All changes affect the balance and particular handling characteristics of a car. Depending on the relative bar sizes front and rear, and the spring rates and dampers a bigger rear bar can negate the turn in response from a larger front bar. That is where balancing spring rates and bar rates becomes important.

My '96 XP autocross car for instance ran 800 lb/in front and 600 lb/in rear springs with a 22mm front bar and no rear bar for a very balanced and active suspension.

Also very important is the alignment. It has as much effect on handling as any other component in the car.
