I think that the ball of your truck should be at least 2.5 inches higher, to start with. It'll take a few tries before you get the right ball position. Read the hitch instructions manual, it should have a starting point for your trailer and truck hitch.

Got home, started over with the WD instructions. Ended up with the ball 2.5" higher, and using three links. The bars are parralel to the tongue. Front sits exactly where it was unloaded, and the back is down 1/2". Then I went on test drive without sway bar. The difference is night and day. I can control it with one hand now. Got up to 62 and still great. Couldn't go faster, GSP was out lol. The little tail wag back and forth I could see in my mirrors is gone. Trailer sits perfect level measuring off its frame.

Thanks for the help yall!

Did you mean the Hensley hitch?
If you have the money, the Hensley and the Propride 3p are the best bumper hitches you can buy.

You may want to check out the Andersen "No Sway" Weight Distribution Hitch. I have one on our Flagstaff 21FBRD pulled by a 2006 G2500 Express Van.
Very pleased with this hitch: easy quick hook and unhook, clean, quiet, easy to adjust distribution for different loads, and no sway.
Execellent customer service with one minor problem I had and for set-up questions.
(I have no connection with Andersen.)

Hensley is a great hitch. In the high winds when it really shines.

Never better served than by ourselves !
It's sad to see that people selling those hitches don't have a clue how to install and adjust them.
Glad to see your problem is solved...with no extra cost!
