The company that makes the hitch sells the Teflon pads as well as lube AND state that it can be used. That's the way it is.

I've never had a bit of sway so if the performance is degraded it is so insignificant that it isn't worth mentioning. Anyway I don't mind the noise & love the hitch! Too each there own!

They have to Pacify the Customers who "Complain" about the Noise buy saying lube and making the pads! But the diclaimer also says "Reduction if used"! Now Reese Dual Cam is a Step above since their Bars have a "Detent Cam" that Must be overcome as well as the "Friction on the Cam and Bars"! Youroo!! Let me see if something is "Rubbing/sticking/making noise,and I Lube it it Moves easier and Makes Less Noise!

Glad you like the Reese! It's a great hitch! So is my lubed Equalizer, which by the way does make noise but I'm OK with it! Let's just move on!

This horse is dead.

Blue Ox is quiet. Just sayin. I enjoyed using the Blue Ox it has some good features and a crappy wrench. but hey a cheap breaker bar works wonders. I had the Blue Ox before I found the Hensley Arrow really cheap.

Installed the pads yesterday. Was able to try them out taking the rig to the dealer for some warranty work. Would say it cut down on the noise about 75%.

Equalizer is a very quite hitch compared to the reese dual cams (old style) the noise is the best thing I miss about that hitch. After having the equalizer I don`t think I`d go back to the reese hitch.
