    On topic: Did an oil change today and used the Liqui Moly cleaning stuff. Not sure if it makes a difference but I figured it can't hurt. Inspired by t.er I also set my front sway bar to max stiff and what do you know, it eliminated the understeer I had. I also reattached my rear sway bar and used some hose clamps to hopefully keep in place until I can get it my welding guy who will weld some plates on the ends so that the end links won't come off anymore. He'll also fix up the crack that I have.

    Had a post cat o2 sensor replaced. I'm game to do the pre cat sensors but no thanks on the others. SES light gone. Got it buttoned up in the garage before this snow storm starts.

    Spent the last couple days fabricating my corner scale pads w/ integrated grease plates. This has been pretty tiring with lots of cutting, grinding, and welding. But should be worth it in the end, this should complete my full DIY alignment and corner balance setup!

    My guess is reconnecting the rear bar helped your understeer. Tightening the front bar would increase understeer. Remember, soft is grip.

    I wiped down the leather with some Leatherique Pristine Clean. Just a maintenance wipe down to keep it moisturized, not a deep soak / feed.
