    torque specs

    did a search, couldn't find it. a little while ago i remember a thread that told almost every torque spec for many of the more common "tinkering" nuts/bolts. can anyone find this thread (moderators )? especially for the lug nuts torquing.

    yah, i used to just wrench them on, then one day when driving home in my Ac CL, one popped off (either over or under tightened), causing two others to pop off, i barely made it off the freeway. that was pretty spooky. thanks guys.

    yeah and improperly torqued nuts can cause you brake to warp easier, or if tey are cranked down so tight with an impact you cant get em off when you get a flat.(and your a wuss)
