Welcome to the Forum!

Yes. All the tie rod ends are available, as are some of the internals to the steering box.
Have you tried to narrow down the source of the play? What about tightening up the steering box adjustment?
Click the link below to "Hamilton Bobs Cubs", loads of parts there.

Yea, chances are that all the tie rod ends and drag link ends are shot. Pretty common and yes, they're available from any Cub Cadet dealer. Also, check the center pivot pin for the front axle, it's know to wear. Also, check the wheel bearings in the front end, along with the spindles. The combination of a little bit of plan in a few of these areas can make the steering feel very sloppy.
