These guys had a broken tie rod:


I assume 99.9% of people aren't going to attempt replacing a tie rod or broken CV on the trail and it's not worth the effort to bring spare parts for that.

This video shows how to do it on a different vehicle, and it would be a major pain:


I think I would rather just pay $1000 to get towed out or whatever.

I once had to replace a camshaft in a 350 Chevy in the middle of the Mojave desert in my old K5 Blazer back in about 1984...馃槑

So my questions are:

  • are bringing tire sidewall repair kits worthwhile? I don't think so personally
  • how about bringing a tie rod sleeve? Perhaps
  • bringing a spare outer tie rod? Perhaps. I certainly won't attempt an inner tie rod replacement myself on a trail
