I did that setup once and noticed a huge difference. It was great. Only one problem though which has been reported by a few other users as well. The drivers side bushing for the front swaybar provided by Eibach was too big. It allowed excess movement of the bar up and down creating a clunking noise over bumps. I ended up replacing it with the H&R 24mm front bar. Coupled with the 25mm rear Eibach bar its perfect. There were no problems with the rear bar. Just the one thing I would caution you about.

Nice! Sounds like you got a good bushing. lol.

And as far as your question about it dialing back in some understeer with the bigger front bar yeah it did a bit. But I honestly didn't like it that much with the big bar in front with the smaller in the rear. Just felt like the rear was too wild at times... The H&R really calmed it down a bit.

this feels perfect...it's really neutral with just a little bit of oversteer...and i think it handles just as good if not better than my dads TSX...lol
