FAQ

Will it work on my equalizer, weight-distribution or load leveling hitch?  Yes on most brands. Your weight-distribution head bolts to our air equalizer. Measure the head bolt pattern (not the shank).

Fits & bolts to most major brands of weight-distribution hitch heads: Fastway E2, Equalizer, Reese, Husky, Pro Series, Torklift, Blue OX, Camco Eaz Lift & Curt round bar (doesn’t fit curt trutrack or trunnion head)

How easy it is to install?  Plan about 5-10 minutes. Check out the install video

How much air pressure does the air equalizer need?  You add air until the airbag is about 1/8″ off of the forward bump cushions. Here is a quick video showing how to set air pressure on air equalizer.

Do I have to adjust or reset my current weight-distribution bars or my sway control arm(s)? Generally no. When you attach your existing weight distribution head to the air equalizer, Set it up at the same height on your pickup as you had the hard connection shank. The air equalizer has 2 pin holes in the shank, use the pin hole that is closest to your previous length on your solid connection shank. If this is done, you should be a the same height and length of your previous connection and not have to adjust the length of your weight-distribution or sway control bars.

Does Shocker Hitch sell weight-distribution or sway control bars?  No, this air equalizer is made for existing weight distribution hitches on the market. Here is a list of the w-d hitches it works with.

  1. Jason H.

    Pulled my 12,000+ pound racecar trailer with this hitch on my 1 ton Ram truck on a 1544 mile trip,round trip from Kansas City MO to Belle Rose LA and back to KCMO.
    The Last 37 miles of the trip from Baton Rouge to the track in Belle Rose was like driving on rail road tracks the roads were so rough.
    Everything stayed in place inside of my trailer and for once all the screws actually stayed in the walls and ceiling and were TIGHT when I checked them. So this hitch definitely does what it’s designed to do. It seems to absorb the road vibrations well, and made it a heck of a lot more smoother ride while towing!
    Thanks To the guys at shocker hitch for a awesome product!
