Don't think the sway bar does much for you unless you're really taking tight turns and hitting a lot of one-sided bumps, e.g. light off-roading.

What's wrong with your original, and why would you want to change it?

Here's a set of sway bar bushings from prothane on amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Prothane-Jeep-Front-Bushing-76-86/dp/B002WN44G4 I recently bought a whole body kit of prothane bushings and installed the front end bushings (sway bar, disconnects, tie rod bushings), and honestly I haven't noticed a difference from stock. The point, in my understanding, is that they last longer because they resist the elements better.

Edit:

I should add that I doubt there's much better than the original, since it's such a trivial part. You can find them on eBay if you're needing one.

I also found that bushing kit for much cheaper on eBay: eBay prothane kit with free shipping. Measure your sway bar, though, there are two thicknesses and I'm not sure of their application years.
