One thing... A question about torquing suspension nuts and bolts.

If I go and jack up the front of the car, put in a torque wrench or breaker bar and really tighten up the lower wishbone bushings (a clamp down held bushing) I'll essentially lock the bushing in a position when the suspension is fully extended DOWN... Then, when I lower the front end (normal operating position) this will put a tremendous amount of strain on the bushing rubber/poly which, in that, is twisted several inches to compensate...

1. Is my thinking right on this and,,, 2. If it is, how can I avoid this and do my torquing with suspension closer to where it would be during driving, normalboperating conditions??? There's no room for the tool.

I don't want to make a mistake that will cost me in the form of needing to replace bushing in 9months...
