When trying to decide on a proper weight distribution (WD) system for your towing rig, you will need to know the total tongue weight (TTW) of your set-up. The total tongue weight will be a fully loaded ready to tow trailer, plus any weight located behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. You want to use a system where your total tongue weight will fall in between the WD system's tongue weight range. I have attached an article that will explain how to find the TTW of your towing rig.

Once you have found your total tongue weight, you will be able to decide on the correct system for your towing application.

With this in mind, I recommend the Equalizer Weight Distribution System w/ 4 Point Sway Control, like # EQ37120ET. This system has two points of sway control integrated into the head and then the trunnion bars have two other points of friction where they attach to the trailer brackets. This system is a really nice and clean system that allows backing up without disconnection. It also comes with the hitch ball needed for the system.

To install the ball on the hitch, the Equalizer Thin Walled Socket, # EQ70-00-4800, will allow you to install the trailer ball to the hitch head due to the close tolerances.
