Have the Nik suite on my Mac to use as standalones, but now will be installing Lightroom. Should I uninstall Nik, then reinstall after Lightroom to have the plug-ins work?

When I installed LR5 after LR4 (leaving 4 on, since 5 is just beta) I didn't reinstall NiK, and they show up in 5. Then again, 5 kept some of my custom processing settings as well, so maybe it only did it because LR4 was still installed.

It won't hurt. It may work it may not anf you will have to reinstall Nik, so why not do it now.

To be safe, I would uninstall first:

then re-install, which should all go fine, but if not:
