A question about 6400s and Roll Steer

I impulse bought a set of belltech 6400 shackles for the rear of my (T-bar cranked, 2006 4wd) ranger. I was thinking that they'd level me back up, as well as keeping the tire further away from the front of the flares under articulation, but I've started to worry if they'll effect my roll steer negatively.
Does anyone have experience with how they impact the rear end's handling? If it just dials out some rear understeer I won't mind much, but if it's going to give me rear oversteer and make my handling evil I'll return them and get some explorer leafs.

I've never installed just the 6400's on their own but I've never heard any problems like that from anyone on here.

you'll be pushing the tire closer to the front of the flare

Thank you, I'll install them then. I've never heard anything bad about the handling with them but I started to get a little worried about it with how badly rangers handle without lifts.
