twist-up load: he's referring to something else moving besides the nut or bolt you're torquing on. What it would be in this situation is that if you have the car jacked up by the subframe, then the suspension might be absorbing some of your torque instead of the nut. What should be done is that the suspension should be supported by a jack, and you should apply torque in a downward motion towards the jack so that there is no flexing of the suspension that might absorb some torque. If you torque upwards, or horizontally, then bushings or the springs will flex.
