clunking in front end? need help!!!

i have this problem with my 97 TJ. theres is a horrible clunking sound coming from underneath and I checked it out. there is a lot of play in my drag link and tie rod. i can grab either of them and twist sort of recreating the sound when im driving on it quieter obviously. The clunk happens more at any speed under around 40 (probly cause i cant hear it otherwise). It happens driving straight or turning. dont know much about suspension and can really use some advice.

I am about to go on a trip down to the middle of california on the 13th and would like to know if i can make it there and back

i dont think it is the sway bar bushings or link bushings. i disconnected the sway bar and drove around still hearing the loud clunking.
