Integral vs Separate Rear Shock Bracket

I'm planning to order a Hellwig rear sway bar for my 2004 Dolphin on a W-22 Workhorse chassis. Hellwig specifies two part numbers, based on the type of the lower shock mount, either "Integral Shock Bracket with Lower U-Bolt Clamp" or "Separate Rear Axle Shock Casting". I've climbed under my MH and can't really tell from this description which one applies to me. Roadmaster has some photos as part of their instructions which lead me to believe that mine might be the "integrated" type, but their photos aren't too clear so I can't be sure. Does anyone have photos of the two types or some other way to identify which I might have?

Mine is definitely a 2004 chassis, as there are date codes on various parts that show March/April 2004 production dates.

Thanks in advance!

Never got a response but heard from Hellwig on the issue. Thought I'd post my findings in case it might help someone else.

If your rear shock brackets look like my photos you have the integrated brackets and need the #7237 sway bar (or TH7237 for Blue Ox). The other style uses #7219. I don't have photos of that bracket.
