Can Weight Distribution be Used Towing Setup that Requires 12 inches of Drop


Do you have a weight distribution set up that works with a 12” ? Thanks


Expert Reply:

We have drop shanks that can provide 12 inches of drop with a weight distribution system like the Curt shank part # C17125 which can do up to 13-3/4 inches of drop with a trunnion bar system or 15-3/4 inches with a round bar system.

The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of the setup when it is loaded and ready to tow. 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.

Once you know your tongue weight you will want to check out the link I attached that has all of the weight distribution systems we carry. You will be able to select your tongue weight from the filters to see what would be rated for your setup. All of the systems listed are without a shank so that you could use the # C17125 with it.
