We have 2-1/2 inch shanks that will work with a Reese Strait-Line weight distribution system such as # RP66074 but you did not mention the length you had so I'll give you a number of options for shanks that fit 2-1/2 inch hitches and you can choose the correct one.

- Reese Titan Weight Dist Shank # RP54976 is 17-1/2" long and offers a 5-1/4" rise and 1-1/4" drop and has a weight rating of up to 1,700 lbs of tongue weight.

- Equal-i-zer Weight Dist Shank # EQ90-02-4800 is 12" long, offers up to 8" of rise and 4" of drop and has a tongue weight capacity of between 600 lbs and 1,600 lbs.

- Curt Weight Distribution Shank # C17132 is 12-1/2" long, offers up to 12" of rise and 8" of drop and has a tongue weight capacity of up to 1,500 lbs.

I have added links to video reviews of these shanks for you to take a look at.
