By experience, unscrew the nut on the center drag link until off, you may want to mark on the center link where the nut was (if not I hope you have access to an alignment rack); secondly remove cotter pin from top of bolt on the head of the tie rod and remove nut. With the next part you may want use a pry bar or hammer to get the head out. I caution using the hammer as the bolt head may mushroom an not allow you to remove the bolt.

How do you replace the rod bearings for Chevy tohoe 1999?

If you are talking about the crankshaft rod bearings, you can just remove the oil pan, and replace each crank bearing one at a time without actually removing the pistons. But to replace the piston pin rod bearings the pistons will have to be removed. IMO, if any of these bearings are worn bad enough to need replacing, then the engine needs a complete overhaul.
