new sway bar links?

I recently put in a 2.25 BB with bilstein 5100's. the front sway bar link were really tight when i was reattaching them. I had to put the bolt in the bottom and hook up a C clamp so that the link could reach hook up to the bolt. I don't know if that makes sense, all in all I feel like the sway bar links are being stressed.

My question is, should i get new sway bar links? I did some googling and found some 3" performance sway bar links. would those be suitable? What are some sites that you would recommend? I also live in Canada.

Get jks discos from somebody like kolak or kevin, they make them in different sizes for different lift and make disconnecting for trails a hell of a lot easier.

Whats the benefit to quick disconnects? I don't go off roading a lot so would they be worth it?

Huge improvement in flex, if you don't go offroading you won't really need them. But that one time you do go offroading you will be glad you had them.

Several places sell longer links. The sway bar should be +/- 10 from level for best performance.
