Hey everyone - I'm in the process of installing the AEV 2" spacer lift on my JKU. I loosened the control arm bolts per the instructions, but it's not clear when I tighten them back up. I think I read somewhere that I should wait until the wheels are on and the jeep is back on the ground to do this step. Can anyone confirm this?

Yes correct , get everything put together then lower back down on ground , push the front around a little bit to get everything settled then re torque bolts

^^^^^^This is what is recommended.

I modify this a little bit. I lower the axles onto the jackstands without the tires on. This way the axle is supporting the weight as it should be, but the tires aren't in the way to access the Track Bar bolts.
