Yeah it's normal, but did I actually say any different? I don't think

Well that would simply be a matter of measuring the shank on the link
and deducting the required amount wouldn't it? Why not just place the
ball links 90mm apart on a flat surface and measure the distance between
the centre of the shanks on each link and make the rod that length?
Working out how to do something like that doesn't require a degree in
rocket science, just a little thought.

Posting questions isn't the problem, but not using your head and
thinking about the problem before asking the questions won't help you in
the long run. If not being able to figure out the length of a rod
because you fit links to both ends is too hard, then I you're going to
be posting questions here every 5 minutes and NEVER get the ***y
helicopter in the air.
