You win.. Sorta...

I won't keep you all guessing.. It is a tie rod, for my Quad.

I swaped on heavy duty tie rod ends, and what happens? One breaks the first time out with them and causes me to crash. Sooo... that won't be happening again.

Here is it next to the stock one.

That it could. Granted I don't think the Quad will ever have a problem again. I'm sure that will be able to take everything the quad throws its way. Nice job.
