Extended Rear Swaybar Links Needed for OME?

If I get the OME 2in lift with the heavy springs and long travel shocks for my four door, do I need extended rear sway bar links? I'm getting longer brake lines, but I wasn't sure if I had to have the links as well.

You will need longer links front and rear. You want the sway bar ends to be near parallel with the ground.

Based on what I've read here, swaybars need to be parallel to the ground +/- 5 degrees. So for $80 I bought adj.'s from Northridge and moved the rears to the front and all is well now. I know the Quadratec catalog said I did not need them but it made me feel better to put them on.

I cut the rears in half, found some good strong steel tube that had an ID that was real close to the OD of the rear links, cut the tube to the proper length to level the bar and welded them up. After a coat of paint, doing fine after two years...cost, about 10 bucks as I recall....

Thats what I am planing on doing except I'm going to move the rears to the front and cut and extend the fronts for the rear
