    the grooves down the length of the threads are to stop any potential pressure being trapped in the joint between the rack & tie rod when tightening it fully home as you are screwing the tie rod into a blind hole, if i remember correctly when i did mine the replacement ones didn't have grooves in them either. it's nowt to worry about.

    that is a 'relief cut ' , any crap/excess grease etc will enter the groove rather than fowling up the thread .

    also the hole will be for machining purposes ie... to hold the thing in place while its being threaded so it does not deflect and furk up the thread tolerance .
