    Torque Specs for 2003 WRX

    I've just finished going through all the brake pad tutorials, and information about torque specs out there, but I have a question I can't find the answer to. What is the torque value for the 14mm caliper bolts on a 2003 WRX?

    I have the 2002 Service Manual, and it says it is 27.5 ft-lb for turbo models.

    Is it safe to assume my 2003 will be the same? Better yet, does someone have 2003 service manual and can they check? Or if you have it, but don't want to check, you can always PM me...

    Or should I just say screw it, and just guess? (I still need to buy a torque wrench anyway).

    I've only done a few basic things on my Suby, and I'm sick of relying on mechanics who don't care about my car. Any advice is appreciated.

    Chances are its the same spec...Actually almost every modern subaru in general from at least 95 up to 09 has a 14mm caliper bolt...
