Default Sway Bar Links - HELP!

Hey, I have a 99 Ram 1500 4x4 reg cab, short bed that is in need of a passenger side sway bar link. I'll prob do both links just to get them done and so I dont have to worry about them. However, the truck has a 5" Tuff Country lift kit and dual steering stabilizers up front. My question here is can I buy OEM links or do they have to be bigger/aftermarket ones because of the lift kit??

As I researched a couple lifts online, most appear to come with Sway Bar drop brackets and do not mention having to swap end links, and they don't come with end links. I would say that since aftermarket end links are not part of the original kit, then factory ones are likely used. I would say that you best bet would be to take one to your local auto parts store and compare the length of yours to the OEM replacement. If they're the same, I'd venture to say your good to go.
