sway bar upgrade - bushings too?

Converting my non-ZSP suspension to ZSP springs, Koni FSD's and front sway. Since I'm replacing the sway bar anyway would a sway bar bushing upgrade make sense there too (Powerflex? M3? something else?)

Thanks,
Howard

New swaybars normally cums with their own stiffer bushing, just make sure you LUBE it well...naamean.

The sway I have is lightly used, about 7k miles, so the OEM bushings are in pristine condition. I'm wondering if Powerflex or M3 sway bushings would be a worthwhile upgrade since I'm replacing the bar anyway.

Thanks.

Sure thing: M3 bar w/bushings & castings. Not expensive.

2 part bushing easily snapped together on the bar w/rubber mallet. Silicone grease, of course.
