Thats not too bad, as long as your ball joints dont wear out you should be fine. When my now parts Snapper was still used to mow with, the front tie rod had ball joints which wore out and the entire tie rod fell off! Not saying that will happen but still, they arent made like car ball joints.

Heim ends or whatever would be the best though. I plan on upgrading to them ASAP but they are expensive as all hell. Heres a link to a full set though if you need it.

When mine broke my tires went in two different directions so it didnt go anywhere lol. Ended up leaving it sit outside for a night until I got some bolts and a good drill bit to bore out the sockets for bolts. Never had a problem until the hydro went.

Those are what T-man is using for his mower build. 1/2" inner diameter I believe so they will be nice and solid for your direct steering. I need to buy 2 sets for both of my tractors, not too excited about that lol.
