Did you guess that you didn't need the airbags or didn't need the WDH?
I agree that you probably don't need airbags. They're cosmetic only and don't help with a properly adjusted WDH.
If your trailer weighs more than 5,000lbs, then you do need a WDH (at least the manufacturer of any tow vehicle I have ever owned specified that).
I have an Equal-i-zer, so I am not sure of the number-of-links thing, but I thought that you needed to have more than 3. Don't they have a minimum number of 5 links required? I'm not sure your WDH is setup correctly for your vehicle.
