sway bar question

I have a 2014 camaro 1le that i have autocrossed a few times and it understeers a bit. so from looking on here I can increase the rear bar to a 32mm or install a smaller front bar from the stock 1le 27mm bar. any thoughts?

I went w/ a 32mm rear bar. Solves the issue quite nicely without making things sketchy.

I hope to have my ZL1 bar for sale soon it's a little smaller than the 1LE bar.

yup 32mm rear bar will help with the oversteer and make the car feel more neutral. I'm running stock SS front bar and Pedders 32mm rear bar at the moment and the car handles great!

You mean 27? I use Pedders set at 26 with my Oedders coilovers as the stiffer front springs give me more understeer. May go to a zl1 25

By understeer do you mean entry, mid turn or exit? All these can be driver induced at autocross speeds and transitions. What are the tires doing pressure wise? If you increase rear bar to much and start getting inside rear tire to light then you will have less drive bite off the corners. Are you charging corner and over braking deep into the entry? Many things can manifest into understeer.
