Worth upgrading 1LE suspenson?

So I have a '14 1LE, besides bushings (trailing arm, rear lower control arm, rear upper control arm) I already have done radius rod bushings, Is it worth upgrading the subframe mounts? Also is it worth changing out the sway bars, or factory struts to coilovers? If I do everything will be Pfadt I've made my mind up on that. Any input is appreciated, I've tracked the car and besides brakes and tires which I will definitely be upgrading I'm not sure what else is worth upgrading on the 1LE.

I like the Bilstein Pss10s better than the 1st gen Pfadts when I had them but for sways I have Pfadt ZL-1 bars. Also their front radius spherical bushings and the front rear smaller solid bushings are a must in my book for all out stability. You could also benefit from lighter wheels, even those ZL-1 rims are still heavy.

I had the Zl1 stock bars on my car and the Pfadts are a noticeable upgrade. I still have my stock cradle bushings even at 46000 miles. It does help to change them especially with added power. After experiencing the Bilsteins Pss10s I will never go back to even the 1LE suspension.
