Default 2000 Rear Tie Rod / Suspension Link / Help?

Hey everyone,

I've been doing a bit of research and I've been struggling to find the final answer I'm looking for.

I have a 2000 Chevy Corvette with about 65k miles on it that I managed to take off the road about a month back

I managed to slightly bend the rim near the valve stem and had to find a replacement since GM no longer makes them, and since I drove the car about 30 miles after taking it off the road, I went ahead and replace both rear tires (only one actually needed it, but might as well get them in a pair).

When I took it down to the local dealership to have the alignment done - they guy working on it was a real bro and brought me back to see a few things I need to look at having replaced. (Which also meant that the alignment couldn't quite be fixed).

I took some pictures, which should be attached.

What I'm wondering: the actual name/part number for the tie rod that is bent (I took a picture of both sides and it looks like only the driver side needs replace) Same question with the stabilizer links!

What are the odds that the (inner)? tie rod needs to be replaced too? Or, that the piece it fits to on the knuckle is bent as well and will need to be replaced at some point? Also, (sorry for all the questions) the sway bar that the link is attached to?

Thanks for any advice!!

Sorry to hear about your off road adventure in the car. And good luck getting it repaired. I am going to move this thread over to the C5 Tech section for some answers to your questions.

Looks like you need an inner tie rod end which is identified above. I'd also replace those crappy plastic sway bar end links. They look pretty beat.
