Thanks. By the way, I did the removal of the sway bar and test drove it, and it was normal, no more knocking sound when driving over bumps. Bought a set of MOOG sway bar bushings for $13, already had changed the links a week ago, and it's fine now. The keys of it all I believe was, no feeling in the steering wheel when hitting bumps and getting the knocking sound, also the feeling in the floorboard as opposed to up higher like the top strut mounts. And, I did the tie-rod end, ball joint shake test with the car on jacks, and everything seemed tight. I also zip-tied a Go-Pro camera to the top of the strut mount plate and shot a video of the top strut plate as I hit bumps, and everything was normal there as I watched the video. So that left the sway bar.
By the way, if your looking for the bushing set, apparently there are 3 different sizes it can be and you gotta know what size before you buy. There is a 22mm, 24mm, and 26mm bar diameter bushings.
