Time for front end work?

Got a 07 5 speed focus wagon with just over 200k (120,000 miles) ..original front suspension except for for sway bar links. Not bad, no bounce or leaks but it is getting looser - it still passes MV inspection easily.

Sway bar links are Moog (NASCAR brand- Crappy Tire) - sealed (non-greasable) these only lasted a year and a half. Garbage but lifetime warranty.

What should I replace? struts, mounts, tie rod ends, lower control arm bushings? Just want to be proactive. Love the car.

I recall doing something like this with my old Escort wagon around this time.

Any thoughts appreciated. Monroes ok?
