Yes Fred, these are nos outer tie rods, no zerk fitting, one looks like it has a sleeve of some sort on shaft under the boot the other one does not, which one is correct.

There normally is no sleeve under the boot as it would not let the stud sit all of the way down in the taper of the spindle. Is this sleeve possibly the cardboard tube that goes between the nut and the boot on a new part just to make sure the boot stays put while in the box? You will need to carefully remove the boot to find out. It can easily be reinstalled. If you do ruin the boot, I have NOS ones.

Thanks Fred, you were right, it was a small piece of cardboard that had worked its way below the boot, this is a fine example of why this forum was sadly missed by us K-CODE owners, the answers to our questions are fast an dead on.

Thanks again,
