This link is to a good thread on setting up a weight distribution hitch system. Keep in mind that the amount of stuff in the back of your truck- especially a lighter truck like the Frontier, will effect rear end height and, thus, ball height. Loaded up for a trip in my 2010 Titan, I can drop an inch before even hooking up a trailer. In other words, my ball height set-up with an empty truck can be different than loaded. THAT said- my hitch instructions say I should set it 1 1/2 to 2 inches higher than the the level trailer before hooking it up to account for settling. You are likely in the ball park- but if it comes down to being too high or too low with front of the trailer error on the side of lower in the front if you must "error".
