E46 control arms. Bushings failed, are ball joints ok?

Steering wheel shakes like crazy, loose feel in the wheel, i know the bushings are shot but how do the ball joints (actual arm) look? Thanks so much for help. I dont want to buy any unnecessary parts i have the fcabs, tie rods, and sway end links.

Thanks guys here is a video of the control arm
