How to Eliminate Sag When Towing With 2015 Ford Expedition With 2-Wheel Drive


Hi, Im looking to upgrade my rear suspension for towing my travel trailer. 2015 Ford Expedition. I want to eliminate sag when Im towing and also possibly increase carrying capacity. I have the 4x2 model. I see options for 4x4 models but not 4x2. Are there any products I can buy to get this done? Thanks...

We have a way for you to eliminate the sag when towing with your 2015 Ford Expedition (though I should note it is impossible to increase capacity), but I checked with every manufacturer for suspension upgrades and there is nothing that fits a 2-wheel drive '15 Expedition. So that means what you will need is a weight distribution hitch, which will eliminate sag and give you the added benefit of controlling any sway.

In order to choose the best weight distribution system you will first need to know your total tongue weight (TTW), which is the tongue weight of your fully loaded and ready to go trailer plus the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of your Expedition.

The tongue weight is typically between 10% and 15% of your trailer's GVWR but you'll want to verify it by using a scale such as the BetterWeigh Mobile Tongue Weight and Payload Scale # C51701. From there, simply add on the weight of the cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle and you'll have your TTW. The ideal system would be one in which your TTW falls somewhere in the middle of the weight distribution system's tongue weight capacity.

For example, if you have a TTW of 700 lbs you would need the Blue Ox TrackPro Weight Distribution with Sway Control # BLU47FR, which is rated for TTW of between 600 lbs and 800 lbs.

If you let me know your TTW or even the GVWR of your trailer I can make another recommendation for you. I have also added a link below to our entire selection of weight distribution hitches for you to take a look at.
