More info is needed to try to help you. What size lift kit? Did it come with a rear trac bar relocation bracket? What bolt hole won't line up, the axle end or the frame mount? Are the rear shocks installed? Did you try to jack the rear end up under the diff in the center to compress the suspension? Sounds like a lot of questions but I'm just racking my brain to cover everything.

rear sway bar

Thanks for trying to help!HERE WE GO!!Installed 2" rubicon express budget boost.This kit didn't come with rear trac bar relocation bracket.The shocks and lift went on easily.the only thing i couldnt get was the FRAME side sway bar mount to line up.I tried jacking up under both sides and dif.The instructions said that the sway bar connect was to be connected after shocks were installed.i just can't get original bolt back in.I was able to get smaller bolt in for now.

Unbolt the antiswaybar links where they attach to the frame on the sides. You'll be able to bolt the bracket to the axle very easily after that. The links will be a piece of cake to reconnect afterwards so long as your Jeep is parked on flat ground.

I feel stupid! I just re-read your post and realized that it says sway bar, for some reason I thought trac bar when I posted. Sorry bout that!
