Triumph TR6 - Suspension

I just completed rebuilding the front suspension on my 73 TR6. All new bushings, upper ball joint,trunnion and tie rod ends. Are there any bolts that are supposed to be left loosened until the tires are back on and the car is lowered to the ground?

Thanks

Hi Jerry,
I did all mine last spring and I torqued everything to spec while the car was on the stands, I believe that it should all be tight before lowering it. I then had the alignment checked and found it was only out 1 degree,I guess it would have been different if I had changed my tie rods

The only concern I know about is with the rear trailing arms. So I think you are A OK
