Lower Control Arms Infiniti FX35

I just replaced the front bearings on this vehicle. They were obviously beyond the manufacturers specification at 170k. The bearings where so bad\loud on this car it was drowning out other noises.

My other biggest concern is the the front ball joints. I'm waiting for the rest of the pieces from strut to come in the mail. I figure now would be a good time to replacement and I only do one wheel alignment.

My question is do I replace the control arms as a general principle? Not sure if I want to play a cat and mouse game guessing when\if they are bad. Any suggestion would be helpful because I'm not a pro-merchanic.

My question is do I replace the control arms as a general principle? ??? why? replace ball joint, if it's bad. likely, but not nereccessily.

no one does one wheel alignment. geometry is between all four.

I'm not a pro-mechanic.
maybe not mess with this then? Henry Ford said "if you think you can, or you think you can not, you are probably right."
