Front End Clunking

I searched around and found a couple useful links as to what this might be, but they didn't give any descriptions. Something in my suspension is going and I'd rather fix it now, when it's still above freezing (barely). When I drive over any sort of bump in the road or when I pull into a driveway etc, my front end makes a sound that's sort of like metal on metal, hard to describe. From what I searched, I saw that there was the possibility of both my sway bar and my bushings. I laid next to the car and had my brother push down on the front end to hear where it was coming from and it seemed to be coming from right under the front sub frame. If the sway bar is not centered anymore, how would I go about a) seeing that, and b) re-centering it. Any other ideas on what it could be would also be useful. Thanks!
