The sway bar can move up and down, as long as the sway bar links don't hit your tie rod then you'll be fine.

Other than that. Its time to upgrade the suspension and fill in the gap

There is an optimal range for a sway bar to be at. if you are out of this range it won't work as well...and might pose a problem. I say lift it. then everything is all better.

Find the thread on here about homemade disconnects then send the ones that dont fit back and save your money. I did it on my jeep and it works GREAT!.

If I remember right the range on my JKS's was 5 - 15 degrees with 10 degrees being optimal. You can check the JKS website install instructions to be sure.

Sidenote to 06TJinVA: be careful suggesting that folks use the "search" function. I did in the attempt to provide more answers to a posters questions and got in trouble with the "MAN" (4Jeepn)

I ran the larger size JKS discos with only an OME kit without issues. Just consider it room to grow into. Nothing pisses me off more than buying parts to just have to remove and replace later down the road because I didnt plan ahead. I have since gone up a bit higher and they are perfect.

03 Rubi has it down. The angle is between 5 and 15 degrees. Here is the sheet that I received with my JKS disconnects a month ago.Click image for larger version

Oh yea and you can find the angle by using trig. Imagine a triangle when looking at your sway bar. The top of the swaybar link is one of the points of the triangle another point is where the swaybar actually pivots and the last point is horizontal to the swaybar pivot point where it intersects the swaybar link(should be about 2" from the first point of your triangle). Once you have those measurements Use the following formula sin 10=opposite side length/hypotenuse length. If you have any troubles just get me the measurements and I will do the trig for you.
