I have the Equalizer 90-00-1000, or 1k lbs tongue and 10k trailer capacity. I don't think it is set up correctly. I feel like the car sits nose higher than it should be. I had the dealership install it. I have not had a chance to sit both in a level lot and read through owner's manual.

We towed our new 16XRB hybrid with my 2012 Xterra last week on a local 4 day outing. On the way out, had the hitch set with some rear end sag in the Xterra, and, fighting 20-30 mph wind gusts, we were all over the road. I did stop a couple of times, and added more friction to the sway bar, which helped some. On the return trip, I raised my WDH hitch one more chain link than before, which helped level everything out. It was much better! Most of my issues have not been the fault of the Xterra, but, the fact it is lifted, taller tires, with factory gearing. It does struggle once it gets above 62 mph.

Do you have any upgrades to the rear suspension? Helper springs or bags? I have heard that Xterrras don't have the stiffest springs and they don't need much to have the rear sagging.

No upgrades, just the lift shackles. I am considering installing airbags to help out though. I love how it currently rides when not towing, and, don't want to change it any more than needed.
