Ariens rider steering problem

1st post...

I have an Ariens riding mower...46" with the Kohler 20HP engine. Model no. 93603900/A20K46YT. It has developed an issue that is beyond me.

Wife was mowing and said the mower would not turn. Sure enough it looked like something had been hit with 1 wheel as the tires were cambered out

badly. No visible damage but looked like either bent spindles or bent drag link arms. Bought new drag links...same problem. Bought new

spindles...wait for it- wait for it..same problem. There is no adjustment and the steering column has no missing teeth, is lined up centered on

the steering plate. There is no way to slide the pivot point of the steering plate.

Any ideas?

Sorry if this is in the wrong guy. Thanks for any help or guidance.

I just looked up a parts diagram on your tractor and the only other thing I can see that could affect the toe like that would be a bent front axle. Have you looked at that yet? It looks like a pretty straight forward setup, just like on mine.
