Thanks for the input. Currently I am using 600 lb bars. I have not weighed the tongue but i suspect i am pushing their limits. The current set up has me towing the trailer with it one inch lower in the front than in the back. The front of my truck is within a half inch of its unloaded height. If I find a need to upgrade the spring bars I will probably get a hitch with integrated sway control. I am interested in an Andersen hitch.

A sway control would be good insurance.
Proper percent of trailer weight on tongue is also an important parameter.

There are some nice benefits in a WDH with integrated sway control.

Not to "sway" you away from a WDH w/integrated sway control, but if your present WDH has trunnion style spring bars some WDH brands the ball mount is designed to accept their higher rated bars.
