Default Need help from an XV Crosstrek owner with calipers (front endlink length)

Can anyone out there with an XV Crosstrek and some calipers (the measurement kind, not the brake kind) poke under their car rear quick and get me the length of the front factory endlink from stud to stud (not overall length)?
I just installed the XV front sway on an Impreza, and it appears the XV might have longer endlinks as well. The bar installs ok (and made a trip from MI to VA just fine), but the endlink stud is canted pretty far upwards when the car is resting on the ground.

Impreza bar on top, XV on bottom


Notice how the XV bar has a bit of extra height


XV bar with Impreza endlink. It mounts securely, but offsets the end of the endlink.

I'm sure this has to do with the fact that the XV has 3" more suspension travel than the Impreza. (But that is purely speculation on my part)

That thought crossed my mind. I'm wondering if, because of that, the XV has longer endlinks. If so, those might need to be swapped over as well. I just need someone to measure their length first before I go and spend the $100.

Not many XV owners in here I guess? Maybe I picked the wrong subforum...

I appreciate the response, but I am left confused as to what setups you have actually tried, and what "needs some loven" means...
