I'd imagine you'd feel the steering box more than the control arms. I'd say do the steering first and then do the control arms when it's time to replace the bushings or ball joints.

I would hold off on the box, and replace the rest of the front end at the same time. Without replacing the worn tie-rods, centerlink & idler arm, you're only going to gain half of what you could. Do all that together though, and it will literally feel like a brand new car. That's just my .02 though. Not sure if that is even an option for you right now.

I would say you cant go wrong either way. Both the arms, and the box will make a dramatic difference in how the car feels.
