Why do the 4.6L cars have smaller rear sway bars than the 3.8L's? Wouldn't the added weight of the V8 cause more understeer requiring a bigger sway bar in the rear to balance out the steering? I am curious to know. Advantages or disadvantages?

Interesting sway bar calculator.
Even if you don't get the overall specs right for a tbird specific bar, you can see the impact of solid vs tubular in terms of stiffness.
