If the struts are really as old as the car, then in my opinion your first purchase should be a set of struts and springs. Get a feel for those and then buy some swaybars and endlinks.
In my experience, stiffer swaybars and endlinks will make worn strut assemblies (strut and spring together) work even harder.
KYB AGX struts are not a bad choice for the '02, although I would recommend using the search function as there are many great threads on this topic already!
