Regarding these steps, do these need to be torqued with the car at rest with the wheels on, because the TSRM does not show it.

If we can torque with the wheels off, how exactly do the bushing eyelets work? They don't actually grab on to the knuckles?

The movable sleeves grab the metal inside cylinder of the shock bushing. I imagine if you torque them with the wheels off the ground there will be some bias on the bushing with wheels on the ground. But he movement is small. Its not like a control arm where you can rip out the bushing if you tighten with wheels in the air. So I don't think it matters.
