M3 or HD front control bushings?

My car has Dinan camber plates, Koni FSDs and the rest is M-sport suspension. I am replacing the strut bearings to get rid of a slight "clunk" noise when I hit bumps ( I made the noob mistake of not doing it when I replaced the dampers and noticed side-to-site play in the strut mounts) . As part of the process I plan to swap the front control arm bushings in my car. I take the car to the track ocassionally, but priority is to maintain ride quality since the roads aroud here are pretty bad.

Will the M3 bushings introduce vibration or road noise?

I would install the M3 control arms, not only the bushings, for the added .75 camber. They won't increase NVH.

thanks, will add the M3 wishbones later, I am wating to see how -2 deg of camber works on my tires.

My image of roads in Luxemburg tell me you will never feel any NVH, regardless of suspension!
