For everyone. There is an issue with adventure co. Springs with the factory sway bar links. If your serious to off road your metris like I am Highly recommend replacement sway bar end links. The factory link will bottom out against the lower control arm and snap off causing potential of a tire puncture. They bottom out because the lifted springs make the travel of the links 2in shorter then factory. I got these reinforced replacements from EVO. They are adjustable and made for a Jeep JK. 1/2" studs same as ours. And fit purfect with HD hein joints standard. My length is set to 13.25" center to center. So far many dirt trails later, no complaints.

the same happened to my lifted metris as well, see my thread/post.
when the links bent there is the possibility that they touch and squeeze the brake hose. in my case it bent the tab on the strut which holds the brake hose.
i altered and extended 2 new sway bar links.

Exactly how does this happen? I have a lifted ADF Metris (done by ADF with their spines) that I have taken off road and after inspecting the links I see no bending, snapping, or any signs of deformation. Is this an issue with extreme suspension travel? I've been on as rough terrain as I expect to be going forward and with no damage; my sense is that nothing needs to be done? Thanks for any info.
