Ok. So I'm not so young and thought I cleared the curb last night but caught the right front tire on the curb edge.

Now the front end goofy like me

While both wheels turn to go straight both are pointed outward, a lot .

Can you bend the spindle? Or did I tear / bow something? It looked normal under the tractor. But ive really never looked at it.

It's a 99 lt1000.

Any suggestions to look at first?

Thanks

you probably bent the tie rod, (the rod that connects the two front wheels), it connects to the spindles with cotter pins, take it off and straighten it in a vice, hammer, big pipe, etc, a new one only costs about $12, my niece bent mine twice.

Thanks so much! You were right. It took me a while and a big hammer to even get it out of the tractor cause it was bent so bad, but all is good, actually better now!
