Transferring Equalizer from '16 F250 to '17 F-250

We have the 26U and are moving to the 2017 F-350 TV. The new hitch is 3-4" taller than the 2016. What hitch adjustments are likely with this swap over?

Thanks in advance...

You will have to lower the hitch head by that amount or potentially more if the suspension of the new truck is stiffer. If your shank does not have enough adjustment (about 2-3 holes) you will have to buy a longer drop shank.
