Is there another way, I'd rather not have to leave the drop down hitch installed all the time?
I think shimming is a good plan as well. I could feel my CRV wandering around in back of the gasser I had. I had enough room to insert a piece of perforated metal angle? The stuff you might use while hanging a garage door track. It's not real thick and maybe 1 1/2" on a side. I cut a piece about 10" long and inserted it with the adapter, marked where the pin went through, took it all apart and notched the angle so it couldn't go anywhere. No more slop...

I am using a 4" drop. Gives me a near perfect straight alignment between rig and toad.
