      You might be able to eliminate the noise just by lubricating the sway bar links. If the aftermarket ones have grease fittings, 'articulate' (twist) them before & after greasing them to work the grease in.

      If you buy buy a grease gun, get a needle attachment for it as well. That allows you to lubricate the lower ball joints and ALL the OE end links that don't have grease fittings.

      Grease gun (~$10 USD)

      Extension flex hose ($4)

      (Combo ~ $15)

      Needle ($4)

      Yes, they can cause all manner of creaking / groaning / clunking noises.
      They are not expensive so replace all four as it may not be the crusty one causing the noise.

      When I bought my 2007 CRV in 2018, it had that clunk going over bumps.
      When I went in for an NYS inspection, the mechanic told me to replace the sway bar link
      Replaced them myself and the clunk was gone. So, yes, it can definitely be the sway bar link.
      Thank you very much! I will try greasing them first as 1 of them has a zerk fitting. If there are still noises ROckAuto has some pretty competitive pricing and a lot of options.

      Thank you for the links. Im curious about the needle and lower ball joint. Obviously I don't pierce through the boot, do I need to unbolt it from the lower control arm and slide the needle btwn the tappered boot and threaded part?
