What a difference!!
Changed sway bar links and bushings Wednesday night. Hard to believe how much smoother and stable the car is, not to mention that the "clunk" is gone. I still intend to change the hydraulic accumulators, but it's not nearly as urgent as it seemed. The repair was relatively easy, and went smoothly, did one side at a time, and finished in about an hour and a half working slowly.
