It only works if your car is lowered. We're mostly on Tein coilovers...those with the sway bars.

it works regardless of the height of your vehicle.
but it does work BETTER as the vehicle is lowered.

also, changing the rear and not the front, or vice versa, changes over/under steering characteristics of the vehicle. stiffer in rear increases oversteer or reduces understeer. stiffer in front does opposite. it's all about balance. most FWD vehicles come w/ a strong understeer tendency from the factory, so using a stiffer rear bar will move the characteristics closer to neutral. however, most drivers are more comfortable w/ lots of understeer, since that is what they've been given for years.
