Default End link question

Before i order new endlinks, do i need them? I'm raising the front with 4 inch i beam between the frame and crossmember. The endlink center section will be about 7 inches. The factory ones are 3 inches. Im not a suspension guy by any means. Would 7 inch endlinks even serve a purpose being raised that high? With being an independent front suspension, everything is in factory position except for the sway bar and draglink. I was surprised that the draglink has very little down slope with 4 inches of lift.

My thinking is, you need the sway bar more now than ever. I'd connect it...

You are right. Just finished her up and took her down the road. Steered perfect, actually took all the play out but swayed like a 81 chevy malibu.
