the overhaul continues...question:

should I consider control arms & inner and outer tie rods since I'm at 120k miles?

oh & wheel bearings since they are so inexpensive?

Inner tie rods rarely wear out. 🤷🏼‍♂️
Check the inner tie rod boots to see their condition and if they're in great shape then just replace the outer tie rods.
If they're bad you can replace the boots with a boot kit without having to replace the entire inner set. If a boot is broken then replace the inners otherwise they last the life of the car with good boots.
Id suggest you also replace the lower ball joint as well while you're in there.

Control arms are a yes but don't cheap out with low priced knock offs.
If you're replacing bearings get the Timken or Moog bearings with the Timken being the first choice. They're the best in the industry and one of my go to's for anything bearing related.
