You dont just go to the local parts house say I need a tie rod end for my blankity blankin jeep. Go home install. As for alignment I do it by counting the thread turns. But it looks like it may be a bit late for that. So I would use a tape measure to get it close. Make sure there no other worn steering parts. Then go get it aligned cause tire are very expensive.
Here are some parts stores out here
