Skyjacker Sway Bar End Link Question

So I've got 6" of suspension lift in front, so I figure I ought to get some longer sway bar end links. Naturally, I went with Skyjacker (Part # SBE734-L).

I got them today, no worries.... but I put it side by side with the stockers, and its only about an inch or two longer? I was expecting some serious difference in length.

I went on the SJ site to doublecheck, and I did get the right part, they describe it as follows:

Quote:
Part Number SBE734
Description
Sway Bar Extended End Links; Front; Lift Height 5 in. - 6 in.;
Is there something I am missing here? When going from a stock height to 6" taller, why are the end links only 1-2 inches longer???

Thanks in advance.

You always respond to my questions - thanks for that.

After lifting from 4" to 6", I noticed a clunking noise when I flex, and I figured the swaybar may very well be bottoming out ... and the end links are not expensive ($40 bucks or so). But yea, I definitely expected them to be much longer!

notta problem.....someone has to answer it....

the clunking noise is more than likely the coil springs moving in the seats and getting settled in.....

the end links will only limit your flex if you don't add the longer ones in....i have noticed better control with the stock setup over both the added links and the drop sway bar bracket......
