Icon5 Adding rear sway bar after axle flip??

Ok, so I am going to install a rear sway bar kit...Addco #480 since I found it for $160ish. My question is this...I have done an axle flip (4" on my 7.5" axle) and then installed 1" Belltech F-150 drop shackles to equate to a 3" drop in the rear. Will the Addco kit fit the rear after doing the axle flip? Will the end links mount properly since the leaves are below the axle?

I would think you flipped it(5") and used a 2" chevy drop shakles to make 3" drop just like DJM does...



Anyway...yea...just get a junkyard unit for dirt cheap. and it'll work. Casper98's flipped rear is running a B2 bar.

The wrecking yards around here (very few) are not populated with BII's...I have looked.
