Tie rods are cheap.
Get the ones you need, get a tie rod puller( I use a bfh and they pop right out), MARK the exact location of the tie rod and remove it, screw the new one on to the mark you made and use an impact gun to put the tie rod back in place, if you do it by hand, make sure you use a breaker bar and the tie rod all the way in. Most take a castle nut and a cotter pin to secure them and if it's not in all the way, you will not be able to install the cotter pin(and the wheel may fall off while driving).
The clunking sound you hear sounds like the track bar thoe, get a 15mm and make sure it's REALLY tight.
