Depends on what you want to spend your money on. With the control arm you get two new bushings and a ball joint. The entire assembly can be replaced in a half hour but the car will have to be aligned. The bushings are available separately, but require a special tool and a lot more time to replace meaning more labor dollars. You'll have your old ball joint but no need for an alignment.
