Starter position for powerflex upper wishbone bushes

Hi all, planning to fit new upper wishbones at the weekend, along with the powerflex adjustable bushes. Problem is I cant get the alignment proffessionally done until 16th at a place near my work. To anyone that has them installed and aligned correctly, what is the rough position that each sleeve (front and rear) should be offset as a starting point? e.g. if we say the upmost position is top of the arm @ 12 o clock position.

I want the alignment to be close as I may need to drive it a couple of times until the alignment is done properly.

Assemble and eye the wheels from hub height on a level surface with the suspension settled, then jack up and adjust, look at it again. Most cars have their front and rear axel track width different, so account for that. With the car raised, wheels dead ahead/straight, measure the distance from a place on the top arm to something on the body, then write it down, use the measurment as a guide to keep both sides even is another way and proberly easier if you don't have an eye for alignment!

Are you upgrading lower AND upper OR lower only as had been suggested by Autolusso and others?
