Part No. 17120 Warranty Details  
Quantity  Add to Cart
At CURT, we think your towing equipment should never be the limiting factor. If your trailer has the tonnage and your truck has the muscle, then nothing should stand in the way of you hitching up and heading out. Made with high-strength steel and a solid design, this CURT WD replacement shank is made for heavy-duty towing. It features a 2" x 2" shank to fit any equivalent size receiver tube opening, and it offers the strength necessary for towing large RVs and travel trailers. While the receiver tube shank measures 2" x 2", the vertical shank offers a universal fit to be compatible with most CURT weight distribution hitches. Holes in the vertical shank are spaced 1 1/4" center-to-center and have a 3/4" diameter, allowing for a maximum rise of 7 3/4" and a maximum drop of 9 3/4". To make sure this weight distribution hitch accessory has the grit to stand up to whatever the road throws at you, it comes finished in a durable black powder coat finish.

Product Features:
  • Provides an adjustable mount for most weight distribution hitches
  • Features multiple holes for adjustable head height
  • Can be flipped to provide necessary drop or rise
  • 3/4" diameter holes are spaced 1 1/4" from center to center
  • Fits 2" x 2" receiver tube openings
  • Constructed from solid steel for reliable strength
  • Protected by a durable powder coat finish

    Comments about Curt Weight Distribution Shank:

    Worked great to give me the drop I needed for my Reese Trunnion Type Hitch Head at less expense than I was able to find anywhere else.
