Eibach Adjustable Front Sway Bar Question

I recently put one of these on my 05 and I'm trying to figure out which mounting hole on the bar is the firmest and which one is the softest. The install instructions that came with it say the forward most hole is the firmest and the rearward most hole is the softest. I found some other install instructions on AmericanMuscle.com that say the exact opposite. Does anyone know which is which?

The forward holes are the firmest. The forward holes have less leverage (can’t twist the bar as much), the rear holes will twist the bar more during cornering because it has longer “arms”.

Unless you have a beefy rear bar you should start with it at the rear holes.

What dia. is the front swaybar?

What did. is the rear swaybar?

What are you running for tires? Are the rears wider than the fronts?

Front is 35mm. Rear is 22mm. Front tires are 255. Rear tires are 275.

Definitely run the front on the “softest” setting. No more than that, the car will still understeer at the limit set up like you are. If you get a chance to get into a 24mm rear bar jump on it. Then the car will be pretty neutral.
