Yes, there was a small rattle in the front end. I've been driving VERY cautiously since I first heard the rattle, thought it was the suspension. looks like waiting til the weekend was too long of a wait! Seriously though, it's amazing that such a small looking joint holds these wheels in sync. I might have to design then have someone build something different to use..

How long did you hear the noise?

You are the first person I know of that has had the outer tie rod break apart. From your ID info, it appears your car is still under warranty. Any other mods? Knowing how squirrelly some dealers are, I can just image them trying to blame it on your drilled rotors

I have a 2007 300c w/21k miles. I have been experiencing the vibration on the left front wheel after alignment and 2 full wheel balancing sessions(second time for new tires). The car is pulling left, as is common for these cars. When breaking at speeds of 60-80mph (for traffic cams) i get the vibration normaly associated with a wheel in balancing... as previosly stated, 2 balancing sessions later... same sh*t different tires.

SO, could you please post all of the symptoms associated with tie rod failure? I want get the car up to par before the rod is on the floor...

There was no vibration in my case. You may want to check that your rotors are not warped. I had to grab these drilled rotors at 100 000km because my other ones were warped. The vibration was subtle but very freakin annoying.
For the tie rod end, it was just a slight rattle that was present, it seemed just like when the suspension was going in my previous car so I figured thats what it was. There was nothing else that could lead me to beleive otherwise until it failed. No handling issues, no vibration, everything felt the same. Hope all works out for you. I'm going to call the dealership and see what they say about this issue.

Thanks, I find it disturbing that the OE one isn't greasable too. I design trucks and every moving component/assembly that I design has grease nipples added to it, so I'm used to seeing it, freaked me out when I didn't see them on the tie rod ends. I called Napa down here and they quoted me $140 PER SIDE. I verified that it was only for the tie rod end and they confirmed, I hung up. I hope that nobody has to go through what I went through, this literally could've been deadly if it failed 10 minutes prior to when it did.

$140 per side? I wonder if they were quoting the outer and inner tie rod ends? I wouldn't think there would be that much difference between the U.S. and Canada. The Napa store I work at sells it for $57.19. It's a couple bucks cheaper online:
