For taller lifts, people usually install adjustable track bars or relocation brackets to account for this. Not usually worth it for a BB. I didn't worry about it then.
Your sway bars are fine, too, for a 2" BB.
The thing most people don't know or think about is to loosen all eight bolts that mount the control arms, so they can be torqued back down at the new static positions. Do this before you try to remove and reinstall springs, it makes it much easier.
