Understeer

So I put the Gt rear sway bar in and noticed an increased amount of understeer, I was just reading up and apparently you should upgrade your front one to? I MUCH prefer oversteer rather than understeer, so my question is what year v8s have a bigger front sway bar than my stock front on my 01 v6?

A mach one does...the gt ones are pretty much the same. Some got a slightly thicker unit but they weren't specific to any particular year.

You probably have a thicker front bar which will increase ur understeer issues. Why not go with an adjustable rear bar if u want to add a bit more oversteer.

You can also try running a heavier spring rates in the rear or put on a V6 front bar.
Also you can add more negative camber and pos castor to increase a bit more steering.

What about the steeda front bar? Someone near me is selling one on Craigslist, doesn't a bigger front and smaller back decrease understeer but increase oversteer?

It will do the opposite and increase understeer. What you would need to do is run a smaller front bar and larger rear bar if u wanted to add oversteer. You can also try adding a heavier rear spring etc.

You will get a bit more if ur running a soft sway bar in the rear yes. Ideally if u want to increase oversteer run a thicker larger diameter stiffer sway bar in the rear.
