front end cluncking sound on 2002 wrx

i have 2002 WRX that has developed a clunck in the front end. My father thinks its the swaybar links. the bar and links are both stock and the car has 130000miles. if you push on the swaybar by the link it will give a little. i tipicaly hear the raddle durring hard acceleration, turning under acceleration and over bumps at any speed.

Could be a few things, struts (considering they are long past their lifespan) or your sway bar end links as suggested. Only way to know if to look. Those are the normal culprits.

Wouldn't hurt to change out those end links anyway.
