Don't install the front if you don't have the rear one. Wait 'til you get it. You will understeer, it's gonna be crazy.

Did you order from the GB that S_Klass is putting together? He probably could've saved you a couple of bucks too!

what if i put on both front and rear sway bars?

That is what i was planning!!!
That will be fine, just do both at once, or if you only have time to install one, make sure it's the rear.

Yeah, what they^ said. If I was you, I'd cancel that order and order a rear bar. You don't even need a front bar for our cars. They understeer anyway.

See if you can exchange it for the rear. That way you can install it right away and decide if you want the front later.

"Understeer", also known as "push", and "dammit, why won't the car turn?", happens when a vehicle doesn't turn as quickly as the angle of the front wheels would suggest. Turning the steering wheel further just makes the tires slip more. An understeering vehicle wants to point to the outside of a turn, plowing ahead instead of where the wheels are aimed.

"Oversteer", AKA "loose", or "OH S*&T!", is when the vehicle wants to turn too far, with the back end sliding around and, in extreme cases, trying to pass the front. An oversteering vehicle feels like it's about to spin, and frequently does if the driver isn't skilled enough to "catch" it.

An easy way to remember the difference is that Understeer is when you see what you're about to hit through the windshield, but Oversteer means you see it in the mirrors...

Understeer is when you turn at high speed and your car has a tendency to push on the front wheels and coutinue straight. Many front wheel drive cars have those characteristics.

Oversteer is when the rear of the car breaks traction in a hard turn tries to spin out. On most rear wheel drive cars you can induce this by stomping on the gas inside the turn or lifting off the gas in the turn.

The whole idea is to make your car neutral, or I prefer it with just a little oversteer. That helps to control a 4 wheel drift while exiting the turns.
