Never Never change out suspension parts only on one side. Change out both sides, and get new bushings also.

You can do one side to save now, but be assured that if one has failed, the other is on it's way. It's just better to change both at the same time unless you damaged it by hitting a curb or something else.

Replace your control arms (and your bushings as well).
