I had my FRPP kit for about 2 months or so before I installed Steeda's 22mm rear sway bar (my car did not have a rear bar.) With out the rear bar, the FRPP was a noticeable improvement over stock but I feel like the rear bar was helpful in turns and when pushing the car harder (on/off ramps)

I also upgraded my front sway bar to the SVT's 21mm from my stock 18mm size. The addition of the rear bar was more noticeable than increasing the front but they work well together and I feel they help the car act more neutral and predictably in the turns.
