Don't start throwing random parts at the problem until they're diagnosed as worn out. With every suspension part you replace, the car will not handle properly until it is aligned. Ford already has way too much trouble with miserable tire wear even when the alignment is correct.
The cause could be as simple as a loose or worn wheel bearing or as serious as a broken suspension arm due to rust. The best is to have the steering and suspension systems inspected at a tire and alignment shop. Ford front-wheel-drive cars should be inspected at least once a year and immediately when you start hearing clunks or squeaks. They have more trouble with worn parts leading to loss of control and crashes than all other manufacturers combined. Swaying is another symptom that must not be ignored.
