Finally had a chance to tinker. Tonight, I dropped the torson bar brackets one notch as originally suggested. I will hook up tonight and see how things look/pull. Ive watched the equalizer install video multiple times and read the instructions in the manual. It talks about the spacers for the angle of the hitch head. It mentions 5 spacers being a good starting point, and nothing more is ever mentioned. How does one know if they need to add or remove spacers?


Edit* I found a video on the washers. Got that figured out now. I will report back on the changes with the L brackets.

I'm not home....So I'm doing this by memory.

The idea of the washers is to get the trailer ball level while unloaded.

Have a great time, you deserve a good relaxing weekend.  Looks level to me in that picture, I bet it pulled great. Really nice set-up.   :))

I dropped the WD bars one notch and she pulls really nice. The truck has a trailer sway setting, and I had to turn it off. It feels very strange. Feels much smoother with the setting shut down.
