I'm trying to find a replacement part for this. It still drives but it's very touchy scared to let my kids drive this. Any idea where I can get a replacement??

BMI karts has a wide selection of kart parts
...just gotta double check your specs (5/8" or 3/4" axle (diameter & length), barrel bore size etc.)

For example, here are the product specs. for the spindle linked below
  • Axle: 5/8" x 4-7/8"
  • Barrel Bore Size: 5/8" ID x 2-7/16" L
  • Tie Rod Bolt Hole Size: 5/16"

Watch out for fully welded spindles from BMI or anybody else. I got BMI's matching spindles set without thinking ahead, and found that just like in the pictures, they come with the arms welded on at 90-degree angles, no possible way to install them as is for correct Ackermann steering. Look at your own existing spindles to see the obtuse angle of them. BMI and others sell spindle kits where you can weld the arms on at any angle you need. See links below for the set that I bought mistakenly, and for the do-it-yourself kit..................
