The Sloan Ranger,
Ok, a slight bend back. The reason I asked is because......; Reese #26002 HP DC and Reese HP DC #26102 have two different designed chain hanger brackets. If you would have had the HP DC #26002 with the flat hanger brackets then yours would be attached in the wrong direction (based on your pic). If you have the HP DC #26102 with the slight bend in the hanger bracket then yours are attached correctly. Please note the direction of the U-bolt threads:
Reese HP DC #26002:
Reese HP DC #26102:
It's important to have these mounted correctly to avoid damaging the snap-up brackets.
Just in case:

Addressing your question if the WD is adjusted correctly. Unhitch your TT from your TV. Make note of the front/rear fender dimensions (ground to fender). Hitch your TT back up to your TV keeping the same 7-chain links under tension as shown in your pics, and take the same fender measurements again. How do they compare?
The objective is to return your front fender height back to its "unhitched" with the TV/TT "hitched" up.
1) Your have the round bar style spring bars, ideally you want these bars to be parallel with your TT frame when engage (a "slight" angle up/down is ok).
2) By varying the ball mount tilt in conjunction with the amount of chain links under tension you can control the amount of weight being transferred to the front of your TV and TT axles.
3) If your TV front fender measurement is higher under "hitched" conditions then "unhitched", then you need to transfer more weight back to the front of the TV via added ball mount tilt and/or amount of chain links under tension. Keep in mind the objective is to ideally maintain a parallel relationship between the spring bars and the TT frame.

Hope this gives you little insight.
