Does anybody know if I need sway bar extensions either front or rear when I put this on?

After I put my tracbar on my steering wheel was 180 off. I ran the leveling kit for 30K miles on the stock tracbar with no issues besides the driver front wheel sticking out an 1inch further than the passanger side.

Yeah i ran my leveling kit for about 60K with the stock trac bar with no problems, but i jumped a little ditch by accident and after that my tires were not centered and i had Massive death wobble.. Then i put an adjustable trac bar and my tires are centered and no more death wobble..
