YES!

It is far easier to tighten them when re-installing and if you ever need to remove them again.

I set mine at 0 camber in the rear to prolong a set of tires that were far worse than I realized. I could sense a slight difference but all in all it drove just fine. I doubt most would even be able...

That's what I would do but I've heard so few bottom end problems I would not mess with it. Swap your freshened up heads and water coolant pipe and put that in.

Geez at that point I would just pull the heads off and get a 3 angle valve job. That would put a lot of fresh life into the engine.
