Once you have alignment once you can align yourself.

If adjuster bolts are rusty then any kind of torque measurement is pretty useless and the alignment likely will not hold. Quick Trick makes a nice set up for DIY alignments, just a bit pricey if you are not in the states but still pays for itself pretty quick.

What do you mean by that?
There's no way 4 nuts on 2 control arms (didn't even check the other side) just came this loose. Including the sides where the nuts were brand new, because silverproject control arms were brand new and came with nuts...

Are you referring to this specific kit? Doesn't seem overly expensive
