They can be adjusted by loosening the screw where the wire connects to the mechanism and then rotating the wire slightly to remove the extreme toe-in.

Thanks for response,took retracts out completely and found screws, looks like they have ground flat spots on wire where screws hold in position,looks like a little filing
will have to be done to help with alignment.

Thanks again Joe,

Is it the durafly? If so when you change the toe, they won't retract properly, been there, done that! I put them back to original and doesn't seem to hurt anything, but looks goofy on the ground.
