What WDH/Sway Control would you recommend

I have a 2015 Dodge 2500 Diesel. I have the Lacrosse 329BHT.

Tongue Weight - 918lbs
Ship Weight - 8777lbs
Fully loaded weight - right around 10000lbs

I have a WDH and Sway control but wanted to just through out the question to the forum before getting into a namebrand debate.

What WDH and Sway Control would you recommend for this setup and why?

The main reason I ask is when I brought it home yesterday, I was getting more sway that I thought I should. I can try tightening down the sway control more, but wanted to just get raw input from the group before throwing out there what I have. Thanks for any and all help.

Suggestion here would be to get a WDH with integrated sway control, like Equal-i-zer 4pt, Reese Straight Line Dual Cam, or Blue Ox Sway Pro.......unless you got the big bucks for a Hensley or ProPride. 1200 or 1400 lb. spring bars will probably be needed.

First your sway control...if it's the friction type , you need 2 , and don't be afraid to tight the handle all you can !
It will make noise, but won't sway !
Then the WDH, I would go with 1200 pounds bars and 12000 pounds head

If you have the friction style sway control then 2 are needed on that size unit. I went with the second friction bar and had no sway afterwards. My thoughts were spend 50 dollars on second sway bar or 700+dollars on new WDH with build in sway control.

I would have to second the Andersen WDH system. It's quiet, you don't disconnect to backup. Last year was the first year using it never a sway with 29'. Hoping to have the same response with our new 35' 8329SS we are picking up this weekend. Hated the spring bars.

dang it, every time I look at this forum it cost me.... I need a second Husky Sway Control now. Even looked at Husky's web site and you guys are correct, Husky recommend using both right-hand and left-hand sway controls for trailers 24′ and longer. (i'm way over that length)

I tow a lacrosse with just about the same specs as yours with 14k Equal-i-zer 4pt and it tows good.
IMO the propride is the best wdh if ya got the $$$.

Shop around there's good prices on the web.

I have a Lacrosse 327RES which appears to be about the same size as your rif and I tow with 2012 Ford E-350 Crew cab. I uses a Equlaizer 4 point (Weight Distributing w/ Sway Control) and have towed over 6,000 miles with no issues. I liek the set up.
This truck has integrated sway control

Prior to that I towed this rig with an E350 van and i also had no sway with this hitch
