Don't rush to 265s or 275s for the rear wheel's tire widths. Everyone's all about width on the rears, and it's only hurting the understeer problem. Secondly, you should be running more tire pressure on the rears than the fronts. I run 36psi rear, and 32 front. While the car isn't neutral, it's really not too far off. With DTC on, I can send the ass out on a ramp without too much trouble at all.

Rear sway bar certainly will help, and bushings maybe a little.
i thought most people put more psi in the front tires to reduce understeer?
