Weight distribution shank

The holes in the shank I am using are 15/16 center to center.
Towing with my f-350 will require more ‘drop’. Does anyone know what brand makes this and who sells them?

- Could use the Brand of Hitch you are using, as they vary considerably.
- The year of your F350. The 2016 and 2017 had a big change for those years.

I have a 2016 F350 4x4 and an Equalizer Hitch with 1,000# bars.

With my 2014 Tundra 4x4, the Equalizer shank was fine set up the 'usual' way.

For the F350, I flipped the shank and am down flush for my Ford. I have two holes above the assembly that the ball is attached. I am using a 2 1/2" shank to fit the larger F250/350. I have a Leer shell, which may drop the back, also.

There are at least one Equalizer Hitch Thread. Equalizer has a very good video how to set up your hitch.

I have an F250 and am trying to setup my Equalizer hitch. Can on of you come over today and take care of this for me? I'm busy at 6pm so please hurry up.

I'll throw you a bone here. Did you mean 1 and 5/16ths? or 15/16ths? I believe 1 and 5/16 is pretty standard. Equalizer and Curtis will fit that measurement.

Mine are 1.25".

If you bring you hitch to Las Vegas, we can compare and figure out why yours may be different by 1/16"?

Who is Curtis?

Looked like 1 5/16 to me, but who's going to argue over 1/16 of an inch. I would come right over, but as I said, I'm busy at 6PM. Don't think I can make it there and back from Fort Worth....especially holding 65MPH due to my GMT tires!

I thought Curtis was the guy who created Curt hitch supplies? Okay...time for a drink.

Curtis is 1 1/4 center to center.
The one I have is 15/16 center to center. Needless to say, not much space between holes. The bolts are 4 1/2 center to center.
