For your weight distribution shank I recommend the Reese Weight Dist Shank - Drop Only - 11" Long # RP3344. This shank will give you a 7-5/8" drop using a trunnion-bar system or a 8-5/8" drop using a round bar system.

If you have a round bar system, you can get a deeper drop of up to 10 inches with the Curt # C17124.

These are the deepest drop shanks we carry based on the bar style of your system. If you need a deeper drop then you will need to use the Gen-Y stackable ball mount to give you more drop with your current weight distribution system shank. You can use the 10 inch drop # 325-GH-515 or the 12-1/2 inch drop # 325-GH-516.
