Also - compared to new suspension, how beneficial will be to lower the ride?

I spot a complete set of bushings while browsing for parts - worth to replace them ?

There is no "safe" ride height. Ride heights for either the Koni and Bilstein options are not adjustable, except by spring length. If you're concerned about speed bumps, I'd suggest retaining the OEM springs for maximum ride height.

Bushing replacement may be worthwhile, but it really depends on how hard your Z was ridden and put away wet.
