Default loose sounding front end

Hi, I am a new owner of a used 97 crv with 94,000. My only problem is while driving slowly over gravel or small bumps, the front end sounds loose. It sounds like a worn bushing(i guess), because normal speed driving over most surfaces there is no unusual sound at all. I wanted an owners opinion before I take it to a shop. Thanks

Put on your gloves, and jack it up a bit, taking about 75% weight off the wheel, then try jerking it left-right, up-down by grabbing ahold at the tread area. Then move the jack and do the other side.

If that doesn't narrow it down, it could be the sway bar links, which are sealed, but replacable.
