If they're the original ones plan on buying new ones cause they usually break when you take them out

I used new ones, I don't believe they are torque to yield. If you have a Haynes or Chiltons it may state it in there.

Let me clarify. Its the uppers that usually break. And the contributing factor is the use of hand tools not impact

When I did my lowers I broke nothing, they are not TTY and IIRC it was 80 ft lbs or right around there. Look it up for sure but its in that ballpark. I did not touch the uppers as at the time the car had 50k original miles and if you've got the stock 4 link there is 0 reason to mess with the factory uppers unless it is to remove them for TA/PHB or IRS.

If the are not all rusty and stripped Just reuse them. I've never had any break on me. I've done plenty of rear end swaps and control arm swaps and have had a problem.
