Tie Rod Question for W202 99 C230 Kompressor

I have a damaged left Tie Rod. The dealer says I have to change the piece from de left ball joint (or tie rod end) to the right ball joint, not only the piece I have broken. Can I change only the rod that is broken? How?
I have attached a picture of the piece Iīm talking about where the circle is where the damage is

Thanks a lot for your help

The W202 chassis tie rod comes only with the drag link assembly......You can get the end for the tie rod but NOT the tie rod.

I guess in the car there is two tie rods and two drag links assembly, that woul mean that I donīt need to buy the whole piece from one wheel to the other one?

See here ; ; #56 is the drag link which comes as one part except the tie rod ends #59 which are attached at each end.

It is one piece and comes with new tie rod ends on it also. I got mine from and it arrived very carefully packed. It was made in Italy, I forget the brand but it worked out fine. And of course you can get one from this site also. I think on this site they call it a "Tie Rod Assembly" even though usually it is called Center Link or Drag Link.
