Crown Steering upgrade; part failed almost immediatly

I bought the Crown upgrade because it had the stock geometry, was stronger and easily fixable, it turned out to be easily fixable more than strong, I had a total of 174 miles on it when this happened. . . . .

In all I dont think Crown has bad products, I think I just got a bad part, this happened after a 110 mile drive, 5 minutes after getting off the road, it could have been catastrophic, thankfully it wasnt, if you run the Crown setup I guess its a good idea to check the sleeve for cracks and wear for the first few hundred miles.
