Bushing replacement for stock sway bars

I have a 2012 Brembo GT with the following suspension mods:

Roush lowering springs
Whiteline LCA's and relo brackets
Saleen N2 shocks and struts
Whitleline Adj PHB and brace
Ford Racing GT500 strut mounts

The car handles much better than it did originally. However, I was wondering if it were worth doing anything with the sway bars. I was cautious about this as I didn't want to start inducing more over / under steer if I start messing with them.

So, I was wondering if anyone just replaces the bushings for the stock sway bars? If so, is this something I can do on rams or jack stands easily enough? Thanks.

I'm willing to bet Energy Suspension makes some for them. Keep in mind that your Brembo package may have the larger front sway bar than the normal GT (mine does). You should be able to do it in your driveway, one side at a time. You might have issues if you drop off both sides without a helper. Good luck!

I didn't believe the Brembo cars had different bars.

It was my understanding that all GT's had the same sway bars.

I learned that the hard way doing my struts. I took both sides of the sway bar off. Was a pain in the *** to get it back in.

Is it even worth replacing the bushings and keeping the stocks considering the work required is probably the same, I assume?

Are all aftermarket kits an upgrade? Doesn't seem like you can compare diameters since some are tubular and some (like Whiteline) are solid.
