Be sure to always change / replace steering, suspension and brake components in complete sets or pairs. Both lower control arm, both inner and outer tie rod ends replaced at the same time, as example.

No reason to throw money at the problem and simply change parts. Need to diagnose the shaking issue; first question - were the front wheels realigned after the new parts were installed?

Were the front and rear tires balanced? There are many possibilities for shaking and vibration.

Try these on-line parts resources; www.autopartsanything.com; www.partsgeek.com; www.Rockauto.com - to list only a few.

In fact, they (RockAuto) list the replacement front lower control arm from around $26.00 each and the outer tie rod end from around $10.90 each for your vehiucle.
