2) Is this set up also anti-sway?
The pictures are very helpful, Thanks
1) By etc., etc. you mean that you measure the wheel wells before the trailer is hitched and then re-measure after you've hitched and cinched the weight distribution... then yes. The procedure is the same. When you cinch the weight distribution the goal is to transfer a portion (most?) of the tongue weight back to the vehicle axles - particularly to the front wheels. I'm sure somebody will add to that if I've oversimplified.
2) If your bars have the "cam" mechanism then yes, it's anti-sway. The cams have to be adjusted properly so they are fully mated when the tow vehicle and trailer are straight. The cam mechanism relies on friction to resist sway. I like this method of sway control compared to a friction bar that some rely on.
