Sway bar adjustment 914-6

I am sorting a new set up and feeling lost becasue can't find old notes (equitable distribution is an oxymoron). I but senility and all ......
I want to soften adjustable front swaybar setting on weltmeister bar........
Do I move it closer to bar....seems intuitive (as moving away would create more leverage) but just not sure and AX schedule doesn't give me much time for testing.

As infor car has 180# rears springs and 22 front sway bar....just increased spring rate. Ideally bar may need to be 19mm but thats another project.

I think it's the other way around; shortening the lever makes the bar effectively stiffer.

There was a discussion recently on the Racing BBS about this, and one of the guys even dug out the mathematical formula...

Dave is correct...
move the link away from the bar and it is softer
move the link closer to the bar and it is stiffer

Terry you are right about having more leverage if it the link is moved away from the bar...more leverage means you have to use less effort to twist the bar...the effect is softer setting...
