That is the roadmaster sway bar. Not sure since I've never owned a mag hytec cover. But I can take a mesurement if you want me to. I had the helwig and now the roadmaster. The roadmaster is beefier but more money. The helwig didn't have a model out at the time I purchased the roadmaster.

that would be great if you could take a measurement, i dont want to give up the mag-hytec. I really like the drain and easy check dipstick fill hole. this '10 just seems more soft sprung then my 03 srw 3500 did, like it wants to roll over around a corner.

I will take the measurements for you. They are much softer. My 04.5 was much better handling the same weight trailer then the 2010 is. This truck was rear end whipping pretty hard at times on sudden uneven roads such as bridges and bad road joints. The airbag with about 8 pounds of air cured that, but jeez. I'll try to do that today.

Mass Diesel gave me the best price on PacBrake airbags. I have them on an 06' 2500 and a 09' 3500. Do not buy anything from Airbagit.com! I tried their kit and it was a joke. Airbagit.com thinks their kit the best thing in the world but I don't think you'll find a single person who will agree with them.

I used the Airlift bags and basic on board air system with the 5psi air maintenance sensor. (automatically maintains the required 5psi). There is a $99.00 system that doesn't have the 5psi sensor).
