I think it really depends on your dealer.

+1 on the dealer, up to them & Can Am, if it was trail related then most places won't cover it under the warranty

I have a set from All BAlls through Royal distributing. I carry a set with me for field failures. Fairly easy to change.

Because the front end, like any thing else needs a weak point and a tie rod is the easiest/cheapest part on the front end to replace. If you strengthen the tire rods up without improving upon anything else, you end up putting more stress on parts like the ball joints and steering stem in situations where the tie rods should be the break point.

I'd agree with jmm24 but canam seam to have really weak tie rods. I'd get stronger tie rods if mine bent, stock have many issues and problems.

I would rather replace a few tie rods than something else major, if they bend again I may rethink that but for now I'm good, thanks for all the good advice
