Front Wheel Bearing & Steering Knuckle Destroyed

The front right (passenger side) bearing and steering knuckle assembly were destroyed this weekend. My boys and I took a trip to the hills of WV with our Rhino 450 and heard some screechy sounds, but couldn't find the source. When I noticed that the front right wheel was no longer vertical, I looked a little closer and discovered the bearing was very loose. By the time we got it back to camp, it was clear the bearing had completely come apart.

Where can I find a replacement assembly? Used is fine. I need the knuckle (with or without the ball joints) as well as the hub and bearing so I can slide it back on to the splined shaft and get back into operation.

Also, this Rhino is only 3 years old. Is it common to have problems like this?

I really appreciate your help!
