Changing rear shocks...

I will be helping a friend change the rear shocks on his 2005 Grand Cherokee.

Are there any special tips or tricks we should know before attempting this? Also, where can I find the torque specs that we need to know? I'm assuming we just need the specs for the upper and lower bolt on each side...

I just changed my rear shocks and didn't tighten the bolts to any specific ft lbs, it didn't seem an important area to be so precise. Just make sure they are decently torqued because you will get some clinking noise if you don't... and don't forget your LocTite!

Tighten the upper mounting bolt/nut to 95 Nm (70 ft. lbs.).
Tighten the lower mounting bolt/nut to 115 Nm (85 ft. lbs.).
