Swaybays: Is too thick too much?

Looking to replace factory 20mm REAR sway bar with a 25mm (1in) sway bar. Is that too thick, get rid of understeer but then introduce oversteer?

Steeda's 22mm says 50% increase in rear roll stiffness.
Steeda's 25mm says 150% increase in rear roll stiffness.

25mm too much? Or go for it?

Ideally if you want to tune it in precisely then you will want something adjustable..... But Mustangs do tend to understeer quite a bit, i would go with the 25mm. If it does introduce oversteer then you can fix that by stiffening the front a tiny bit, or add a strut brace if you don't already have one.

I was hoping you'd chime in.

I do have a good bit of understeer left even after springs/struts. I also have the OEM strut tower brace.
