I don't think it is compatible with a weight distributing hitch since they use pressure between the ball and bars

It's not. From the Q&A on etrailer's page:


The Curt RockerBall Shock Absorbing 2" Hitch Ball part # C40047 will not work with a weight distribution system because the flange that gets wedged between the platform and base that stops the unit from rotating will not fit over the shank on a weight distribution system. Therefore, the Curt RockerBall must be used with a standard ball mount like the Curt Ball Mount for 2" Hitches part # C45067.

If you are looking to add a shock absorbing feature to your weight distribution system you'll want to swap out your shank with the Gen-Y Shock Absorbing Weight Distribution Shank part # 325-GH-12006.
