    I put my Megan Racing strut bar on a few days ago. Gonna take her for a spin tomorrow, and I just wanted to make sure I tightened these nuts enough before I go (no pun intendedLOL). I tightened them to 35 ft lbs, that's what I've read. Is that right?

    I have a pdf file with supposedly "all" of the torque specs for every nut and bolt on there car. But I can't seem to find some things in there. That's just how it is I guess:hmm:

    It wouldn't be if you had a factory manual. They're stupid cheap too.
