The whiteline adjustable (18-22mm) sway bar works as follows:

1) The bar is actually a 20mm bar.
2) There are 3 holes at each edge of the bar.
3) The holes closest to the edges are the 18mm setting. The holes farthest from the edges are the 22mm setting. The middle is 20mm.

Cusco offers a 21 mm front 22mm adjustable rear bar. I just got mine today. Here's a pic of the three holes since Jewbaru's pic didn't work.

there is more than one mounting hole for the endlinks. this results in changing the bar's effective torsional rigidity. the formula for calculating this in in How to Make Your Car Handle, among other books.

they work. it is absolutely worth the premium to buy an adjustable bar. I wish my front bar was adjustable.

they work, they kick @$$. Here's a pic of the bar, you can see the multiple holes that Colin mentioned.

Geocities sucks, so right click on the X, and copy and paste the URL into a new window. It should show up. If not, I'll e-mail you the pic.
