I still have the "A" arm since day one and it works for me so far but i'm still curious of what effect the "B" and "C" arms will have.
the C position has the closest distance to the steering cam. this give more linear steering while A give more drastic change on steering angle.

the kawahara sway bar shown on fish's car is the earlier version. the newer version only comes with softer arms. I personally prefer the stiffer version. Hear it say kawahara will only offer the softer arms now.

So the c position gives you more all around steering?

the stiffer blade/arm is wider inside while the softer blade/arm has equal width.
