Quick question on sway bar setting

Guys, quick question:

There are 3 holes on my Whiteline sway bar. try as I might, I can't seem to find any instructions for setting the rear sway bar at its stiffest

I've taken a pic of the rear left wheel and the sway bar and uploaded the pic here.

I'm told that the leftmost hole will give me the stiffest setting, and the rightmost one in the picture (furthest away from the bend of the sway bar) is the softest.

Can someone confirm if this (i.e. the hole nearest to the bend of the sway bar being the stiffest setting) is correct?

I know it is for the RRE bar and it has the same three holes;
"The bar is adjustable. By moving the end links to the more forward holes [far from the bend] , you make the bar softer. Moving the end links towards the rear holes [close to the bend]the bar stiffer and the car will be more neutral."
Think of it as a leverage thing. The further away you can grab a meatal bar, the more it's going to flex, or be softer.

Cheers, turbolarry. That is what I thought as well, but I couldn't find anything to confirm this. Mine is currently set to the stiffest setting and the rear end is a bit looser than it was when I had it on the middle setting.

Seeing how it's practicaly impossible to get an answer from Google on this, I hope this thread comes in useful for those seeking a definitive answer on how to set a swaybar

I hope so too. That's really what we're here for.
