Are your toe numbers in inches or degrees? My experience is that a basically stock SVT is very neutral and not "prone" to oversteer, it has to be induced. Stiffer rear springs or larger rear sway will make the rear looser. Any car will have a tendancy to oversteer if you brake while cornering. That's why you do braking before entering a corner. Tires are also an important part of the equation. I'm assuming you do not have aftermarket camber adjustment devises on the rear end of your car. If you do, they should have been able to get the rear camber more even side to side.
