Tie rods

I just noticed my Tie rod on the left front is bent. Should I just replace the tie rod, or replace the ball joints as well. The ball joints on it are in good shape. It just the tie rod bent. Any suggestions will be helpful!

The ball joints as you call it, are what I refer to as tie-rod ends. I'm not so sure we can even replace our ball joints with out ordering a-arms...? When I bent a tie rod, I was contemplating over going back oem or after market. And was talked into going oem, so I could keep the weak link so to say.
