YEah. Attach the top well, torqued, double nutted, and have the adjustment locking nuts loose and the bottom not connected.

Drive up on ramps, and adjust them. With weight on the car, you can make sure that they are not near anything at the bottom side, and torque those and double nut those. Then tighten the height adjustment lock nuts (cinch nuts).

Also, as you tighten those cinch nuts, make sure that ball joint is nice and flat to the face of the surfaces you bolt to. Actually, if they are bend to the side, you can get awful banging too.
