In your case, it looks like the rod and bar is still in tact.
For the rear, if I were you. I would just have the rods made longer.
I think the lift puts it under too much strain in standard form.

The rear one is the interesting one.

A couple of guys have snapped standard and extended ones.

I have the extended OME ones and they just do not look beefy enough for the length and I think the big lifts on Alex's and Dirk's are going to require something with more meat.

I also know that the ones for the 50 mm lift are 65 mm longer so the calculation is not just extending by the amount of the lift.

Yep, luckily did not brake/snapped, just came undone, but the handling was bad, could not go past 95km/h so I would definitely never consider removing mine.

Interressant.
Watse suspension is in jou voertuig?

Ek ry nou redelik lank sonder sway bars in myne en kan nie regtig kla oor die voertuig se hantering nie. Daar is wel meer body roll as my bakkie, maar dis verstaande.
Myne het TJM coils in en tjm shocks agter en ome voor. Nie seker of dit 2 of 3" lift is nie...

En het ook geen verskil agter gekom na die voorste sway bars verwyder is nie (in altwee my patrols)
