They are basically an aluminum sleeve that goes over the diff outdrives. ZS-501R is the part number

No that is not normal. You need to make sure the steering rack is perfectly centered, and then you will need to readjust you steering links and change the length of your tie rod coming off the servo. If it is not perfect you will have throws that are not the same. Best thing to do is measure the steering rack to find the center point. I would then measure across your chassis where the steering rack goes and mark that spot. Now line up the two centers marks and readjust everything else.

You should be only a one or two number differance on the throw if centered right.
