I emailed Summit Racing with the same question and pics, see if they know exactly which one I need. They all look off!
There is a pretty strong spring inside that will tend to keep the two halves locked together, I believe they use a fixture/clamp tool to hold it together when dis- and re-assembling them. You might want to do a search for info on disassembling it if you haven't already- what you don't want is to be hit w/the spring or booster case as it comes apart.
