A quick test for worn endlinks is to remove them and then drive on a straight road where you've heard the noise before. Of course, since that effectively deletes the swaybar too, it won't allow you to distinguish between the two components as your noise source, but if I had to choose between them, I would imagine that underbody corrosion on a 9-year old Focus would make endlinks easier to replace than swaybar bushings.
