Tighten the mounting nuts to 18 ft. lbs. (24 Nm). Or tighten the mounting bolts to 90 inch lbs. (10 Nm) and an additional 30.
thats off of autozone.com. When i printed off the things in december I swear it was different. Any ways, Im pretty sure I tightened them either to 12 or 18 ft. lbs when i did it over christmas. I took it to Firestone and they said that from the ticking its actually way to tight. They said I was supposed to tighten it to 89 inch pound(close enough to 90). I know the difference between a nut and a bolt, but i dont know as much as the guys from firestone. I have a 3100. what the hell is the actual torque and how much should it be to have them properly tightened at a mechanic(i dont have a shop now.
