Hi,

Is it normal for the track rod to have adjustments only on RHS ?

yes...the technical terms are leaving me at the moment, but one bar/rod adjusts the distance between the spindles (toe-in, toe-out) and the other the distance from steering box to opposite spindle. You don't need an adjustment on both ends.

First, they adjust the bar between spindles to get the wheels toe-ed correctly. Then, you pull the steering bar in or out until the steering wheel is straight based on the front wheels and their alignment. In other words, we use a computer here (I work for Bill Walker Tire Center) to check alignment. You bring the toe into the "green", and then adjust the steering wheel while maintaining the "green" alignment on the computer.

correct...but most other cars are not solid axles. They have control arms and spindles, and alot of them have rack and pinion where its all involved.
