Steering box tie bar question

I am doing a build up from scratch and while I have owned a D-90 previously I am stuck on an assebly issue. Specifically, where my steering tie bar inserts through the Panhard/chassis bracket, it is a complete mismatch on sizing.

The bracket has an approximate 1" hole and the tie bar shaft is approx 1/2". See the attached photo. It almost looks like the tie bar shaft should have some kind of bushing on it, but I also heard that this is the correct assembly. So hard does the tie bar shaft stay centered in the larger hole??
