tie-rod ends..... when you say "clciking" you mean when you hit a bump or when you turn?

Just when I hit a bump...but it stops clicking as fast as I brake a little... [confused]

You can put your hand on the tie rod end and have someone slightly turn the wheel back and forth, you'll feel the play, though you'll a need new outer tie rod end, the other boot is a bellow boot. you need an alligment after that too

but do I have to replace the whole tie rod end? or just the boot? [confused]

The outter tie rod end connects to the spindle and the inner connects to the rack. So there is an inner and an outer on both sides, replace them if there bad
