I jacked the font end and removed the monster tires and took some more pictures. I can visually see some things wrong, but I don't know what they are called. If anyone knows the parts I need it would be helpful. There is that rod that broke, some cracked and missing rubber/plastic washers, and a bracket on the bottom near the wheel is cracked.

I would appreciate any thoughts or knows on what these items that are in the photos below - especially the broken ones

These are of the rod that broke, and both ends it's connected to.

That is part of the drag link that is coming out of the steering rack. The best solution here is more than likely to replace the whole steering rack

When comparing the two, it seems a washer or something is missing on the passenger side allowing me to move it up and down. Do you know what this part would be, or the washer or if it's supposed to move?

This is what the drivers side one looks like

You have some excessive wear going on with this cart. That entire passenger side spindle has a lot of wear at the top (and more than likely hollowed out where the king pin slides through) which is causing the slop you're seeing as well as a lot of alignment issues

When I searched for the drag link, I found on a site the exact piece I need. The part in that photo you mention drag link, is called an "Inner Steering Rack Joint."

That isn't broken from the gearbox, just from the part that screws into the passenger side tie rod. I imagine ordering that part and putting it on attaching back to the tie rod would fix it. Would this sound right to you? Perhaps my photo made it look like it was broke in the gearbox
This is the link for the part:

Inner Steering Rack Joint


I also will order new bushings and washers, clevis and whatever else I see tomorrow. I've learned a ton since yesterday searching online, breaking the cart down and reading part descriptions.

Ok, you're in good shape. I thought both ends of that had sheared off. You should be good with just replacing that inner joint

One thing to look for while the front end is apart. The back side of the delta tower (where steering box is attached) tends to twist if the cart took an impact in the front end. This being bent can cause alignment and other steering issues

Awesome, I'll take a look at that tomorrow. I found out my cart is a remanufactured cart from a 2003 silver standard. Do those parts all look to be pre 2004 to you? The one that I think might now be would be the spindle because there is that extra hole. But I am wanting to order parts but don't want to grab the wrong year since 03 and 04 are different.

Thanks for all the heads up!

Look at the dust caps on the front hubs. If they're a black plastic, it has the 2003.5 and newer front end. If they're a silver metal cap, it has the 2003 and older front end
