Front anti roll bar question..

Just finished my HD steering and was thinking.. Is the installed stock anti roll bar limiting my front end lift (2" TF lift) ?
Am I off base here?

My truck sits high in the rear with the same amount of lift by 1&1/2" so I have a pronounced forward rake.
I do have an ARB, which and high lift on the front which accounts for some of the rake obviously.

Mine hits on the driveshaft when the front right wheel drops down, so yes, it's limiting travel on that' side at least...I am in the process of making 2" thick spacers to drop the mounting points where the bar mounts to the frame..

Great.. So that will need to come off (rear is gone already)
I know it limited droop on the suspension but lift was a new one...
I come from those small German cars that you want low and stiff

Thanks guys

If one wheel tucks UP into the fender, the opposite wheel usually drops down, at least when articulating.. I should be taking my stabiliser bars off but I am a little more top heavy than you and lifted and still do a fair amount of road driving..

Got that Shane, I was think more of static loading.. Not just articulation.
It seems the anti roll bar may be preventing my front end from benefiting from the full lift. Hence the rake front to rear. (There will be some given the bull bar and winch on the front as well. )
Anyway it moved up on my list of to-do's anyway for off road.
