    The item that attaches to the hub bearing housing is known as a track rod end.

    Who told you that you had a crack in it? surely if they can spot a crack they can identify a part on your behalf?

    from your steering rack you have your track rod on the end of which is your track rod end (although audi refer to it as tie rod and tie rod end..), this track rod end connects to your wheel bearing housing.

    I think you should have another chat with whoever spotted it and told you.
