In order to choose the correct ball mount, there are a couple measurements you'll need to take. First, make sure both your Chevy and trailer are parked on level ground; you'll then want to measure from the ground to the top of your hitch receiver. Next, measure from the ground to the bottom of your coupler.

If the height of your hitch is greater, you will need a ball mount with that amount of drop. If the height of the coupler is greater, you'll need a ball mount with that amount of rise. For example, if the top of the hitch on your truck measured 12 inches and the bottom of your coupler measured 10 inches, you would need a ball mount with 2 inches of drop, such as the # AMSC2. I've attached a link to a help article on ball mounts for you to take a look at, as well as a link to our selection of ball mounts.
