I'm planning to change my struts and control arms soon. I have KYB struts and the instructions say they should be allowed to settle, but give no guidance on time or mileage. Is there a rule of thumb for how long they should take to settle? Can they settle while the car sits, or must it be driven?

Presuming I have to drive or wait a while before alignment to let the struts settle, and I want to change the control arms at the same time as the struts... can I drive a while with new control arms installed? Or do I need to change the struts, let them settle in and then change the control arms and take it immediately after to get an alignment?

I have an '08 Frontier 2WD. I plan to get new tires just before the alignment as well.
