your sway bar looks tilted up in the photo and it is not even on the ground which raises it up even more.Ok then. I’m lowered and have aftermarket sway bars by Hotchkis and no modifications were needed to the front. Especially no cutting of anything. Got my Hellwig replacements about to be installed next week. I don’t need anything. Not saying you’re wrong. But I didn’t. And before doing my research on lowering i’ve never seen people talk about doing front sway bar modifications. Only the rear needing shorter or adjustable endlinks. So to the OP I guess it’s up to you. The following picture is not from my ride but another member online lowered with Hellwigs. No modifications were done. Again not saying you’re wrong but I didn’t need to do any modifications to the front for them to fit.
but anyway how much the end links need to be trimmed or not trimmed can depend on the drop used, my 18 had a 4/6 and I basically had to cut the front end link in 1/2 and had to modify it by drilling a hole in the control arm.
now it is lifted 4.5 and I was able to use regular length end links because the lift is designed to keep the drivetrain & suspension in the correct orientation
