The Fastway e2 Weight Distribution w/ 2-Point Sway Control - Round - 10,000 lbs GTW, 1,000 lbs TW # FA94-00-1061, has a shank that will drop 1-5/8 inches from top of hitch receiver opening, so if you measure from the ground to the top of that inside receiver opening and then subtract the height to keep your trailer level, you will know what drop is needed from your weight distribution system shank.

For a Fasway system, I recommend the Equal-i-zer Weight Dist Shank - 12" Long - 10" Rise, 6" Drop - 600 to 1,400 lbs TW # EQ90-02-4300. This will give you the drop you need for a level ride with 1-1/4 inch incremental adjustments.

For your 2007 Ford F-250, I recommend the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution Shank - 12" Long - 9-1/2" Rise, 4" Drop - 1,200 lbs TW # FA92-02-4214. This will give you a maximum drop of 6 inches with a round bar system. This adjusts in 1-1/4 inch increments.

If you want a larger drop based on your lift and tires, you can use the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution Shank - 12" Long - 12-1/2" Rise 6-1/2" Drop - 1.2K TW # FA92-02-4315. This will give you up to an 8-1/2 inch drop for your round bar system.
