I'm not quite sure what you mean by hitch bar; are you asking about the shank for your Pro Series weight distribution hitch and how high it should be? If you could specify I may be able to help you out.

Question:

Thanks for your reply. I should have said drop bar. Here is a photo of what I have. It is set too low at present and it extends below and rearward more than necessary as well. It is one heavy chunk of iron.

It looks like you need a new shank and though you measured 22 inches to the top of your hitch you only need to measure to the bottom of your coupler; you did say the top of the coupler was 19 inches so it seems likely you'll need a drop in the 5 inch range to be level. The Pro Series Weight Distribution Shank # RP63971 will give you 4-3/4" of drop and the shank bar height from top of shank to bottom is 10-7/8".

I've added a link to a video review of this product as well as a link to our selection of shanks to take a look at.
