On the instruction sheet for my Mag-Hytec cover, it reads on some Ram setups, you will have clearance issues, it suggests that you should use washers or spacers when installing

A word of caution to the installer / vehicle owner:
The Mag-Hytec cover is designed to fit the factory Dodge axles as supplied as original equipment. However, in some applications, or
because of the use of certain factory options and/or after market equipment, there may be clearance problems between your Mag-
Hytec cover and other vehicle systems (specifically some rear sway bars). It may be necessary to install spacers or shims to lower the
sway bar. It is the responsibility of the vehicle owner/cover installer to ensure that no other vehicle component comes"in contact with
the Mag-Hytec cover. Contact with any vehicle component, or the making of any modification to the Mag-Hytec cover,
automatically voids the warranty. Mag-Hytec assumes no liability, expressed or implied, for damage or injury to persons or
property.

just a thought, go to the Home Depot or Lowes, buy a length or 2 of the foam pipe insulation that will fit around those bars, then use masking tape to secure it in place temporarily to see if that is your problem, i mentioned a second piece or insulation because i use a floor jack, i put a length of insulation over the whole jack handle, now when i am jacking up a vehicle, the metal jack handle doesn't hit the vehicles bumper, i hated that noise & it has worked for years
