Tie rod parts identification help needed

While doing a tire rotation and shocks on my 97 350 with mud tires i noticed on the LF wheel the out tie rod has a lot of play. I feel having 40 inch tires replacement is important.

I have been calling parts stores and they list left and right which does not make sense being the fact that the RF has no outer tie rod, that joint is connected to a long arm. They also give me the listings for cheap china crap that is 10-15 bucks or the expensive brand for 100-150.

My questions are what brand have you all had luck with? Does anyone have a part number? etc.

97 F350 XLT CC LB 4x4 7.3psd 5spd White/Tan
-Straight Piped
-6637 Intake
-8in. Lift
-Welds w/40in. Rockers
-Warn hubs
-LSD w/4.56 gears
-Leather bucket seats
-Rhino lined

This might help someone later. Inner and outer are the same part. Napa sells a TRW tie rod for 24 bucks. Part number ES-2615-R. Everywhere else has china junk for 15 bucks and expensive brand for 100. TRW makes most of the expensive brands.

Just went through this on my truck... replaced all the outer tie rod stuff. I went with Moog becuase of the free lifetime warranty replacement.

Moog DS 1071 Right outer- passenger side
Moog ES 3009R Left outer- driver side
Moog ES 2012S Adjustable clamp

Picked it all up online for under $200 with free shipping
