200k suspension recommendations

Hi all, I am nearing the 200 k service and deciding what all to do. I've got a small front end suspension clunk. It's barely anything honestly but I'm proactive on things. I'm sitting on the original hubs and lower control arms but I can't tell anything is loose from visual and hands on inspection. Maybe it takes more force to induce? Thinking about just replacing the hubs and LCA. What would you do?

If you're interested, I'll give you my 2 cents worth. I am pretty proactive also, but I won't replace parts just to replace parts, unless they're obviously bad or it's something that could leave me stranded somewhere. It's pretty easy to tell the condition of suspension components, not so much on some of the other stuff. Most of the front/rear suspension components can be re-bushed and/or new ball joints/tie rod ends installed, and the hubs usually give you fair warning before there is a big problem. With 200K on yours, if it hasn't had previous suspension work done on it, you've certainly gotten your $$$$ worth and very likely may be due a fair amount of work. My Jeep required a fair amount of work at around 100K but my 300C SRT8 had 164K on it with no suspension work ever being done. At that point, it needed almost everything though, except the stock shocks/struts are still pretty good. Sure makes a difference with all new stuff though.

So far I've only put on sway bar bushings, shocks and end links. I can't feel any obvious issues either with a hands on inspection. Thinking of just replacing upper and lower control arms and hubs or just wait until an obvious failure(what I usually do).
