I think I need some help. I was riding at a park this past Sunday. The trails were kinda tight and my right front Mudzilla hooked on a hidden stump in the grass. It snatched my wheel hard to the right and I heard a slight pop.

Now my four wheeler is pulling like crazy to the right and the right front tire is facing outwards alot more. What all can be done to fix this? I saw that the tie rod had some adjustment on it...is there anything else that could have happened?

All the A-arms are alot bigger than the tirod. I would only think that maybe the threads stripped on the rod and may need to be replaced. This would be the only thing that would allow your tire to adjust. I would think you would see if a weld broke and it was out of wack ...?

OK...This may be a little worse than I thought. I spent about an hour trying to fix it this weekend with no luck. I pulled the tie rod completely off and adjusted lots of different ways. Still didnt help.

I top of the tire is leaning out farther than the bottom of the tire. No wheel bearings or ball joints are bad. Is it possible that my a-arm is bent?

I am probably going to take it into the dealership tomorrow. Should I put my stock tires back on so they dont try to void my warranty?

I would put the stockers back on before taking it in.

Hit a small stump just like you did. It broke the A arm and hub also broke the tie rod rod. So I would say you probably bent the A arm. Its good knowing the A arm breaks before the frame gets bent. Easy to fix.
GoodLuck
