Default bagged 98 frontier control arm question

So I just bought a 98 frontier thats bagged.....lays out on 18s all day long on stock arms. I plan on going through and replacing any wornout suspension and steering parts and possibly replaceing the bushing with urethane ones.

Where my real question lays is here. I don't ever plan on modding or cutting the inner fender wells or moving anything else under the hood to make room for 20s. With that said is there any benefit to me replacing the stock arms with aftermarket arms? Other than tubular would look so much better than those basic ass stock arms.

If so which arms should I get? And what makes you really think I need to spend my money one em over just keeping these stockboys which appear to be working just fine.

N just in case your curios the truck isn't boddied and just lays frame.

Have you checked if it has drop spindles?
And more then likely unless you have really bad camber then I wouldnt see the need for control arms.

If you’re fine with the tire size you have now. If there is no abnormal tire wear. If there are no signs of damage on the control arm. Rock with what you have
