Just for the heck of it, I'd suggest loosening the lower control arms and rear shackles, then bouncing the car. A lot of times builders (restorers) torque them down before the car is fully assembled. This should be done after the FULL weight of the car is on the springs.
Garth is correct. I got a 2" drop loosening up all the new components on the RS front end with the weight of the car on the ground. If it gets tightened in the air, it won't settle down like it should.
