Excellent, the cars need both bigger bars. So rarely has anyone installed both(I haven't either), it's not known what bushings are needed for the best balance.

Each driver is different of course, but you will prefer a certain stiffness and balance that will differ from others. Some might like all rubber bushings, while others may want the urethane for maximum stiffness. The good part is you can mix the two and place them to adjust the balance foremost.

I'd suggest installing the pieces you have on hand, and slowly testing it out. If you think it needs more stiffness at one end, put more urethane bushings there. Try to get it balanced the best way you like it, and then maybe a tweak is all it takes to fine tune it, soften it a bit with say a pair of rubber bushings at one end of the end links. That's the last step, and you're almost there.
