Upgraded Shank To Use Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System On a 2017 Chevy Silverado 2500

Question:

Ive had the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System w/ 4-Point Sway Control - 12,000 lbs GTW, 1,200 lbs TW for about 4 years now. The shank fit fine on my old Chevy Tahoe. Last year I bought a 2017 Chevy Silverado 2500. The receiver for the hitch is about 2 3/4. I bought a sleeve for my hitch to fit, and it does work, but I seem to get alot of play in the hitch and it makes for a very bouncy ride with the trailer. Can I get a shank for the hitch that will eliminate that bounce? Everything seems to be set correctly. Trailer is straight with the truck. No sag in either the trailer or the truck.

Expert Reply:

I have exactly what you need for your Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System part # EQ37120ET, the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Shank part # EQ90-02-4700. This shank has the same rise/drop as the one that came with the above system but has the larger 2-1/2" shank that will fit securely inside the receiver tube opening on your 2017 Chevy Silverado 2500. The receiver tube opening on your 2017 Chevy Silverado 2500 is 2-1/2", not 2-3/4". This will reduce rattle and play tenfold when compared to a reducer sleeve.
