sway bar

In mounting my Husky sway bar on a 2016 J-flight SLX I centered the ball plate on the trailer frame leaving 1.25" above plate and 1.25" below. When I hook sway bar up it drops about 1.75" to the hitch. There are now 6- 3/8 holes holding plate on. How bad did I mess this up. And can I move the plate down 1.25". Help

Usually the 1 1/4 ball has a long shank, you can put washers underneath to lessen the height difference. But it is not really a big deal. What TT model number and what length?

I don't think you have anything to worry about. However, it is bothers you take the frame mounted bracket to a welding shop and have them remove the ball and re-weld it higher (or lower) on the bracket. That way the ball gets repositioned without drilling any additional holes in the frame. They could even fabricate a new mounting plate if necessary.
