I've had the same problem since I have the new longer nuts like you have, Arctic Cat made them that way to strengthen the threaded area that was prone to bending. The dang thing fills up with mud and corrodes the threads, your best bet is to remove the adjustment nut and retap the threads on the tie rod. I need to pick up some anti seize and see if that helps.
Update: To clarify a little, there's only about 3/4" of threads on the wheel side of the adjustment nut, the rest of it is just a sleeve that covers the treads on the tie rod.
