Short answer is, there is no such thing that you are trying to refer to...
Also the hitch attaches to the uni-body as MKs don't have a frame...
The term weight distribution hitch refers to the type of hitch and setup that goes into a receiver... Not sure if you mean something else but receivers bolt to a uni-body or frame depending on your application. receivers are rated as a class X hitch...
The following classifications of hitches are what I am aware of:
class 1, class 2, class 3, class 4, 5th wheel, and goose neck.
I guess you could use a weight distribution HITCH in the receiver of a MK but considering the MK is only only rated 1000# (or 2000# with tow package) I don't see the need. Weight distribution hitches are for large loads that should be being towed by a full size truck or suv IMO.
So in short weight distribution is a type of hitch, that goes in a receiver, not a system that bolts to a vehicle.
