Tie rod removal

I bent my passenger side Tie rod, so how hard is it to remove and how much for a new one approximately? Thanks in advance.

ok. What do I need the air chisel for? and did you mean a pickle fork? once I get the tie rod end off the rod, do I just unscrew the rod or is there a lock nut I gotta loosen on the inside end?
