88 560sl Tie rod assembly??

Well, I'm not dead which is a good thing because I was driving back and forth to work on a bad tie rod 90mph everyday. It was making some nasty noises and I had all kinds of play in the steering. My mech told me just now that I am about 10 miles from doom. I'm trying to figure out which tie rod assembly to buy. The link below shows a couple choices. One say left and right and one says center. I did'nt know I had options. My mech told me I need a center link, pitman arm and tie rods? Any help would be vastly appreciated. Thanks!

Speak to Phil at Fastlane ask for genuine MB tie rods and centerlink. Needing a pitman arm would be weird because their is nothing to wear on it. Perhaps he means an idler arm. Genuine MB cost more but there is a difference.
