Ah well. There you go. Thanks for that information.
Hey Rohan can you explain the logic behind the tow ball height and the increased tow ball weight? I don’t understand how it affects it.All other things being equal the rear spring rate does not change the rear axle load. However stiffer springs that reduce rear sag mean all other things are not equal and will generally mean more tow ball weight as the tow ball is higher unless other adjustments are made to counter that.
At a recent weigh-in we asked this question also of our tester.can you explain the logic behind the tow ball height and the increased tow ball weight?
If you have a dual axle van as the towball drops the weight on the tow ball will also reduce somewhat as it puts more load on the van front axle creating a countering torque and reducing the ball weight. Raise the tow ball with stiffer springs and the ball weight will tend to go up. How big the effect depends on the van and its suspension design.Hey Rohan can you explain the logic behind the tow ball height and the increased tow ball weight? I don’t understand how it affects it.
Currently my rear sags a huge amount and the towball height is lower as a result. When I have my stiffer springs in, I’m hoping it will then lift the towball height to where the caravan is more level rather than nose down. In effect it should get things back to optimal tow ball height and caravan attitude. I was thinking the nose down attitude would put more weight on the towball.
