Installing Sub Frame Questions

I got a set of full length sub frame connectors to install.
The motor is out of the car at the moment but I'd like to get the subs in.
Is it OK to install the subs without the added weight of the engine on the suspension?

Have 1 or 2 of your buddies stand in the engine bay over the motor mounts.

Treat them to beer and pizza when you're done welding.

Highly recommend havng "everything" in the car (including fluids, etc.) before installing the SFC's, dont forget to load chassis correctly too. We "jig" up the car too. Hope you went with Maxi's units.

Spending $4500 on sub frames but they come with a little extra thrown in the box.

What does "jigging" the car entail? I planned on making some measurements to make sure things were level and square....is this not enough?
