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.
And that is the kind of feedback I'm looking for!

How long did you wait after installing the kit before you got an alignment? And what kind of rubber/rims do you have?
