Yeah, I've heard or read that too. I personally didn't. I just paid very close attention to the one I was working on and went slow.

A lot of the instructions I have seen tell you to raise the front tires off the ground before you start adjusting too. This may help lessen the tension on the bolts but it's not really necessary. I used a long ratchet (probably a foot and a half) and didn't have any issue turning them. Just make sure you work the front suspension after each adjustment. If you bounce it by hand during your adjustments, make sure you take it for a mile or two drive and recheck before you decide you are done.
