There is a strut tower bar on the car i just bought, does it increase the understeer of the car if I have not upgraded the rear sway?

I am used to a highly modified (and harsh) suspension on my M3, so I am trying to fix this 'plowing' feeling without destroying the ride quality, This is the highway miles car.

TY in advance -

Strut bar doesn't really do anything, unless you've got a "full monty" suspension set-up and seek max rigidity. If you do an "understeer" search on this Board, you'll find most folks have dialed out most "plowing"/"understeer" by going to same size wheels/tires on 4 corners (9.5 x 18 w/275's) and using an adjustable rear sway, set in the middle. Your ride quality won't change.
