Any one out there upgraded sway bars on a cabriolet?? Mine is all original Sport susp now

From what I've read, cabriolets have 23.5 or 24 mm F and 20 mm R, which is thicker than coupes with sport suspension or even coupes with ZHP suspension.

The only reason I ask is I only want the drop of H&R sport srings or Eibach Pro-kit but I am afraid they won't offer the level of handling improvement I want. I was thinking the sways would help but also if I do spirings, shocks and sways I in coilover territory for cost.

Should I just go with PSS or KW 1 coilovers and leave the sways as-is. I don't was to spend 1700 for adjustable coilovers but would be willing to go 1100 for non adjustable dampning if it gives me the stiffness I am looking for witout excessive drop. I know there are lots of advocates for coilovers, but almost all are on a coupe or 4 door and verts are obviously different based on the factory set up for sway bars.
