Body Roll Help - Please!

Sorry everyone, but I put a new title on this thread trying for the max feedback. My other title had to do with bushings. After reading the responses, it seems as though bushings will have little to do with my body roll issues. After my car puked up a clutch at Sebring this past weekend, I then road with my buddy in his 911 Carrera. He has very stiff suspension, and I felt very little body roll. Seems to me I simply need stiffer anti sway bars. I'm surprised the stock bars aren't strong enough. When he was running behind me he also commented that he could see the roll in my car. Here are some of the other details:

I put Eibachs on my FD, which lowered it an inch, with the stock shocks, and now I'm getting top of wheel well rubbing in the front, mostly on the left side. I also have more body roll than I would like. My first assumption is that the Eibach Pro-kits are stiffer than the stock springs. Can anyone give me the relative spring weights/tensions?

I'm thinking if I could eliminate some roll I could get rid of the rubbing as well.

Bushings and sway bars are stock and the car has 75K miles on it.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated to help my body roll issues. Once again, seems to me that stiffer sway bars, IF they make that much of a difference, would reduce the roll, eliminate a lot of the rub, and keep me tighter to the ground in all the corners, i.e. a more even contact patch between inside and outside tires. Make sense? Or am I whacked?

First off, get rid of those Eibachs!.. if I remember correctly they are a progressive spring, which are designed for a smooth road car ride with a more agressive stance. Not what you want in a race car. You need something alot stiffer as well as some good bushings. I would always take new sway bars with that as well.
