This greatly reduces the chances of breaking welds and doing other long term damage to your equipment as well as the valuable cargo you have inside the truck and trailer.

How much air pressure does the air equalizer need?  You add air until the airbag is about 1/8″ off of the truck side, 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.

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.

    You can use the adaptor and get the 2" receiver hitch option. However, if you have a 2-1/2" hitch, the 2-1/2" receiver hitch option will fit better. Your sleeve may create added noise and vibrations.
