Sway bar upgrade question

I have a 01 ex that was lifted either 2 or 2.5 inches .... When i called up to order a set of helwig sway bars they said the sway bars are only for stock height ... Now the sway bar i have in front now appears to be stock so wouldnt the helwigs work ? I get a lot of body roll on turns and truck sways a lot on road .... I already put bilstein5100s in which made a huge difference but i still wanna make it handle better to transport the fam ....Anyone that can help me with this i would apreciate it

a lot of lifts provide a sway bar drop ( spacer to lower sway bar )
if that is what u have then the swaybar won't know it's lifted since it all locates at stock distances

that being said I have a Helwig for a stock lift on my rear with an 8 inch lift it's real easy to extend links
