I have never run a v8 tie rod but I believe they are not just a straight piece, I believe they have some shape from the factory. I'm sure ill be corrected if I'm wrong but I believe they look different from a xj one so don't freak out.

Like I said they I have never run one so someone correct me if I'm wrong

You're absolutely right. They are bent down in the center, sort of like a wide, flat, goofy smile.

This is a photo of a TJ but it essentially the same for the XJ. The V8 ZJ tie rod has a slight bent around the front gearbox but is much thicker and stronger than the XJ.
