When your done you may notice it move if you are lifted. The stock steering when lifted will tend to when the wheel is first moved roll the tie rods before actually moving the wheels. You can see this if you have someone turn the wheels while you watch.
When the collar bolts are loose, rotating the collar clockkwise (top away from you) will move the steering wheel Counter Clockwise.
I suggest loosen collar bolts move move the Steering Wheel close to where you want it, test drive, adjust the Steering wheel again, test drive again, THEN when the Steering Wheel is exactly where you want it, TIGHTEN DOWN THE COLLAR BOLTS.
