Will you be providing instructions on what setups are preferred for each of the 2 and 3 way adjustments? 

example - x setup for front and rear will emmulate ZOK setup most
            - y setup is for road courses
            - z setup is for autocross
etc...

We can certainly give you suggestions on where to start.  Ultimately it comes down to what you prefer not what we suggest, what worked for us on our car, setup, tires, track may be way off for what you are doing.

Do you have a setup that is exactly the same as the LNF ZOK?

Yep, zok bars.  :D But seriously, the attachment on the ends of the bars would emulate the zok the most. Not sure if itd be exact but probably close enough to not notice any difference.

Dave, thanks for installing the new sway bars, Tie Bar and frame brace, I thought I had a great set up, even with the Penske Coil Overs. WOW, what a difference. The new set up really transfers the power to the ground, handing is so, so sweet.

Add me to the list.  Looks like a much better deal than the ZOK bars.

I'm not a race person, but what if I install all of these - DDM's Backbone, Probeam, Venom Brace, and the Cross Bay Brace, then what would these sway bars do extra? Did I do overkill or would these give me some extra stability or something?  I would not know what the advantages of adding these would be, seems to me like racers would be in the know about these kinds of products as there's no description for an average driver, though still an enthusiastic owner, about new parts for the Sky.

Venom Brace and Cross Bay Brace do the same thing.  one is mounted at the top the other at the bottom of the front suspension.  You don't need both.  All the braces help stiffen the chassis

Sway bars on the other hand control the lean of the body.  Stiffer bars lean less and help control the tire patch on the road.
