Clark C500-Y80:
My forklift has slack in steering

When I turn the steering wheel, I have to turn it about 1/4 a turn to get wheels to move. There is a part on the rear left side that looks to be a tie rod and it has slack in it. I am trying to find that part number to order it. Also, I was told this part could be greased to reduce the slack, is that accurate?
I have a picture but not sure where to upload it on here.
