i would do the entire control arm that way you can get the ball joints too.
Thanks snikwad, for your input on this matter. However, I am under the impression that poly bushings are far superiour to rubber, even Meyle HDs. As to the sway links, control arm, etc., what I really need to find out is how to diagnose these systems so I know what needs to be replaced. If I can keep some of my stock parts, it might open up my budget to get higher quality parts that I do have to replace. Thank you though, for your input.
