Just finished putting the transmission and subframe back in after fixing a input shaft bearing, but most of the suspension (lower control arms, knuckles, ...) aren't installed yet. The front of the car is sitting on jack stands (on the jack points behind where the front wheels would be) and I can put a 3 ton jack under the front center subframe jack point for extra support. Would it be OK to start the engine in this configuration? That way I can check a few things and it would be a lot less work pulling everything apart again if something's wrong. I won't be getting underneath the vehicle while it's running.
It's a front wheel drive car, a Honda Civic.
