Return your new track rod and order a lukes link from the web. Less costly and rebuildable, if you plan to keep your truck for awhile, it'll pay for itself over and over again. A spreader fork and a 32 ounce hammer are required to remove the old track rod, do not beat on the part where the nut and cotter pin are located. bad move. Dont become discouraged, they will separate, a torch helps . the passenger side end is easy, merely unscrew the bolt, the nut has a handle on it, needs no wrench, if you have an impact, a rechareable one will do, in all likelihood.
