Hey guys... Hate to bring this up but I was hoping that someone can tell me what the torque specs are for struts and shocks. I will be attacking the install soon but I want to be able to right the first time. I have read numerous thread of people installing them but no one mentioned what they torqued it to.

Thanks in advance!
