For lubrication, you coat the inside where the ferrule go liberally, then install the ferrules, and wipe off the expert. I will check on the codes for you

Coat the bushings. Keeps them sqeak-free. That crap is hard as hell to wash off your hands though.

do not coat the bushings,
as Mike said, apply the lube to the inside of the busing where the metal ferrules go, then wipe off the extra, and install the bushings in the car.

If you have inserts they do not require lube, just install them and your good to go.

no lube goes between the bushing and the car, just the bushing and the ferrule.

Guys,

what Rob is saying is critical. You coat the outer bushing and you will have problems and no warranty! We can tell if there was lube on the outer bush. And if you by chance have coated the outer bushing, you need to remove them, clean them with denatured alchohol, and reinstall.

grease between the two halves is ok, just not on the outside between the bushing and diff housing or what have you.

As for the alignment specs, two different types of alignment, you can't have both.
This is a good starting point, and will give you good street manners.
Front Toe- 0.0
Front Camber -1.0
Caster the more the better

Rear Toe 0.10
Rear Camber -1.0 (for drag racing you want 0.0 or even a little positive in the rear)
