Default Clunking in right front

I've been searching for this issue for a while and finally discovered there is significant play between the right tie rod and to whatever it connects to when it disappears into the rubber bellows on the steering gear.

This definitely needs to be repaired as the play is considerable. Is this a servicable item for a home mechanic? Must the steering gear be removed to enable replacement or repair of the problem in question? I have the downloaded pdf service manual and a quick glance through it hasen't revealed much so far - perhaps it will as I progress farther into it.

If there are those who could give some guidance it would be appreciated. This is my only transportation.
