My Ride: ESS TS2+ ZHP
Well, start by inspecting the parts that haven't been replaced.

Check the sway bar bushings for play. Check the strut mounts. Depending on mileage, could even be the struts. Double check to make sure the end links are properly torqued. Sometimes they may feel snug but it's just from the load of the suspension and while driving they will still move around. Make sure the front subframe bolts are snug. Check the engine mounts. Make sure the steering rack is secure.

I'd wager on strut mounts and struts but it could be any number of things.
