Fitting new Bilsteins in front struts

Whats the best/easiest to tighten them?

In a vice, and then tighten as much as I can with some big grips, or that and then tightened abit more with a punch and hammer?

is this the collar for holding them in the strut casings ? I use stilsons or 12" adjustable pliers -often called "hens legs" or possibly plumbers pliers ?

Yeah the collar is on the Bilsteins them selves, unlike standard shocks. Basically how tight do they have to be, or just ft?
