I would very pleased if thats all my car failed on.The track rod end is connected from your steering to your front wheel hubs and when you turn you steering from side to side it turns the car and you can also set your tracking from there hope this helps
It was probely the rubber bush on the track rod end that was damaged that failed you
Sorry Donald but the are no rubber bushes on the trackrod end, there is a rubber grease seal but they do not split very often.
The track rod end is a steel ball and socket this is where the wear usually takes place.
