    Poor Mercedes...

    This part isn't sold separately, you need the whole steering kit : http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXTKN2&P=7 (part 4945).

    Maybe the broken part doesn't move as fast as the similar part of the other side because of bushings vs bearings, and it creates stress ?
    You can buy these BB to replace the bushings : http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXHFS5&P=ML.

    I've never had problems with the stock steering system (+BB aforementioned)

    And maybe stop driving near 1:1 cars haha !

    You can go to this site and down load exploded views of just about everything on the truck. Makes it easier at rebuild time.
