So I'm not suspension expert, just wanted to say that. But the nature of the XI is to understeer due to the higher weight up front and of course the AWD.

Upgrading the sway up front will just increase that a bit due to the stiffer bar and much more planted front. Probably won't be bad, just might enhance the understeer a bit. It's good you got the rear too.

To be honest, I reduced my understeer some extent by going with 245/40 tires all around. I removed the stagger to reduce some rear grip to attempt to reduce the understeer.

Suspension will for sure reduce the OP's body roll but a combination of sways and suspension would likely be a very sweet setup.

Didn't mean to alarm you
