Product Details

This CURT replacement weight distribution shank is compatible with all CURT weight distribution hitches. It can be used to replace a damaged shank or to give your WD hitch greater flexibility in vertical adjustment. It features a standard 2″ shank, multiple mounting options and a high-strength construction that is fully tested for tough jobs and harsh conditions. The 2″ horizontal shank is designed to fit any 2″ x 2″ trailer hitch receiver. This makes it the perfect choice for most CURT class 3 hitches, class 4 hitches or Xtra Duty class 5 hitches. The shank features rounded edges for easier insertion into the receiver tube, and it has a 5/8″ diameter hole to accept a hitch pin or hitch lock for secure mounting in the receiver. This particular weight distribution shank is 7-1/2″ high by 8″ long overall. Each hole in the vertical shank has a 3/4″ diameter, and they are spaced 1-1/4″ apart for a wide range of incremental adjustment of the WD head. With an overall height of 7-1/2″, this WD shank provides a maximum rise of 7-1/8″. The entire shank can also be flipped in the receiver tube to provide a maximum drop of 3-1/8″.
