i hit a "little" (hahaha) rock and broke mine exactly the same way as the pic. didnt think about the warranty but will do next time. i replaced it with stock because....if i would have had a gear one i dont think it would have broken. then something would have been bent and who knows what that would have been. sure a tie rod is cheap but what if it was an a arm or spindle or wheel??? you have to have a weak link somewhere, i guess you have to decide what you want it to be.
