New HP30, steering hits sway links

Hey guys,
So I got some axles from ECGS axles and my brother just put in the HP30 today. Once he finished he noticed that the steering link was hitting the sway bar on the passenger side. My steering is stock so there shouldn't be any problems there, and all brackets were professionally welded on by ECGS. Any chance they messed it up? Or is it something to do with alignment? Here's a picture:

how much lift? The picture isn't great but id say that's an ugly angle you have on steering linkage. Kiss those tie rods goodbye (and ask how I know).

Maybe some GC knuckles or others to give high steer and full crossover?
