Stock sway bars can not be adjusted, but some of the aftermarket ones can be, such as our Pedders sways.

I wouldn't really say for most that adjusting them for dry or rain is realistic, the purpose of adjusting them is to adjust the balance of the car in the corners, and it can vary depending on the experience of the driver, surface, mods on the car, and car itself.

There isn't really a solid answer like "this is what you do", it's more of something that you need to tune to your own car and abilities.

Where are you in Mass?

I can arrange for a ride in a GTO or an SRT8 Charger, but i don't have a Camaro on hand to use as a demo car.

I will be having a Get together at the shop in May, so that may (no pun) work out well.

Getting aftermarket sway bars is a good thing to have. but in terms of adjustability and strength of the bar, they are not even close to being he same. Some of the bars out there you can adjust and you will not even know the difference.

But in terms of adjusting for winter versus summer. This is not normally done, but I can see the advantages with a seriously strong set of bars or bars that specifically go after understeer only.
