The front lower a-arms bushing (the cheap round one). Is the inner metal tube supposed to turn with the suspension, or is it supposed to be locked in and suspension pivots on rubber flex? Do I tighten the retaining bolt to snug or to the point of keeping it from moving at all? Thanks.

The inner metal bushing should be clamped tight. There might be exceptions, but every rubber bushing like that I've seen holds the inner bushing tight and the rubber absorbs the twist. Along with that, it's best to have the vehicle sitting at ride height when you torque the bolt, if possible. If you torque it with the suspension unloaded, the bushing will be twisted at rest and may wear more quickly.

Thanks, that is exactly what I needed to know. I retorqued them with the car sitting at normal resting height.
