Default truck eats sway bar links, anyone else?

in the last 30,000 kms I have probably put 5 or 6 sway bar links on it, sometimes having to replace both sometimes just one, sometimes with good ones (moog) sometimes with welfare ones, I seem to make it like 3-5 months and have to do one or both again, the exepensive ones are about 90 bucks each the cheap ones about 70, labour is free as I do it myself but it is getting annoying doing it so often so I am starting to wonder what the hell is going on, the only thing I can think of is maybe I need ones that are slightly longer because of the leveling kit? my drivers side sway bar link is clunking again (changed it in october with a cheap one - should have got the warrantied 90 dollar one) and the noise pisses me off especially now that many roads are snow covered and uneven.

Anyone else have an issue similar with having to do sway bar links often. I bought the truck off my father it was stock, I know he didnt have to do them like this, if anything he probably did them one or twice in 127,000 kms. Hoping to replace this truck in the summer with a 2500 and give it the carli suspension treatment to end any bullcrap like this.
