steering rack and tie rod problem

today I went to have a alignment service in my ex-mechanic-shop so after few hours they come to my work place telling me that I have a steering rack problem and the tie rodes are mess up and the steering rack and inner tie rod are one piece which my friend( genius who does all the work on my car now) is suspecting that he said that steering rack is separated part its called the ties rod assembly and you can change those without changing the steering rack. the shop estimation is around 1100$. however my friend estimate all the job around 300 t0 400$ knowing that it is possible to get cheap tie rodes ( min 30 each-max bmw 120$) so what u guys think?
