'48 F-1 tie rod ends
 

Pulled a 416R (right hand thread unit) out of the driver side spindle and a
416L (left hand thread unit) out of the passenger side spindle.
Anyone else's truck like this? I'd have thought I'd find the left-hand
thread on the driver's side and a right-hand thread on the passenger
side.
I know it doesn't make any difference in life's big scheme, I'm just curious.

Haven't messed with my F1, but my 46 Deluxe is also as you described.

Sounds like the whole assembly is flipped over, should be left hand on drivers side.

it makes zero difference! 1r is right hand thread L is left hand thread so you can adjust toe.

Cheers

As I recall, the old Mopars I've messed with were set up the same as the Fords.
