got free sway bar: will it work?

I got a sway bar for free today set up with longer endlinks. I know the guy and he just decided to take it off and said I could have it since he isn't gonna use it. My concern is that it may not fit on mine with a 3" lift. The guys cherokee it came off of I think has a 4 inch lift. The endlinks measure out to be 9 inches long and with the top bracket you see is another extra inch. So will it work?

It looks like the endlink on the right is slightly bent

The lengths will be slightly different. You could try to take it off and straighten it.

Or, you can probably find a replacement link on Q-tec.

Oh I know that. I'm not complaining or anything. Still it's cheaper than buying new ones. I'll work with it.
