You are right to say that you can feel the improvement up front. It does help because the shell is so soft that a big pothole can twist the front shock towers. As for the rear, unless you have coil-overs, it will not make a difference. The springs push on the underbody, not on the rear towers. If you hear some squeaking from the rear end, it might be your trailing arm bolts that only need to be tightened...

Some may have different opinions...

I have a question about that. I'm my car, the last owner had the rear metal plate that seperates the back seats and the trunk cut up. Would it be a good idea if I got a rear stress bar to make up in the lost strength from that little wall?
