It would really be nice if we had parts pictures so we could all be on the same wavelength when talking about suspensions. So much different terminology.
I think you are talking about tierods and/or idler arm bushings. The problem with tie rods are they have tapered ends and require some manner of tools or technique to get apart (puller, pickle fork, hammer technique,etc.). The idler arm can be done with simple tools and technique.
