Default Rear end kicks out while taking hard corners

I have upgraded my entire suspension:

BC Racing BR-Type Coilovers (set to front 14 out of 30, rear 9 out of 30)
Whiteline Front/Rear Adjustable Sway Bars (both on softest setting)
Whiteline Adjustable Upper Control Arm Assembly
Whiteline Adjustable Rear Lower Control Arms
Whiteline Rear Lower Control Arm Brackets
Whiteline Adjustable Panhard Bar & Rear Chassis Brace

However, I still have the stock All Season Pirellis on. Until I get stickier summer tires, is there anything I can do to correct the loss of rear grip at 30-35mph? The rear consistently kicks out for a split second, but I'm able to gain control thru the turn during acceleration.

Nothing is going to make all seasons perform like summer tires. I just read on here that most racers keep the stock rear sway bar for a similar reason. Try going back to stock and see if it helps.

Love my summer only tires!

Someone suggested that I firm up the front sway bar a bit since I'd like to keep the rear Whiteline swaybar on...will this work?

Not really, you're firming up your car with out the ability to stick to a surface. Where are you having these issues? You need a better set of tires.
