    Hello Suspension Gurus,
    I have a question about a 1" Rancho rear sway bar adjustment. I recently put a factory style transverse exhaust system back on my car. I had to adjust the rear sway bar in about 1" to stop the down link from rubbing on the exhaust pipe. Now I've never autocrossed this car and I don't really know anything about how this car handles when pushed. I think it handles great for just normal driving.
    So the question - what's the outcome of moving the rear sway bar in?
    Thanks,
    Bryan

    The rate of the bar is stiffer when you move the links in. The shorter "lever arm" makes the rate higher.
