Default Moog Center Link? Pics...Pls Look.

Well I am changing out alot of my worn out front suspension and steering parts, upper/lower ball joints etc. So far everything is going great, but today the center link was delivered and I am a bit concerned. The stock one has boots on both ends, however the new one only has a boot on one end...the driver side iirc. The other side has like a rubber bushing. The part is Moog DS80943. I triple checked and cross checked the model number and it is 100% correct. This is for the 2wd Frontier. The one for the 4wd is a lil different. If anyone else has replaced their center link either with a Moog, BerkArnley or other can you confirm whether your link looked as mine does? The side with the bushing is not moveable...the opposite side is a ball joint type and moves...Without removing the factory link, i dont know it this is normal. Maybe this is just a better design that the factory one?

I would say the boot is missing. Should have one on it. At least I am pretty sure.

Normally I would agree David BUT the stud on that sideis fixed...not like the other side. Wouldn't need a boot.
