    Torque Specs on 2014 sway bars

    So I'm about to do a sway bar install on my 2014 WRX and I have question about how to torque the endlink bolts. If I'm not mistaken the endlink nut is removed and tightened whilst using an Allen wrench to hold the bolt in place. How am I to tighten the nut to a certain torque spec if I have a standard torque wrench? Am I missing something?

    So I found an adapter called a crows foot which is simply an open end wrench for the socket type torque wrench. I guess I'll be using that for the endlink nuts. I'm just surprised I've never heard of this before with all the install DIYs I've seen.

    Here you go. All proper torquing specs are discussed in the video, including the part with the allen wrench.
