Well, I call it a PCV valve hose. Some people call it a Oil Separator hose.

Did you do a front end allighnment after replacing your tie rod? It is possible that your toe-in is off and your tire is rubbing somewhere. CV joints as far as I know, don't make a rubbing sound. But I have seen some strange thing's before. CV joint's usually make a clicking sound, mostly when turning when they are bad. They also can make a clunking sound
