much of the info related to combos LIKE yours is here...
the ~600 lb tongue is more like 800 lbs at the drive axle...
and just GUESSING this unloads the front (steering) axle by 2-300 lbs...
which DOES affect steering control, safety and driver comfort.
one of the primary goals with w/d gear is to RESTORE the steering axle to normal loading.
so using w/d AND sway control would be useful in calm towing...
and may be REALLY helpful when stuff happens (like a blow out).
it would be useful NOW to get axle weights for the truck UNhitched and hitched and report those figures here...
this process is also useful to properly adjust whichever w/d sway control hitch u decide to try.
