equalizer adjustments

Got a new TV....broke down and bought an Ecoboost F150. Question, when adjusting, how do you know how many spacer washers you need? Going from a Titan SWB of 140" to F150 with 157" wheelbase. Do you think that I will need to add a washer or two?



Actually, I took measurements as described in the manual. Here are the measeurements from ground to fender well.....

Unloaded

39 3/34 inches rear 37 1/2 inches front

Hooked up without weight distribution

37 1/4 rear 38 1/4 front



with current weight distribution


37 5/8 front 37 5/8 rear exactly the same


looks level without any sagging at all....looks like the setting may work with the change from the Titan to the F150


what do you think???? opinions appreceiated

It looks like the W/D is set properly...wouldn't have expected it to change as the hitch weight should have remained the same. I'm more surprised that you didn't have to change the hitch height with the change in TV's. My impression is that the F150's ride height would be higher.

Actually, I thought the Titan was going to be higher....But it was not. Thanks for your input
