Tie rod adjusting sleeve

Just as i pulled into the driveway my outer passenger tie rod popped out of the adjusting sleeve. I dont see any damage to the tie rod but i do feel a crack on the adjusting sleeve. Its all the way down it and its wide. Almost like its made that way. Is this how they are made and i can just put it back together or do i need another adjusting sleeve

The crack is supposed to be there so that when you tighten the retainer straps, it squeezes the adjusting sleeve together holding things in place.

Was it tight ,or do you think it may have backed out?Was your truck driving straight before it happen?This should never happen unless some one has made adjustments and left it loose .Make sure there are ample amount of threads into the sleeve after it is installed or you will have a dangerous situation on your hands.

it was letf semi loose from the last time it was replaced, who ever did it. The adjusting sleeve was ripping the threads off the tie rod. It finally ripped the last couple. I repaced both the tie rod and the adjusting sleeve. Thanks for the info guys.
