Looking for a part on the rear suspension of a sportsman 800.

I included a picture but I’m looking for the name of a part that looks to be a part of the suspension. It has been broken for awhile but it doesn’t seem to drive any different because of it. Is it vital that I replace this soon? And what is the name of it so I can order a new one?

Numbers 7, 8 and 9. Your bolt number 7 is broke off in the link and you've lost the rubber bushings and washers 8 and 9.
Here's two whole linkages for $18
