Default '05 2500 Tie rod ends issue

Hi, folks...

Just have to change worn outer tie rod ends, and by a quick search on eBay I found at least two different types: outside and inside threaded, i.e. to fix with a nut or a bolt. This referring to the vertical end.

This is a pair of inner threaded:

And this one is outer threaded:

Moreover I see some vendors list them as RH or LH... aren't they supposed to be identical???

Please any help to clarify this will be welcome...

I have no clue, I know when I did mine I just order them of of rockauto and just followed with whatever it said. I picked MOOG far as brand but when it said LH it went to left, yes they looked the same but whatever I followed what it said lol.

on my 03 Ram 2500 the tie rod ends are the same, I have since upgraded to the T Link system and not sure if this is a valid point. Could the threading possibley be different? In order to align the front end? Just an idea. Hope this helps.
