going to try new sway bar links.. which?

so recently I notice a clunk when turning and braking and it was suggested by the mechanic at my job that it could be sway bar links. they're not too expensive and easy to install apparently, so i figure I'll try some. American Muscle has them for 15 bucks a pop, and generally good reviews, but a few bad ones.
what are some decent ones I can get just to weed out if this is what's in fact making the noise?

Are you lowered? If so, find someone who knows what they're doing (assuming you dont*) and install a good set of adjustables. I recommend whiteline personally.

I’ve used $15 endlinks on other cars, they’re like the oem junk. You won’t have to change the Steeda links. One and done. Bonus you have adjustability that may make your car feel better to you.

Something you don't want to hear but did you possibly blow a strut?

actually, i'm thinking its my brake now. i got my brakes done at this crap shop (i made a post of these idiots taking my car out after fixing my brakes to go get roy rogers and blasting music instead of listening to see if the problem was still there...) and i'm pretty sure it's the caliper they replaced that's making a noise. seems like as i'm braking, as i'm at low speed letting off the brake as i'm slowing down is when it makes it.

I lowered my 2012 about an inch and a quarter with Vogtland springs and Steeda struts. Next, I bought the end links when bought the Steeda sway bars so I installed the Steeda adjustable end links and front sway bar at the same time. I started by adjusting the end link to the same length as stock. So as usual I changed 2 things at once but it significantly improved handling. I had some trouble tightening the end links and keeping the bearings - studs aligned, so be careful because you can damage the endlinks if you don't hold the stud straight while tightening them. This was my last suspension mod so I took it to a real mechanic who adjusted the end links, and went over my installations. ] If you know what you are doing and are patient the installation instructions tell you how to adjust the endlinks and "preload" them.
