I just use an 8 mm socket on top of a handle (looks like a screwdriver handle). I torque it by hand to a low reasonable tightness.

what does it mean "to bounce the suspension?"
Before tightening the 3 brace lugs, you push the car forwards or backwards a few yards, while your buddy energetically rocks that corner. This ensures none of the parts stick or bind together due to some residual tension.
