    Obviously I'll need a new a-arm, but does this mean I need a new axle carrier as well?

    No you shouldn't need a new axle carrier as long as when you reinstall the pillow ball back into the carrier it still stays in place and doesn't fall out. From the pic it looks like you may be right on the edge since I see a bit of damage where it popped through.

    Gotcha. Guess I'll pick some up just to be safe. I'm going RPM for the arms; any recommendation for the carriers?

    I run the stock carrier with the optional aluminum pivot caps tra7033x. I never have a problem with them and they're cheap to replace a stock carrier over an aluminum one.

    Good deal! I'll check it and get on ordering.

    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    Yes that's all you'll need. If you want to do all four corners you'll need to buy two of those.
