Doesn't the Z-bar end arm point to the rear on one side and to the 
front on the other, hence the name? If so, this comes into play more 
as the car settles lower. If both arms face the same direction then 
it is a sway bar and what you say is correct.

I am pretty sure that it is the former, and I have never fi¸˛
