I clean the ball and hitch socket with WD-40, and re-grease, almost every time I hitch up.

Apples and Oranges?

I wonder if there is some confusion in the above posts and sway bars (friction type) and weight distribution bars are being confused? The sway bars I think of are not a part of the hitch. Also, some WD hitches such as the Reese Dual Cam do control sway. In other WD hitches the bars do not play as much a role in sway control.

I am with Lunatic and my wife will support that opinion or is it Lumatic but I agree. Most of the older Draw-Tite hitches did not use the bars for sway control, only weight distribution. I went to their site and they do show a friction bar that can be attached for simple sway control but not the bars, unless it is their Premier model similar to the Reese dual cam. Check out the webpage:
