So any idea what setting on the adjustable whiteline sway bar the non-adjustable is comparable to?

Probably the middle one at a guess.
I've got the non adjustables on the ED.
30mm Front and 25?mm rear (Maybe 24mm, I can't remember)
I only paid from memory 120 for the front and 140 for the rear.
Also data_mine, have a read on whitelines website, there was a little doco they had about 'assymetrical adjustment of swaybars', basically having the bar diagonal.
I only glanced it, but I'm sure it would be an interesting read.

cant really fault whiteline in their efforts to educate though can you... if you want to know about it, they are happy to help.

One of the reasons i went through them.

And fraser, $70 for the swaybar? sheez, thats cheaper than i would have expected... oh well

The idea of asymetric suspension scares me.

I guess with our live axle rear ends, rear asymmetry would do nothing.

I spose it's place would be on a track where for example it is run clokcwise, so set up the asymmetry to prefer the right turns.

We already have assymetrical suspension setups anyway.
Different camber and caster for each side, to compensate for side to side weight difference.
It'd be interesting to see some actual practical testing of there theory, see the effect it has 'on-the-track'.
Have you got adjustable bars front and rear data_mine?

yeah, but no I won't be testing those ideas. Far to much effort for someone as procrastinistic as myself.
