by:

Very well built! Heavyweight! The husky weight distribution hitch fits this shank like a glove. Only issue at all I have is after doing a lot of research and reading reviews I decided on this shank to allow for a even ride height for my camper and trailer. My truck is a ram 2500 with 6.5 lift and 35’s and honestly this shank may be to much of a drop. Not the companies fault. 100% my fault for going off of others reviews and recommendations. I will have to get some weight on it and see. If nothing else I may have to cut some off the bottom of the shank and use the two top most holes.




by:

I am very happy with this product. It is well made, heavy duty product. I recommend this for anyone who has a lifted truck and plans to tow safely.




by:

Extremely nice drop hitch. Heavy duty and very well built. I put it to use the day I received it and am very pleased.




by:

This is the second hitch I've bought cant say enough about etrailer first hitch was a fifth wheel then this drop for my dually. Needed the drop to pull a bumper pull tiny house. Great service fast shipping hitch looks well built. The only disappointment I have is it is made in China. I prefer buying American but it appears to be well made welds look great I hope its not made from recycled metal time will tell I hope this helps anyone buying a hitch




by:

I had used a dropped hitch to move the trailer but with a rating of only 5,000 lbs. I could never use the trailer at it's full 12,000 lb. capacity nor I could use the weight distributing hitch, the Curt Weight Distribution Shank rated @ 15,000 lbs. addresses both these issues in one part built exactly for this purpose, couldn't be happier with this purchase.




by:

Purchased a 12" distribution shank from e-trailer to tow my horse trailer on my new motorhome. I bought it from etrailer because they had the best price and free delivery. The distribution shank I received was awesome. It solid steel and out together really good. I could not have been happier. When purchasing any trailer items I always check with etrailer first. I have never been disappointed yet.




by:

Unlike previously posted reviews, the packaging of this hitch was exceptional, it was a box within a box, no damage what so ever. Product was as described and shipped promptly!




by:

I have a 97 F350 with four inches of lift and 37in tires. Works great with my truck for a level travel trailer.




by:

This is one heavy duty weight distribution shank. I am very happy with etrailer, the product, and the few days it took to deliver it.

Thank you ;-)




by:

etrailer.com had everything that I needed for a difficult set up that I had to arrange. Nice catalog of items, easy to use website, and everything was delivered in four days. Perfect!




by:

Great Drop hitch for pulling my Bike Trailer .




by:

Hi Nicky, this one is getting sent back thanks for taking the time to help establish the proper set up for my truck and trailer!




by:

This thing is a tank! The square tubing is solid steel, where many are hollow. The gusseting and the welds are super thick, and the coating is great. It may be more weight than some people want to deal with, but nothing on this is going to break. Fast shipping!




by:

very happy with the products, fast shipping




by:

Good place to find different applications. Cordial people when I call; very helpful. Hope it continues.




by:

I am still waiting to see if my second delivery will be right to complete this piece




by:

Quality product, has worked flawlessly every time.




by:

Ordered it on Monday afternoon showed up the next day when I got home from work. Fast free shipping and a very good price. The drop shank will be perfect for my lifted truck.




by:

Product is extremely stout and should work for your heavy duty application




by:

I feel like the down bar should haves more holes for adjustment, I had to drill more into the bar




by:

As advertised. Did have to drill a couple of extra holes in it as there was nothing between this drop and the next shorter one. also cut off unneeded length.
Works fine now.




by:

Great product well built for super lifted trucks. Great company to do business with.




by:

This shank was very well made. Just not the right length. Had to get a smaller one. I had no trouble buying it or returning it. They where very helpful and nice. The delivery time was very fast too. Went with the normal delivery and it was at my door in 2 days. Was very surprised. Definitely would recommend.




by:

I was very impress with how quickly it got to me! It was just what I needed. I would choose you to do buiness with anytime.

  • Can a Curt Weight Distribution Shank be Used with a Hayman Reese Weight Distribution Hitch
    The Curt weight distribution shank # C17125 should be compatible with your Hayman Reese weight distribution system though the 2 have not been tested together to confirm fit. The shanks 3/4 inch diameter holes are spaced 1-1/4 inches apart on center. If the head unit on your system matches up to those dimensions then you can use this shank.

  • Need Shank to Lower Hitch on my 2005 Ford F350 with 6 Inch Lift and 38 Inch Tires to Tow My Camper
    The Curt shank, part # C17125, provides a drop of 15-3/4 inches of drop with a trunnion bar system or 16-1/4 inches with a round bar system. The drop is measured from the hitch pin hole to the top of the hitch ball. I am including an article on how to choose the correct ball mount. By taking the measurements, as stated in the article, you can determine the amount of drop needed to give you the safest, most comfortable, towing experience. Feel free to email me back with your measurements...

  • Distance from the Bottom of the Shank to the Bottom of the Drop Portion of the Curt Shank # C17125
    From the bottom of the shank that slides into a 2 inch hitch to the bottom of the Curt Weight Distribution Shank # C17125 it measures 20-1/2 inches.

  • Largest Drop Weight Distribution System Shank Availability
    That's a pretty low trailer you have. To compute the correct amount of drop you would need you need to measure from the top of the hitch opening to the ground and from the bottom of the coupler to the ground. Based on the dimensions you just gave you would need a drop of 19 inches. The weight distribution shank we offer that has the most drop is the part # C17125 which can do up to 15-3/4 inches of drop. Since 16 inches from the ground is pretty low for a trailer I am hoping that was either...

  • Recommended Curt Weight Distribution Shank for a 2007 Chevy Silverado 2500HD with 7 Inch Lift
    The weight distribution shank we offer that has the largest amount of drop is part # C17125. This 20-7/8" tall shank has a 16-1/4" drop when used with round-bar systems and a 15-3/4" drop when used with trunnion-bar models. It fits 2" trailer hitch receivers and is designed for use in the drop position only. It's 9" from the center of the hitch pin hole to the furthest edge of the vertical adjustment shank, so it won't create the addtional clearance you're looking for between your trailer...

  • Needing Weight Distribution Shank to Provide 12 Inches of Drop
    The Curt # C17125 measures 12 inches in overall length and will provide a drop up to 16-1/4 for a round bar weight distribution system or up to 15-3/4 for a trunnion bar system. Since you need a 12 inch drop, the # C17125 would work for you, and would allow for some adjustability if needed.

  • Will a Curt Weight Distribution Shank Work with a Draw-Tite Weight Distribution System
    Yes, the Curt weight distribution shank # C17125 will work with the Draw-Tite head that you already have! I have included a link to a video review of this shank for you.

  • Troubleshooting Sagging Suspension with Lifted Suspenion Truck and Weight Distribution
    Lifted trucks don't always handle the best when towing a trailer. A lot of times the lift components weren't intended for any towing either so you'd want to check with the manufacturer of the lift as well. The two reasons rear suspension will sag with a WD system installed is that it's either not set up properly or the system is not rated high enough. Can you verify the tongue weight of your trailer and the tongue weight range of your Husky Centerline Weight Distribution system?

  • Can Weight Distribution be Used Towing Setup that Requires 12 inches of Drop
    We have drop shanks that can provide 12 inches of drop with a weight distribution system like the Curt shank part # C17125 which can do up to 15-3/4 inches of drop with a trunnion bar system or 16-1/4 inches with a round bar system. The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of the setup when it is loaded and ready to tow. This figure also includes the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. I attached a help...

  • Weight Distribution Drop Shank Recommendation for Needing 11-3/4 inches of Drop
    You'd need a weight distribution shank that can provide 11.75 inches of drop. For that we have the Curt shank part # C17125 which can provide up to 15-3/4 inches of drop when used with a trunnion system. This fits a 2 inch trailer hitch and has the standard bolt hole dimensions so it fits the standard weight distribution head designs from nearly all manufacturers.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution Shank for Lifted Truck
    It sounds like you're needing a weight distribution shank. You're needing something with a 14-3/4 inch drop. I can get that with the 16-1/4 inch drop when used with a round bar weight distribution system that's provided by the Curt # C17125 weight distribution shank. If you have a trunnion bar system, this will have a drop of 15-3/4 inches. The adjustment hole spacing in the shanks is standard, so this should work fine as long as your weight distribution head is compatible with 1-1/4 inch...

  • Weight Distribution Shank for Curt Weight Distribution System that Needs 10 inch Drop

  • Which Weight Distribution Shank Is Best For 2020 Silverado 3500 AT4 With 2-1/2 Receiver?
    The best option here is to install a 2-1/2" shank to fit your receiver and also find one that has the necessary drop for your new truck. The Curt Weight Distribution Shank - 12" Long - 15-3/4" or 16-1/4" Drop - 1,500 lbs TW # C17125 would be a good option to look into. It is 12" long and offers up to 15-3/4" drop and it fits your 2-1/2" receiver.

  • Weight Distribution Shank with 9 Inch Drop for New Truck
    For your application we only have 1 solution and that is the Curt Weight Distribution Shank # C17125. This fits a 2" hitch receiver, has up to a 15-3/4" drop, and has 15K towing and 1.5K tongue weight ratings. This isn't the same brand as Blue Ox but the shank is still compatible with your system. Attached is a review video for you to check out.

  • Compatibility of Weight Distribution Head and Shank Parts from Different Brands
    Most weight distribution heads and shanks are interchangeable between brands since they use a standardized hole size of 3/4-inch and a center-to-center hole spacing of 1-1/4-inches. The Pro Series head assembly # 58333 and the Curt shank # C17125 are compatible. The shank has a weight rating of 15K and the specific spring bars in your Pro Series system will also have a weight rating that must be appropriate for the trailer tongue weight.

  • Replacement Weight Distribution Shank to Offset Lifted Tow Vehicle
    The shank parts of weight distribution systems are interchangeable among brands since they all use standardized hole sizing and spacing. So you could use a replacement shank like Curt # C17125 which would provide a drop of up to 15-3/4-inches when used with the Steadi-Flex's trunnion bars. This is the most drop of any shank we offer. You may care to review the linked video that explains how to choose the correct WD system for your trailer's actual loaded tongue weight.

  • Weight Distribution for 900 lb Tongue Weight and 11 inch of Drop
    That's a lot of drop! But we do have the Curt weight distribution shank part # C17125 which is capable of up to 15-3/4 inches of drop that would work great for you. You'd need to use a trunnion style Curt system like with the part # 17302 so that the drop wouldn't be too much. This system will work great with 900 lb of tongue weight as well.

  • Tall Drop Shank Available for Use with Husky Weight Distribution on Lifted Vehicle
    You are going to need quite a bit of drop since your truck is lifted so high. The one with the most drop that we offer that would work well is the Curt # C17125. This shank has 20-7/8 inches from the top of the shank down to the very bottom like what you see in the picture I attached. For a drop shank with not quite as much drop we have the # C17124 which has 13-1/2 inches instead. Both of these will work with a Husky weight distribution system.

  • Shank Recommendation to Allow Weight Distribution 10-1/2 inches of Drop
    You are in need of a drop of 10-1/2 inches to allow your trailer to be towed level. The Curt shank part # C17124 that you referenced can't quite get that low so instead you would need the Curt Shank part # C17125 which can do a drop of up to 15-3/4 inches. This is also a fit with your Blue Ox Sway Pro.

  • Drop Weight Distribution Shank Availability
    We have drop shanks for weight distribution systems like the # C17125 which would provide 15-3/4 inches of drop or for less drop you would want the part # C17124 which has 9 inches of drop. Feel free to send me a picture of your setup and what specific amount of drop you would need and I'll give you a more specific answer if the two shanks I mentioned wouldn't work. Nearly all weight distribution system manufacturers use the same dimensions for their shank attachment so we have found that...

  • Drop Shank Recommendation for Lifted Truck Using Weight Distribution
    For a lifted truck you will need a drop shank like the part # C17125 to use a weight distribution system like part # C17333 and still tow the trailer level. You didn't say how much drop you would need but to determine that you will need to measure from the top of the hitch opening down to the ground and then measure from the bottom of the coupler on the trailer when it is sitting level down to the ground. The difference between those two dimensions is the amount of drop you would need. The...

  • Weight Distribution Shank Recommendation for Towing with Lifted Suspension Vehicle
    For lifted vehicles we have the drop weight distribution shank part # C17125 or part # C17132 to allow the trailer to be towed level. The part # C17125 can do a drop of up to 15-3/4 inches and the # C17132 can do a drop up to 8 inches. What's great about these shanks is that not only do they fit the Curt weight distribution systems like what you have but they also fit other brands as well since they are all made to the same dimensions.

  • Weight Distribution Shank Recommendation for Needing Hitch Drop of 10 inch
    The Curt shank part # C17124 can do up to a 9-1/2 inch drop when used with a round bar setup like your Fastway E2 round bar weight distributions system. The next largest drop we have would be the Curt shank part # C17125 which can do a drop of up to 16-1/4 inches which may be a bit too extreme.

    The 2-inch shank parts of weight distribution systems like the Curt TruTrack # C17500 are standardized so you can replace any shank with another from any brand to give you the amount of drop you need to keep the hitched trailer level. All 2-inch shanks appear on the page I linked for you. Among these is the Curt shank # C17125 which offers drop up to 15-3/4-inches with trunnion bars like those in the TruTrack # C17500.
