sway bar

Mounting my sway bar................
Everything is way loose,the wheels are off the car and the lower control arms are sitting on jack stands.
STILL............it don't look right.
Are the control arm bolts supposed to sit so close to the upper ball joints?
I kinda know I need to wait till the car is sitting on the wheels to tighten everything down.
But how does one properly align the front bushings?
thanks as always

Not to worry - that's how they look when the suspension is unloaded. When you get it on the ground with all the weight on it, that's the time to tighten it up.
