    Tow hitch ball mount?

    I just bought a cushioned ball mount. It`s a 2" drop. comparing it to my other set-ups, it seems that the tang where the ball actually (hole) mounts in is not bent enough. If I put a straight edge on the bottom of the tang (center of ball hole) it does not run parallel to the 2" tube...

    looking at my other ball mounts the tang does run parallel, so if it`s off a few degrees will it matter???

    I mean at the tang the straight edge is 5/8 away from tube, and at the end of the tube approx 12" away it is reduced to 3/8, that`s a 1/4 in 12", sounds alot to me... any thoughts?...PR...

    Go back to the store where you bought it from and check the others, if they are straight exchange it, unless you bought it online. I have never heard of one bent up like that, but then again I never pay that much attention to it either.

    I always buy my hitch stuff at www.etrailer.com

    this has been the first funny looking piece I ever got from them...
    my van sits up much higher in the back, so maybe it will be ok, I`ll post pics tomorrow...PR...

    I say give it a try and hook up the trailer to it. Also get rid of the tennis balls and get one of these.
