Noises

Does anyone have a solution to eliminate the noises that come from the weight distribution hookups on a bumper pull?

Are you talking about the noise when turning?

Some noises are common. After buying my truck the service tech suggested to drop another link when hooking up. It felt different towing plus I was encountering a loud noise that took 5 years off my life during tighter turns. I did change back to the original setup and am happy with the current sounds.

For a while I did flip-flop back and forth to determine the difference between the two setups. The original setting is the right choice for my setup.

I have no idea what brand of system it is. It has two L bars with chains. I have tried different links but the noises are the same when turning. I am trying to avoid using grease since I live on gravel.

Sounds like my system but my knowledge is limited in this area other than for my setup. Are you able to post a couple of pictures of it hooked up? Often the more experienced members are able to tell a lot from what they see.

I used to avoid using grease/lubricate until I noticed on the equipment that stated to use it.

Are you talking about the loud clanks, or clunks that happen now and then when turning slow (like backing)?

WDH on a bumper pull? Never heard of it. How do you attach the WD head?
I though you needed an under-bumper hitch receiver to use a WDH?
