    The middle strut top nut is 41 ft lbs front/rear, the outer nuts are only 14.5 ft lbs- be careful w/ these- they are studs pressed into the top and have been very prone to breaking when over torqued.

    Shouldn't this be a sticky? Or at least added to the FAQ!

    Thanks a lot for the effort. These specs were key during my unstall this weekend. I'm sure it took a lot of work and I just wanted to let you know you were appreciated.
