Question When bushings are tightened off ground

When rear suspesion links and bushings are tightened with the car in the air, no jack/lift under the control arms ... this is BAD, right?

It would cause the car to ride heigher and wear out the bushings/links ?

What parts are most sensitive to causing this?

I believe the backend of my 87 300D is too high because the mechanic that installed the bushings/links tightened everything while the car was on the lift, no wheels, nothing to level out the control arms...

Thanks for any comments, suggestions.
