You really should consider getting a pair of rear splats first!!!!

Your rear bar seems like it is too big. What are the spring rates front and rear? Maybe you might try softening the rear shocks. Or, put more tire pressure in the rear and less in the front. Or, get a bigger front bar.

Sheesh, there's a lot of things you can do (and buying rear splats ain't one of them).

Dude...was that why today on the highway you were wagging all over the place?

I would suggest to you what to do...but I'm sure someone with more experience can help you a lot more than me.

If the tail is coming out too much you have too much oversteer. You can soften the rear shocks some or learn to drive it that way.

I highly suggest that you just drop the dampening down on your rear shocks, though. It will cause the car to roll more, but you can't get around that without compensating in the front end more.
