Equalizer hitch on 2014/2015 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali or SLT
I'm trying to dial in my equalizer setup and I intend to get it all weighed properly. However, before I bring it in for weighing, I'd like to hear from anyone who has the same model year 2014 or 2015 GMC Sierra or Chevy Silverado. I'm curious how you are currently configured. (#washers, hitch height, sway bar bracket height... And the measurements pre and post weight distribution)
I have a feeling that I'm not setup as ideally as I could be. The gmc is a little odd in that rear end sits up well above the front. I'm not even sure what changes will affect weight distribution. I guess I'd like to see how others are setup and compare.
So my rig when hooked up is not perfectly level. The TT about an 3/4 to an inch nose down. It "looks" level but isn't actually.
The front end with weight distribution restores to original height. The rear end drops about 1 3/4 inches with weight distribution but it still sits a little higher than the front end. So visually, it all sorta looks ok but I feel like it porpoises a bit while driving.
I've weighed my truck loaded for camping, full of gas, and people but with no camper. I will be going back with the full rig hopefully on Friday.
My weights without the rig and loaded up
Steer axle 3550 (gawr 3950)
Drive axle 2700 (gawr 3950)
My tongue will probably about 1100 on the 27EB with 2nd AC. So obviously I don't want too much more on the steer axle, I'm up there in weight already.
Said a lot and not 100% sure what I'm asking. Ha
- does anyone have this same truck and hitch? If so, how are you configured.
- what changes to the setup will change the weight distribution. For example, if I wanted to make the rig level, what would I change. If I wanted to shift more weight to the front axles, what would I change?
Sorry for the ramble.
