ok so i just was snow blinded a couple days ago, and really nailed some rocks. bent the crap out of my trailing arm, and another rod. we fixed the trailing arm by bending it back and wielding on another supporting piece of metal. not the best fix but w/e thats why we have a 1996.
anyway, down to the point. there are 3 rods from inside the snowmobile that connect to the ski. one controls the steering, one controls the distance from the body to the sled and another one controls the angle of the ski, keeping it from turning on its side and staying upright on the runner.
what is this last rod i mentioned actually named?

not sure if that link will work or not.
in the picture, its the rod on the very bottom that goes from near the middle of the bottom, to the ski.

The steering part is called a tie rod and the other two are upper and lower radius rods. Make sure you get parts from the correct type of suspension.
