Top down or up, the same. Sway bar is tight. Should I start with rear track arms (look like tuning forks) or front motor mount?

Willing to do it all, but I prefer to start one component at a time....suggestions?
My noise is more like "clock, clock..." when driving through bumpy rough roads at under 45mph (no noise at highway speed). The Porsche indy stated it's the rear trailing arms but he said there is no safety urgency to replace them just annoying. I'm planning on replacing them next spring.
