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.

Video Transcript for Husky Weight Distribution HT32218 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Husky Centerline Weight Distribution System with Built-In Sway Control. This one's going to offer a ton way capacity of up to 1,200 pounds, with a gross towing weight capacity of 12,000 pounds. It is designed for a two inch by two inch trailer hitch receiver. It's rated for use with a weight distribution system. It's going to come with a two and five sixteenth inch hitch ball already installed and ready to go. This unit's designed to evenly distribute weight over the axles of your tow vehicle and trailer. It's going to offer improved stability and control.

Ultimately, it's going to create a more level ride for both the two vehicle and the trailer. This also is going to improve your braking ability and it's going to allow you to tow the maximum capacity of your hitch. One of the neat features about a system like this is that you do not have to disengage or remove the spring bars of the weight distribution system when going in reverse or in backing up. It's going to feature your built in sway control. That's going to limit side to side movement. This unit's going to feature tension in the system head and a rigid connection to the frame that keeps the trailer in line at all times.

It's really designed to help prevent sway before it even begins. Now a majority of the tension's going to come from the system head. About 75% of the tension comes from the system head. Whatever the system head doesn't catch, in terms of sway control, is going to be caught by the steel on steel friction in the brackets. That's going to help further reduce and prevent any sway that may occur. This system's a really nice design.

It's also known to be a much quieter than similar models. With this system you will experience much less popping and shifting while you're driving. It's going to feature the tapered spring bars. These are going to transfer ton weight evenly to the tow vehicle. They're going to be a heat treated steel construction that's going to ensure durability and flexibility.

They simply attach to the system head with a deretaining pin, so that makes it very easy to install and remove the bars from the head assembly. The unit's going to feature these no drill clamp on brackets. These can be adjusted a little on the trailer frame to accommodate frame mounted items such as battery boxes, gas tanks, tool boxes, or generators. Nice low profile design. Also with this system, you're going to notice that you have plenty of ground clearance. This system does not use lift chains. It's going to come with a removable L pins that are tethered to the brackets. That way you don't lose them or misplace them. Each bracket is going to have these built in pegs on each side of that L pin. That's going to help hold the spring bars in place, so that way the L pin doesn't have to do all the work. These pegs also act as a buffer between the spring bars and the L pin to limit shifting and rattling. The pegs also keep the bars from rubbing against the L pin, which means the pins will last longer. They're not going to sheer or develop sharp develop sharp edges. When it comes to getting the proper tilt at our head assembly, the desired head tilt is achieved with a traditional washer design. That way you can add or remove washers from the spacer rivet to tilt the head assembly up or down. That space rivet and washer system installs behind the head assembly and in front of the adjustable shank. There's a spot in there for the installation. Then once you have the proper tilt set, you can adjust the angle set bolt located right here at the bottom of the head assembly. The hitch ball is pre-installed. Nice elevated design. Pre-installed it's going to be torqued and ready to go. The unit's going to feature hardened and forged steel components that are extra strong, extra durable. It's going to have the nice powder coated finish that's designed to last a long time and resist rust and corrosion. This piece right here is the spring bar lift tool. This allows you to maneuver the spring bar safely onto and off of the brackets. It's also going to function as a tool to tighten the hardware for the outer bracket, the frame bracket. It's got that nice little cut out there, matches up with the square head on that bolt. You can use that as a tool to get those tightened and loosened as necessary. When it comes to maintenance with this system, very simple maintenance. The trunion hex bolts come lubricated. They can be greased occasionally as needed. The head assembly is actually two pieces that can come apart for easy maintenance as needed as well. When it comes to positioning the sway control brackets, these are going to be positioned 28 1/2 inches to 30 1/2 inches from the center of the ball socket on your coupler. You'll notice that they have a multi-hole design. Now these are extremely adjustable, very versatile brackets. They'll fit a maximum trailer frame height of up to eight inches with a minimum trailer frame width of two inches. I also took a measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the hitch ball. You got a measurement of around 13 inches with a system as square and level as possible. The shanks included, it can be used in either the drop or rise positions. If you have it in the rise position with the head assembly at the highest setting, it's going to give you a maximum rise of around six and a half inches. That's measuring from the inside top edge of the inaudible 00:05:02 hitch, or the top of the shank to the top of the ball platform here at the head assembly. If you have it in the drop position with the head assembly at the lowest setting, it's going to give you a maximum drop of an inch and a quarter doing those same measurements. The shanks going to feature six adjustment holes that are separated on center by an inch and a quarter. It's also going to come with your hit pin and clip to secure the unit inside your hitch. It's covered with a lifetime limited warranty. I also want to note that the unit comes with shims. That's going to be these right here. These shims can be used to fill the gap between the ears of the bottom plate weldment and the U channel. What we're talking about is this area right here. If you notice a gap, you can use the included shims to fill that gap. That's going to do it for today's look at the Husky Centerline Weight Distribution System with Built-In Sway Control.

First off all hat's off to ETrailer for the great customer service! Ordered my Husky product and they matched an online price that I found and gave me a credit and the 10% of the difference. Shipped quickly and arrived just in time to get installed and use. Took a while to get it installed and adjusted properly, but once it was adjusted it worked great. I already have a few hundred miles on the hitch pulling my trailer and have to say I love it! I bought this to replace my old chain style WD hitch and this Husky product is awesome with the built in sway control. Very easy to use as it is a "set it and forget it" setup. My old chain style was always a pain to get adjusted correctly and it seemed to be different everytime. This Husky TS hitch hooks up the same everytime. Also very quiet and no problems backing up with it being hooked up. My last trip was pretty windy and the TS did a great job keeping the sway down. If you are having second thoughts on purchasing this product, I say go for it. You won't regret it! 292601

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

The HT32218 weight distribution system works great and was easy to install. I installed it on a 2003 Chevy Silverado 1500 and I pull a 2017 trailer, length 31', tongue load 700 lbs. Also, I added the Timbren Suspension Enhancement hollow rubber springs which took the rear bounce away. Between the the two systems I have a good level ride, no bounce and very little sway (mostly from tractor trailers passing on the highway.) 479387

I finally decided to buy a camper for the family. The camper salesmen recommended a weight distribution hitch w/ sway control. I have not pulled anything 30 ft long so I began to study up. That's when I found etrailer. I read reviews and decided on the Husky Trunnion 12000 lb unit. The website was easy to order thru and I selected the 12000 lb. unit. Problem is, I was sent the 600 - 800 lb trunnion arms. I called etrailer and talked to Janice A. I explained the situation to her and she confirmed that I had in fact ordered the right system.....she stated that etrailer sent the wrong unit. She agreed to send new trunnion arms overnight to me with return information for the return of the wrong arms to etrailer. The part she sent arrived as discussed and were correct...and easy replacement. Best of all, I didn't miss a weekend camping. Janice A. was great and is an asset to her company. I will have to credit etrailer as well for outstanding service. Happy Customer....Highly recommend etrailer. 420645

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

I just returned from a 500 mile round trip on interstate, state, and county roads across three state towing a 700 lb. tongue weight, 8000 lb GVW, 30' RV with a 2003 GMC Sierra 2500HD 4x4. One way without the Husky, the way back with the Husky. I will never pull a trailer again without my Husky! The truck was level and noticeably more stable on all road surfaces and conditions. 511244

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

Easy install on my 26’ Featherlite car hauler. Filled with six full size Harley’s, gear, and luggage pulled behind my Chevy Dually and I couldn’t be happier. Level ride, no sway whatsoever, and easy on off. Best pricing around. Customer for life! 493392

No sway on the hwy. No noise.One thing to avoid is sharp angles when backing up into tihgt park spots. Disconect the sway bars if you need to but make sure they dont get in your way:).The ball part is reasonable heavy so prepare to use some muscle and if you keep your hitch like I do ( in storage, not on the truck) it will stay beautifuly steeley-shiny like the day you unboxed it.Overall a great hitch. Does the job like it supposed to do. 368048

I am very satisfied with the Husky weight distribution hitch I purchased. My trailer weighs over 8000 lbs empty and is 36 ft long. The Husky works great even when traveling on the highway in high winds. Much better than the bar and chain type. The fact that it doubles as a set control and backing up is no problem makes it the want to go. etrailer also had the best pricing. Thank you. 397888

I use this distribution/anti-sway hitch every time I pull my tt. Wouldn't leave home without it. It just make pulling the trailer more comfortable for me and my wife. Even in the wind the tail swing is virtually eliminated. The only complaint I have is it's a little noisy, but I can live with that. I give it 4 out of 5 just because of the noise. Other than that I'd give it a 5. 450080

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

I could have spent more money on a WDH, but this Husky is well made, had straight-forward installation instructions, and had the ball already attached. I did not want to buy a $80 socket to install a ball on other brands. Installation was a breeze and I look forward to using this on my 29-foot toyhauler that is prone to sway. 538945

Review from a similar Husky Center Line in Weight Distribution


The customer service at etrailer is fantastic...my original order was not in stock, so they called me and suggested this product at no extra charge, shipping was quick. The trailer I use this on is 23' 6,000 lb (loaded) travel trailer. So far, I used it on 2 long trips (6,000 miles total + several smaller trips in between) and absolutely love it. I can back up with no problem with the weight distribtution connected, it is fairly easy to install, takes some practice to disconnect (I don't have an electric tongue jack), the ball is bolted on but I had no issues with it, all the components are super heavy duty, the only complaint I have are the hangers where the rods sit...rubs metal on metal...no issues so far though, I just add some grease. Without this distribution system, i could feel the trailer sway in high winds and trucks passing...which made me nervous. Now, with this distribution system, it feels rock solid... there was some sway when we were in the high desert of Idaho with winds at about 30 mph (according to weather radio). No issues going down long steep winding grades...the steepest being 8%. 409211

Review from a similar Husky Center Line in Weight Distribution


Warning that the installation manual for the HT32215 has changed. Husky now has printed on the front of the manual (not the electronic version linked from eTrailer.com's website): "This product only fits trailer frames that are 4", 5", 6", 7" & 8" tall." In my extensive pre-purchase research, I did not uncover this fact and eTrailer was not aware of the manufacturer's limitations either...until the product was delivered and I looked at the delivered manual. It should also be noted that the eTrailer.com web listing for this hitch contains information that indicate both 2" and in another location 2 5/16" hitch ball comes with the hitch. The 32215 comes with the 2" ball. However, while I never installed the hitch, I did partially unpack it and the materials are all heavy duty, finish looks excellent, and I am fairly confident it would have performed well if it were not for the fact that my trailer frame was not tall enough. eTrailer itself had excellent customer service. They price matched (plus 10%) when I found the exact same hitch on another site for a lower price with no hassle at all. Plus when I discovered the issue with the hitch not fitting my trailer they discussed with me in detail, agreed to return the hitch, and helped me source one that would better fit my needs. I assume the refund process for the husky will go smoothly and I will have the opportunity to write a good review of both the new hitch and another eTrailer good news story shortly. So, -1 star for lack of clarify of minimum trailer frame height (systemic site wide) and the contradictory information regarding hitch ball size. Otherwise, looked like a good product and excellent customer support! 491862

Review from a similar Husky Center Line in Weight Distribution


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


Comments

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
$9.78
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.

This Husky weight distributing hitch replaced an older unit of a different brand that I could no longer adequately adjust, i.e. it was now beyond the capability of the unit. The new unit is installed and works great, though it is adjusted almost to the maximum of its capability. The support from etrailer.com was friendly, very helpful and the hitch system arrived one day earlier than initially projected. 277284

I received the HT32217 very fast. Weighs 116 lbs and seems really well built. I have not put it on the trailer yet, but the instructions look really well written and extensively illustrated. The folks at etrailer were very friendly and effective. I gave it five stars for build quality, outstanding instructions, and best-in-class service. 501209

I bought this distribution hitch a year ago and it has been the best investment I've made with regards to my RV. Prior to installing the hitch, towing the camper with even the slightest wind was a nightmare. Now I only experience sway on the rarest of occasions and even then it is only slight. I highly recommend this product. 401016

This hitch is still performing exceptionally well. Very well pleased with the purchase and etrailer’s customer service.

I have used this particular weight distributing hitch on two different trailers. On both it worked or is working very well. It lifts the back of the truck a couple of inches when making the hitch connection. It is a noticeable difference when using the bars and when not. I am very pleased. 435116

Ask the Experts about this Husky Weight Distribution
Do you have a question about this Weight Distribution?


  • Is Lubricating a Husky Weight Distribution System a Solution for Noise
  • Weight distributions systems use a lot of friction as a way to prevent sway. Because of that they make quite a bit of noise. I wouldn't recommend lubricating anything that's not outlined in the maintenance section of the manual as that might allow sway that the friction was preventing. Lubing the head would be a bad idea that I cannot recommend. The best advice I can give would be to turn up the radio. Also, tight maneuvers with weight distribution systems typically cause the bars...

  • Differences between Husky Centerline HD and Centerline TS Weight Distribution Systems
  • I checked with our Product Management staff about your question, because at this time we don't offer the Centerline HD systems and I'm not all that familiar with them. I found that the Centerline TS provides moderate sway control with trunnion bars that are torqued to specific tolerances to keep the spring bars in line. It is a complete system that includes spring bars. It has a more basic setup than the HD, it requires less to install, is more user friendly, and is purported to be lighter...

  • Shank with More Drop to Tow Trailer Level with Husky Center Line Weight Distribution System
  • The Husky Center Line weight distribution system # HT32218 uses a shank with 3/4 inch diameter holes that are spaced 1-1/4 inches apart on center. You will be able to use a shank with the proper amount of drop even if it is from a different manufacturer. Fastway shank # FA92-02-4214 has a maximum drop of 4 inches compared to the 1-1/4 inch max drop of the Husky shank so it will get you nearly 3 inches lower. For a little more adjustability you can use Reese shank # RP3215 which has...

  • Adjusting Husky Center Line Weight Distribution System For More Level Ride And Sway Control
  • The Husky Center Line Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control - Trunnion - 12,000 lbs GTW, 1,200 lbs TW # HT32218 may not have the bars level with the frame based on the bracket height needed to optimize the ride of your trailer. If you want to add more tension for the big wind and thus increased sway, you can raise those brackets to add more resistance to the trunnion bars. The other adjustment you can make is in the tilt of the hitch head by adding or removing washers. This adjustment...

  • Adjusting Head Of Husky Center Line Weight Distribution Hitch To Level Spring Bars
  • It sounds like you may need to adjust the angle of the head on your Husky Center Line Weight Distribution Hitch, part # HT32218. You might try removing a couple of washers in the head so that the bars are a little closer to the brackets. I have attached a drawing that shows where the washers are located.

  • Drop Shank Options for Husky Centerline Weight Distribution System
  • All of the weight distribution systems use the same shank mounting dimensions so other brands of weight distribution shanks can be used with your Husky Centerline TS. If you need just a few more inches of drop the Curt shank part # C17123 would work well. For a bit more of a drop the # C17124 would work well. The largest drop we have is the part # C17125 which probably would be too much for you setup.

  • Husky Center Line Weight Distribution Recommendation for 2018 Jayco Jay Flight 242BHSW

This figure also includes the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. I attached a help article on determining tongue weight for you to check out as well. You will want the loaded tongue weight of your setup to fall right in the middle of the tongue weight range of the system you use. Typically tongue weight is 10-15...

  • 2 1/2 Shank Recommendation for Use with the Husky Center Line HT32218 WD System
  • The Equal-i-zer Weight Dist Shank # EQ90-02-4900 would work well with your Husky WD System part # HT32218 and would fit your 2-1/2 inch hitch without the use of an adapter. For shanks that fit 2-1/2 inch hitches the # EQ90-02-4900 can do the most drop so it would be the best option we have.

  • Does Husky Center Line Weight Distribution System HT32218 Allow Backing Up Trailer
  • You do not need to remove the spring bars of the Husky Center Line Weight Distribution System # HT32218 when you back up the trailer. Disconnecting sway control is necessary only when you are using a basic friction style sway unit like # 83660. Such friction sway control devices can be damaged if left in place when you reverse. Because the Husky Center Line uses sway control that is built into it's head unit, there's no issue backing up. A weight distribution system should be chosen...

  • Will Adjusting Husky Weight Distribution Head Angle Down Put More Weight on Truck Front Axle
  • Adding washers to angle the head down could actually increase the weight at the ball which means it is pushing down more at the back of the truck and could make the problem worse. It would also put less tension on the spring bars. What you might need is more tension on the spring bars so it is lifting more on the truck end. You may have to experiment with different head angles and spring bar tension to get it to where you want it but there is enough adjustment in the Center Line system...
