The adjustments for the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Systems like part # EQ37120ET will pertain to adding and removing washers from the head to try and get the spring arms as parallel with the trailer frame as possible. However, this may not completely level your vehicle. The majority of these systems are only designed to gain back half of what you lost and since your vehicle is lifted, there is an even greater chance that the vehicle will not be completely level.

If you still seek further leveling then I recommend adding a set of suspension enhancements such as the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System part # TGMRCK25D which should be able to get the vehicle back to level while towing your trailer. The nice thing about this system is that it won't affect the ride quality while unloaded and they are very easy to install (see video).

In order to compensate for the lift you will want to use increments of part # TA25722-90F00 and part # TA25723-90AD00 until you have a height of spacer that matches the suspension lift on your truck.

The Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System part # TGMRCK25D have a springs that measures 5-3/16" tall. There should be a 1/2" to 1-1/2" gap between the bottom of the spring and contact point when empty for maximum effectiveness.

Question:

So i have figured out if i get 4 inches of spacers per side i will have a unloaded gap of 1.31 inch. Whats the max number of spacers you should use ? If these slide into the old bump stop holders, how do you attach the spacers ?

The maximum number of Timbren Spacers For Raised Frame Vehicles that can be used is four per side so you should be fine. The 1.31" gap will be perfect for your needs as they recommend between 1/2"-1-1/2". The spacers may or may not need to be trimmed just slightly in order to fit into the jounce spring cups. Please note you will also need a longer bolt in order to install them as you will be adding the spacers.
