That is one heck of a run on sentence. Hard to read. You want to know how to tighten the bolts, while still up on jackstands? What is preventing you from putting the car on the ground?

If you have your heart set on doing it up in the air, I have used a bottle jack to lift the wheel end of the control arm to normal driving position, then tighten those bolts through the bushings.
