Install was flawless and my car handles so much better in those hard dips and turns. Noticed a difference immediately after installing. Adds rigidness to the rear and overall tightens everything up.
I bought the rear sway bar from steeda and didnt notice anything at all in handling increases at higher speed driving. Bought the rear strut bar from fswerks, fixed the understeer issue immediately. Its not very noticeable at lower speeds but once you hit long sweeping corners you definitely feel the bar keeping the rear stable through cornering. Highly recommended for spirited driving or track use.
This is apparently what my build was missing. Tightened the rear end up nicely. Feels more stable on the highway and long sweeping turns. Build: Bilstein Sport shocks, Ford racing springs, rear sway bar, front traction bar
