The rear tie rod seem to be only sold as a complete unit. Shop around
for prices. I bought mine from a non-dealer part store for $160.

If you want to install it yourself, it pretty easy. Just one bolt on each
end. Measure the old rod and adjust the new one to the same length.
This will be close enough, but get an alignment soon.
