Trailer Hitch Ball Mount same for lowered vehicles?

Given that my X5 is lowered with the H&R springs (front sport springs and shortened level sensor linkage for rear air suspension lowering), can I still use the same factory trailer Hitch Ball Mount or does the spec change and have to get a different one? Does the towing dynamics change such that one has to change the ball mount hardware?

The ball drop or rise is specific to the trailer you are pulling.
