I want to keep the stock suspension's "suppleness" over potholes in the city (up and down damping?) but I want to add a little bit more firmness in the side to side swaying, so would I screw up the suspension set up if I just buy the MS sway bars and keep all the other springs and shocks stock? or is it ok to just change the sway bars?
or what would you recommend in my situation (just want slightly less leaning when I corner, but wanna keep it bearable for potholed roads)? go with sway bars first or springs first or springs and shocks first? thanks

I believe there is no problem and that just putting on sways with the stock springs is perfectly fine. Many people do it and your car will be fine unless someone had a really bad experience with it? i never knew of anyone who had a really bad experience with justinstalling sway bars though...

I'm right there with ya. I am just installing front and rear sway bars for now. I didn't want to do springs for the simple reason that I don't want to cut the life of the stock shocks. I am eyeballing which coilovers I want for the time being.
The sway bars alone should help some and will work fine...
Just remember that though tire rack and others say that installing after market springs or suspension parts will not affect your warranty; that is not entirely correct... If you change the sway bars and then your engine has a problem you will be fine, however if you have any problems with the suspension and the sway bars are not an equivalent or authorized part you will not be covered as per our Mazda rep...
