If Truck Squats One Inch is 6 Inch Drop Ball Mount Still Needed on 2019 Chevy Colorado

Question:

Good morning! I used your draw bar configure information. Vehicle 21 in trailer 15 in. If my vehicle squats an inch when hooking up do I still need a 6 in drop? Thank you!

That's an interesting question, and if you are consistently getting the same inch of squat when hooking up your trailer to your 2019 Chevy Colorado, you can take that into account and go with a ball mount with 5 inches of drop instead of 6 inches.

For that you will need an adjustable ball mount as there aren't any fixed ball mounts with a 5 inch drop. The best option for this is the B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount - 2" Hitch - 5" Drop, 5-1/2" Rise # BWTS10037B.

The other option, and what I do recommend, is adding suspension enhancement to your '19 Colorado to remove that sag. The reason for this is, when your truck squats, that means your front end raises up and your front tires have less contact with the ground. This is a problem because your truck won't handle as well, with less traction and more difficult steering. So I highly recommend going with the Timbren Suspension Enhancement System # TGMRCCA.

What the Timbrens do is take the brunt of the weight on the rear of your Chevy, cushion the load and allow the back end to remain stable and level, improving the handling and performance of your Colorado. That way you could also use a fixed ball mount with a 6 inch drop, the Curt Class III Ball Mount # C45064.
