Need parts

Well guys I found out after installing my exhaust some creeking noise coming from underneath the car.

The result:

- Tie rods need replacing

- Rear CV joints need replacing


No my question is does the entire rear shaft have to be replaced or is it just the joints. I heard that they are all one piece and cant be replaced individually ?

I need serious help here if anyone can steer me to maybe some beefier aftermarket stuff for the above mentioned that would be great.

Thanks

I changed all of them buddy last year. Did a complete over haul of the rear end. My mechanic showed me the movement. Its not a creek but more of a click each time i go over anything. Its coming front the from and rear. Just hoping anyone here has a parts store they can recommend me to for a good price. Maybe a beefire aftermarket part so i dont have these issues anymore
