If you swapped from a SBC to BBC you'll need to replace your Springs/Shocks with BBC parts, but other than that there is no need to switch to energy suspension style bushings. I guess it depends on what you plan on really using the car for, but IMO you could use stock suspension with OEM bushings. If you do decide to go with the energy suspension style just make sure to grease them really well or the will squeak… a lot.
