No it is not normal for the tie rods to break frequently. It is common for them to wear out early and if you replace them with cheap units they may fail again soon. I suggest that you spend the money and take it to a garage that specializes in front end work and have them install quality parts. I like Moog or Napa's best parts. I just did my front tie rods on my 1996 and had them install Moog parts, the Moog parts cost 2x as much as the cheap parts yet will last at least 2x as long. I only replaced the outer tie rod ends this time, did the inner tie rods 2 years ago. The outer tie rods (Moog) were $35 each side, Cheap ones were less then $20
