Can you use a 2 5/16 ball with the factory hitch? Thanks
It will depend on the size of the ball's shank (diameter). The Subaru ball hitch is designed for a one inch shank, so as long as the 2 5/16 ball's shank isn't too large to fit in the hole, it should work, however, I am under the impression that 2 5/16" balls had a 1 1/4" diameter shank - if true, than no, it won't work with the Subaru supplied ball hitch.

They come in different sizes. I got one from Amazon that fit. Amazon search hasn't been cooperative and I can't find which.
