So I'd think that practically speaking, only making sure the bolts won't back out is important.

By the way, getting the nuts off of the endlinks was murder - I couldn't use a ratchet and hold the Allen Key at the same time, so it took me 2 hours to replace those last 2 bolts.
Ya I had the same problem. Would a power tool help in removing those nuts ? The tools I have are pretty basic. I did try to loosen the nut with some lubricating oil but no luck. Either I am lacking the torque or the nut is rusted up. The car is 2 years old or maybe i am just mechanically challenged . Any ideas on how to remove that nut with relative ease. I gave up after trying for more than an hour - did not want to damage that nut.
