Default New half shaft, is this normal???

I just bought a new half shaft for the driver side on my 2000 SSEi & I'm curious about something.
The side closest to the wheel is stiff as hell while the inner side moves freely. Is this normal on a new shaft? I would think it is being that it is new, but it is pretty tight so I was curious before I put it in.
