guys. My camaro has a rear sway bar on it. It has adjustments on both sides so i can raise it or lower it. my question is, what would happen if i did raise or lower it? also, what would happen if i just disconnected it? I have a slight push in the middle of the corner and off. Could i adjust on the sway bar to fix the push? thanks.

My opinion on sway bars are to take them off and throw them in the scrap heap. I have run both ways and I feel MY car is better without them. It could be different for you. Try it without you might like it

AC, Relative to what you have now, the effect of adding preload to the sway bar would tend to create oversteer........decreasing preload or removing the bar would tend to create understeer.........

Some guys remove thier sway bar and report no change.......This is usually due to thier spring stiffness......The springs are stiff enough that the bar isn't getting used......Just along for the ride.......

Good Luck,
