In Reply to: Adjustable Sway Bar Question. posted by TCD on January 08, 2001 at 21:32:00:

I have RD adjustable swaybars (and springs too)and I set the swaybars on the middle hole for the front and the third hole (farthest from the end or stiffest setting) for the rear. This eliminates roll and reduces understeer dramatically. If anything the car has slight oversteer which I like. I use my car as a daily driver but also autocross too. Depends most on your driving style and handling preference. Ride quality was fine.

1983 533i

I am preparing to install a set of used sway bars 22/16 on my 535is. Which of the three holes will likely work the best. I will be using the car as a daily driver and for driving schools. Only other suspension mod is a set of RD springs and a set of 225/50/15 R1s for the track.
