Weight Distribution

When using a Weight Distribution System, the ball weight remains the same, however the load is evenly distributed through the vehicle’s chassis to all four wheels. It is important that the capacity of the Weight Distribution System is correctly chosen and that the vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations are always followed.  ISP Glendale’s knowledgeable staff can help you find the right Weight Distribution System for you.
