setting front end ride height

I read on here that you should wait till the car was on the ground to tighten everything us, so the car sits right.

It seems that I can tighten the following while on the jack stands

Ball joints
Tie Rod ends
Idler arm

I assume these have to wait till it's on the ground.

Lower control arm
Cross link end bushings

Am I missing something. room is tight under the car when dropped 2"

Re: setting front end ride height

sounds like you got it under control
one other thing you should tighten on the ground are the sway bar mounts and end links
