Shank offers up to a 10" rise and a 6" drop for your Equal-i-zer weight distribution system. Measures 12" long and fits 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" trailer hitches.


We recently upgraded from a Ram 1500 to a Ram 2500. The 2500 receiver is considerably higher off the ground and is 2 1/2" rather than 2". I have a Camco EAZ-Lift R3 Weight Distribution Hitch and the ball was too high off the ground. The Equalizer Weight Distributing Shank is exactly what I needed to get our Lance camper level and a 2 1/2" to 2" reducing sleeve is no longer needed. Note: It is considerably heavier than the original shank - 60 lbs. total with the ball mount. We've towed over 600 miles without a problem. Highly recommend!


Exactly what I needed. I had the equalizer hitch for my RV, but recently bought a new truck changing the height requiring a drop and the shank went from 2" to 2 1/2". Got it wrong the first time (my fault), but many thanks to etrailer for working with me to get the right size and arranging my return of the wrong size. The hitch is made by Equalizer and works perfectly with their hitch. OEM parts for sure. So glad to get this sorted out and ready to use. Many thanks to etrailer and Paul for helping me with this item.


Works really well! Glad to get rid of the sleeve inside my receiver and it helped me level my trailer better by dropping the hitch down. Works well with Fastway e2 setup


Excellent fit for a 2022 F350 ( 7.3L Gas engine) 2 1/2” receiver.
Rv dealer agreed to swap out my old 2” shank with this 2 1/2” one for the equalizer e4


This hitch was perfect for my truck with a 3 inch receiver. I full time RV and I don't have to use a sleeve over my 21/2 inch shank.


Bought this to upgrade my Curt hitch from 2" to a 2 1/2" receiver. Changing over to the new shank was simple and the upgrade only took about 30 minutes including making all the necessary adjustments to level truck and trailer. Price was the lowest that I found and free delivery is always appreciated.


As advertised. Gave the perfect amount of drop for my 2022 Ram 2500


When the original manufacturer of my Husky weight distribution hitch couldn't or wouldn't help me with my new truck requirements, I got a taller truck, etrailer's awesome customer service found a perfect alternative. Equalizer brand makes a 2.5 inch to 2 inch drop hitch shank and the kind folks at eTrailer were knowledgeable and helpful and found I exactly what I needed


Just purchased Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD 4X4 and realized after purchase that the trailer hitch was now a 2 1/2" receiver instead of a 2". I tried using the old 2" shank/drop sleeved to 2 1/2" and it was a pain keeping holes lined up to pin to the hitch. I had the sleeve tack welded to the 2" shank and the welds broke the first trip out. The Equalizer 2 1/2" shank to 2" drop was just what I needed. I bolted my old Weight Distribution hitch to the new drop and took my 30ft travel trailer for a spin no worries. Great purchase. Delivered promptly and in good condition. Customer service was fantastic. Shopping at was easy. I'll be back


Upgraded my TV from a '14 Expedition to a '17 F250 with off road package. This was just what I needed to get the correct drop for the WD hitch for my travel trailer (Rockwood Mini Lite 2516s). Especially like that it is a 2.5" shank so I don't have to use a spacer.


When I bought my Equalizer trailer hitch I had a Ram 1500 with a 2" receiver for the hitch. The truck and trailer hooked up as advertised. But I was very concerned that my trailer weight and tongue weight were at the maximum capacity for my truck, so we bought a Super Duty F-250.
Problems were two fold, one the receiver on my F-250 is 2-1/2"; and two, with using a reducing sleeve , the top of my ball was 3" higher than my trailer. I called etrailer and was told I needed a different shank. They recommended a EQ90-02-4900.
I received the new shank yesterday and installed it. The top of the ball is now 3" lower, exactly where it needs to be for my trailer. Plus, the new shank is 2-1/2” and fits my trucks receiver. I did not realize that the hitch pin lock I bought from etrailer isn't long enough to fit the 2-1/2" receiver, so now I am waiting for that delivery.

Good product and good people!


Just the right hitch I was looking for. Perfect amount of drop I needed to level out my 33" Travel Trailer on 2016 Ram 2500HD.

Great Product, No problems.
SILAS - 07/03/2018


I switched from a 2015 f150 2wd to a 2019 f250 4wd
The jump in reciever height was significant. Spent a long time trying to figure out what shank I needed. Did a lot of research.. I hated the 2 in shank becuase of the sleeve I'd have to use with my husky centerline ts system. At first I didn't know they even made a drop shank that would fit in 2-1/2 in reciever and still fit on the weight distribution hitch.. I was pleasantly surprised.. so this shank dropped my ball height to 22 inches pretty close to where I needed it to be I thought about getting the curt shank with 8 in drop but would have put the shank closer to the ground then what I wanted.. Haven't hooked up to camper yet but so far so good.. Thanks etrailer..


I ordered this after I purchased a new pickup with a 2.5 inch receiver. The item arrived on time and fits my vehicle snugly! It also attached to my equalizer Hitch without any problems.


Fast delivery and great product. I was looking for a drop hitch that would allow me to get rid of the reducer sleeve. This worked perfect.


Part received in great shape and was approximately $50 cheaper than ordering directly from Equal-i-zer's factory. Very quick delivery. Initially I was told it would be back ordered and would be over a month before delivery. Shortly afterwards, received update that it was in stock and was delivered within a week from the order.


I needed a new drop shank to set up my E2 hitch due to a move from a F150 to my new F250. (2.5" shank and 6" drop) After a chat with Tiffany on the website we figured out what I needed and I placed the order.

The only reason for 4 stars is having to pay 2 day shipping when "free shipping" had the same delivery date.

Thanks for great info and help!


Good heavy duty product Very pleased


Shank did the job as recommended by the very patient sales folks. Shipping was faster than e pected, too. Overall we are very pleased and thankful for etrailer


I recently bought a new truck and needed a 3" extra drop. I reachout to Robert at e-trailer. Robert wast able to set me up with the perfect shank. They did not try to over sell, and made sure my needs were met. Thank you


Very satisfied will order again


Set it up yesterday and it’s going to do what it’s supposed to. I’m using Curt WD parts and they fit perfectly. Have installed on a 2021 F250. My only complaint is it’s not powder coated it’s painted. The minute I slid it into the hitch, the paint chipped off in large pieces exposing bare metal. It’s surely going to rust so I will not keep it on all the time and just keep some WD-40 on it. If I didn’t need it right away, I would return and go with Curt which is powder coated

Sorry about the paint. Even powder coated items need maintenance. Here is a help article regarding rust:
-- Etrailer Expert Sierra K - 09/21/2021


Arrived on time. The package was a little beat up,but the item is solid steel so no big deal.


The website had a large selection to choose from with detailed info on each item. Easy to order and fast delivery.


Just the right hitch I was looking for. Perfect amount of drop I needed to level out my 33" Travel Trailer on 2016 Ram 2500HD.
