If it's angle back too far, your bars will point downward requiring more links in order to shift the weight. The problem here is, any flexing at the ball (dip in the road, etc.) will result in too much torque and could bend bars or break something.
With the Blue ox you cannot adjust ball angle. The bars used are spring steel so they are always bent when setup properly no chance of bending them out of shape. I guess you COULD break something.

They don't make the adjustable head any more. You are right there is a chance it's adjustable.

I loaded up the TT and started adjusting the hitch. I started by leveling the TT and measuring the hight. I set the hitch hight to the same measurements. Coupled the TT the TV. After a few different adjustments It drops 1/4 in the front and 1 3/4 in the back so no change. I got rained out before I could drive it around so I'll give it a test pull and see how it does. It always pulled it good before the front suspension modification so I don't expect much change.
I appreciate all the post it helped. Thanks.

Pulled it just over 300 miles pulled fine. I guess the 1 3/4 drop isn't going to affect it much. Again thanks for all the post. I learned a lot. I'll be adding air bags soon. But until then I'm on a month long trip. I'll deal with the other stuff when I get home.
