Swaybar with 20" spare tire?

I'm thinking of adding a rear swaybar but I was concerned about the fitment with the 20" spare. It's an '08 Ram 1500, I assume it's the same as the '07?
Does anyone have experience with leaving the spare in place? Does it rub or interfere?

Thanks!

Jon,

I have a 2006 with a 20 inch spare and have no clearance issues with my Hellwig sway bar. It is easier to install with the tire removed, but can be installed with the tire still in place. Its a tight fit, but nothing rubs and you can still remove the spare.

Dennis,

Thanks for the reply. I can see taking the tire out to give you room to work. I was concerned about a few other posts that mentioned throwing their spare in the bed afterwards and I didn't want to do that.
Time to give Hellwig a call

I have the Hellwig on my '05 and it allows room for the 20" spare wheel. No problems lowering or raising...good luck.

Jon,

If you are going to order the sway bar be sure to call Hellwig at (800)367-5480 and ask for Nancy. Mention to her you are a member of the Hemi Truck Club to get a discounted price. She is great to work with and the price can't be beat.
