03 squats bigtime when towing
 
hey folks, newbie here and have a little issue with my 03 ram slt q/c 4x4. I just purchased a 22 foot toyhauler and wd hitch. i think the tongue weight on the trailer is around 1000 lbs. I hooked the wd hitch up as instructions stated and the rear of truck is almost touching the tires. it has towed alot of trailers and has had sleds and quads etc in rear alot since new. I ordered a set of timbrens to try as i think it is just a week suspension that is weeker from years of use. Any thoughts on this?

Sounds like your WD hitch isn`t set up correctly.

I agree that the WD hitch is not set up right. My 21 ft has a tongue weight of 400lbs. I use a 1000 lb bars which is over kill. the rear of my truck drops less than an inch. I would say your hitch in the shank needs raised.

Also, I added a set of firestone air bags to mine, but never had to add more than 22 lbs of air to level any load. Truck rides better also at interstate speeds!
