You missed the 10.00 bucks a foot on the tube because you've haven't yet realized that .120 isn't thick enough for steering. That means you will have to sleeve it with at least 1" x .188 wall in Dom or .120 in chrome moly. That doubles the price.
3/4-16 isn't typically robust enough for a tie rod. I only use 7/8-14 rod ends with 3/4" balls because the larger shanks increase the bearing surface area around the ball and make them last much longer, or long enough that we've never worn them out. On the other hand, we can take out the smaller ones in a couple of trips.
Those prices look like Midwest Control stuff. Were I you, I'd order one and check the fit and quality before I invested in the whole mess.
As far as 9 bucks for a 3/4" rod end? Try one before you buy the rest because I'll bet a fair bit they have the tolerances of a tractor link.
