Diff. tie rod end threads...

I'm having a problem finding the correct replacement for the pass. side front
outer tie rod end, on my 87 5kcsTQ. A few months ago I had no problem
obtaining the dr. side one. My mechanic tells me the end I just got for the
pass. side has threads (about 14mm) that are too large. He then tried to
obtain one with smaller threads (about 12mm) but claims he could only obtain
the entire assembly.
Are the ends different on the non-Qs? Perhaps a non-Q rod is in there?
Perhaps the entire rod was replaced with an aftermarket brand using larger
threads? Any ideas?
