Tie rods and other steering problems...

I trying to get the steering in this beast tightened up. I have replaced all of the tie rod ends except for the passenger side. SOR sent me an end with LH threads instead of RH. My main problem is that with all of the ends attatched I have to little "bite" into the rod. I can only get about 1/2" of thread bite. It seems pretty secure but I'm sure that it's not enough. The main question I had was regarding the steering arms. Are they specific to each side? Since the arms angle in to the tire it would all fit perfect if they were swapped and angled away from the tire. Also it may all fit perfectly if the new part from SOR has a longer threaded shaft. Sorry for the newbie questions but you guys have already helped me solve a ton of problems.

I found the problem. The tie rod is supposed to be around 42". The one on there is 39". New one ordered.:D
