Front Control Arm Bracket Torque

I'm installing a transmission skid plate and have come to the conclusion that I will need to loosen the front control arm bracket to slightly adjust them so the mounting holes line up. The email I got from primitive-racing said "All you need to do is loosen the rear bolts a little and adjust the brackets so that the holes line up." I'm wondering where I can find what the torque specs on the bolt brackets are. After I do this, will I need to get an alignment done?

Thanks. I just downloaded the 2015 FSM which is the same generation. Do you know if the 2017 FSM is available somewhere?
