Default thats f'ed up

ive been having a problem with my steering lately and its been pretty loose and i couldnt figure out the problem. so i went wheelin this weekend and i was going through one of the trails we were at and all of a sudden i heard a pop, and my tire collapsed to the ground. my upper ball joint had broke, causing my lower to bend and break, causing my brake hose to brake, causing my cv shaft to pull out of my diff. so i had to replace all the bad stuff and put her all back together. it took about 5 hours to do everything out in the middle of the woods. now all i need is an alignment!

wait... you knew your steering was not right, yet you went wheeling anyway.
If anything feels "not right" on your truck, you should have checked it out before driving it on the road. let alone taking it off road.
If those items had broken if you were on the highway doing 65, there would have been an accident.
