Loose tie rod and drag link

great weekend wheeling at katemcy and no driving issues just steering is a lil loose and i got under it to inspect and i have like 3 inches of turning capacity on tie rod and drag link bar ...no side to side play though. Only damage besides tearing rear DS boot so now i have an excuse to get a new rear as well... So what do i need to do to fix my front end ?

Is it turning on the threads or the ends? The ends are supposed to move some.

Thats pretty normal. If your tie rod is bent get used to it. It will happen every time you wheel probably. If its not bent too bad, all you have to do is reset your toe.
