Torque Sequence

Hello all,
I've got my front suspension rebuilt and I'm ready to put the car down. I've heard you should not torque some fasteners to spec until the car is on the ground to prevent binding the suspension. What fasteners specifically? I'm guessing upper/lower control arms for sure. Anything else? Thanks for any replies.

Any fastener that you loosened.

This is why a ramp lift (as opposed to a two post lift) is worth it's weight in gold in my opinion. Much easier to do front rend work on it than hanging in the air the way it does on a two post. In my seven bay garage I had one ramp lift and four two or for post lifts.
