Torque wrench

Owning and using said implement is always a good Idea..saves a lot of broken bolts..

Both ends of both the upper AND lower control arms (ALL 8 bolts) should be torqued to 70 foot pounds of torque.

This is according to both manuals I have here and specs on another website I am a member of.

Not if you don't loosen them. You do not have to loosen them to install the lower bars. If you are buying SSM lift bars you will need to set the pinion angle. I would suggest you change the upper bushings to neoprene. It will make the lower bars work much better.
