looks fine to me,, lengh does not really matter.. the whole purpose of sway bars, is to have them resist against another.. the angle should not matter, if both sides are hooked up without rubbing on something.

I think the sway bar arm(the end where the link attaches) needs to be just under horizontal.

I installed the JKS units on my Father-in-law's jeep, the instructions said approx. 10 deg above horizontal.

Spliting hairs here - is it the bar horizontal or the flat tips of the bar ? sounds like it will work either way but curious.

The proper way for your sway bar to work is that it be parallel to the ground when your suspension is at half of its given travel. I follow the JKS rule of thumb when adjusting the sway bar length.

Just don't wheel with them connected and you should be fine. They should last longer than those cotter pins. My old ones didn't like to stay put.
