You do both links at once. No debate.

And there's room to grab the links to check for play without removing a wheel or jacking up the car.
Yeah there is room, but without getting the front up in the air the links will be loaded, and very hard to feel for subtle play, which can still clink and clunk.

I suggest jack the car from the rear pad enough to get a jackstand under the vacant front Jack pad.

Lower Jack gently and repeat process, on the other side.

Once both wheel are up it will be a lot easier to inspect and replace properly.
