Default EB tie rod flip

i just finished reaming my knuckles out for the early bronco tie rod flip. I flipped the tie rod over the knuckle and now the drag link hole is facing the wrong way. So now the draglink will not bolt up because the hole is facing the wrong direction. How do i fix this problem?

typically people run a high steer arm on the pass knuckle, but define "facing the wrong way" like, can you rotate it half a turn or did you turn the whole thing 180 degrees?

Yes, ream it out and use the insert to install it in the manner you need it to. Run into the same problem when using chevy tie rods and doing the flip.
