ride. Husky Center Line spring bars are interchangeable with each other. If you buy a new trailer or tow vehicle and you need to increase or decrease your capacity, you can simply buy new spring bars instead of purchasing a whole new system.


Attaching the Brackets and Spring Bars

The frame brackets of the Center Line TS are easy to install and simple to use. They clamp securely onto your trailer frame, and easily adjust up and down for multiple height options. Conveniently position them anywhere between 28-1/2" and 30-1/2" back from the center of the ball socket on your coupler. This helps to avoid frame-mounted objects such as gas tanks, toolboxes, generators, or battery boxes.


Center Line TS Spring Bar Lift Tool

The included spring bar lift tool is designed to make it easy to put the spring bars in place on the brackets.


Spring Bar Lift Tool Handle

The handle of the tool is round instead of flat for a more comfortable grip as you lift the bars. On the opposite end of the lift tool is a square cutout that can be used to tighten the outer bolts of the frame brackets.


L-Shaped Spring Bar Retaining Pin

Once you position the spring bars onto the brackets, each bar is secured with a removable L-pin. This pin is tethered to the bracket so that you won't lose it. Each Center Line TS bracket has built-in pegs near the end of the platform that help to hold the spring bar in place so that the L-pin doesn't have to. These pegs also act as a buffer between the spring bar and L-pin to limit any shifting and rattling. This also keeps the spring bars from rubbing against the L-pins, which could cause them to wear down and develop sharp edges.


Low Maintenance

Steel Trunnion Bearing Bolts

The system head is made of 2 pieces that come apart for easy maintenance. The trunnion hex bolts come lubricated and can be greased occasionally as needed. After 500 miles, you should check the torque on the trunnion hex bolts and the shank bolts to keep the system operating effectively.

To be honest, this is my first weight distribution hitch, so I'm not sure what normal is. I've pulled trailers all my life, mostly goose-neck, fifth wheel (Semi and RV), and small tongue trailers. I recently purchased my first tongue pulled RV, a small 22ft. And while the weight distribution isn't necessary, I'm pulling it with a GMC 2500HD with a Duramax, sway control was a large part of the decision. I've seen too many travel trailers on the interstate having to drive too slow because they were fighting a side wind and the trailer would start to sway if they got up to speed. In fact since purchasing this RV, I've passed way too many idiots driving 20-30 mph under the speed limit on the interstate because there was a side wind and they didn't have a weight dist. hitch to help with sway control. In fact, anyone pulling a tongue pulled travel trailer without a weight distribution hitch is a fool, no matter the size of the RV. IMHO So not having any experience with other weight distributing hitches, what can I say about this one: Even though weight distribution wasn't a concern, this hitch does seem to work great distributing the weight between the truck and the trailer. I have no complaints at all. As for sway control, I can't give it enough stars. It pulls like it's part of the truck. I've had it over 100 mph and it follows along without a hint of sway. BTW, I was going that fast to get around some fool pulling a travel trailer too big for the truck he was using without a weight distribution hitch swaying wildly from side to side running 50 on the interstate. It was obvious I needed to get around and away from this idiot as soon and as fast as I could. Only complaint I have is making turns it seems like it binds a lot, but I have nothing to compare it too. I have found a little grease on the bottom of the bars helps. Anyway, great set up and I can highly recommend this hitch. 734596

This should be a 5 star rating because it does exactly what it was designed to do. The only reason for not giving it the 5th star was due to the design of the spring bar lift tool. When I went to use the spring bar lift tool with the trailer connected to the truck the tool would hit the ground thus not allowing me to lift the spring bar into position. I found that using a jack to lift the truck/trailer up about 3 inches allowed me to get the spring bar lift tool in position to lift the spring bar into position. If the spring bar lift tool had a curve in the handle (instead of being straight) it would allow the spring bar tool to get into position. Later on I found that using the trailer hitch jack eliminated having to use a vehicle jack to raise vehicle/trailer. FYI the vehicle (1500 Dodge Ram) and trailer (Rockwood GeoPro 19fd) are level when using the HT32216 system. 704284

After following the directions to a tee, the trunnions bar would not line up or go on. I watched online videos and downloaded additional instructions and I am not doing nothing wrong. Finally adjusting the spring bar support lower then required, it worked and only the rear of the vehicle original measurements were off a 1/2". Adjusting the head assembly is still confusing. Once it's on it is all good and the trailer hauls better. 391960

Working Excellent, no problems with it. The only concern is the trunnion bars are rusting up and the support brackets has hughes signs of wear after a year or three short camping trips.

I have contacted Husky Towing and they do recommend for future reference using a little bit if traditional trailer bearing axle grease like part # L10333
UltraLube Biobased Disc/Drum Brake Wheel Bearing Grease - 16-oz Tub
$15.82
on the trunnion bars where they contact the lift brackets that are attached to your trailer. This will help to prevent future wear on your weight distribution system. I have some helpful links for your reference.

Review from a similar Center Line in Weight Distribution Hitch


This is a great hitch assembly. I bought the heaviest rating even tho my trailer is only 5000 lbs. It is so stable when towing it gives me great confidence...no sway AT ALL. It creaks when making sharp turns, but that is simply the friction and torque of the anti-sway bars moving in the brackets. I get some looks in campgrounds when turning...doesn’t bother me a bit. If I decide to upgrade to a heavier trailer I’m all set. Old school beliefs that you need a 5th wheel to achieve great stability is no longer valid, thanks to this heavy duty hitch. 680059

etrailer service was very fast, received the hitch within 3 days. Hitch is very well made and looks quite strong. Installation took about 3 hours, which included multiple adjustments to fine tune the level of my tow vehicle and trailer. Instructions could have included some more info in this regard. I have not towed my trailer yet so cannot comment on performance. I have a 2018 R Pod trailer (3800# gross wt) towing with a 2013 Honda Pilot (4500# tow rating). 644060

Install on this was fairly straight forward. The included shank did not have enough drop for my application but my truck is lifted a little bit so I don't fault Husky, I've gone about 15-20 miles on the hitch and it is a nice unit, quiet, works well and being able to reverse is very convenient.

Review from a similar Center Line in Weight Distribution Hitch


I haven't had a chance to use it much other than taking the trailer from where we bought it to where we store it, but it was pretty quick and easy to setup. Only took about 30 min or so without really knowing what I was doing to get it all hooked up. Once hooked up, my 1500 was able to pull the 31' camper without too much issue. While I only got going 45-50 mph, I didn't have any issues with swaying or anything and was able to keep everything hooked up while trying to squeeze it into the parking spot at the storage place, which made doing that less painful. 530140

With my 1/2 ton truck I was not very impressed with this hitches performance. I don't like using the tt electric Jack to lift the truck , still don't. Sway control not great. Now I have a one ton and and the hitch works well , no sway. Still don't like lifting truck with tt electric jack. Waiting for a jack failure as I feel I'm just asking for it. Overall I wish I had my old Reese back . The husky is showing wear at one year old . My Reese was 10 yrs old and didn't look like it was hardly used 337756

Have had for about a year. Tow 10k Toy Hauler. Works very well, happy with build quality. There is some rust on pieces that rub together/Sway bars. So gonna touch that up with paint before this camping season. Some minor sway still when I have UTV loaded in rv/trailer, not sure if because of extra weight in rear end/behind trailer axles. 481393

Review from a similar Center Line in Weight Distribution Hitch


I've used this hitch for about a year now, and it is everything the description says it is. The instructions are very complete and lead you through all the steps for correct assembly. I discovered that the tension required to control the sway for my trailer was less than I imagined. But, that will vary based on your trailer weight. Hooking up is much easier and less problematic than I thought it would be, and goes very quickly after some repitition. The ONLY off-putting thing in the entire process is the required torque setting for the bolts for the trunion head. [specs] !!!!!!!!!! I took mine to my local mechanic and we managed to torque them with his impact wrench, as mine wouldn't reach the required torque. That is actually a minor thing, because once it's set, you won't be resetting it/redoing it unless something goes wrong. Just be aware of it! I can back up, tow more quietly than my chain type, and it just works!! 359273

Review from a similar Center Line in Weight Distribution Hitch


The weight distribution and sway control work great and have held up well (over 6,000 miles on it). I was not prepared for how loud this hitch is. I have set it up different ways and it still pops and bangs every time I turn. So much so that people will come up to me and tell me the trailer was making a lot of noise. Without the bars it's a quite ride 581565


Comments
Over all it has been great. It has stopped the trailer from swaying, leveled the truck and trailer when loaded, and stopped the porpoising. The only down side I have is it is louder than I thought it would be. It pops and bangs so loud that its embarrassing to drive through my neighborhood at night

Thank you very much for the review, and I'm glad to hear that this weight distribution system is helping you to tow safely! The noise caused by metal-on-metal friction can be loud and is an unfortunate side-effect of weight distribution systems. I know it's not ideal, but you might consider removing the arms from the brackets prior to entering your neighborhood if you want to avoid the extra noise at night since you'll be moving slower through a neighborhood.

Review from a similar Center Line in Weight Distribution Hitch


I love this weight distribution system! I have a F150 (stock rear springs/hitch) which is pulling a 7'x16' enclosed aluminum trailer, which probably weights close to 5,000-6,000 lbs depending on how much I load it. Without this system, the trailer was tongue heavy and the truck had a noticeable rearward lean, handled poorly, etc. With this system, the truck sits within 1/2" level (the system is incredibly easy to adjust to achieve proper leveling depending on weight/loading), and I just got back from driving 1000+ miles towing the trailer, and the driving was incredibly easy compared to without this system. Those miles included highway, poorly paved highway, dirt roads, dirt roads with bad spring ruts/pot holes, tight parking lots, windy conditions etc. This system performed in all of them. Passing semis or vice versa? No sway whatsoever. There were even some nasty bumps at highway speeds (70mph) which induced some slight trailer wobble, which this system corrected right away. This system also allowed for tight turns, both in drive and reverse. The thing is quiet too! Detaching the system is very easy as well when the trailer is not in use. The torsion bars easily disconnect from the trailer brackets via the tool provided, and once off, you only have to remove the pin from the hitch side to remove the torsion bar. That way you don't have to carry the weight of the full system all at once back to the garage. All in all, I would highly recommend this product to anyone in the market for a weight distribution / sway control system. 245991

  • Best Weight Distribution System to Tow a 2015 Forest River Wolf Pup 16BHS with a 2013 Toyota 4Runner
    A weight distribution (WD) system with sway control (SC) is always recommended when the gross weight of the loaded trailer is at least half of the weight of the tow vehicle.

    In regards to the Husky Center Line Weight Distribution Systems like part # HT32216, the distance from the center of the coupler where the hitch ball sits to the center of the frame brackets which are 2-1/2" wide will need to be between 28-1/2" to 30-1/2". I have attached a photo of this for you to give you a visual. If the brackets are further back than 30-1/2" then you run the risk of the spring bars falling out during tight turns but if they are closer than 28-1/2" then you run the risk...

  • Replacement Spring Bars for Husky Center Line Weight Distribution System to Upgrade Capacity
    The spring bars for the Husky Center Line systems, like your Husky # HT32216, are indeed interchangeable and can be replaced in order to upgrade the existing unit. For your system, you can just install the Replacement Spring Bar # HT32329, which will increase its tongue weight capacity to 800-1,200 pounds. This comes with a quantity of 1 bar, so you will need to order 2 for your system. I have attached a short video demonstration on this product for you to check out.

  • Is a Weight Distribution System Needed for a Forest River Shamrock M-18
    I would absolutely use a weight distribution system when towing the 2001 Forest River Shamrock M-18 with your 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan. The reason for this is because the weight of the trailer is more than half of your tow vehicle's weight which is the rule for weight distribution. The 1-2" of drop you had while coupled may not seem like a big deal but this can really have detrimental effects on braking, stability, and is most likely causing the porpoising feeling you described. For...

  • Will Husky Center Line Weight Distribution System Fit 3 Inch Tall Trailer Frame
    If the loaded tongue weight of your Riverside Retro 177SE trailer is around 420 to 460 pounds like in the question you referenced then the Husky Center Line Weight Distribution System # HT32216 is a good option with regards to capacity but it will not work well with a 3 inch tall frame. The sway control brackets will only fit trailer frames that are 4 to 8 inches tall so there would be too much movement if they were to be installed on the tongue of your Riverside Camper. For a similar...

  • Weight Distribution System for a Winnebago Minnie Winnie with 3,500 Lb GVWR
    For your Winnebago Minnie Winnie, I highly recommend the Husky Center Line Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control part # HT32216 which is currently my favorite weight distribution system on the market due to how well it stacks up against the competition but for only a fraction of the cost. The Center Line has the perfect weight range for your total tongue weight. If you are under by 50-100 lbs or so then this will not be an issue at all you just don't want to exceed the maximum weight rating....

  • Can You Add Heavier Spring Bars to the Husky Center Line Weight Distribution Systems
    The 400-600 lb spring bars that came with the Husky Center Line Weight Distribution System part # HT32216 can absolutely be switched out for 600-800 lb spring bars using part # HT32330. You will need a quantity of two, one for each side. As you mentioned the system is the same except for the spring bars therefore the new spring bars will work well for you.

  • Can Husky Weight Distribution System be Used on Trailer Frame with 3 inch Dimension
    The frame hangers of the Husky Center Line Weight Distribution System part # HT32216 that you referenced can fit trailer frames that are at a minimum of 2 inches wide and a max of 8 inches tall. If you have 3 inches in either height or width the brackets would easily fit. Since you didn't specify which measurement referred to 3 inches that's about as specific as I can be. For trailer frames that are I-beam we've recommended people have the frame boxed so if you had to modify the frame you'd...

  • Is Weight Distribution Needed for a 2013 Toyota 4Runner Towing a 2015 Forest River Wolf Pup 16BHS
    I will be happy to help you out and clear up some things for you regarding weight distribution. The general rule of thumb is that if the trailer, when loaded and ready to tow, weighs at least half of the 4Runner's weight then you should use weight distribution. Based on the weight of your 2015 Forest River Wolf Pup 16BHS and 4Runner I do recommend using a weight distribution system. Weight distribution is a good idea in general because it not only helps redistribute the trailer tongue...

  • Replacement Parts for Husky Center Line Weight Distribution System
    It definitely sounds like something got bent or otherwise knocked out of place causing the bar to come off. You can adjust the frame brackets on a Husky Center Line Weight Distribution system such as # HT32216 to compensate for the one side being off. But I strongly urge you to correct the issue by replacing the damaged parts. The system will not be effective otherwise and presents a potential safety hazard should the system fail. You can replace the frame brackets using # HT32333 for...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for a 2017 Toyota 4Runner and H&H Enclosed Trailer
    The Husky Center Line Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control part # HT32216 is indeed a good choice for your 2017 Toyota 4Runner and H&H Enclosed Trailer. It has a total tongue weight range of 400 lbs - 600 lbs which your trailer should fall under with either one or two motorcycles on board. In addition to weight distribution the system also has two point sway control which will do a great job of preventing the trailer from swaying back and forth.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for 2015 Toyota Tacoma
    The Husky Center Line Weight Distribution System part # HT32216 is a great option for a 2015 Toyota Tacoma. This system is all inclusive and the hitch ball is already torqued down so you don't need to worry about getting additional parts and having them torqued down. Furthermore, it has integrated sway control which is actually more prevalent on lighter trailers than heavy ones so I highly recommend this feature. This system offers bolt-on installation as well.

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for Riverside Retro 177SE
    If your loaded tongue weight is 420 to 460 lbs the Husky weight distribution system part # HT32216 that you referenced would be a great choice as it has a tongue weight range of 400 to 600 lbs. This is a great system that will work well with your trailer. Only other option I'd recommend over this one is the Reese Strait Line part # RP66082 which has a tongue weight range of 200 to 600 lbs and also features only sway control that works to fight sway before it starts. Unlike the Husky...

  • Is a Weight Distribution System Needed for a 2015 Dodge Journey Towing a 3,500 Lb Trailer
    Absolutely, the weight of your trailer is well over half the weight of your tow vehicle which is the rule for whether or not a weight distribution system is needed. If you did not use a weight distribution system your vehicle could sag badly and effect both your braking and stability. Therefore, I highly recommend you use a weight distribution system. For this, I recommend the Husky Center Line Weight Distribution part # HT32216 because it comes with everything that you need and it...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for Forest River E-Pro 20BHS
    You are correct that you want to be within the weight range of a particular system and that has to do with the total tongue weight. That includes the loaded trailer tongue weight along with any cargo behind the rear axle of your truck. You want the total tongue weight to fall in the middle of the range of a weight distribution system ideally. If you travel with water tanks full, which most people don't unless you'll be dry dock camping, that will add significant weight. For your...

  • Can The Husky Center Line Weight Distribution Hitch Be Used With A Straight tongue and Surge Brakes?
    Great question! The Husky Center Line Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control - Trunnion - 6,000 lbs GTW, 600 lbs TW Item # HT32216 is not compatible with a straight tongue beam. For your trailer I recommend the Reese Pole-Tongue Adapter for Weight Distribution Systems - 7,500 lbs GTW, 750 lbs TW Item # RP3280. This adapter is designed for individuals that want to use weight distribution with straight beam tongues. It does require a weight distribution system that clamps on the top of frame....

  • Recommended Weight Distribution For 2015 Chevrolet Colorado Z71
    This Husky system is the correct one because, since your trailer weight will more than 50 percent of your vehicle's weight capacity, this system is rated correctly based on tongue weight and weight behind the rear axle. The Husky Center Line Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control # HT32216 is a great choice and great value. This system also helps prevent sway before it begins. Having sway control is a good addition to achieve a safe tow. The Center Line TS on this system has so much tension...

    Yes, it will be a good idea to use a weight distribution system on your 2019 Kia Sorento while towing a trailer that is 2,800 lbs dry. This is because the loaded weight of the trailer is likely well over half the actual weight of your vehicle which is the general rule for whether or not a weight distribution system is needed. For this, I recommend you use the Husky Center Line Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control part # HT32216. This is a bolt-on system that is fairly easy to setup....

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for Towing Jayco Hummingbird that Weighs 3,500 lb
    If the trailer you plan on towing weighs more than half of the weight of the tow vehicle or the tow vehicle is experiencing noticeable rear suspension sag we recommend the use of weight distribution. Your trailer weighing 3,500 lbs would be over half the weight of your Frontier so a WD system would be a great idea. The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of the setup. You should note that the weight of any cargo behind the...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for a 2019 Jayco Jay Flight 174BH
    Yes, a weight distribution system will help to reduce porpoising (bobbing up and down) as well as sway (if equipped with sway control) caused from the turbulence of passing semis. In regards to reversing, this is a very misunderstood subject about weight distribution systems as nearly all allow for you to reverse the trailer with the system still attached. The issue is when you try to reverse at a sharp angle which can then cause the spring bars to bind. If you do however need to reverse...
