doing just the front bar will increase the inherent understeer Honda already engineers into the Accord chassis. The car will seem to corner flatter, but it will overwork the front tires and in hard maneuvers it will push.
As stated in other replies, if you go with the standard TL rear bar you'll slightly reduce the understeer. If you go with the 20mm rear bar, you'll have a very good chance of snap oversteer, especially in fast side to side movements.
If you put in the biggest TL rear bar, you really should put in the 27.2 front, I went with the hollow bar to get some weight off the front end. I also had to put Ingalls camber correctors in the rear. My car has the HFP suspension and the extreme negative camber on the rear tires already had the rear end destablized. I had the alignment, set at half tank of fuel, to -.9 degrees camber, and 3 mm total toe-in. I wanted to ensure no snap oversteer with the ever so slight increase in total toe-in.
