In the past I have mounted the system and not tightened the clamps. You put on the mounts and you should be able to twist and move the system around. It can be kind of frustrating as when you twist one part into position another one comes out. Just keep moving it around start the car and let it get hot make sure there are no major leaks (clamps still not tight so some leaking is ok) and no vibrations against the body. Then tighten the clamps and you should be golden. Not a fun job to do without a lift or pit. My wife and I are planning an addition including a new garage and she does not understand why I insist on a pit. (really only adds a few hundred $ if the building inspector will allow it.)
