    You'll get more lift off oversteer, this can be a pro or a con depending on the environment your driving the car in and driver skill.

    Go for it. You'll need one at least 22mm thick. It's not until you start going over 26mm thick that you start getting lift off oversteer and even then it's very handy having a car that tightens into a corner if it catches you out and you have to brake mid corner.

    Polybush the front antiroll bar, that's all it needs as the front bar doesn't make as much difference as a rear one so no need to waste money on a thicker one.

    If you were racing the car it would be a different story.

    What other suspension mods have you done?

    Cheers
