You need to put 10-15% of your total trailer weight on the tongue for good stability, and sometimes that's far too much tongue weight for the tow vehicle. It overstresses the rear springs, reduces weight on the front tires and compromises steering, and generally makes your whole rig hard to control. A properly set-up Weight Distributing hitch will transfer weight from the rear axle to the front, leveling the truck. That means you have full weight on the front tires for steering, a rear ride height that keeps you off the bump stops and keeps the headlight aimed properly. If your rig still has sway issues, even with properly adjusted tongue weight, then you can add a sway control device, either mechanical, friction or hydraulic to work in concert with your WD hitch to really tame that sway. Don't tire yourself out fighting a poorly-set-up, ill-handling rig. Don't take chances with a rig that won't go straight, doesn't respond to the steering wheel properly and has poor braking performance, all because the weight is all on the wrong end of the truck.38.04 481.28
