PFADT ZL1 sway bar setup?

Okay, I put 285 super sports square on 10in Nurbgering wheels. Zl1 bars on the way. My analysis of their stiffness says hole 1 front and hole 2 rear. Tyler at DPS says hole 2 in the front! According to PFADTs graphs front hole 1 is 20% stiffer than the front 1LE bar and hole 2 rear is 26% stiffer.If I go to hole 2 in the front now the front bar is stiffer than the rear compared to the 1LE setup! Any experienced(track, autocross) users of ZL1 bars?

auto X, staggered setup, middle hole in the rear, softest setting(hole closest to the firewall or rear most hole) for the front. Square setup try middle hole for both and see how you like it

The 1LE rear bar is larger than the front bar from the factory, I too spoke with him and he said their car is set to position 2 front and back. Factory is setup to make the car push at the upper end of being pushed for safety sake. Both ends are easy to adjust and can be done while the car is on the ground so I wouldn't worry about it. Tires/driver feel can make a big difference between cars or even different drivers in the same car. I'm going to start with 2/2 and tweak after I get a few sessions in at the track.
