Hi


I have a question someone know what it is the right torque in front and rear struts.

In my technical data say rear strut

Upper bolt 70 ft/lbs
Bottom bolt 110 ft/lbs plus 70 degress <---- I think it is much torque


In front strut
Upper bolt 40 ft/lbs
Bottom bolt (2 bolts) = 60 ft / lbs plus 60 degress


Can you help to know what it is right torque.

Thanks

Those are the correct specs according to my manual. I myself wouldn't worry if I only went 30-40 degrees more. It's very tight by then. Repair shops would just use a impact wrench and be done.

Thanks for your answer. In the Bottom bolt I only use torque with 110 ft and I feel maybe I could broke something, and in front in Bottom bolt i use torque in 89 ft/lb.

Thanks and greetings .
