Default Bush Replacement V70R

I have a 53 plate V70R. Its an amazing car and used most days. I suspect that its time to rebush the suspension, so can anyone offer a suggestion as to what bushes work best and the type of money is involved?
So far I have a stainless exhaust, CAT back and have upgrade the sound system to one with DAB and apple Play. For a 17 year old car this is still such a pleasure to drive and now very rare, so I want to do the right thing and keep it on the road.

Can you be more specific about which components you're looking to give attention to?

Wishbones for example can be replaced complete with new standard bushes already installed at around 150-200 each or you can can replace the existing bushes with polyurethane ones. Labour costs for removal and insertion can vary.
Some P2 subframe bush designs can be shored up with polybush inserts at around 25 with no bush removal required.

Default Update

I am looking to have all the bushes checked and replaced, if they are fixed in to a component then I will replace as needed, otherwise I suppose I am asking which after market bushes give the best performance in a V70R. I like to do preemptive actions rather than waiting for failure and damage.
I want to keep enjoying this car and keep it running for as long as possible.

Lemforder make many genuine Volvo steering and suspension components so will be a safe bet.
Given that the originals have held up so well for 17 years though, there's also a strong argument to stay genuine.
