Torque Specs

Does anybody know what the ft/lbs the lca's bolt require and have googled and searched and can find nothing. If you have a link to a site that has all the torque spec and ratings for our cars it would be greatly appreciated

definitely go with what the manufacturer of the LCAs recommends. Factory rear is 129 lbs/ft but, you don't want to crush the different styles of bushing used in aftermarket arms by overtorquing them. My UMIs recommend 100 lbs/ft.

The factory arm has a very thick sleeve to compensate for the rubber bushing and can thus take the high torque values. Aftermarkets with Poly, etc. don't necessarily need to run as thick a sleeve and thus, you should go with the arm manufacturer's instructions.

This is great advice. ^^^ Always use the manufactured recommend torque for any aftermarket part you buy. There may be small differences that you don't realize, which command a different torque. Keep in mind the manufacturing designed the part for you particular vehicle and chose the TQ that works best for their item!

I have all the TQ specs for a bunch of the aftermarket parts.I see if I can run a scan and post later.I would imagine they are very miuch in line with factory if not exact.It's important on the LCA's because to much will cause NVH and the inability to perform correct.
I just looked at some of them and the spindle bolts for struts 166 FT LBs. DO NOT do that much to a CC bolt or it will break I am sure.Being thats not a whole lot I would be damn sure the one bolt is right.Not a fan of CC bolts just for this reason.I hope to go CC plates but I have had good results with my CC bolts.BMR has probably the best IMO because you also can adjust more correction with there bolts.Most CC bolts are 77lb.s.AS for the question and rear.....The LCA's are 129 as I believe several mentioned.The damper weight on the axle is 45. Relocation brackets are 129 and panhard bar 129.There is a correct way of doing these things exact if you wanna be perfect you need to check or ask as you are doing things.Some stuff needs to be under load before TQ is done.PH bar should just be on and snug then put car down and loaded before the 129. OH and it is probably already said but the 4 bolts holding your strut mount and probably have or maybe not strut tower brace,but those 4 bolts are only 26FTlbs
What LCA are you installing? Car lowered? If so You need to read the link that explains angles of LCA's and how important that is.Thats why relocation brackets are a gotta have or adjustable LCA...If your LCA is running at all down from axle to body you will get less traction.You are actually lifting the wheels instead of planting.

If all you are doing to susp. at this point is LCA's only, then ADJUST IT TO EXACT AS THE FACTORY ONE WHEN YOU PULL IT.YOU CAN RUN A LONG BOLT THRU THE 2 (OE/EIBACH) MAKING SURE ITS SET AS THE FACORY ONE.Just what I would do if thats all you are putting on for now.

Right now just the lca's probably then uca's , then I will do coil overs down the road. I just like the coil overs cause you can adjust where you wanna ride, when I go to the track drop it down, when I just driving around jack it back up
