Think about putting the rafter ties in place (not securing them) before pulling the walls back in. One thing I learned in reinforcing the cracked and sagging rafter ties in my garage is that they were in place before the roof was installed. Wrestling the same dimension lumber into the 24" OC gap without cutting it an inch or two shorter is practically impossible without possible damaging the wall or the roof.
