As far as oversteer, I haven't lost traction at any point with my Focus. It never rains here, so I don't anticipate a lot of problems. I did notice an unexpected response from the car since I put in the RSB when I went through one turn at speed. I can't really describe it but I didn't feel out of control. I want to say the car responded better through the turn but I wasn't expecting it. I don't know. I definitely am enjoying the reduced body roll.

thanks for the info.. I'll be sure to torque them down well.

it's my understanding that it is at speeds, such as an on/off ramp, the big sweepers, etc that the oversteer would be most noticeable...not in daily about town driving.
