On my 250 that is lifted i had to purchase an extended drop shank. Even on the lowest holes the trailer was nose high. Mine also has bags, so it rides level no matter what..I was running the husky setup with 1200lb bars..

How much was the rear of your truck lifted? I ask, because some lifts provide 6" up front but 4" I'm the rear.

The setup looks good from a distance, but the best way to tell is to hit up some scales.

Ya know I'd have to measure again....I think it was closer to 4 in the rear because I ended up level front to back....this was on a 250 tho which has a slightly shorter block than a 350 to begin with...so the end lift totals would be different

What hitch are you using? Can you take a picture of your hitch setup?
