Although the sway bar bushings might look ok they are a problem area and I have replaced a ton of them.

Jack up one side and grab the wheel at 3 & 9 o'clock, shake it, and if it moves too much and the outer tie rod is good, the inner tie rod could be bad. They tend to sound like a coffee perculator from inside the car.
