I agree completely, Understeer is the "safe" route.. The rear sway bar is incredibly flimsy.. I'm sure camber would increase front grip, but from my experience with only these mods.. It does a fantastic job of balancing the car.. The rear end just feels too soft.. Using these M3 components makes a noticeable difference
