Correct name for rear tie rod?

Rear passenger side it looks like a tie rod maybe a little smaller. It comes off just like a tie rod but when I called auto parts stores around me they did not know what I was talking about. Does anybody know the correct name?

Probably stabilizer bar (sway bar) link.

went to dealership and they said it's called a link (sounds pretty generic) but he brought up a pic and that was it. I also get the arm that is connected to it.

both links are broke on my son's 97 escort. is it safe to drive until it is fixed? is it as simple of a fix as it appears?

It can be driven but they handle poorly. They are easy to replace.

I just purchased the links and intend on replacing them today. Do I need an alignment after replacing?

You don't need an alignment.
