To equalize the load on my truck now and earlier I had to go to my present setup. We have no noise from the chains during towing only the sway bars poping during turns.
Thanks for your comments
If the type of hitch you use, and a picture of your rig hooked up would help, is the type called Round Bar WDH or the original patent holder, I think was EzLift, then they are all nearly identical and all should be tongue almost perfectly level and the bars parallel to the A frame bars. For most installations that means about five links from the bar up to the hanger and usually not more than Three links hanging loose from the hook.
E Trailer sells about 20 variations of that hitch and there are instructions with about every one of them. Here is about what mine looks like on the E Trailer Site. https://www.etrailer.com/Weight-Dist...rt/C17062.html
I can tell you from experience when I started out towing a 9000 lb TH behind a too light Van with Too light tires and a too light WDH that things are far better and far less noisy when the set up is correct, even when other things are pushed to the limit.
