Good call. I/m actually going to look into it for my SSK install. I'm using ramps in the front, but need some clearance in rear, but I don't want to use ramps jack stands because I live in an apt complex and it draw too much attention if the entire car is off the ground.

Thank you for all your suggestions.
In my experience it doesn't matter when you tighten the nuts because there is always a counter hold on the threaded rods to allow you to tighten them properly. My issue is that at specified torque, the bushes are squashed.

It definitely helps to seat the bottom in the lower mount first as it is tough to get it back in with the top secured. I did change my bottom mounts (Lemforder) but for those not replacing them, it should not be necessary to undo the bolts.

I have no doubt that stock mounts would've solved my issue but after a taste of the Monroe mounts, it is hard to go back to mushy foam ones.
