Its not about the tie rod ends its about the inners which vary in length, because Q-Rack doesn't guarantee an 02-03 compatible rack. Unless you provided the core, you generally have to wait until they start your rack to know what core you are getting so you can order your inner tie rods. BTW, Moog inner tie rods are a whopping $14 at Rock Auto, rounded up. Installing them with either a pipe wrench or an inner tool should take... 3 minutes? That includes the 30 seconds dedicated to putting on some Blue Loctite and another 30 for tapping the lock washers.

The OP's tie rod *ends* would have been compatible. I sure hope his shop would know that but I'm starting to wonder...
