    This is a well known problem with supply. Best solution is to get a new right inner and outer and put them on the left side. This is the solution of choice for many previously discussed here.

    Yes, 280 is the same as 240, up to 78. There are other solutions to adapt other tie rods to our cars documented on hybridz.org, but nothing simple.

    The problem is not finding listings for the correct right side parts, the problem is actually ordering and getting one! No one seems to have stock.

    so the mechanic says right side won't work because of the threading....I'll keep searching here for why not....cheers

    are there any more parts to buy besides the right side inner and right side outer to replace on the left side?

    That's it. Just mark the outer to remind you or your mechanic/alignment shop that the threads are reversed.
    if a little knowledge can make you dangerous, I'm a little dangerous
