Do you mean a top-of-receiver-opening height of 22"? The ball height is whatever you make it with your choice and adjustment of ball moint.

The top of my Yukon SUV 2" x 2" receiver is 24" from the level ground. I needed a 5" drop to be level with the 19" hitch tongue. Therefore, I ordered a 8" adjustable shank to level the trailer and TV. Thanks.

Thanks. You are correct about the squat, but ETI installed it with hitch ball at the right height.

So, the top of the receiver, not the ball. Thanks for the clarification
