I'm thinking remove the sway bar link, remove and replace outer and inner tie rods, remove and replace the control arm, remove and replace the strut, then install the new sway bar link. Any corrections to that order or other suggestions?
That will work well.

Only suggestion I can make is that I got the small, cheap "2-ton compact trolley jack" from Harbor Freight for adjustable support under the ball joint / knuckle . You wouldn't want to lift a car with that thing, but to easily manage these assemblies while your hands are elsewhere, its great.

Oh. And be really careful with the speed sensor wiring that attaches to the strut. I don't know how I broke mine doing this job, but its apparently very delicate.

Already broke one of mine last month when replacing the wheel bearings. They are definitely fragile.
