Suspension work on superlifted wk

New MOOG upper control arms, MOOG inner and outer tie rods from Kolak (thanks btw), lower balljoint on the driver side, and driver hub. I'm doing all of this to get rid of an outside tire wear on the front tires. Everything is brand new suspension up front, so I am hoping that problem is solved. I was doing some reading on the forum and it said that some people let the suspension sit on the wheels before tightening the lower control arms. Does this sound right? Alignment is getting done tomorrow, I don't want them to do the alignment without tightening the suspension up correctly. Thanks!

Waiting until it's on the wheels is good for the bushings. You crank them down at a neutral position rather than extended. That said, I always forget...

Sounds to me like you just needed an alignment or maybe rotate your tires, but new parts won't hurt anything.

I had the shop doing the alignment loosen the upper and lower control arm bolts before doing the alignment. Im hoping premature tire wear is over.
