Just needing WD bars?

I have the shank, hitch attachment that holds the bars, and ball on tow vehicle. Then I have the "stirrups" and brackets on the trailer. I just need bars. Any idea where to get these in the correct size to fit? I really don't want to buy an entire system when I'm just lacking bars.

If it's an Equalizer they sell them separately.

https://www.equalizerhitch.com/store/replacement-parts

You can get them elsewhere for less as well.

What are you towing, and with what?

eTrailer.com sells individual bars pending what brand you need but sell most.

Keep an eye on Craigslist in your area to avoid paying for shipping. Like this one: https://fayar.craigslist.org/tro/d/e...196396483.html

I know you said you only needed the spring bars but this is pretty reasonable and practically new!

I wouldn't just put any old bars on that. Get it set up by someone that knows what they are doing. A Tahoe is kinda short on wheelbase and if it has any frame rust you want that looked at carefully before towing a 31'.

The shank and bars are both sized. You can't slap any old bars on any shank. Do you have the right shank for your trailer?

Each hitch manufacturer typically has different sized bars depending on the tongue weights. Weigh your tongue then buy the appropriate bars.

The Tahoe has a good wheelbase to overhang ratio. We towed a 26' Streamline with ours and it was very stable.

I was going to say...finding just bars can be a PIA and not worth the cost given that it's usually not a lot more money to get the whole new shooting match.

Your hitch is basically the same as my Curt set up. Works great for me at a very reasonable cost.
