Do I need Adj track bar and offset ball joint?

Advice needed please!
I have a 2008 Rubicon (Stock). The front lower control arm recently broke at its wield and bent after hitting a speed bump at speed so I upgraded to Rustysoffroad stronger mounts. I took it to 4-Wheel Parts in Austin to get wielded on. When I picked it up I noticed they wielded the mounts under the axle whereas the original were wielded on top! Is this correct?
They also tell me that I need an adj track bar and adj lower offset ball joint and a steering stabilizer. Why do I need all these on a stock Jeep? Also I'm now getting really bad steering wobble at 50mph

First question I would be asking is why they didn't weld it back in the original location. A stock Jeep shouldn't need any modified parts. Also, if you have a shimmy at 50mph that you didn't have before the alignment may be off now. I would make them correct what they did. Just because it's 4-Wheel Parts doesn't mean they did it correctly.

And, FWIW, Don't let them sell you on the "bad steering stabilizer" crap. A bad SS does NOT cause wobbles in the steering. It has been documented and proven many times over.

If the 4WP location won't do right by you, go up the ladder.
