I noticed my right tire was pointed way out the other day. I looked and saw that the tie rod was bent pretty badly. I don't know when I did it. I can't remember hitting anything that hard. Does it take much to bend it? Is this a common thing? I straightened it out, reinstalled it, and realigned the tires. I know that it is never going to be as strong b/c it has been bent. I'll keep an eye on it and test it hard before I feel comfortable with it. If it doesn't hold up, I guess I'll have to buy a new 1. What do y'all think?
