You will need to use a large pipe wrench to hold the shaft connected to the inner tie rod joint. Once you are holding with a pipe wrench then you can use a second large wrench to loosen the lock nut for outside tie rod joint that broke. Once nut is broke loose then you can spin off the broken piece and install a new one and get an alignment. If you continue to have issues getting it loose then have a mechanic like one from YourMechanic come to do the work for you.
