I just got everything installed with the del-um bushings. Lower control arms sway easily. Uppers sway with a little help. Are they supposed to swing freely ( very easily ) or is there supposed to be some resistance?

Don't overtighten the end-nuts for the upper shaft. Basically you want to tighten the nuts until there is no clearance (slop) and that's it. Grease them up after that.

Don't worry about the offset shaft for now. Use equal number of spacers fore and aft. With the car on the ground and at ride height add/subtract shims until the wheel is vertical. Use a carpenters level on the wheel to get it close enough to get it to the alignment shop.

Toe can be set close enough by using two pieces of angle or other straight stiff material strapped horizontally to the tire. Measure using a tape measure across the front and rear of the tire until both are equal.
