I searched… a bunch… I promise. Im sure this is answered somewhere, but I haven’t found it. I really don’t think I am searching he tech library right tho. I actually may not have found the tech library.

… so are they the same on a 2wd?

Assuming your '94 then I don't believe so, usually on vehicles with steering boxes one side is left hand thread and one right hand thread so you turn the adjustment sleeves the same direction to lengthen or loosen... On vehicles with a rack and pinion the inner tie rods are usually completely spherical so they just spin on that end so they're all right hand thread.

Interesting. Seems like an odd reason to make a separate part. I wasn’t sure cause some online stores only list outer and don’t differentiate between L/R
