Review of the Convert-A-Ball Cushioned Weight Distribution Shank on a 2013 Chevrolet Silverado


Today on our 2013 Chevrolet Silverado, well be test fitting Covert-A-Ball Cushioned weight distribution shank for 2-inch hitches part number AMAC1. This weight distribution shank helps to eliminate the push and pull feeling and clank often experienced when towing heavy trailers. The multiple attachment holes allow you to level your weight distribution head. This shank rated at 10,000lbs. This shank is also compatible with Convert-A-Ball accessories including the Pintle Hook combo with balls part number PH4, the ball mount adapter part number BA1 and the Clevis pin adapter part number CA1. The accessories attached with a 5/8-inch hitch pin.

Now to begin the installation, well need to get the hitch height. To do this, well measure from the ground to the top of the receiver tube opening. In this case, its 18 inches. Now this measurement can vary to the tire size, style of hitch or any other accessories that maybe on the truck. So its a good idea to go ahead and measure yours.

Now the shank can be used in both the drop and rise positions. In the drop position, the bottom of the mount sits 9 inches from the ground. When using the ball mount adapter, part number BA1, the ball will sit at 10 inches from the ground. When used in the rise position, its maximum rise is 23 inches from the ground. Now keep in mind, this is using a hitch that is 18 inches from the top of the receiver tube to the ground.

Now the adapter heights can be changed by 1 inches depending on which holes you use on the ball mount. That does it for the Convert-A-Ball Cushioned weight distribution shank for 2-inch hitches part number AMAC1 in conjunction with the Convert-A-Ball ball mount adapter part number BA1 on our 2013 Chevrolet Silverado. .
