Tie rods, you can at least drive it. The tranny flush can wait, and is cheaper to do yourself if you are going that route

Most just unhook the lines to your tranny cooler and turn your truck on, they use the pump in the tranny to run new fluid into it. At least that's what I have seen

They do, most places, but there isn't a special tool or anything to do it. Make sure to ask though. And what STL said.
