2-3\" lift kit for z

i was wondering how you stop the upper control arms you are given with the kit from rough country from hitting the front swaybar links? i the tech said the truck is supposed to sit level, and i put the 2.5 add-aleaf in the rear, and the only way the control arms won't hit is if i lower the t bars seriously, and then the truck looks like one of the new chevy's, low in front, high in back. and i did cut the link bolts like they said. anyone with any brand of this kind of lift have these problems? thanks

Mine has extended links and longer bolts that go betweem the sway bar and the lower control arm. Longer than the stock ones, mine works fine.

I have this same lift on my truck, and I do not have this problem. In fact my control arms aren't even close to hitting the swaybar links! Are you certain everything is installed correctly? Perhaps you can provide a picture of the problem, and I could compare it with my truck and see if there is anything different.
check out the following article, where off road.com installed this same lift on a tahoe, maybe you will see something different.

Hey, look on the Chevy/gmc home page.Ther is a step by step article on the 2-3 Rough country lift on a Tahoe.It's called "TAKING IT UP A LITTEL " or something like that.It tells all the problems they had with the install.And some parts they had to re-engineer.If you're installing this kit yourself you really need to check it out.Ive copied it and attached it to this reply(I think)

I actually cut my sway bar connects down to about 3.5 inches. There is more than enough space after you do that. I have the Skyjacker 3" kit and had the same problem.

How does it feel to be beaten by a sewing machine?
