Is it possible to do this
432(140x)^3 = 60480432x^3
or do i have to expand it like this
432(140x)(140x)(140x)

The last way is correct.

You will have to expand it, your first line is incorrect.
test it with numbers...
e.g.
3(2^3) = 3(2)(2)(2) = 3(8) = 24
the way you wanted to do it would be
(6)^3 or 216
