Need some heim joint assistance

I have a 2004 Jeep TJ Rock Crawler that I need some assistance with. I have a Heim joint that needs to be replaced, I was told that it was 3/4, I also need new shocks on the front. I looked up the number of the shock and it comes back to rough country but there are no markings on anything.
Here are my issues:
1. My steering is loose
2. my tires are tilted in and the tread is wearing on the inside
3. nothing has markings or numbers so I am not sure where the parts came from.
4. My steering wheel needs to be turned but I dont have any room for adjustment on my bars.

I am new to this type of vehicle so any advice would be appreciated. I am uploading a couple of pics but if something else is needed please let me know.

As far as the heims go, they just wear out occasionally, it is something you have to live with if you are running them. I replaced the heims on my track bar yesterday. There may be better ones out there, but ive been using ruff stuff heims on my jeep. Link here. The size will generally refer to the diameter of the threads. If you have any measuring calipers, thats the easy way, but you can probably measure them with a tape measure. Check the Thread diameter and when you take it off measure the size of the hole where the bolt goes. Call Ruff Stuff and he could be able to fix you up.

You need to figure out what size lift you have, if any lift. You dont have to replace with the exact shocks, you can buy alot of different brands based on your lift size.
