I called Equalizer and talked to Dave. He said don't lube the L brackets. It says you can in the manual but they don't recommend it. If the noise bothers you the best option would be ear muffs or another brand of hitch. Personally I don't mind the noise which happens at low speed mainly because the hitch works better than any others I've had. I usually have a higher pitched whine coming from my passenger seat area. If I can solve that first I will have more peace and quiet.

That's what I love about life. You have options. They person I spoke to at equalizer said go for it...Dave says no. These were both tech support people answering the phone. The manual says OK...or buy there jackets for the brackets.

OR you can run them dry. Best part of all this is the grease can be wiped off or it will be gone in a days towing anyway. No crime no foul. YMMV but try it either way. WHATEVER you do, pick the way that feels right to you and your setup and go camping

I use normal hitch ball grease on my equalizer hitch head.. as for the L brackets, I just give them a shot of PB blaster when hooking up.. keeps it quite.
