Sway bars question

Hi all, I received my sways bar and I'm going to get them installed tomorrow.

I have one question, how do I adjust the sway bar ?

Here is a picture of the rear sway bar:



Which hole is hard setting ? A or B and which one is the soft setting ?

Also is it the same for the front sway bar ? My guess is B is hard and A is soft since B is closer to the bar, but I'm not sure.

Thanks for your help,
Have a great day

Soft setting is A, for both front and rear.

Thanks you

Do you think this is a good setup 28mm front soft, 24mm rear hard ?

Your sway bars are pretty hard already I'd start out both soft and go from there.

Word to the wise--inspect the bolts before you screw them back in. The subframe bolts that came with my sway bar were stripped, so when I re-inserted them it exacerbated the problem even more.
