I'm actually curious to see what only a rear sway bar upgrade would do to the ride of a car. It should push you towards understeer. If you only have time for one at a time do the rear sway bar first... It'* MUCH easier (about 1/3-1/4 of the time for the front) and much safer then running around with an upgraded front and stock rear.
upgraded Rear only will push OVERsteer
if you've got adjustable endlinks on your car try it sometime... loose up the front a bit (assuming you'd have them tightened down pretty good) ...and tighten down the rear endlinks ... the car will want to kick the tail end out more
oh And Master3rd ... Domestic Performance sells a set of Coil overs for the Hbody but they are EXPENSIVE
without going to full custom order suspension stuff... this is basically what I've come too for a great performance street handling suspension (and adjustable enough you could drag and autoX with it)
- F41 front bar
- addco rear upgrade bar
- adjustable endlinks
- urethane swaybar bushings
- domestic performance 2inch lowering springs @ F41 spec (or even a little higher... but you'll have to talk with them about exactly what rate)
- KYB GR2 front struts
- Monroe sensatrac Rear struts For Air leveling suspension (get an air pressure gauge and a switch with either a stock air leveling compressor, or cheap compressor from an air suspension company)
I have a friend that works in a urethane plant so I'm getting custom filled engine and trans mounts and custom copies of allll the rest if my suspension bushings(as soon as I can get a new bushing set from GM to send him to make copies of)
but the above suspension should be more then enough for a street performance car that occasionally see'* track time
