Equalizer height adjustment

Towing my 2014 25FB with an F 150. Buying a F 250. Will the height of my Equalizer need to be lowered due to the difference in receiver height?

I had a Ram 1500 and bought a Ford 250. I had to buy a different shank to get the right height. I tried every way to make it work with the drop shank, it wouldn't work for me.

Most Fords I've had have the same receiver height. But, the suspension on the new F250 will be heavier and might require an adjustment on your part. I went from an F250 to an F350 and no change.

I needed to get a different shank when I went from a Chevy 1500 to a 2500. The receiver height was higher on the new truck and the suspension was stiffer. I found my best deal on a new shank at Summit Racing. If you have hole positions lower on your existing shank, you may be fine, but start off by measuring the height difference between the 150 and the 250 and see if there is much difference. If not, you may just need to play around with the head pitch based on the suspension stiffness.
