Sway Bars

I have a 91 500Sl. If I install the front AMG sway bar only will it cause any bad handling. Do I need both front and rear. I will also install Bilstein HD struts and shocks.

A stiffer front bar will increase front suspension roll stiffness - which will increase understeer. This is not necessarily bad, but it is better and more predictable to tune the whole suspension as a unit. Replacing both sway bars and opting for sportier shocks will be a better solution.
