Crazy axle question

So, I bought new front axles from rock (always get great prices and quality parts from them)

After I tore my car apart the front right came out with male spline going to the hub and female going to the transaxle.

The part I was sent has male on both ends, I email stating I got the wrong part, today I get the replacement and it's the same damn part.

After searching around on the web the male and female ends come up in all my searches... am I crazy or is there a case where there are two different RL's that use different front right axles?

There's a half shaft you may not be accounting for?

I got this reply from RockAuto:
"We’re sorry for the problem with your order. We discovered that we had an error on our website, and the part you purchased will not fit your vehicle. As this is our mistake, we will issue you a full refund for the part and associated shipping."

This is the first problem I've had with them, I'm disappointed that with all this trouble I still have to order the right part, pay shipping and wait for 3-5 business days. Kinda b/s if you ask me but of course there isn't a phone number you can call to talk to anyone.

Welcome to the age of the internet ... with a little higher cost, ordered from the mom and pop they would own up to it.
