Just ditch the sway bar completely. The trac bars too. Doesn't effect anything other than saving your kidneys.

Way too long, if you want to keep the sway bar, cut the disconnects vertical bar and drill a new hole for the locking pin.

The sway bar cuts down body roll and is the last defense against a roll-over if you have to swerve in traffic, but it hobbles articulation offroad. Disconnects are a good compromise. Almost every mod for offroad compromises street handling; choose wisely.

When i disconnected mine i had no negative effects on handling and i am a pretty sporty driver. The only difference onroad is that it rides a lot smoother now.

Usually they're installed so the sway bar ends stay at their original "nuetral" angle. If the disconnects are too long, I think the sway bar ends will be rotated up and may tangle with the steering or suspension.
