You can just replace the ball joints with out doing the whole control arm. The price quoted is just 1 ball joint at a time i.e the lower ball joint on 1 side etc. I have done them and is is a very labor intensive job. One must relax and remove the springs. And then use a 20 ton press to press out each ball joint. It is kind of a dangerous job to do, actually.
