    Hello i am new to this forum . I just picked up an 04 KJ. Been fixing it up. I replaced the rear uca . Just need to know once i have the ball joint in and bolted down . I lowered the jeep and then finished torqueing the two bolts down where the bushing are at. (With the weight of the vehicle). Is this correct or was i suppose to tighten up the bushings with diff. Raised ? -thanks

    That is the correct way to torque the bolts.

    On the rear it really doesn't matter much on the tri-link
    NOW the rear lower control arms and the front uppers and lowers yes it does as well
