Default Extended Sway Bar links!! HELP

I have a 2003 ranger edge. i have the torsion keys torqued and add a leaf with a 3in BL. When the torsion bars where torqued the stock linkage's became useless. It rides fine, actually better with out it, but i new them to pass NYS inspection and had no luck trying to fine them. i don't know if links from another vehicle with fit. Any info is helpful

I'd think that the whole antisway bar would have blocks added under the brackets for a body lift. Whatever, I'm outa my territory but someone who knows more will be along.

A body lift has no affect on the stabilizer or any of the suspension for that matter. If I were you I would fab up some blocks to lower the stabilizer bar and inch or so from where it mounts to the frame and that would alleviate the need for longer links.

Thats definitely doable and practicle. Theres a local machine shop that could fab those up. Thank you for the solution Like i said, finding these links for the 2003 ranger seems nearly impossible.
