Moog control arms question

Passenger side control arm (ball joint) has a small crack in it and its causing steering wheel to shake at hwy speeds. Thought it was brake judder,so replaced pads and rotors...fixed the brake pedal vibration.
So, was thinking about replacing bothlower control arms to moog. Since it's an ls with fe5 shocks, tein s tech springs, and moog boots/bellows with spring seaters with moog strut mounts to handle the more aggressive suspension components. Good idea?

I couldn't find any Moog lower control arms for mine. Ended up getting the Detroit Axle lower control arms instead. So far, they're holding up. I had the rear bushing on the left going bad. It basically fell out as soon as I removed the control arm. Definitely get an alignment ASAFP after you change the lower control arms.
