Of course there is a difference. The stiffer the anti-roll bar setting, the less independent the suspension becomes at that end off the car and that is not a good thing. The outside tire is being pushed up by the suspension compression during roll. The inside tire is being pulled up by the anti-roll bar and it's spring is resisting that. If we are talking about the rear of the car, do you really want the inside tire being pulled off the ground? Nope.....
