Always use the properly rated hitch ball for your towing system.
Your towing system's maximum weight rating will always be no better than the single lowest-rated item in the system. Your hitching system cannot be upgraded to a rating higher than the maximum rating of your hitch. For example, a 3,500 lbs.-rated ball on a 2,000 lbs. max trailer weight-rated hitch does not increase your towing capacity to 3,500 lbs. Your hitching system is still rated at 2,000 lbs. Conversely, a 2,000 lbs.-rated ball on a 3,500 lbs. max trailer weight-rated hitch decreases your maximum towing capacity to only 2,000 lbs.
The hitch ball diameter must be the same diameter as the trailer coupler (1-7/8", 2", or 2-5/16").
The shank diameter of the hitch ball should be the same as the hole diameter in the (correct) ball mount you selected. The shank length should be long enough to allow at least two threads to protrude past the tightened nut. That means a 3 3/8" shank if you're attaching to a solid 2" bar ball mount, or at least 1-1/2" to a 3/8" plate ball mount.
