Default Sway bar -- not lifting other side

I've installed a new swaybar kit, 2.4 on the front, 2.2 on the rear and it does not appear to be lifting the other side.

are you supposed to see a physical lift when the wheels are off the ground with these kits?

The stock springs are fairly hard, I will experiment with softer when i get my hands on some, just wanted to know if you are supposed to feel the opposite side lift by eye.

Take shocks off and see, what car do you have?

Sometimes they will, sometimes they wont. It depends on how hard the sway bar is and how stiff the springs are.

What car BTW?
