disconnect the end link and drive around a little. you only have to unbolt one spot on each end. if you still hear noise its not the swaybar.

can you reproduce by bouncing the front end up and down while parked?

when up on jack stand is there any play in the tire (side/side or top/bottom)

take wheel off (while on jack stand) and look around. anyplace look like its rubbing (bare metal exposed/no rust). check behind strut boot and see if evidence of leaks.

by using process of elimination, squirt some spray lube making sure to do one joint at a time, and then go for a test drive.

I went through similar this summer and found it was my front end links. very hard to diagnose b/c unbolting those buggers are a pita. Good luck!
