Default Lower Control Arm - What Else?

2005 Accord.

Plan to replace the LCAs due to the compliance bushing. Seem's easier to replace the entire thing than take it out, get bushings pressed in, then install.

Is there anything else I should do? I am thinking to replace the Ball Joint Boot. Is this difficult on the car (installing the clip)? Can I replace the Ball Joint while on the car (will the Ball Joint C-Clamp Tool fit?).

Well, the book doesn't say that the knuckle has to come off to change the lower ball joint - so I'd have to say it can be pressed out/in without removing the knuckle

Thanks. I am just wondering if the axle will be in the way. I've seen some posts with pictures of an axle clip being in the way (with the axle off).
I'll probably just do a "pre-inspection" before I order parts.
