Why would you want to lift the inside front? That means less traction on the inside wheel and more work for the outer wheel. The idea of a stiffer roll bar is to reduce body roll and lift as well as make the inside wheel more effective. While I don't think the front of the car has such a problem as the rear (on the Focus), there still would be little use for lifting the inside front wheel (nor should the bar contribute to that).
I'm not trying to lift the inside front tire and I'm not. Contrary to what BadIdea is saying, my setup is not lifting the inside front tire.

However, BadIdea is right when he says that a combination of a very stiff sway bar and soft springs can cause the front inside wheel to lift in turns. It's a case of too much of a good thing can be bad and I think we all agree this is bad.
