Why spend more than need be to do the same? The J&M’s are a good choice for those who want a better “launch” while retaining the ability to corner.JBert and 901X are most likely correct especially if money is tight. I believe that is an issue you mentioned.
Plus you'll be saving money for those cams and other accompanying upgrades. 😜👍
I think I’d rather have J&M’s “ball bushing” over the Steeda’s. I don’t have any direct experience with the ones for the s197’s but the J&M’s for the 94-98 are plenty beefy, plus you get the nifty bushings that help to reduce binding. The black one is what I put on my ‘95.They say the poly bushings will ALWAYS increase NVH a little over the factory soft rubber bushings. I guess it's a question of whether it is noticeable or not; which depends on how picky you are about noise, and how noisy your car already is.
I went to poly bushings in the rear (and also the front) and did not notice any big or objectionable increase of NVH; but my car is pretty noisy already and I'm fairly tolerant of mechanical sounds.
I think pretty much all of the aftermarket LCA's are an improvement over factory, not sure the brand or model really matters much. I'd look for nice beefy round steel ones, or the "best" might be the larger rectangular cross-section aluminum ones like Steeda sells. The Ford GT500 LCA's are only a very small improvement over the regular GT ones, so I'd skip those.
The steeda’s look closer to oem.
