I think you would find both transfer exactly the same. For any given roll and CG position you know the weight transfer inside to outside. Asuming steady state.

Bottom line is the only way to keep a car from rolling is to transfer enough weight to offset the location of the CG. How you transfer it, springs, bars, magnets, air bags, ... doesn't really matter.
