Default For those of you with Daizen sway bars

I just had these installed and have a quick question. There are 2 holes on the outer ends of these sways; I guess for adjustment purposes. What do these adjustments do and which setting is typically used for our cars?

Thanks

I don't own one but generally the outter hole will give you a softer 'stiffness' setting while the inner hole closer to the bar will stiffen the cornering ability -- the stiffer the setting, the more it is going to stress the swaybar itself (since you're twisting it a lot more under hard turns), end-links and related components unless you are using beefier end-links and bushings. If the sway bar is designed for our car specifically, then start at the safer point and go from there!

Thank you Sampak. I did some research online today and found this info out as well. My car is currently in the middle setting out of the 3 adjustment holes so I'll just leave it like that for now. It rides nice!

this for the rear sway bar? there should be 3 holes for the rear end links to go into. middle is normal, the inner or outer would be more understeer, and or more oversteer feel, if i remember correctly. it was in the instructions. the front sway bar has no adjustment, its just thicker and poly bushings
