rear sway bar extended links

The jeep feels a bit tippy off road, and its highway manners are really annoying. I am going to re install the rear sway bar. I took it off when it was lifted because I never bought new links, but I want to see if this will help with stability. I don't need quick disconnect ones.

What kind of links are available? What kind would you recommend?

Looking for extended ones that would fit for about 4 inches of lift.

Will the factory sway bar work with the 8.8? I have the R.E. bracket kit which has the brackets for the sway bar, but just wondering with the change in axle, will it still work.

I don't have the original hardware besides the bolt that holds the links to the bar, anyone know what size hardware I would need. I seem to remember a special tab on the frame side to keep the nut from spinning.

Yep, it's a good idea to get that rear bar hooked up.

I'd call RE about what length link to use with the 8.8". I have the RE rear links on my 5.5" kit.

Here's what I found as to Jeep parts for '99:

The stock swaybar will work.

You can move the brackets up a little on the axle housing so you have enough clearance for the bigger 8.8 pumpkin.
