If the weight distribution system you are using has round spring bars then yes, the Pro Series Weight Distribution Shank part # RP63971 will work for you as it offers up to 6-1/2" of drop with round spring bars. However, if the weight distribution system you are using has trunnion (squarish) spring bars then you will want to use the Reese Weight Distribution Shank part # RP3215 instead which offers up to 5-3/4" drop with trunnion spring bars.

The round spring bar weight distribution systems will sit closer to the ground than the trunnion spring bar weight distribution systems which is why the shanks have different rises/drops depending on if you have round or trunnion spring bars. The weight distribution shanks are also very universal so you shouldn't have to worry what brand you have. For example, if you have a Pro Series Weight Distribution System you can still use the Reese Weight Distribution Shank without any issues.
