it would be nice if it just came with the control arm.

The 05 RLCAs are the same as 00-04. I've even seen an 08 with the same RLCAs so I'm assuming that they are the same all the way up to 2011... Most, if not all, aftermarket RLCAs are already reinforced just like the SVT. The 08 that I saw (at a junk yard) even had reinforced RLCAs and it didn't even have a sway bar.
