Tie Rod Replacement

Hi Everyone,

Just finishing off my steering work and replacing the outer tie rods.

One of them screwed onto the steering knuckle tight, but for some reason I can't tighten the other one. It just seems to rotate the entire ball joint.

Does this mean that the rod is broken? Why did one tighten right up, and the other will not tighten up much past hand tightening?

Any help is appreciated (I bought pretty good quality, life time warranty, so it's not because of the equipment)...
