Default Rear Lower Control Arms: How Tight?

I am putting my new LCA's on right now and need to know how tight to make the 2 bolts that attach to the car. I'm not sure if they should be loose enough so that the lca can move, or if they should be so tight it cant.

also with my new lcas there is some side to side movement with the strut, do i need some bushings or something to stop the movement or is this normal? The movement is where the strut attaches to the LCA
