Also I was talking with a mechanic who recommended just to replace the whole control arms while I'm at it. He said to stick with stock, but I might check out one of the "HD" upgrades (Meyle or HPAShops). Any recommendations?

OE is okay, but liquid filled. HD Meyle is full rubber and will have a much longer service life.
