    How do you make adjustments to alignment when you use an ORD tie rod? The stock rods are adjustable, I don't see that capability in the ORD.

    One left hand TRE and one right hand TRE. Loosen the jam nuts and rotate the tie rod to either legthen it or shorten it. Then tighten up the jam nuts again.
