Nothing is broken,just bent.Go to the front of the mower.Get low.In between the front wheels you will see a bar,or rod.It looks like a tie rod on a car.That bar should be bent slightly but when you hit something with the front tier it gets bent too much.One end of the bar screws in and the other nd is on a clip or pin.Remove one side,which ever is easiest for you.Then just bend the bar back to almost straight.You may have to do this several times to get the turning radius back to normal.

I seem to have play in my front suspention leg what can i do ? Ibumped the wheel and dented it when i skidded in the snow do you think this could be the cause? thanks

It is out of alignment and has a bent steering rod and the rim is bent and out of round so it will need a connecting rod or tie rod end. they rim may not be able to be straightened ,so expect to have to replace it but don't know for sure. would have to see if. Most likely has a bent cross link it does not take much to bend them. so will need wheel alignment and wheel balance at a minimum.

Cub cadet LTX 1045 steering problem......... Only 10 hours on a new tractor. Steering became gradually harder to turn wheels. Now when steering wheel is turned left, both wheels point in toward the center.

Probably a bent "drag link". See your owner's manual about checking for damage adjusting the steering. For the LTX 1045, it is "Maintenance Section 6", Page 22. If it is bent, repair or replace as mowerman1857 indicated.

You should also lubricate at the two grease fittings (per side) shown on Page 20 -Lubrication - "with a #2 weight Multi-purpose grease". It may have been skipped at the factory or may have been stored at high temperature before you got it, and dried out. (Text in quotes are from the manual)

Won't turn right

Had this on my riding mower. The steering rod going to the wheels from the steering assembly was bent. Take it off and straighten it and re-install.

Look under the front between the wheels at the tie rod that connects the two wheels. It is probably bent up and should be straight. If it's bent, remove it a straighten it.

Front wheels on craftsman lawn tractor are in two different directions after hitting fence. The one that hit the fence is in a 45 degree angle and the other is straight, how can I realign these.

It depends on if you just bent the tie rod (the rod that goes between the wheels) or if you bent the spindle on the wheel that hit. Look under the front and see if the tie rod is straight. If not, take it off and straightened it. If it is straight, you probably bent the wheel spindle. But also check the axle on the end that hit to see if it is twisted.

Steering wheel on rider mower is straight and wheels both point

You need to take the bent tie rod off and straighten it out and put it back on. Look carefully at the engine pulley ("wheel"). Make sure it is not bent. By bent I mean the bottom is not pushed up. The pulley should form a 'V'

Front wheels not aligned

it sounds like your drag link is bent.look under the front.the rod connecting the two tires should be straight.if not,straighten it and slide a slightly larger piece of galvanized pipe over the rod to stop it from bending again
