I know this has been asked a million times, but I already did a search and managed to get myself even more confused!

For the front sway bar, all I need is the bushings, end links and swaybar itself right? Do I need anything else like brackets or other things?

And the rear has the same required parts, ie swaybar, bushings and end links?

I can do this in my own garage without taking the whole front suspension apart right? On some cars, front swaybar upgrades are COMPLEX..... I guess it's time to break out the FSM.

As for the bushings, what is the best one out there? I want a polyuretane bushing, not a rubber one.

And perhaps the biggest question is this: When I add a 300M special sway bar to the touring suspension, will I have a grossly mismatched combo that rides like crap or can I get away with it until I can get the stiffer springs in sometime after new years?

Ok for the rear sway bar all you need is the bushings and the sway bar it self

heres what was advised to me by tfc for the front

1. Front sway bar will make a difference, but not as noticeble as the rear, and is a lot more involved. You need to drop the front suspension, and the the engine cradle in order to get it out and in.

So that being said i have put that one off from awile but all you need for the front is the bushing and the bar itself.

The above is correct, no other parts.
Read the FSM, you need to remove one side of the suspension and drop the cradle in order to get enough clearance to do the job.
The sway bars or springs/struts have no particular relation to each other except they are on the car.
Stiffer springs will have less movement (harsher ride) and will allow less body roll, which means less work for the S.B.
