Default A drift beginner‘s 2013mustang need suggestion!!

I'm a drift beginner. I have a 2013 v6 mustang , recently I intend to do some work on it to make it easy to drift. I have 3 questions:
1. What LSD most people use for their mustang to drift. I've already looked for several month, most of productions are made for 5.0GT.
2. I'm not sure if sway bar plays a important roll in drift? Do I need to add both front and rear sway bars or just one side? The mustang is already a FR car which means oversteer , if I just add the rear sway bar , will it be more over steer and hard to drive?
3.What u guys recommend me to do on my mustang to make it easy to drift?
Thanks all 。。。

As far as the differential, all Mustangs from 2011 forward have the same rear end (8.8").

Reduce the weight, might want to look into a stiffer suspension too to eliminate body roll. And power adders eventually. I could be wrong but from what I've seen this would help

Thanks. I bought a 8.8inch 31 spline detorit locker several month ago, but It didn't work.
What do you think of sway bar?

I installed BC racing coilover already, so it's stiff enough. Do I need to add sway bar?

That's odd, if it was for a Mustang it should fit with no issues; that is the correct size and spline.

Someone else will have more information on the sway bar question - much more knowledgeable than me; I race straight line 1/4 mile so suspension is all different.

If you are looking for an oversteer situation caused by sway bars, you are looking for a stiffer than stock rear sway bar. My experience auto crossing is that from the factory there is not as much over steer as you might initially think, but a stiffer rear bar (Strano 8419 bar on full stiff) brought out a lot of over steer (granted that was on those awful BFG all seasons that the base cars come with).
