I don't claim to be a suspension guru, but wouldn't using a rear swaybar
accomplish the same thing as increasing shock stiffness? Both help to
resist body roll, which helps the cornering, etc. but it seems like
adding a swaybar would give you the best of both worlds, better
cornering without sacrificing the smoother ride the softer stock shocks
yield.  Has anyone ever tried this? if so, how does it effect the
overall handling balance? Any added oversteer or understeer?
