Does this steering link look okay?

Was doing the usual fixings on the car, when I noticed this.

Is this fine, or does it need to be fixed or replaced?

Are you just worried about the angle of the outer tie rod end? because that's normal, its a ball socket, you can lean it back and forth with just your hand

This is a 2001 civic.

The reason I was questioning is because of the weird angle it was in. The owner was complaining of a intermittent grinding noise while driving, sometimes provoked by doing tight turns, so I checked the wheel bearing and brakes and wondered could this be a problem
