How To Measure For Ball Mount Rise Or Drop On 1999 Chevrolet Silverado

I have attached a helpful article that will explains just how to measure to make sure you get the right ball mount on your Silverado.

You park your Silverado on level ground and then measure from the top of the hitch opening to the ground. Then with the trailer on level ground you measure the distance from the bottom of the trailer coupler to the ground. If the hitch height is greater than the coupler height, the difference is the drop that is required. If the coupler height is greater, the difference is the rise that is required.
