is "hogging" a correct word for adjusting truss rod equipped cars

Robert kirkham

Off-list, I used the phrase “hogging the car by tightening the truss rods”.  A fellow questioned the word choice, and so I thought I’d ask this group whether they have seen the word used in this context?  What is the correct railroad phrase for the notion of tightening truss rods on a wood frame car so the frame is in tension and has appropriate resistance to the weight of a load?
