    I guess the pics pretty much show where it broke. I can't figure out what part(s) I need and how to fix it. It's a '79 Chevy

    It is called a rag joint. You can get aftermarket ones also.

    Check the frame around the steering box also as they are notorious for cracking. They make kits with 2 plates to weld on for added strength.

    Like said above while you were at it I would remove the box and check the mounting area for cracks to be on the safe side.
