Lift and Now Question

Did my rough country BB lift 2" in front 1-1/4" in back. Now after I did this I still had quite a rake to the jeep, front sat 2" lower then the back so I bought some pro comp 2" springs for the front and just installed them tonight. Springs were pretty much the exact same heigth as the stock ones but much larger diameter and a few more coils and it evened out my jeep. Measures 36" to the flares I believe. Must add I have a winch and plate up front so front was sagging a bit before. First question I'm pretty sure I now need longer sway bar links as the originals were a pain to get back in where is a good place to get some, look on quadratec and they wanted $80 for the cheapest ones. Second is there anything else I should worry about? I am getting an alignment tomorrow (unless the sway bar links might change something then I'll wait) I test drove it up to 70 and no shakes or vibrations..

You should be all good bro. Yes get the Alignment but on a 2" I wouldn't worry about anything else if you're not experiencing any drive issues. You shouldn't need extended swaybar links either I never needed them with mine, the sway bar will move to adjust with the lift but it may change the angle just a little. Any higher and you may want to think about extended sway bar links. That's just my opinion based on my personal experience.

Well see not only do I have 2" spacers in the front but also 2" springs which will probably sag with weight down to what 1-1/2" so technically I have a front 3-4" lift

Ah ok I got it! I would do Extended Sway Bar Links then. I actually have a set of front and rear links from RC brand new I never used I'd be willing to sell ya. They are for a 3.25" lift so give or take a little should work if you're around there. So if you got it leveled out what do you think there rear is sitting at? $20 plus shipping which I can ship from work so it wouldn't be but maybe $8. Also I would check your breather lines from you axles and brake lines. I don't know how off your alignment would be either so depending on that you may look at adjustable control arms.

from what I read your sway bar should sit at about a 10 degree angle
