Sway link help

I installed the OME HD kit around thanksgiving. Had some clunking and had the sway bar bushings replaced a couple weeks later. No noises for about a month or two and then the clunking started to come back. I had the bushings replaced again and my mechanic said that with the lift, stock length links are causing pre-tension and causing my bar bushings to wear prematurely.

So my question is, what length should I get? I've seen 1" front and .5" rear and the rep from Bwoody said 1.5" all around would do the trick.

Anyone have experience with this? What size(s) did you order?

Just want to get this thing riding right again and this seems to be the last step

Thanks guys!!!

Also, been reading about adjustable track bars and off-center rear axles. Went out and checked and of course, its shifted to the divers side.

I'm gunna get the Rusty's bar. What's a good length? Extra .5"?
