While I do learn visually, I am primarily a logic learner -I read and research until I understand, conceptually and logically, the process or plan I will execute. For me, clearly understanding the end state and the concepts associated with reaching it is an essential prepatory step. Very few things in my life have ever gone smoothly or completely to plan - knowing the how and why behind a certain step or course of action is how I continue towards the desired end state when something not explicitly covered in the instructions happens.
So, with that in mind, I recommend you research your suspension. Understand how it works - you should know the function of your control arms, track bar, drag link, tie rod, pitman arm, shocks and springs. Get a feel for how the parts interact with one another so that when you start changing and modifying them you can develop a feel for what right looks like as a reference point.
It's a little bit like land navigation - as long as you know where you are and where you want to go, you're never lost...just en route. Directions might help, but you can make up your own if you need to.
