I think I have 3 washers in the head.
The L brackets height depends your specific truck and trailer. You want them set to where the bars sit level on them at ride height. For me, that was between two holes on the brackets so I tried both and settled on the lower setting. Easier to put the bars on.
Oh check those square Bolts on them periodically, I found them loose one morning while hitching up. I guess that's why the pry bar has a wrench that fits them on it.

We love our Centerline WDH. Had for 3 seasons now(about 2K miles) works great! Adjustment and grease is the key. I'm a firm believer in metal to metal contact points should be greased. Especially where the spring bars meet the "L" brackets on the trailer. It stays quiet, no popping or creaking when slow speed turns.

Doesn't that reduce the anti-sway function?

Our unit looks like this

Any where there is movement I put grease. It doesn't effect anti-sway control what so ever. The heavy duty spring pushing against the trunnions keeps it center. The bars actually slide and shift on the "L" brackets (they're supposed to) that makes the popping/creaking noise in most cases. Applying grease to the contact points reduces wear and tear on the unit again without effecting function.

I use a synthetic brake caliper grease. It's a high temperature very thick grease. I cut a rectangular opening in the top just enough for a 2" cheap paint brush and keep it on the trailer. Before I hook up I apply the grease.

I was thinking that but I haven't had time to to look it up.
Two different models.
Centerline and Centerline TS.

Be careful what you read on the Internet. Some comments on towing capacity i keep reading here just aren't correct. Folks should use their own vehicle manufacturer towing specifications by model/year/option and own rv weights to calculate.
