The pictures don't really matter. What matters is that the R&P needs to be in the center of it's travel when the wheels are straight ahead. The tie rods SHOULD be the same length at that point, but you have no idea if the rack is centered in the chassis or not (and "centered" means that the inboard tie rod ends are centered between the spindles when the rack is in the center of travel). If you center the rack and the two tie rods need to be very different to get the wheels straight ahead, then there's a fundamental problem with the location of the rack in the chassis.
