You can change the inner ball joint hoever it is the biggest PITA. Its really worth it to just buy a new arm unless you want the dealer to do it in which case it would cost a lot of money. I believe the tie rod is the same as the ball joint so you should be able to change both.

I saw those for sale on websites..... what has me is why on earth would a sane rational thinking human being .... who is not some millionaire and i mean the heir or heiress type... not someone who worked hard for their millions........ would buy gold plated suspension... the part of your car that takes the most abuse and is changed most frequently.
