Tie Rod replacement

Had my truck fixed and the mechanic person says that I need a new tie rod. I went on this forum and found some info but not exactly what I need. My question is do I replace the ends only or is there more to replace. The mechanic says that he can tighten the rod but one bump will knock it out. Any ideas? Thanks

There is no way you would need a new one unless it was bent or the ends were hopelessly rusted in place (and the joints needed replacing). Its not exactly and expensive part, but the wheels need aligning after its replaced.
