Question Need some help, quick question.

So I installed my new Zone 3" lift kit and now I've noticed that it is leaning to the right. I made the mistake of not measuring the sway bar links to see if they were different sizes or not and it didn't say what length they are on the instruction manual. So, after further investigation and a tape measure, it seems as if my left front sway bar is longer than the right front.

My theory is if I switch the driver side rear with the passenger side front, everything should level out. Does that sound right or am I just crazy? I'm not sure if the sway bar links could have anything to do with the height.

Any insight or help I can get would be greatly appreciated.

Parked on level ground, the axle is level and so is the antiswaybar. Thus the links need to be the same length. The front swaybar link lengths should be adjusted so the antiswaybar is somewhere around 15 degrees above horizontal. No need to get an angle finder out to set it to 15 degrees, the exact angle is not critical so long as it is slightly above horizontal.
