Front Suspension Torque Values


Recommended Posts

I think I've interpreted teh torque descriptions for teh front lower control arm : big inboard 24mm nut: 123 ftlb; 22mm nut on radius rod 51 ftlb. But what about the three nuts that hold the outer end to the bottom of the ball joint?

Interesting, i cannot find it in our torque specs.  Wonder if it is because they came off the factory floor with rivets.


I think this will depend on the bolts used with the ball joint.  Untreated bolt torque specs for M8 are 


Class 5.6 - 8.1 ft lb

Class 8.8 - 19 ft lb

Class 10.9 - 26 ft lb
