hey, im new to this forum, just need some help with the problem i have run into.
i have a 03 ram 1500 5.7, 22 thousand k on it.
yesterday i was driving with about 2k left till home and my tie rod snapped, complete catastrophic failure, i have pictures that i will post once i figure this website out lol. but my question is what can i do about it? as in contacting a dealer or supplier? i have a 2 year old that was in the truck with me. thank god i wasnt on the highway because it could have caused much more problems then im experiencing.
i didnt hit a curb or anything like that, i drive fairly Conservative, no offroading and i keep up with regular maintenance. just wondering why its even possible for this to occur, and what i can do going forward. any help is much appreciated, thanks.
edit: heres some pictures
