Bolt torque setting on a few things...

Looked through the FSM but cannot find a few torque settings I need...
Shock tower to frame bolts:
Engine mount bracket to frame bolts:

Thanks!

Those really aren't critical as they don't involve moving parts. Google any bolt torque reference chart which will give you torque values based on the bolt size/thread type.

Personally I would use the German Gudentight torque value on those.

I am using the OEM bolts again on these...were they grade 5 or 8? Maybe less?

I see the charts and I need the spec of the bolts..


I usually use goodntite but thought I might check first and see what the ft. lbs. is..

The shock tower spec is not in the FSM as you discovered. Engine bracket to frame is in there but they call it the sill. They have a ridiculously high torque valve for those, but they are fine thread. I did CSPs method for both.
