Hello guys, I'm planning on replacing the control arms for my w203, and looking for suggestions to torque the the bolts at ride height.

Since they must be torqued at ride height, I'm thinking of getting wheel ramps and raising the front wheels only for more clearance to torque them.

Will I be OK torqueing the control arms with front wheels raised only? Or should I get 4 ramps and get all 4 tires up on the ramps?

An alternative is to place your floor jack under the steering knuckle and raise it until the frame lifts slightly from your jack stand, then torque the bolts.
