Default z51 or zo6 sway bar? whats your opinion?

I have a c5 and just upgraded to bilstein sport shocks. I am thinking about upgrading the sway bars as well.(front and rear) Is this a good mod? I want my car to handle like a sports car and not worried about a luxury ride. My plans are to go with either a c6 Z51 Sway bar or a 97-04 Z06 sway bar. Which is better and why? I plan to upgrade my car to metal end links as well. Could anyone tell me what size bushings I would need as well during this upgrade?


Thanks!
Jeff

just go with the C6 Z06 sway bars from West Coast Corvette I believe they are 236.00 for front and rear and are a direct bolt on on the C5

I was told they are not. The c6 z06 sway bars could only be used on the c6's. The c6 z51 was transferable though. Was my source wrong? I dont know so please tell me?

to the C5 the are the same. I installed a set of c6 zo6 bars on the C6 but before installion I compared them to a C5 with my Z51 sway bars, same shape but bigger. I am just waiting for addition $$ coming in to buy my set.
