Can a Weight Distribution with Sway Control System be Used on Lifted Truck


Hello, I have a lifted truck with a 6 inch lift. Is it possible to use your anti sway system on a truck with a lift like mine?


Helpful Expert Reply:

You can certainly use a weight distribution system on your lifted truck. The key will be to find a weight distribution shank that offers you enough drop to be able to tow your trailer level. Weight distribution systems are available without a shank so that you can choose the one that works best for you.

For example, if you have a trailer that has a loaded and ready to tow tongue weight somewhere around 1,000 pounds, a system like the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution with 4-Point Sway Control System # EQ37121ET is a great option. I recommend the Equal-i-zer system because the 4-point sway control system works well and has less components that some similar system and the Equal-i-zer will not require you to drill into your trailer's frame. This system does not include the weight distribution shank so you can choose the one with the correct rise/drop for your trailer. Say you needed a 6 inch drop in order to tow the trailer level, the Equal-i-zer WD Shank # EQ90-02-4340 that offers a maximum 6 inch drop would work well.

I've attached links that will show you all of the weight distribution shanks and the weight distribution systems that come without shanks that are available.

If you'd like to let us know your trailer's loaded and ready to tow tongue weight and the drop necessary to tow your trailer level, we will be happy to make a more specific recommendation for you.
