Although I donít have a Tuscon, I do have a Hyundai Santa Fe with a similar problem Ė tow ball too low when laden.  Altering tow type approved towbars is a no-no and therefore you have to look at other means of solving problem. 

I have recently fitted mad suspension spring assisters - these are steel coil spring assisters and are designed to reduce deflection of suspension when car is loaded.  Although I havenít towed with the car since fitting, it has raised the towball height by about 35mm with car unladen.  Judging by standing on towball, suspension deflection is less than previously, so Iím confident that it will be a big improvement.  Fitting the springs was easy.  You may wish to look at this website Ė they do list springs for a Tuscon. www.mad-suspension.co.uk

I had roughly the same result after fitting mad suspension to my Kia magentis,like you have not towed since fitting, was going away this weekend but because of the snow chickened out,but I am confident they will really improve things
