Default New Differential cover question

Hi Guys, Back agin with another question has anyone changed and installed a new Rear Differential Cover like a PML or Mag-hytec diff cover on there 2010 Dodge Ram 1500 4x2 because there does not look like to be enough room between the cover and the sway bar with the factory cover and to install a larger cover looks like it would make contact with the bars or is the look just deceiving any help would be great.

2009 & '10 are the same differential

I have the mag-hytec
it reads on the instructions, if the bar is in the way, use spacers when re-mounting the sway bar

By the way, you will really like a cover that doesn't have to come off to check for metal filings, they have a drain plug that is magnetic

Hi, So by using spacers when re-mounting the sway bar will that affect anything with the suspension and does mag-hytec include these parts or is this something you have to get at a Hard Ware store or Auto Part store.

I installed a Mag-Hytech on my 2010 1500 4x4 and it cleared without the use of spacers on the sway bar.

Last week i went to get my Ram serviced
My Dodge dealer opened up a Express Lube section, it is well away from where the repair section is, at least 8 bays, all with hoists
The Service Writer in charge of that section came outside & asked me how to check the rear end, because i had the Mag-Hytech cover, i was telling her about the cover & before i got to the Dipstick part, another tech came out, he had just finished up another vehicle, & said that he knew about the cover & would check it himself.
There are a few new Lube Techs in there, but others do know what they are doing

Lube jobs are arriving & leaving much faster & they had to hire some new employees
good for the customer & the new hires

I've had mine on for about 2 years and no spacers needed. There is about .25" between the panhard and the mag hytec cover.
