Swaybar Angle?

So I installed JKS quick discos on my 03 Rubi. The instructions recommended 10 degrees as the angle when I adjust the links out. When I drive it the jeep doesn't feel as tight as it did before. The instructions showed I can take the angle of the sway bar up to 13 degrees. Would changing the angle make any difference? Or is it just these quick disco?

I'm not an expert, just a guesser. Wouldn't the sway bar angle be virtually irrelevant until you reached the end of it's travel? In other words, you adjust with intent to stay away from extremes of both up and down movement?

The exact angle, within reason, is inconsequential. The antiswaybar moves freely up and down in its holder, changing its angle (within reason) isn't going to affect how tightly the Jeep drives. All an antiswaybar does is make it harder for the left and right sides to move up and down differently from each other. It simply resists the left and right sides moving up or down differently from each other.

Quick discos won't change the feel of anything so long as your antiswaybar is somewhere in a reasonable range of acceptable angle. I've never bothered measuring any of my antiswaybar angles, "just above horizontal" is about as precise as I've ever set one.
