  • Correct Weight Distribution Shank for Truck with 8" Lift
    The weight distribution shank we offer with the most amount of drop is the Equalizer Weight-Dist Shank part # EQ44FR which offers up to 12" of drop. I have attached a full list of options below if you feel this is too much. That said, measuring would be the only way to know for sure how much drop is needed since there are several variables for each application. In order to measure, take the distance from the ground to the top inside edge of the trailer hitch and then subtract the distance...

  • Drop Shank for Reese Mini Weight Distribution Hitch
    We used to carry the Reese Mini Weight Distribution System that you have and we know that it used a standard weight distribution shank like the Reese part # RP3344 that you referenced. Since you were looking for a drop of 9 to 11 inches of drop this would get you close but you'd need the part # EQ44FR instead which can do a drop of up to 12 inches.

  • Does the Curt C17123 and Equal-i-zer EQ44FR Weight Distribution Shanks Use Solid Or Hollow Shanks?
    Yes, both the Curt Welded Weight Distribution Shank # C17123 and Equalizer Weight-Dist Shank # EQ44FR are both made with solid steel shanks. They do not use tubing. They both have the 1-1/4" vertical bolt 3/4" hole spread and will fit most weight distribution hitches.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution Sway Control for 2020 Jayco Jay Flight SLX
    According to my research, the tongue weight of your new Jayco Jay Flight will be somewhere between 1000-1350 lbs, so you'll want to be sure to get a system that can handle that tongue weight. Also, because travel trailers are especially vulnerable to sway caused by oncoming or passing traffic, it's pretty crucial that you use a weight distribution system that has an integrated sway control component. I'd recommend going with an Equal-i-zer system like # EQ37141ET which is compatible with...

  • How to Get More Drop With Curt Trunnion Style Weight Distribution C24UR
    You can get more drop but will need a new shank for the Curt Trunnion Style Weight Distribution System # C24UR. The same exact system does not come with a different shank, which is why you'll need to get the shank separately. For 8 inches of drop, the 2 inch shank you'll need is the Equalizer Weight-Distribution Shank - 2" Hitch - 12" Drop x 15" Rise - 600 to 1,400 lbs TW # EQ44FR. This will give you the drop you need, and the only other thing required will be the hitch ball, the 2-5/16"...

  • Best Weight Distribution System To Use With a Lifted Jeep Gladiator Towing A Trailer With 11" Drop
    First you will need the Equalizer Weight-Dist Shank # EQ44FR. This shank is capable of a 12", 10-3/4", 9-1/2" or 8-1/4" drop. To select the proper weight distribution system to work with this you will need to find the tongue weight and total weight of the trailer. For a trailer with a tongue weight of 200-600lbs and maximum trailer weight of 6,000lbs or under the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution # EQ37061ET will be the hitch you need. This system will include a 2" hitch ball that will...

  • Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Without Shank For Forest River Vibe Trailer w/ 840 lb Tongue Weight
    We can absolutely help you out here, and it makes sense that you'd be getting more sway than you want with an 8,000 lb Fastway system since it isn't rated quite high enough for the 840 lb tongue weight of your loaded 2021 Forest River Vibe. You did make a great choice with the Equal-i-zer weight distribution hitch with a tongue weight capacity of between 600 lbs and 1,000 lbs, which is exactly what you'll need for your tongue weight. The Equal-i-zer's four points of sway control is double...

  • Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Hitch For 2019 Yukon Denali XL Towing 34 Foot Forest River Flagstaff
    I recommend the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution # EQ37101ET for your 2019 GMC Yukon XL Denali hauling a Forest River Flagstaff weighing 8,300lbs with 830lbs of tongue weight. This hitch is rated for a trailer up to 10,000lbs with a tongue weight of 600-1,000lbs. It does not include a shank so you will be able to find a shank with the correct amount of drop from the list below. 1/4" to 4" of Drop # EQ90-02-4200 2-1/4" to 6" of Drop # EQ90-02-4300 5-1/4" to 9" of Drop # EQ90-02-4400 8-1/4"...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution Hitch System for a 2010 Forest River Salem 36BHBS Travel Trailer
    I recommend using the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System # EQ37120ET with your 2010 Forest River Salem 36BHBS. This particular system is rated for a trailer up to 12,000lbs with a tongue weight of 800-1,200lbs and has a maximum drop of 3". Your Salem will have left the factory with 720lbs of tongue weight and a maximum GVWR of 10,880lbs.
