Gen-Y Torsion Ball Mount or Shocker Hitch For 3 Inch Hitch Receiver  


What is better the shocker air or gen y hitch


Expert Reply:

Between the Shocker Hitch and Gen-Y Torsion ball mount, I recommend the Gen-Y. Its rubber torsion arms are going to absorb road shock naturally due to its design, while the Shocker Hitch requires constant maintenance that isn't needed with the Gen-Y.

It will improve the ride of your trailer substantially without the added work of maintaining an air bag, and because it the entire ball mount is designed to absorb shock, there isn't going to be stress/fatigue on it like there is on straight steel ball mounts. For your 3 inch hitch, you can choose from a few different options for drop:

- 6" Drop: Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount # 325-GH-1824

- 9" Drop: Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount # 325-GH-1825

- 12" Drop: Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount # 325-GH-1826

These all have a 21,000 lb capacity with the 2-5/16" hitch ball, and the only other thing I highly recommend is adding a lock to lock it to your receiver, with the strongest being an InfiniteRule lock with 42,000 lbs of shear strength, the InfiniteRule Hitch Lock for 3" Hitches # 34061073-D.
